#1 Hostelworld Hostel in Hanoi in 2015!!

Located in the heart of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, our Downtown Hostel is the biggest hostel in Vietnam and is known for its legendary bar, nightly parties and is a constant a hive of activity. It is close to delicious street food, cheap Bia Hoi (local fresh beer), pumping bars.

Downtown offers both dorm and private rooms, all of which are air-conditioned during the night to ensure you have a comfortable nights sleep. Breakfast is included and we also have placed hydration stations around the hostel, especially important after a big night out!!

Our restaurant and bar serves up tasty comfort food, local Vietnamese food specialities and DAILY happy hours! We have awesome events including quiz nights, beer pong, themed dress-up nights and much much more… Good times are our business!

We also offer:

-FREE WIFI

-FREE computers for guest use

-FREE walking tours through the Old Quarter

-24 Hour Reception

-Airport Pick Ups

-Visa Invitation Letters

-Chill-out floor with a pool table, foosball and comfy sofas and bean bags

-Large TVs by the bar so you don’t miss out on your favourite sports

-Outdoor terrace

We have an awesome travel crew who are ready to help with all your travel needs and of course we can’t forget to mention that we are the home of the original Castaways Island trip in Ha Long Bay!

If you’re after more of a chilled out, homely hostel then check out our sister hostel The Original! It’s a short walk away from Downtown, just by St Joseph’s Cathedral.

Look out for our Red Buffalo and find our other hostel sites in Hoi An (DK’s House), Hue & Sapa (Mountain View)

We look forward to showing you an unforgettable stay in Hanoi!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

A big hostel in the middle of simple Ma May, a great place to meet backpackers from all around the world. However, if you're looking for a quiet space, this place is not for you. They also have 2 other branches, 1 in Hanoi and the other in Hue. The dorms are nice with your own lockers just below your bed, breakfast included, luggage storage and other amenities are available. Wi-fi connection not so good. Over-all, the hostel rocks :-)
