The cost of the soft-sleeper train ticket is USD30/person. It takes 24 hours to travel from Hanoi to Kunming by train.

The train from Hanoi just reach Lao Cai province. Then you pass the border there. In China area, it's easy to find a local but to Kunming.
Hanoi - Lao Cai train takes 7 - 8hours
Lao Cai - Kunming bus takes 10hours.
The train that you refered is the train to Beijing, not to Kunming. It leaves twice a week.
