Dong A Hotel
Good central budget place
What we say:
Sandwiched among some middling, tourist-oriented hotels, the Dong A has been offering the cheapest dorm beds in Hanoi for years. Strangely, they have had surprisingly few takers. The beds are basic and nowhere near the standard you'll find in other hostels, but they're comfortable enough and each comes with its own fan and electrical outlet, and a curtain for privacy during the night. They keep things clean and acceptably odour-free. You'll have to negotiate with your bunk mates as to when to turn off the overhead fluorescent lighting, but other than that, it's a good deal for the price. There are some caveats: only one small bathroom serves 20-plus beds and it can be difficult to get in, or out, during night hours. Still it's a good place if you want a cheap sleep, just want to catch some kip during the day, or you have an awkward layover that doesn't span the night. Rooms here, too, are decent. Though they have few exterior windows except on the upper floors, they are sufficiently well done-up, roomy and comfortable. Depends on why you're in Hanoi, but if you've just had all your cash cards stolen and are waiting for new ones to arrive in the mail, the dorm here is the place you want to be.
