Central Backpackers' Hostel
Cheap, cheap, cheap!
What we say:
True to its name, Central Backpackers' Hostel is located right in the Old Quarter, a few blocks west of Hoan Kiem Lake on Ly Quoc Su. Eight-bed bunk dorms and a couple of private rooms all come equipped with air-con, and while they're not huge, they appear well maintained with sturdy mattresses and clean sheets.
On the down side, one single-shower bathroom is all that's provided for an eight bed dorm, which could be an issue if needing to catch a morning departure. Still, large lockers and free WiFi are provided and, best of all, the hostel offers free beer for one hour every evening. That's right, free beer!
A range of tours are also available, including cheap trips to Ha Long Bay and Sapa. Staff weren't all that friendly when we visited, but with $5 per night beds and a free beer hour, we can't imagine their salaries are much to smile about.
