Hanoi Backpackers Hostel Ma May
A hostel to be looked up to
What we say:
Officially opened on Hanoi's 1,000 year anniversary (October 10, 2010) HBH certainly makes its mark on Ma May, with a wide frontage, seven floors (yes, there's a lift) and a lively bar/reception area. Owned and run by the same guys as the Ngo Huyen hostel of the same name, it offers 160 beds in dorms and private rooms, making it the largest in Vietnam, if not Southeast Asia. Dorm rooms are either mixed or female-only and contain 12 generously sized, comfy looking beds. Each bed has large, lockable, underbed storage as well as a small locker neatly set under a bedside shelf, for keeping small items safely tucked away. Top floor rooms have bathrooms in the rooms whereas on lower floors there's one large, brightly tiled, shared bathroom containing shower and toilet cubicles and sinks. Private rooms are some of the smartest around: simply decorated and with fantastic slate tiled spacious bathrooms. The fifth floor is dedicated to a guest-only lounge area, containing sofas, beanbags, TV, table football, internet stations, a bar and a decent sized terrace overlooking the street. The ground floor bar and restaurant hosts regular events and serves up decent food and well-priced drinks. If you want a hostel and all that goes with it, it's hard to beat.
