    There are a lot!!!!!! I found some nice hostels and guesthouses in the same street where the HAnoi Backpacker's Hostel is. That street is nice too, so I'd suggest you went there and then make a decision once you're there.

    I stayed at the Real Darling Cafe Guest House. It's on Lonely Planet. It's pretty crappy but clean, quiet and very cheap: 6$ single room, private bathroom and free internet...YOu can't go wrong with that...

    U won't go wrong with the Hanoi Backpacker's Hostel - friendly boss and staffs, very clean environment and lots of energy from the backpackers.

    Another way to deal with this is to just stay anywhere and go to the bia hoi at night to interact with fellow backpackers.

    Everybody i've met seemed to be quite happy with Hanoi's backpackers hostel as they were getting free coffee and more stuff, though they all said it was quite expensive for a dorm and far too small. I don't know, I wasn't there myself, but there are plenty of backpackers on the street and they all go to the pub at the same time so it doesn't really matter where you stay...

    Every one can not stay in every hostel so it is sometime just give your idea about your pleasant when staying in any hostel. If you like the crowded hostel and exciting, it is Hanoi Back Packer, then, if you love the peace and the beauty of Hoan Kiem lake and the Old street,just come to Hanoi Family Hostel at 38 Cau Go str. So, who tell you that what is the best hostel? and why? Location, cleaness, comfortable, services and staff?

    I have to say, I find it a little curious that you would travel half way around the world in order to interact with other tourists.
