Have you looked at the recommendations in the Hanoi section?

I liked the Kangaroo Guesthouse on Hang Luoc - a tad funky with bad breakfast, large rooms and very friendly staff - not a bad location either. Many like Hanoi Guesthouse, but they did not hold my reservation! Be sure to look at your room B4 putting $ down as many cheap rooms have no window at all. There should be several bargains now in Hanoi as the flood has scared away many tourists - go for it, Hanoi is a great city
(have you booked Hanoi kids yet -

In Hanoi , I've stayed at Hanoi Backpackers for 2 nights in July 07 and had a great time there. It is ultra clean, the cleanest hostel I've ever seen. Great communal vibe and great to chat to other travelers. Hanoi Backpackers will fit into your budget.
