Search Hanoi hostels with up-to-date availability and book a hostel in Hanoi.
The capital of Vietnam, Hanoi , hasn’t always been a tourist hot spot but things surely have changed and the city is now a must-see place in SE Asia. It mixes the East with the West offering an interesting blend of Chinese influence and French colonial past.
The Old Quartered is filled with hostels and other budget accommodation. You’ll find cheap places to stay outside of this area as well. In face, there are so many to choose from that you surely won’t have any problems. But you need to find a place which is quiet enough that you can get some shut eye.
Do remember that hostels don’t cater just for backpackers and there is no age restriction. Most of them also offer private rooms so that you don’t need to spend the night in a dorm with 20 other travelers.
Hostels are excellent for solo travelers and for those looking to socialize. Whether you stay in a dorm or a private room, you’ll be using the common kitchen and lounge, so there will be plenty of opportunities to talk to the fellow travelers.
Do your research. Scam artists still exist here and you don’t want to ruin your entire vacation. Use the massage boards to find good places to stay and don’t be shy to leave once you realize the accommodation is not what you have paid for.
Prices range from US$6 to US$30 per night. For US$6 per night you can stay in a 3-bed private room right in the heart of the Old Quarter. And you even get free breakfast and wi-fi.
