Downtown Hostel at night

Be aware, some shuttle and taxi drivers operating from the airport, train and bus stations accept commissions for taking unsuspecting travellers to budget hotels that claim to work with us.

The Downtown Hanoi Backpackers’ Hostel is unmistakable with its large, blue, neon sign above the sliding glass doors stating “Hanoi Backpackers’ Hostel”, as seen in the photos. If the shuttle bus or taxi stops directly outside a hotel that does not have this, you have been taken to the wrong address.

If you find yourself in this situation, decline politely and make your way to Ma May street where you can ask one of the local shops or restaurants to point you in the direction of our hostel.
