The Hostel’s feel is relaxed and friendly. The staff are there to help with any advice that you need to get you out, about and enjoying Hanoi to the fullest. We offer a complementary walking tour of the Old Quarter and the Cathedral area everyday from 10am. Please ask the Reception Team for more details.

Getting there

The hostel is just 300 meters north of the Airport shuttle stop located at 1 Quang Trung St and 1km from the Hanoi Train Station.

Hanoi International Airport is approximately 1 hour from the centre of Hanoi. Airport shuttles are about ($3US/person) and taxis for ($25-$23US) are available from the arrivals terminal.

A hassle free airport transfer can be arranged from as little as $23US for a 4 seat car or $25US for a larger 7 seat people mover. To have us arrange a driver to meet you when you arrive at Hanoi International Airport use the contact form to the right to send your flight details.

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.

In fact the Hanoi Backpackers’ Hostel is situated on a lane too narrow for shuttle buses and taxis to drive down. So if the shuttle bus or taxi stops directly outside a hotel you have been taken to the wrong address.

If you find yourself in this situation decline politely and make your way to the St Joseph’s Cathedral (photo below) on Nha Tho Street. If you’re facing St Joseph’s, look to the right, there is a large white sign with our Red Buffalo, that gives you the directions to our hostel. It’s located by a local noodle store that is on the corner of Au Trieu Street/Ly Quoc Su Street.
