Situated down a small, quiet lane opposite the famous St. Joseph's Cathedral, the Original Hostel is where the VBH story all began! The hostel is a short walk to Hoan Kiem Lake in the center of town, and is perfectly located to explore and get lost in Hanoi's historic Old Quarter. The chilled out atmosphere on both the rooftop bar and in the downstairs hangout area is perfect for planning travel and mingling with other fellow travellers.

DAILY EVENTS

GETTING THERE

Hanoi International airport is approximately a 45 mins to 1 hour drive to the hostel. Getting local metered taxis will cost you around $25-30 USD and are available from the arrivals terminal. 

We can help to organize a safe and hassle free airport transfer from as little as $23 USD for a 4 seat car OR $25 USD for a larger 7 seat private car. We can help to organize a driver to meet you when you arrive at the airport if you book below or under the tab “more”.

Please note that this service is only available between 6am-10pm. Be aware that some taxi drivers operating at airports, train stations and bus stations may be accepting commissions from other hostels claiming to work with us. 

Original hostel is situated on a lane too narrow for shuttle buses or taxis to drive down. If you find yourself in a situation where you have been taken to the wrong address, or they are claiming you are directly outside the hostel, politely decline and make your way to St Joseph’s Cathedral on Nha Tho Street. If you face the cathedral and then head to your right you will end up on Ly Quoc Su Street and Ngo Huyen is located on this road.

Amazing stay, amazing staff

Spent 3 nights at VBH in Hanoi, Alex and the staff were amazing and helped us with all our forthcoming Travek plans! The hostel is clean and wel organised! Drinks deals fantastic and the atmosphere exactly what you want for backpackers! 10/10 for me and will definitely be back on our next loop of the world!

Amazing Backpacker Hostel!!

This Hostel is one of the best places to stay in Hanoi if you want a great social atmosphere!  The staff are extremely friendly and also very helpful and will go that extra mile to help you out with information about Vietnam and also help you plan your trip to make everything seamless! They also have fantastic facilities and delicious food as well as a luggage drop so you can store your luggage while you do one of their incredible tours, my personal favourite was the Halong Bay Castaway and also notorious Buffalo Run! They also have a free Walking tour for you to do when you arrive in Hanoi so you can familiarise yourself with the city and get your bearings before heading off on their Pub Crawl!! Would like to personally thank Alex the Manager for organizing my trip, he defiantly made my time in Vietnam a trip to remember!

Great hostel - best staff

I stayed at the hostel for three nights, one in the dorm and two in a private room and would highly recommend the place. The facilities are good value for money, the food is great ask and the staff are even better. They will offer travel advice, help arrange tours, lead you on pub crawls and just generally ensure everything is sorted and you're having a good time. I went on the Halong Bay Castaway tour organised by the hostel, it was really well run with amazing scenery and a great atmosphere, a must do when visiting Hanoi. Additionally I broke my ankle while in Vietnam and the staff went out of their way to look after me; helping me with moving around, carrying my bags for me and just generally making sure I was alright. I'd highly recommend the place for anyone traveling to Hanoi (or any of the other hostels they have)
