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.

REVIEWS

Staff super welcoming, there are a lot of activities you can join in with in their other hostel- is really recommend their free tour. The area is quiet enough in the evenings but has loads of stuff going on close by during the day.

We absolutely LOVED our stay at backpackers. The original location was quiet enough to get a good nights sleep but within 15 minutes walk to the downtown location to party. Staff were super helpful and friendly. They do a stand up job with keeping the rooms and bathrooms clean. Comfortable beds and pillows. Great travel advice and helped us book the next leg of our Vietnam trip. Chill laid back feel with great people. We were sad to leave! Thanks for an awesome stay!
