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

Absolutely awesome hostel, welcomes you with open arms. I felt at home. Staffs were incredibly helpful in assisting me plan my Vietnam travels and were very honest and genuinely passionate. Everything I could ever want, a comfy bed, delicious and reasonable priced food, activities during the day and evening for both drinkers and non drinkers. I will definitely return and recommend to anyone.

Would happily stay here again! Staff were accommodating and friendly, happy to give advice when and where it was needed on all types of things. Rooms were clean and tidied daily! The quieter of the 2 VBH hostels in Hanoi but great for chilling in after partying hard in the Old Quarter. Thanks to all the staff! Hopefully il be back.
