Vietnam Backpackers Hostel, Hanoi

Tied for my favourite hostel of the trip. Vietnam Backpackers is a large hostel with an even larger party vibe with events and drink specials nearly every night, free beer offers and fully equipped with a restaurant, upstairs pool table and various outdoor areas, Vietnam Backpackers Hostel has it all. Located in Hanoi’s Old Quarter, it has tons of local restaurants and markets right around the corner and the staff were always keen to help you find your way around. There is plenty of adventure to be organised through the hostel too, as they offer some of the most popular tours and day trips- including their infamous ‘Castaways Island Ha Long Bay Tour’.
