Date of stay: 2019SEPT1-4

Last week, I went to a 3-day vacation in Hanoi and I can’t imagine that I only spend a few bucks on my stay. I booked a single bed on a mixed bedroom from that comes with free breakfast and I am very glad that through these I saved a lot of money.

  • The Babylon Garden Hostel 110000 VND
    53 Hàng Chiếu, Hàng Buồm, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội 100000, Vietnam
    – The location is very near Dong Xuan market.

The lobby. Designs are very ‘Babylonial’, like the old times.

The owner helped me book a limousine from the Old Quarter to For You Homestay in Ninh Binh. The communication with them was very easy since the owner and both of the guys on the night shift speak English.

The view from the rooftop bar/restaurant. It’s very refreshing to see this in the morning.

Buffet breakfast that comes with my .genius booking.

 The Deluxe 14-Bed Mixed Dormitory Room. Since I was on the top bunk bed, it’s kinda challenging for me to go up and down every now and then. The lockers are good and very convenient as the key is as the same as with the card key.

The indoor pool. I haven’t tried it yet I would love too if there was still time.

    16 Tố Tịch, Hàng Gai, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội 100000, Vietnam

The Bed in 10-Bed Mixed Dormitory Room. When I filled out the box for additional request on, I asked if I can have a lower bunk and theerrreeeee– I was literally I’ve got the lower bed (farthest bed).

The Bed in 10-Bed Mixed Dormitory Room. I just love how it’s private even though it’s a mixed bedroom.
