This hotel moulded great expectations for other backpacking hostels. It was nice to be part of their grand opening, ‘Halong Seoul Hotel ’. They do have a bar, club and restaurant all situated under one roof. Apart from sharing the common restroom with other travellers, both the female and male dorms have their own private restroom. The rooms and restrooms were kept clean at all times, the staffs were friendly and helpful; The manager was an easy-going person himself, if I do remember his name correctly it would be, Ben. Even after checking out, this was the one place we always returned to just chill out. The hostel was situated in a fairly convenient location, one can walk around to explore the old quarters. Furthermore the weekend night market, was set up just outside the doorstep of this hostel (the middle portion of the long stretch of night market). Breakfast was also offered at this hostel, though it wasn’t anything fancy it was still good. It was a great stay with them for five nights, would certainly return to this hostel if I ever find myself stumbling across the streets of Halong!
Stayed here for four nights and it was a fantastic! Free breakfast, free beer for two hours of the day and great staff! Celebrated my birthday here and I got a gift :)! Bottom bunks are much comfier than the tops, make sure you get a bottom. Very clean place AND they supply toilet paper in each bathroom, rare! Restaurant and bars in the same building with the night market right outside. Location in the heart of old quarter. They supply slippers and shampoos in your locker. Ben is the new general manager and Leanne's his girlfriend, they are so absolutely wonderful!
Absolutely loved this hostel. Came back three separate times in one week (after trips to Sapa and Ha Long Bay). The staff is the friendliest I have encountered in my travels in SE Asia and the hostel just has an overall good vibe. For 6-7 dollars a night you get a clean comfortable room with free toiletries, free breakfast (either egg with a baguette or beef soup plus coffee/tea and a piece of fruit), and water refills are free which is always nice! They offer free beer from 6-7 and 9-10 as well. The staff is always ready to assist with any questions or bookings and they even carry your bags up to the room for you (even though there's an
Amazing hotel! Very friendly staff and nothing is to much trouble! Rooms and shared bathrooms are both very clean!
A lot nicer than the backpackers hotel just down the road, and is only a 30 second walk away from the night life!
Only slight negative point is the top bunks are quite as comfortable as the bottom bunks, but still aren't unbearable!
We left our bags here for 3 days when we went on a tour of halong bay, and decided to check back in for another 3 nights as we loved it so much!
Rooftop night club which stays open to 3, but surprisingly noise is really heard in the dorms!
Massive bonus is having a breakfast included especially when you're hungover!
Really great value and would recommend to anyone!
