Central Backpackers Hostel - Original Reviews


A true backpacker's hostel owned & operated by an Aussie and a crazy Vietnamese guy so I threw on my cape and created a hostel like no other and you know we've got it right! Why only 5 bucks you ask? 'Looks so good, there must a catch. Is there hidden costs?' Nope! ....you're a backpacker right? You're on a budget right? So we cater the price to your needs!
Once you are here ... You simply won't want to leave!
So glad to let you know we opened a 2nd one, call Central Backpackers Hostel II located on 11 Hang Manh st., just walk down the road from our original one 100m. Central Backpackers Hostel II a brand new hostel with all of the same charm and deals to suit the needs of today’s travellers with no hidden costs. Also still cheap for those on a budget and as always we will cater the price to suit your needs!

+ We offering dorm and private rooms, our prices include breakfast, free beer, internet, wi-fi, all day tea, linen, towel, tax and helpful staff with friendly advice.

+ The best things about central backpackers are the crazy travellers, super friendly staff, comfy beds, free internet, breakfast and most of all free beer!
Air conditioned, clean rooms, hot showers and did I mention free beer.

+ Tour: Do the Halong bay and Sapa trips with us, we guarantee you will get the best time and the best one with the cheapest price! And also we are the 2nd organizer Halong Bay trip for guest booking only through the central backpacker’s hostel only. And it is the 2nd tour in Hanoi that stays on a private island in the Cat Ba National Park where you can find the Bungalows on the private beach, go for Rock climbing and doing the party...

+ If you're arriving at Hanoi International Airport, we highly recommend booking your airport pick up through us. There have been numerous reports of taxi drivers taking customers to another hostel that pays them commission, claiming your hostel is full, has moved location, or has been knocked down by an act of god. The best way to guarantee a hassle-free transfer is to book through us for $14.

We look forward to meeting you and remember; happy hour starts at 8pm!

Our reception is open 24 hours.
