I spent my first three nights at May De Ville and was content with the room, the bathroom, and the breakfast, though I will comment that the staff were very unfriendly and not terrifically useful. Stay here for the simple comforts of a clean, inexpensive room, but for nothing else.

Don't expect anything fancy here. The hotel / hostel is in a prime location in Old Quarter, which does mean you'll need earplugs if you're going to bed before midnight. After the bars close at that point and upto around 10am it's nice and quiet tho. Breakfast was alright, but again nothing special offering good Vietnamese options and very basic western food, set on the 8th floor. Note that the lift only runs until the 6th floor and there are rooms on the 9th as well. Checkin policy was very strict but fair and luggage storage is available. We had a double room and sheets & linen is provided without extra cost. The room also has a safe free of charge. We used a pickup from the airport, and even though it took an hour to clear passport control we were able to easily arrange the pickup.

We stayed here in January 2017! The staff were so accommodating and very friendly! We booked our train south and our hauling bay tour with lily she was so helpful and answered all our questions she let us use all the facilities before we even checked and after we checked out! The rooms were clean! While we were gone on the baking bay tour they kept our bags for us so we only had to bring a small bag! It made this way easier for us! Lily recommended a lovely restaurant around the corner with delicious soup! Brilliant place to stay with great staff and great value 👍🏻

For the third time in ten years, I have put up at Maydeville Backpackers hostel. In a “superior “room because of its attractive price and good location. BUT.... The springy mattresses have come to the end of their life I would say.I had to ask for an extra quilt to make up for the uncomfort ot the springs.A problem with the shower ( fixture was loose) which I must say was sorted out within minutes . The laundry was a disgrace.It has been the first time in my travelling experience ( thirty years )I have been given back laundry nearly as dirty as it was.I assume they just rinced the clothes !!!!!!!!!!

My Uber driver couldn't find this hotel since the hotel is on a small alley. But actually the location was good. It was quiet rather than right on the street so I liked it. I don't expect a lot when I booked this hotel but this hotel was great. The staffs are pretty friendly but slow response. I asked for slipper but they gave me on my second night. Haha. The room was clean and I feels like in a five star hotels. Okay maybe four. The breakfast was pretty good, but they were not all set until 8 pm and they runs out of food sometimes. It was a good stay. The funny thing is when I want to check out at 4 am, the front officer was asleep on his chair. And he was only get the room key, giving me my passport back and back to sleep even when I still waiting for my Uber. And the bellboy also sleep in front of the hotel's door! Haha. *there, there, go back to sleep.

The only redeeming quality about this hostel was the service we were given before we checked in in relation to booking a cruise in Halong Bay so we wouldn't have to stay here more than one night after a bad experience at another hostel. The location is fabulous, but not worth a terrible sleep with no where to charge your phone/laptop in the room, no provided towels (for a fee, wtf?), "breakfast included" is a barely working toaster and a full view of the staff cutting bread on top of what looks like a washing machine or a freezer from where I'm sitting in the dining room, days old looking fruit and some Bain-Marie food that my partner and I just steered clear from. The rooms were damp as well as the pillows and linen, the beds were the most uncomfortable we've had so far, and the bathroom is just unacceptable - there wasn't even any soap provided for you to wash your hands! The shower handle was broken so the whole time I just had to hold it to clean myself, while a very strong cigarette smell was wafting down through the ventilation. Adding to that there is less than a metre in width in the bathroom as the toilet, hand basin and shower are all positioned in a line so you have to waddle like a crab just to get anywhere in the bathroom. You're literally just paying for a bed when you come here, so if you can brave a bad sleep then it's fine, but if you're already having a bad time with hotels/hostels and are lacking sleep then don't bother.

Conveniently located, near all the action, however, quite enough. Not far from all main sights in Hanoi. A good choice for young people looking for a cheap place to stay in the center. This staff is very helpful. The only disadvantage was breakfast - not tasty.

This hostel is right in the middle of everything. Restaurants, cafes, shops, night market, bars, the beautiful hoan kiem lake and many other places to visit are all within short walking distance. The rooms and bathrooms are neat, and cleaned daily. There is a good breakfast included. The staff are polite and helpful, and theres a rooftop area with a clear 360° view from the 11th floor. I will stay here again.

I booked the deluxe room with city view. I didn't expect much and thought all i can see will be the walls of other buildings. Turns out, it was as good a view as you can get of Hanoi old quarter from above. The room is small, but nice and clean. It's on the 8th Floor. And there is a rooftop which is accessible. The contact person, Lily, was very helpful and responsive of all my correspondences arranging a trip to Halong Bay, airport pickup etc. Location wise, I'd say it's kinda in the middle of all the activities. A few minutes walk to the night market, to the lake. The hotel entrance is in the side lane from the road. Breakfast is on the top floor, buffet style, a mixture of local and western foods. In conclusion, it's worth the value you're paying for.

I stayed here 1 nights with my family. A great little hotel within an easy walk to the old town center. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Staff was so friendly and kind, especially the bell man. In general, this is a very comfortable staying at a reasonable price.
