A brand spankin new hostel owned and run by three Aussie backpackers. Created by backpackers FOR backpackers, we'll make sure you'll have a great time in at our place!

The large communal movie room is great place to relax, enjoy a film, surf the net and meet new mates. A huge 50 inch widescreen plasma TV with surround sound provides an excellent cinema experience. A book exchange and free computer terminals allow guests to research that next destination or swap over their old books for a new read. A wide range of card and board games to use and of course plenty of seating to relax and feel at home.

Tequila Mockingbird is the name of our rooftop bar, and this no ordinary backpackers bar. Not only does it have the best views over Hanoi but offers the best drinks as well. Ice cold draught and bottled beers, delicious wines, a huge range of spirits and expertly made cocktails combine to give a fantastic night for all. Take up the challenge on the Pool table with weekly competitions and great tunes to keep those feet tapping. Heaps of drink specials and events going on weekly.
