About us

The hostel is a 15 minute walk from the Airport shuttle stop located at 1 Quang Trung St and approximately 1.5km from the Hanoi Train Station.

Hanoi International Airport is approximately 45min to 1 hour from the centre of Hanoi. Airport shuttles are about ($3US/person) and taxis for ($25-$30US) are available from the arrivals terminal.

A hassle free airport transfer can be arranged by us from as little as US$23 for a 4 seat car or US$25 for a larger 7 seat people mover. To have us arrange a driver to meet you when you arrive at Hanoi International Airport, please use the contact form on the right to send your flight details.

Be aware, some shuttle and taxi drivers operating from the airport, train and bus stations accept commissions for taking unsuspecting travellers to budget hotels that claim to work with us.

The Downtown Hanoi Backpackers’ Hostel is unmistakable with its large metallic with red lettering sign above the sliding glass doors, as seen in the above photo. If the shuttle bus or taxi stops directly outside a hotel that does not have this, you have been taken to the wrong address.
