How to book NEXY Hostel?
You just found our #1 recommendation for best hostels in Hanoi. Genuinely, NEXY Hostel is the accommodation we recommend to our friends, family, and to you! You will like it!
Good to know: For many travelers Hostelworld is the #1 platform to book hostels. It is a trusted and safe reservation platform.
With their clean and spacious design and the super comfy mattresses, you will have a great good night rest. We enjoy the colourful, city-related touch of design they come up with. Just have a look at the photo below.
Some of the private rooms even come with an en-suite balcony, overlooking half the city and Old Quarter.
Whilst we are talking about design, it is worth it to mention the stylish building from the outside.
The abandoned building was completely renovated and turned into the only 5 Star Hostel in Hanoi.
All that, from scratch.
The property is located right at the edge of the Old Quarter, tucked in between iconic buildings.
The white facade with its orange-coloured logo highlighting NEXY gives the building a striking pop out affect.
Overall it’s easy to say; NEXY Hostel comes with a clear concept design. Light colours in the rooms are mixed with a playful design in the common room.
3. Location and Design Mix
This luxury hostel stands out from all the other hostels in Hanoi for many reasons.
The location in the Old Quarter is not to beat.
You are in walking distance to everything you want to explore.
This is because the Old Quarter is the number one location every backpacker and traveller wants to stay at.
At the same time, the street itself it quiet and safe. You can have a good night rest without the drunken party-crowd in front of your window.
This is also important to mention; the Old Quarter can be really noisy at night.
This is great for you if you are looking for a fun night out. That being said, at this accommodation you can have a relaxing good night rest afterwards!
You will know what we are talking about once you step foot in the Old Quarter.
What about the breakfast at this luxury hostel in Hanoi?
Breakfast is free.
They are serving a simple breakfast of toast and cornflakes and it is served from 6:30-9:30 every day.
4. How social is the place?
Social vibes of a hostel are important and set hostels apart from other types of accommodations.
Nexy Hostel is a quality hostel, featuring several common areas so you can connect.
Right behind the reception desk near the entrance you will find a small lounge.
It is packed with seating opportunities and books about Vietnam.
It’s a great spot to connect.
Just by sitting here we’ve seen plenty of guests connecting and chatting, inviting each other to join them at a bar in the old quarter.
It could not be easier.
During our visit we also spotted a brand new bar area.
Here they offer drinks, perfect for a night-in.
On the first floor you find the main common area, separated into two rooms.
The first room is the games room with its own pool table and a foosball with a fun painting accompanying it. Do you remember the famous scene of Zinedine Zidane in the World Championship 2006?
Our personal recommendation for Ha Long Bay: Head over to Cat Ba Island, stay at the Woodstock Beach Camp and take their Private Boat Tour. We describe everything in detail in our review on Woodstock Beach Camp.
So, here you have it. The best place to stay in and a bustling City to explore. WE LOVED IT.
