IMG 1011The trip to Halong Bay is not to be missed. You will spend the first night on a boat in a beautifully isolated area. You will be led on a kayaking trip by your guides weaving in an out of the islands, and there will be plenty of time to spend jumping off the 15 foot tall boat into some of the prettiest waters you have ever seen.

IMG 1013The hostel is affiliated with a small, private beach, where you will spend the second day and night. No one has access to it except those who book their Halong Bay trip through the hostel. The island is completely private – 500 foot+ cliffs surround the beach on all sides, and it is fully equipped with kayaks, a beach volleyball court, ping pong tables and a stereo system. Feel free to take your pick of sports as well, including a range of water sports, or even rock climbing for the colder days.

And if a good, down-to-Earth hostel with friendly staff who help you plan your time in Hanoi and throughout Vietnam is not enough, rest assured that there is a bar downstairs (only open until 9pm), and that it is the best place in town to find friends to experience the Hanoi nightlife with. And believe me, Hanoi is very unique and not easy to navigate. Having some hostel buddies will make your stay that much nicer.
