I when opened the Hanoi Backpackers’ Hostel in late 2004 with my business partner, Mick Francis, everyone wished us well and thought we were nuts. The beers we had been drinking at the time told us it was a good idea so we gave it a go and we have been here ever since.
The business has grown from 42 dorm beds in a little hostel in Hanoi to an operation that accommodates 500+ in Hanoi, Hue, Ha Long Bay and our private Island in Lan Ha Bay. And with plans for World Domination we will not be stopping anytime soon!
Our philosophy is simple “Treat our guests, staff, business partners and suppliers as we would like to be treated ourselves.” Our main marketing tool is beer. We are a Backpackers after all.
