Exploring Hanoi from Bong Hostel

Another highlight of our Bong Hostel in Hanoi is its location.

Bang smack in the heart of Hanoi Old Quarter, our hostel is a stone’s throw from all your favourite cravings. Fancy hitting beer street? It's a 5-minute walk. Need a good coffee in the morning? Dream Beans has you covered only 3 minutes away. And if it's local food you want, look no further than across the road where they have a Pho for every mood!

But whilst Hanoi’s Old Quarter can satisfy all your food and drink desires, its maze of narrow streets, each named after the goods traditionally sold there, are also filled with top attractions about the city’s history and culture. 

Here are some of the many must-visit spots and activities you can enjoy during your stay:

Hoan Kiem Lake

Just a short walk from Bong Hostel, Hoan Kiem Lake is a peaceful oasis in the heart of the city. The lake is surrounded by beautiful gardens and historic landmarks, including the iconic Turtle Tower. 

It's the perfect spot for a morning jog or a relaxing afternoon stroll. We like to take our postcards (that we promised we sent three weeks ago but haven’t yet written) or a book and sip a refreshing beer at one of the little cafes overlooking the lake!

Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre

Experience traditional Vietnamese culture at the Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre. Located next to Hoan Kiem Lake, this unique art form dates back to the 11th century and promises a captivating performance bringing folklore and legends to life on the water.

Temple of Literature

Visit the Temple of Literature, Vietnam's first university, founded in 1070. This historic site is dedicated to Confucius and has beautiful gardens, ancient architecture, and serene courtyards.

Night Markets

Hanoi's night markets are a must-see. From the bustling Dong Xuan Market to the lively weekend night market in the Old Quarter, these markets offer a variety of goods, from clothing and accessories to delicious street food.
