It was really nice! The people there is amazing. The only detail I would change is the cleanliness of the place.

The students are awesome. Dinners were always very fun and delicious. The place still needs some work, but the hosts make up for it in hospitality.

I stayed at the homestay a little under 2 weeks. Its a dorm for students from the local university who are learning english. The atmosphere is really laid back and I ended up bringing a friend for a week and they welcomed both of us in. The students are friendly and I felt very at home from the beginning. The work is super easy, just a few night english freetalk sessions with the students. There isn’t much to do since its about ~40minutes out of the city so I wouldnt recommend to travellers who are looking to do tons of exciting new things but its great for someone looking for a chill spot

The students and volunteers are extremely friendly and nice and enthusiastic to learn and meet new people. The job is very easy and fun (I wouldn't even consider it as job) and the area the homestay is located it's very lively and only 35 minutes from the city centre of Hanoi. Totally recommended to anyone who want to explore the real Hanoi and live the local life also, apart from sightseeing of course.

Only planned on staying two weeks, but ended staying two months. Come for the free food but stay for the people.

I rusley talk about 12 hours a week plus two hours of free talk which allowed me to connect with the students. Most of the residents that live in the Homestay are college students and their English levels will vary if that matters to you. you'll be living in a dorm Style building with a shared bathroom. there's about three to four people in each room with a bunk bed situation so it will be very difficult to entertain certain people.

I'll leave it at that - - I'd 100% visit again.
