The hostel is calm, and It is a good place to meet international travelers.
The tasks and hours are ok, but as it is full everyday, and sometimes overbooked, as the only receptionist at the front desk at some moments, you need to deal with the problems by yourself.
The facilities are good and the breakfast is really good!

I painted murals at Drift Backpackers. In the end I really enjoyed my time in Hanoi and I am sad to leave it. One of the best parts of this volunteering is the community of volunteers with the sister hostel nearby. The Staff at Drift is super friendly. Isa, the volunteer manager, is hard working, kind, and always looking out for the volunteers. I think this hostel is in a bit of a transitional period in how they host volunteers, so there is some room for improvement. I will cherish my time at Drift and in Hanoi!

I had such a good time at Drift 💓 Right from the start, Isa made me feel welcome, always communicating clearly and genuinely caring about everyone. Drift has such a cozy vibe—it didn’t take me long to feel at ease with the staff and the workload. I loved hearing all the wonderful local stories from Xiang and Anna, and I learned a lot about Vietnamese culture and the best places to eat. The travellers staying at Drift were all so friendly too, always ready for a game of pool on the second floor and a great chat. Such a sweet experience! I’m gonna miss this place. ⛲️

Working at Drift is really chill and easy. Isa is responsible for the volunteers and she is super flexible and always arranges the best setting according to our availability. We have nice accommodation (shared dorm) 15’ away from the hostel, really nice breakfast, laundry and lots of other benefits.

Didn't have any expectations when I came to volunteer here, but I have really enjoyed it. The staff is nice and welcoming. The work is straight forward and not too much for being a volunteer. I enjoyed working with the Vietnamese women here as well. The best part about working here at drift is you end up becoming so close with the volunteers at the sister hostel. I've made friends I will remember forever. It truly all depends on who else is volunteering. I really enjoyed working here and will come back if I am in the position to again.
