The bus left 15 minutes late but arrived over an hour early. This sounds like a good thing but meant it was only 5am and still dark so didn't feel super safe and far too early to check in to my hostel. The bus itself was fairly comfortable and I slept well. But it could do with a decent clean and the rubbish hasn't been cleared away from the previous passengers. The toilet didn't smell great, I tried not to use it.

Chaotic - no seat allocation; people were moved many times by the staff. The bus was dirty. Chewing Gum was all over the place.

Took the sleeper bus from Hue to Hanoi. The bus was on time an arrived early. There was slight confusion which bus to board as there were several leaving at same time, but the lady in the Grouptour office guided us for the right one. I was worried after reading bad reviews, but was pleasantly surprised. Bus was clean and smell-free, seats were comfortable. There was a toilet, pillow and a blanket, no wifi. I was seated at the very back and it got really hot, eventhough there was a/c on board. There was one toilet/food break during the ride. Overall it was a very exciting ride! Definitely will ride again.

The sleeper bus was not cleaned after the last service, so I found some dirty stuff and bad smell in the bus at boarding.

Wir hatten eine zweier Kabine und für uns war das bisher die komfortabelste Art in Vietnam zu reisen. Es ist aber ein verhältnismäßig teurer Luxus. Je nach Länge der Reise sind ein bis mehrere Essen inklusive, es gibt aber keine vegetarischen Optionen (musste auf Reis mit Kohl zurück greifen). Klimaanlage lässt sich nicht selbstständig regulieren, das Zugpersonal übernimmt das aber für einen, wenn man darum bittet.

Apart from the noise of the train which can't really be changed, we had a great experience. Only a minor issue was even though we were able to lock our cabin door from the inside people still could still access it from the outside (staff) and they kept opening the door for no reason -or at least they never said. The beds were okay for what they were the only issue I had was they don't change the linen over between people but I had a sleep sheet as a protector.
The biggest downfall were the bathroom amenities, they were extremely unclean and unkept and without toilet paper. A couple of the toilets were also under maintenance so you had to go up carriages looking for a free one

Overall comfortable and on time. The sheets are dirty if you take the train in Hue/Danang as they don't change them between guests

Train was on time, decent hot food was offered and the bathrooms were kept clean. Much better than on the more expensive tourist train we took the week before.
