Dien is a fantastic person. He immediately responded to my request and picked my up with his motorbike, even though he had to change his personal plans. He introduced me to his friends and we had a great time in the city centre. He helped me get around in Hanoi a lot! We had interesting conversations and laughed. His house is clean. Spending time with Dien is pure pleasure.”

Recommends Dien

Was so glad to meet Dien! I wasn't hosted by him, but Dien kindly took me around Hanoi and places outside the city. I would like to say he's one of the most helpful people I've ever met. It's a big fun to go out somewhere in the evening and hang out with his numerous friends!!!”

Thank you!

Well, well.... what to say about my new friend Dien... I have traveled the world to many countries and have met numerous people from all ends of the earth. I can count on just one hand the real, honest, and kind-hearted that I have met and will never forget. Dien is on that list! I visited the mountains of Sa Pa in Vietnam and unfortunately was in a huge motorcycle accident. Without the slightest hesitation, Dien was there to pick me up, assist me and help me to attend my medical issues. We hadn't even met until the night of my accident. So, for an individual to go out of their way to assist me the way that he did, put his own life on pause, and stay up late waaaay into the night for a stranger, speaks volumes of his character and huge heart. If you are planning on visiting Hanoi, Vietnam - whether you stay with Dien or not, he is the sort of individual that you should connect with. A friend for a lifetime! Dien, I thank-you for everything you did for me and will always remember your kindness. One day, I will return the gesture when you visit Canada. (Well... minus the accident part. LOL) All the best in life! Colin

Lucky to met Dien in Hanoi! I got to stay with him one night and shared some time together. He was really generous, picked me up in the bus stop and gave me a tour around the city in his motorbike. He also helped me to arrange my trip to Sapa in the most 'local' way as possible. He will always try to organise everything for you and make the most out of your time in Hanoi :). Hope to see you soon my friend!

Confirmed Stay

Dien was very friendly and show me the place around, he was very nice. I arrived quit late, but he still wanted to pick me. I think, you should definitely contact him to hang around Hanoi. However, it is better to bring your material to sleep at his house, because he does not have a couch for you, so it may be a bit tricky... Overall, He is a very generous person.

My stay at Dien's was so nice! He always tried to help me with advices about the city and Viet Nam in general. Also, we went out many times to local places, trying out the Vietnamese food. In conclusion, he was a wonderful host! I learnt a lot about Viet Nam and Tet holiday with him. So, definitely I recommend him!

Dien is the most kind person I ever met! He is an open person with a big heart and ready to share everything with his friends and guests. He can find new friends everywhere because he is so easygoing, friendly and positive! I had really nice time in Hanoi. Now I know a lot about traditions in Vietnam. I was lucky to celebrate Tet ( Chinese New Year) with Dien. We went to the trample, he prepared traditional dinner for new year eve and we went to watch fireworks. He also showed me the most beautiful places in Hanoi and took wonderful photos of me. We went to Halong bay by motorbike and it was such unforgettable trip for me. Dien is the best host ever! I'm happy to have such a good friend like you ! Thank you for everything ! I will never forget my time in Hanoi and Vietnam . And for sure I'll be back ) see you soon)

See you again

Dien is an amazing person! I met him through another CS host at first. And Dien was kind enough to let me stay with him for two nights. He is one of the nicest and most kindhearted persons I've ever met! He is a good planner, and he knows all the good places in Hanoi! I had the pleasure of driving around with him on the back of his scooter, and I got introduced to sticky rice, rice ice cream, egg coffee and rice soup. And it was all delicious! We went to several bars with amazing live music, and every day was a joy with Dien as a host. I truly felt I learned a lot about the Vietnamese culture and history through CS. Something I never could've felt if I blindly followed a guidebook. I can only speak positively about Dien - he truly has a big heart. I hope to see you in Denmark one day - you're always welcome! I wish you best of luck. You only deserve the best!

Great host. Great person. I stayed with Dein for about 4 nights. While he worked during the day I cycled around the city trying to get parts for my bicycle and at night Dien would take us around the city on the back of his moped. It was such fun. Over the weekend we met with other couchsurfers, saw the lunar eclipse, we out to a music festival and ate a lot of Rice Ice Cream. Hmmmm I miss the ice cream everyday. When I got my bus to Sa Pa, Dien helped me buy my bus ticket and waited with me for about 2 hours. It was such a nice thing to do. Dein, you are welcome to visit me whenever I settle down some place. Thanks Dien, Innis

I miss you and Hanoi

It is not possible to describe in a few words the experience me and my sister had with Dien in Hanoi. We was one the best hosts I ever had: he hosted us four nights, took care of us, drived us around the chaotic streets of Hanoi, showed us amazing places, tasty food and the life in Hanoi. Kind, respectful, funny and inspiring person, good heart. My dear friend Dien, take care of you and your beautiful cats, I send you much love! Until the next time we meet, wherever in this world! Hug

You are a beautiful life

The reason I contacted Dien in the first place was because I needed a laptop from someone to take an online exam on to get into my university. I wrote him and several others and he was the first to write back and said that I could use his laptop for this exam. Everything with the exam went well and I ended up passing the exam and I got into the university I wanted. Besides from staying at his place studying for the test, I hung around with him and my Italian friend (wich he invited directly when I mentioned that I had a friend that was also in Hanoi). Dien showed us around Hanoi on his scooter and introduced us to lots of friendly people. I had so much fun with Dien and he made us laugh so hard so many times. Dien is amazing and always tries to amuse or help you. Bye bye friend! All the best!

Good bye my friend !!!

Hi Dien, i leave this refference directly to you. It was wonderful to meet you, you are really nice and warm person, good to talk with. To the others: Dien took us to drink the wonderful egg coffee, where we made a wonderful picture together, we went also to have a beer and small diner. He is quite open to people, and would love to meet you. Maybe you wil have the luck to take you on his motorbike, which if it is first time would be really nice feeling for you. He was helpful and found a gallery where i can visit. We continued writing even after we left Hanoi, he is eager to help you through all Vietnam. I recommend meeting him. See you again some day again, my friend.

I will come back to your home

I had a great experience with Dien, we spent all day long together seeing Hanoï's best spots, trying out some delicious Vietnamese food, going to the Temple. He's really kind, thoughtful and I love above all that he has an eco-tourism company so we had a lot to talk about. I think he's a great tour guide and I had an awesome stay thanks to him.

I miss you and Hanoi

It was my pleasure to meet Dien in my last days in Hanoi. It's funny that we lived quite closed to each other for 2 years and never met. Dien hosted me for 2 days as my flight was delayed and helped in all my last day problems (docs, last minute shopping, etc). We share some time and experience together and I will definitely happy to meet up again when I'm gonna come back in Hanoi. Dien, you are not only the best local guide that I ever had but also a good friend. Thank u and hope to see u again ;)

you are a awesome guy !!!

If you are in Hanoi and have found Dien, you are already on the right track and it's guaranteed you'll have the best of times. He is such an attentive host, no one compares to him. You will get a free moto-tour around the city (no other way to see Hanoi really!!), eat the cheapest and best food, and learn a lot about the way people live and think in Vietnam. Dien is not just a host, he is a friend, and I'm glad to have shared a little portion of his life and to have seen the world through his eyes. I hope to see you again Dien! Thank you!!

Vietnam is a big my heart !!!

I met Dien in Hanoi and he gave me really cool advices about what to do in Vietnam. He also putted me in contact with some local friends in Sa Pa which made me live one of the best experience I've ever head. If you are looking for some tips and someone to have fun with, he is your man! You will always be welcomed in Milan and I hope to see you again! Good luck with your business.

Wellcome to Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.

Dien is a great man living in a great city! His generosity and simplicity is unmatching! He picked me up from the station and took in also a friend of mine and we all shared the same bed. I love his instinct: Dien said - I know my friend is hungry and we started munching on the sweet potato chips! best mate!

Dien is a genuinely kind, warm-hearted person. I met him shortly after I arrived in Hanoi, and am very fortunate to know him. Even though I was living in Hanoi, he still took it upon himself to make sure I was integrated into life in the city and fully appreciating Vietnamese culture. He introduced me to some wonderful Vietnamese dishes, and is a wealth of interesting information about his home country. He's also one of the most upbeat people I know! Very happy to have a friend like Dien! :)

Dien is amazing! ! He accepted my very last minute request and hosted me at his house in Ha Noi for some days. He took really good care of me. He picked me up at the station, took me everywhere with his bike, introduced me to his friends and his favorites spots. Also made me try local food, which is very good by the way! He spent a lot of time with me and we talk about many interesting things and shared our ideas. He's very nice and has a very good approach to life and friends. I felt very comfortable staying with him and I also had a great time, everyday he had many things planned! ! He also helped me plan my trip around Vietnam since I had no idea where to start hehe. And he even got for me very cheap tickets! Thank you so much for all your help Dien! I had a great time in Ha Noi and it was because of you! ! I hope one day you start visiting all your friends in the world and make a stop in Uruguay! !

I met Dien during my last day in Hanoi and he made my last stay in Vietnam absolutely feel great! He shown me and other couchsurfers some interesting and cheap places where only local people know. And that was exact what I wanted to see! Dien was also helpful, kind and fun! Thanks Dien, hopefully see you in soon!

I met Dien shortly after my accident (painful shoulder dislocation, please beware of Mt. Falsipan! ;-), that ended my Journey through Vietnam way to early. I was flying home the next day, so unfortunately I had little time to spend in Hanoi and with Dien. But he made the best out the short little time we had. We met with two others couchsurfers and he showed us corners you wouldn't usally see as a tourist (little hidden coffeeshop with delicious egg coffe, local ice cream shop with inside motorbike parking lot :-)). We also enjoyed a good live musik performance accompanied by vietnamese beer. Thank you for a beautiful last day in Vietnam. Hope we see each other again, because I have to come back for sure. I wish you all the best! Julia
