Shaky matter

Chapa Lounge in Hanoi at the train station not found. Staff at the station could not help at all and no one could do anything with the tickets. At the end we were allowed to board the train and got a compartment. The ride was very shaky and the beds very narrow.

The train itself is fine, we had booked a cabin for 3 pers and as there appeared to be a 4th person in it, the staff offered us a family cabin on our own with no strangers which was very nice. But we missed information in the e-mails of the whole procedure of getting in the train- like the one that you have to go a ticket pick up counter/under what name, how early you should be there and so on

It was a lot of fun! The space is really small so take limited luggage. The station waiting area is not great but serves its purpose. The train is really noisy so we didn't get much sleep but we didn't really mind. The bathroom gets pretty messy!!
