Hey,a foreign student lives near the city centre and rent a single room(comfortable),its cost 250 USD/month.That the common price Hanoi people want,they charge the more expensive price from foreigner.Normal Vietnam people rent house only spend 1/2 or 2/3 price of foreigner's.

I also live in Hanoi $225 rent $25 food $2 round trip taxi sounds right for city center where I live also.I could rent a one bedroom apartment two miles from City center for $150 month as I did for 4 years but I wanted to cut back on taxi usage.Rent an apartment on the 8 the floor minimum to cut down on noise and fumes.Mines on the 19th floor better yet.

Hello I'm a retired U S citizen,my income per month is 29,000,000 VNM.Is that enough to live comfortably for one person? Thanks

This is more than actuality. Cost of living for single about 5-6 milion VND (for enough and comfortable life). With 20 milion salary can be seen as rich people :)

@Yoss: surely will be fine, depends on your living lifestyle. Thing is everything is cheap so it will be hard for you to resist going out, ended up being broke at the end of every month haha.
