The staff were very helpful, they show they care about you a lot by giving advice about your bags and staying safe, they explained the money to you (if your new to vietnam and all those 0's on the money confuses you!) they know the city very well and give you all the help you need

Generally a nice little budget place to crash at. If comfort is a HIGH priority then this might not be your number 1 choice. But if you are flexible and easy going, this hostel offers a good place for your budget. Getting down to it Pro: nice staff, cheap tours, location is pretty descent, price is great. Con: breakfast is simple, not hot water (not cold, and it's hot in HCMC so it's ok), no towels, not spotless. I would still recommend it unless you are super particular about ur accommadation.

A simple hostel, but as the name implies it is meant for those on a budget. Nothing out of the ordinary, kept reasonably clean, staff is helpful enough, and they offer trips at competitive prices. Location was great, its right by the main backpacker bar area, but not directly on the street so that it does not get too noisy.


No common room, WiFi not working, shouldnt advertise breakfast as it is merely a piece of bread with some jam alike.when raising an issue the staff excuse was, "I finished my shift 2 hours ago" but apparently no one has turned up to take over. They seem to constantly make up excuses instead of tackling problems seriously. Lizard and others bugs will also be part of the experience. Not worth the $5


Great for budget travelers. Wifi was on and off. Not really a hot shower but saigon is super hot so not much of an issue. Nice enough staff.
