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.


Staff friendly and helpful. Fairly basic but has what you need. Good if you want to save money!


Friendly staff on arrival. Breakfast was bread, butter and jam. No hot water


this hostel very good, clean and good location

Didn't have breakfast once because it was bread or bananas. Hotel staff were helpful most of the time. Rooms had lockers but hostel doors open all the time. Thin mattresses and bad pillows doubt the sheets were ever cleaned. Excellent location and worth the bargain price
