Paid for a six bed dorm and ended up in a dorm with six beds PLUS a thin glass wall with another nine bed dorm room which was not only using our bathroom but also had to go through our room to even enter their dorm. Additionally, the bunk beds where horrible, because they were three story bunk beds and very unstable...


Rooms are super small. 4 bunk beds next to each other. No space for bags. Only one toilet per 18 people.


We had a really good stay at this hostel. However it could have done with a larger, more comfortable social area. The seating area is tiny stools or cushions on the floor, would have been nice to have some real chairs to sit on as we often ended up chilling in this area. Very good value for money and located right next to the park which was perfect. wasn't too loud at night as your not too close to the bars. Would stay here again


Clean beds, nice helpful staff, great location. - No good "lounge" kind of place to meet new people, just the reception. - very limited number of toilets. (2).


It was horrible. You Have one small toilette for 20 people with no hot water at all, Obviously it wasnt clean. The staff is not help full and even you didnt understand them, breakfast really bad, I advice you to go Another place.

If all you care about is a cheap bed, this is definitely the place to stay! However there are definitely around 21 beds in the room, not 12. Pros - cheap, relatively good location, basic breakfast. Cons - dirty bathroom (and only one on each floor), staff barely speaks English, no secure places really to store backpacks, and the "common area" isn't soundproof so the whole hostel echoes with chatter. Wouldn't stay again but it did the trick for a few nights!


Cheap for dorm bed. 12 person dorm beds

In stead of a 12 dorm into a small 18 persons dorm with only 1 toilet/shower.... No linen provided, only a blanket


You get what you pay for. The staff hardly speaks any English, breakfast is a baguette with jam and a banana and the bathrooms were falling apart. We also had some clothes washed during our stay. Which I would not recommend, they lost one bra and mix everybody's laundry. But considering the hostel is cheap I guess you have to expect a standard like this.


If you wanna stay for little money in Saigon, this is the place to stay :) Breakfast is a joke, bread and butter with jam. But better than nothing :) Staff only speaks little English but you'll get along. The bathrooms are perfectly fine just like the beds in the dorms


If your on a budget it's perfect! The family who run it are really friendly but don't know much english! It's hard to find at first but we got there. It's in the perfect location with only a 2 min walk to the shops and travel places!


The guesthouse owner should change the bed sheet every time come in. The first day I arrive my bed was dirty and I can feel the sand from the previous guest. There is no key provided for the room.
