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.


The staff are very friendly. The bed was clean enough. If you're on a budget, this is a good place to stay.


Missing common area to hang out with other travellers, otherwise good


Never had such a big dorm, they have three storage beds! We were in a room with 18 persons, but it was fine. They have lockers for everyone and also quite some space for your bags.


The cheapest dorms come without AC and it's unbearably warm, so take the $5 one! The dorms are really huge and bulky, but for the price and the location, it's really okay!


It looks nothing like the pictures. It is really crappy compared to other places I stayed at in Vietnam where I paid comparable prices. Would never come again and was about to just leave right away. So many beds in one room. We booked 6 bed dorm but that doesn't even exist really. Luckily we had the whole room to ourselves. Beds are stacked next to each other. Toilets are dirty and nasty. Staff is not so friendly but ok. This place needs to close.


Don't expect a lot for that money. Cheap-Dorm-Backpacker-Hostel. Not that save, but because of that...save. Should be always a place to stay.


Dont stay here if you can afford a little bit more. Staff doesnt speak proper English, there is no commom space, internet doesnt work and the shower smells bad.


This place is good to stay for the price, the hostel staff were very helpful and everything was clean


Its amazing what a few bad reviews can do to a place. I was there for three nights with just one or two other people in a room capable of fitting eighteen. Admittedly, had there been eighteen it would have been brutal and the pictures on show defy reality. But fortunately for the truely budget backpacker many of you choose elsewhere. There is one shower toilet cleaned daily between all and the beds butt up as close as close but there is a balcony! Risk if you dare!


BH decent for the money. fans work well. Staff not that friendly but not bad. (Girl always seemed suspicious.) Amenities missing, like reading lights and key card access. Oh well. Great location! Tour CuChi great- best deal $5.50 hostel. Add Cao Dai for 70k dong; long drive but not many people get to see things like a Caodist ceremony underway! entrance not included, beware. Girl downstairs at café with dogs gets grumpy if you take pics. Sturdy beds, but Sheets may or may not have been changed.


There is no common room, but a small cafe place downstairs. The wifi worked great on the 3rd floor (fan dorm). The breakfast is simple but sufficient - a small baguette and banana :) The bathroom is small but clean! The only problems were small lockers, also you have to bring your own lock (small one)..The guy that works at a reception is awesome, really helpful! We could store our stuff there while we went on a 2 day trip to Mekong delta :)


This place is like nothing I've seen. There's 18 beds piled into one dorm, three storeys high. It's like submarine style sleeping. But it works! Each bed has a fan and there's (thin) curtain between beds so you have some privacy. Admittedly when I was there there were only six people max, so eighteen would be a different kettle of fish. But there was something very cosy about it. And it's worth the money, even if breakfast is only a banana, bread, marg and coffee.
