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!

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.


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


The only problem is many mosquitoes.


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.
