The staff were very sweet and the location was good... that's about it. No toilet paper, not much hot water.. beds were nice and big but no sheets.

Loved my stay here. Bed was private and clean and the 'pod' style made it a bit soundproof. Two showers and toilets were ideal so there was never a queue. Regular cleaning was great and ensured everything was pristine. I extended my stay as location was ideal too. The only downside was its not sociable due to the pods but it suited me fine after a hectic few weeks. Also the full day temple and tunnel tour was disappointing, so just do the half day tunnel tour its better value too.

The sleeping pods were a really great concept for adding a bit of privacy to a dorm room. The showers were great!

I got a single private room for a very reasonable rate, cheaper than all other I looked at...and after I checked in and saw the room, it could've slept at least 4! It was a bunk bed with a queen sized bed on the bottom and on the top. The room was extremely clean and although it's right on the main tourist strip where all the bars and clubs are, I couldn't hear any outside noise. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone, and I have stayed in many many hostels before.

Really helpful staff. Great location. Pod bed is Ok but no wifi inside them. The room I was in smelled really terrible! I couldn't sleep properly because it was so overpowering :/ My pod was right next to the aircon and I was literally sleeping with socks, jumper, hoodie etc n still shivering! Not the hostel's fault but the room was also full of really loud guys who literally wee'd all over the toilet. More facilities would have helped.

The only thing we didn't like was the aircon was turned off from 9am-9pm so the rooms got pretty hot in the mornings. The other thing was the maid came in early to clean so if you were out late and sleep lightly you will be woken up! Other than that it was a great place to stay!

The hang out room upstairs could use a little more... such as a bar or coffee or something and couches to encourage more people to hang out there.

Very secure, clean, quiet and in a great location. Bathrooms were great, very clean and plenty of showers, there was a small balcony in each dorm and a lift which is always welcomed! The only down points- its not a very communal atmosphere, this suited me for the one night i was there, but i know others like a social atmosphere. And the major downer is, the nature of the cabins means that you dont feel the air con at all- most uncomfortable nights sleep i had in Vietnam purely due to the heat!!

Common room would make a big difference

Clean and great value for money. Cabin beds give more privacy than most hostels. Close to most of the sites in HCM.

One of the best hostels I have stayed at, though I found their request to keep my passport a little strange, but it could just be me. The room was clean and you enjoy a great deal of privacy with 'pod' beds. It was ensuite instead of "shared bathroom" as advertised; there were 2 showers and 2 bathrooms for a dorm of 10. The receptionist was pleasant and spoke decent English. Location wise, it is easy to get around and you have a myriad of bars, cafés and street food stalls to choose from.

The design of the pods is great--so much more private than typical bunk beds. The bed was not the most comfortable, though. Appreciate the commitment to environmental sustainability. Overall, a great value.

Perfect location in the heart of the backpacker district, very clean and affordable rooms and supremely helpful and friendly staff. The single ensuite room was exceptionally good value. The only gripe would be the lack of a proper common room to meet people from the hostel, but that isn't really necessary with all the street bars 30 seconds away. Lovely place.

Helpfull, patient staff. The dormcabins feel private, but that makes it a bit less social sometimes. More fan's or all day AC would be welcome as it gets quite hot in Saigon and thus in a 10 bed dorm.

Super convenient hostel smack bang in the middle of Ho Chi Minh's famous backpacker district. Bars, restaurants, convenience stores, tour operators, taxis are all at this hostel's doorstep - with a local club pumping the latest dance tracks literally at the front door the floor below. Highly recommended if you're looking for an affordable and clean place to sleep and central point to depart from for tours to Cu Chi tunnels and the Mekong river.

Stayed here in one of their Private Room at the end of April 2014. Excellently located on De Tham road, you're right in the middle of the backpacker district of Saigon with eateries, travel agencies and everything you could want within steps away. Main attractions such as Ben Thanh market is 15 minutes away, while the War Remnant Museum & Reunification Palace is about 30 minutes away. Their private room can sleep 4 people on a double-storied double bed complete with air-conditioning, ensuite t

The hostel was in a really good area, right in the heart of the backpacker district. Good choice of bars, restaurants and street food. Close to all the sites, remnants museum and palace only a 10 minute walk away and the market was just down the road. Really good security as they give swipe cards which are needed for the lift and entrance to the rooms. Loved the cabin beds and the fact the room was ensuite was definitely a plus.
