Very clean, good location in backpacker area, lots of space. I think the pods are great! They were huge and had really nice cabinets to keep your things. Lots of floor space. TV room is nice. So-so for meeting other people. Staff isn't very helpful or knowledgable about things to do outside of the obvious tours.
This is a nice hostel and they do pods which I prefer. The only issue was one of the beds had bed bugs but once the staff was told they change the mattress and cleaned it out speedily.
This hostel served its purpose well. Pod beds were quite comfortable, two toilets and showers in the room. Dont have much to say about it, nothing exceptional, nothing bad, except the wifi was very unreliable. Didnt work in the rooms at all as has been mentioned and half the time I could only get online through the hostels computers even though I brought my tablet downstairs.
The hostel was really cheap and ecobackpacker hostel located in the strategic place in ho chi minh city, all staff can speak english very well and they are kind also.. if u find the cheapest one.. i recommended this place to stay.. But i think eco guesthouse must fix wifi in the 3rd floor special wifi for dormitory room.. because sometimes wifi is work sometimes not.. but the wifi in the main room was really strong.. CHEERS FROM HO CHI MINH
Truly friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable staff, in combination with the cubicle-like bunk beds which maximise privacy, make this an excellent stay in Saigon. Don't worry about not being able to meet other travellers (previous comments): you'll have plenty of opportunities for that all around the area.

Really good place to stay in Ho Chi Minh. Right downtown in the backpacker area, and super clean and nice dorms.
Not much room to socialise and wifi in the rooms is poor. Great location right in central location in backpacker area. Very clean and bathrooms were good. Staff very helpful organising trips and transfers etc
Best hostel in Saigon. The "pod" beds are amazing, they are very private and ensure your things are safe during the night! Staff were very helpful too. I'll definitely stay here again.
Room was nice and everything super clean with fresh towels. Shame there's no longer a bar as the lounge area isn't inviting. It's not a place for meeting people I found. Wifi was shocking, faster to use 3G on a local sim
I found that the dorms were poorly maintained and the staff wasnt helpful.Further the tours they suggested were overpriced and they were not able to provide any good suggestions for places to visit in Saigon/ around. The dorms themselves could also do with more regular cleaning.
This was one of my favorite hostels so far on our trip. The staff were super friendly, the beds were set up in way where each person had their own cubby, the place was fairly clean, and they had a good common room. I would definitely stay here again!
Really bad wifi in room if at all at times. The staff were really nice however so hot in room due to limited use of air con made it difficult to get proper sleep.
Great hostel - love the idea of the pods - privacy but still social if you want :) Don't expect internet though - most of the people I spoke to struggled to get internet
The room and sleeping quarters were good and private. Bathroom was good and a nice balcony with a good view. Would stay here again.
Super clean and comfortable, best bathrooms and lovely staff. Atmosphere not great, common area small, it was difficult to meet people, but I was only there for a short time. Cheers
Great place to stay private in the pods and sociable out of the pods :) had no trouble with wifi. No trouble meeting people. The people in my dorm were great. Would stay again!
Great hostel. Central to backpacker area. Two toilets and two showers in each dorm! Rare! Only downside is cell like beds, not a open or social atmosphere. Hard beds but those are everywhere in Asia. I'd recommend.
Just a bed in a pod. Nothing going on in the hostel, social area is non existent. Good location and easy to book onward travel through the reception. So many power cuts though
Great hostel, rooms were well designed with little cubicles for each person. Staff were very helpful with booking tours. It was a bit of a walk to see the main attractions but very close for restaurants and bars.
