Good localtion for visiting the hot spots of HCMC. Hostel was surprisingly quiet (being in a very noisy neigbourhood). Clean towels, ok beds. Nothing special but o.k. The rooftopterrace is nice.

The location was perfect but we were on the first floor so it was extremely noisy, could hear the calls and conversations from the reception the whole time and people walking in and out throughout the whole night until the morning. The room was clean but the towels smelt disgusting!

Nice hostel. Loved that you have privacy in your bed since they are seperated by walls! This means you dont disturb everyone else when you get home late! Booked nice 2day home stay tour to mekong and 1 day tour to cu chi tunnels. Everything was planed well - and guide was nice!

Great location and clean facilities - staff was super helpful and friendly as well. The only thing to improve on would be a stronger aircondition and also work on the smell in the rooms (it was very stuffy). Also the fact that the bathroom is in the dorm means it's slightly noisier at night.

Only stayed here as a stop over before flying to Hanoi early the next day, however we liked the pod bed setup with your own power point, lamp and locker.

Literally the hardest bed I've ever slept on. It felt like I was sleeping in wooden boards. The hostel want very social when we were there, but it's located in a great area so you can meet people out and about at the bars. Good A/C, large bathroom with hot water in our private room.

Though my stay did not go to plan, Eco hostel were more than accomodating. The staff gave me a couch to sleep on for a few hours, let me use the facilities, and helped me pLan my onwards journey. For the small amount of time that I was there it seemed clean, the bunks were cool little individual sections, the staff tried their best to be accomodating. Great location in Saigon!

Great location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. One of the cheapest cities I've ever been to, with great food. Hostel is located in the main touristy district, so if you're into clubbing/barring, it's around the corner - I was not so much, but still met wonderful people and ate at all the hole-in-the-wall amazing food places.

Very helpful staff. It's great to have the possibility to shower after check out. Pads in the dorms are great.

Booked 2 extra nights here, the hostel is in a great location right next to lots of eateries and bars as well as in walking distance from the markets. The dorm rooms are nice and clean and you get your own little private pod which is good but hard to socialise with other people. Clean bathroom, hot showers, good wifi and lovely views of the city from the balcony. Staff are friendly and helped us book onward travel. Enjoyed my stay and would recommend :-)

Even through they forgot to arrange the pick-up service, I waited for a while at the airport and hired a taxi by myself. But the staff is helpful and the room is clean and safe. Might book again for next time.

Dear Guest, Thank you for writing this review. We all appreciate it. We are sorry for the missed pick-up taxi. We recieved your reservation and sent emails to confirm this service. And we didn't get your reply for some reasons. So that why we coudn't arrange a pick-up taxi for you. We were so happy that you arrived Eco Hostel safe. This is a good experience for us to improve airport pick-up service. Enjoy the rest of your trips and come back soon! Love you. The Eco's Team

Although a mix up with or room at first they fixed it after the first night. Rooms by the rooftop bar were noisy but the double queen bunk beds In the private was great! Rooftop bar was more of just a rooftop where you could drink if you brought up drinks.

Right in the city where all the action is! it's pretty easy to meet people in the lobby, they have good tours offered, and the beds are tucked away to be very private.

I booked 2 nights and paid the deposit. I said I should arrive at around 10pm , however my flight was delayed and I turned up at just after midnight. I was told that because I was late my bed had been resold and they were full. They were apologetic but didn't really cut it. They should make it clear when you book that after just 2 hours after your expected arrival time they cancel your booking.. They offered an alternative but it wasn't as nice so I had to find a new hostel. So be warned!

Dear Alex Taylor, I'm so sorry to hear about that. We always confirm with all guest by email when we receive bookings. We require guest confirm their arrival time should they have a late check-in. And after 02 hours from arrival time - which is confirmed, we have to cancel the booking. In the terms it clearly says for a no show you'll pay one night. But in this situation, we didn't charge one night fee. We hope you give us another chance to welcome you in the future. Best regards,

I would stay here again. The location is good and it has a rooftop patio which provides the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of HCMC.

I really love the privacy of the pod dorm beds, the night roof and the movie nights were great places to meet new people, but I didn't know you had to pay an extra $2 a night to enjoy 'free' breakfast and beer.
