Really nice hostel, dorms are good as you have your own little but spacious pod to sleep in.

This hostel is very gooooood. location is good and value for money is good. but there have no hair dryer.
Amazing location, literally a minute away from the Giant Ibis bus stop and right by loads of great bars and restaurants. The pods weren't quite as sound proof as they make out but the bathroom was really nice, modern and clean! Would highly recommend :)
Great location, very clean and also quiet. Slept really well. I got the Giant Ibis bus from Phnom Penh to HCMC and the bus stop for that was at the end of the road which was great. The only downside is there is no communal area but I would highly recommend it.
Really nice hostel with helpful staff in a solid location right amongst everything, the English speaking guy at reception offers great advice and recommendations too.
Great location. Very clean and comfortable. I almost didn't book because of the reviews on the wifi not working but when we were there it worked perfectly! We were on floor 5, not sure if that makes a deference. Only complaint is that it's not conducive to meeting other travelers as there isn't a great hang out area. Would stay again for sure!
The place is alright. there are just a few things we didn't like. the beds are unbelievable hard, there is no space for drying towels or anything, sheets don't seem to be clean enough and staff is not that communicative... if you just want to stay for 1 or 2 nights the Hostel seems to be ok but don't expect too much!
Good location, Nice shower And Very clean!
Staff were always very helpful and nice. The rooms were clean. No common area so if you're just looking for a bed then it's perfect.
Amazing hostel. One of the cheapest online and it was great value for money. Pod beds with shelves and reading lights. Balconies with city views. Large lockers for storage. Wi-Fi is pretty reliable. Location is right by inter-city bus stops and food can be found at every corner. Would definitely return here
About 5 doors down from Sinh tourist office so perfect if arriving in hcmc by open tour bus. Plenty of bars and eateries nearby, within walking distance of the main sites. If in hcmc I highly recommend XO Tours for a back of bike night tour - excellent fun seeing 5 different districts and food includes.
The location is perfect, near all the tourist spots in the city and situated in a vivacious district. The staffs are very friendly, helpful and entertaining. Beds and bathrooms are clean and organized. Definitely a perfect place for everybody. I will surely stay in this hostel whenever Ill go back in Ho Chi Minh City, the money that I paid for is worth it.

As below - thought the girls on reception, especially the one with the glasses, were brilliant at their jobs, made everyone feel welcome and always made time. One minor con - no window in the ladies dorm toilet or shower room means that when some one makes a poop, it wafts out to the whole bed room area, which was not great and made me want shower again!

Room was okay, air-con position is a little stupid, should have put it down the isle not in front of the bunks. Our roomates hated the air-con and decided to turn it off when everyone was asleep, because it went directly to her bunk. We slept sweating like a pig because it was too hot in the room. Internet Wifi did not work. They said it was slow. Well, I guess they were lying. The beds were damp, kind of annoying. During our stay, why are you guys keeping our passport anyway?
Pigeon hole bunk beds make for nice private sleeping. Beds however were hard and uncomfortable. WiFi had issues and wasn't resolved for over a week. Showers and bathroom was very nice and modern and regularly cleaned. Our laundry was also given to our old bed number after moving rooms which they were unhelpful about.
Good hostel for a 2 night stay. Central enough and bus dropped off opposite which was nice!
Good location for tours etc, and some good local restaurants nearby. I like the 'pod style' beds in the dorm, however, I do not think electronic keys for the doors are a good idea. For a private room sure, but for a dorm room where people are coming and going all day and night the alarm sound on the door as it is opened and closed is incredibly irritating. I got NO sleep in the dorm, and changed to a private room after the third sleepless night.
WiFi sucks, but other than that awesome place. Only place I will stay in Saigon. This place attracts great personalities.
Stayed only 2 nights, but the place is really nice. Bathrooms are perfect as well as the location and the nice staff. Make sure to get a bottom bed as the upper beds are not good to reach (especially with s.th. in your hands). Curtains in front of the bed would be nice, too. Less because of the privacy (you get that quite well with the design), but for those who didn't like the fan blowing in their face. Otherwise no complaints. It was a short, but pleasant stay.
The hostel is located in the backpacker area and perfect to start your trip because all the travel agencies are located around the hostel.it is also easy to get into the city as it is only a 20 minute walk. the beds were not good but the little beds were very nice to have a little bit privacy!
