Great hostel to stay in if you're looking for other travellers, mainly young though. Dorm rooms are clean with ensuite bathrooms, big lockers for your backpack and a small locker on the wall for your valuables. I booked a 8 female dorm and got 10 mixed but didn't complain since it was only for one night. Breakfast is included and basic but ok. There's a pub crawl every night which goes to the hostels downtown location and some other places for a good party!

Good clean hostel in good location. Only thing I would say is pub crawl is the original seems to have a tamer and older crowd whereas the new one is a lot younger and wilder! Also, a friend if mine was woken up by romping in the bunk below!!

The staff at "original" are very friendly. The rooftop bar is great and breakfast was nice. Easy to meet people here, plenty of movies to watch. Stay at "Original"... DO NOT stay at their sister property "downtown"... You will hate it, the staff are rude, the lobby is too busy, loud and there's always a queue of 20 people by reception. At "original," there's never any queue and the staff are very helpful. Stay at "original"... It is a must.

Pretty good hostel - a bit of a party place, but it was reasonbly clean, the staff was super nice. Only real drawback was that the wifi worked really bad and that it was a bit noisy at night.

Nice atmosphere and liked the free guided tour on my first day there.

Had the most comfy bed in whole Vietnam here! The dorms are nice and safe equipped with big lockers, reading light and power outlet coming with every bed. Wifi didn't worked in (my) dorm and computers were super slow. All tours and tickets you could purchase through the hostle seemed really expensive to me, so maybe find another way to book your tours.

So glad we chose this hostel and would definitely recommend staying here. It's quieter than it's downtown sister hostel but still a great place to start if you want to party. The room was spacious and the bed probably the most comfortable I've slept in in SEA! Hot water was always available and much appreciated with the cold weather. Breakfast was good and the staff were always really friendly really helpful and got everyone involved in socialising in the evenings. Fantastic hostel!!
