Great location, great staff. Would stay again


What appears a little run down, this place gets better. The staff are really helpful. The dorm is small and basic, but suitable for a few nights. Can be social at breakfast time. Location is great, as the alley is quiet and quite cool (and so near the buses).


Friendly and helpful staff, clean and tidy, free water refills and breakfast included in price. Only thing that lets this place down is the size of the social area/lobby but over all a great place to stay in Ho Chi Minh A+++


Very nice staff and convenient to find many at ho chi minh.


Had a great time here, good location, smack bang in district 1, friendly staff and decent room :)


Not worthy of its rating on hostel world. Down a dodgy back alley, it's not bad but there is better for the price. Very basic with good wifi, and free breakfast. Doesn't feel very safe, with the fan about to fall off the ceiling, But there are lockers. I'd say it's not bad but definitely not great. No party vibes at all. The owners were nice.


Nice hostel in a great location, right near the main backpacker drag (although it's tucked away down a little side street and can be hard to find!) The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and helped us book our onward travel. Free (instant) tea and coffee. Wifi was ok. Dorm was pretty good.


Amazing helpful staff, will help you out with your every need. Not a party hostel, it's a homestay. But good breakfasts, and lovely people. If you are looking to meet people, maybe try a bigger hostel.


nice place, with really friendly staff. the staff book all your tours and everything and are helpful finding places to eat. for the price and including breakfast you cant go wrong.


Dirty small rooms. Dirty bathrooms. Horrible horrible beds. Oily "breakfast". No atmosphere. Really no reason to stay here unless you really can't find anything else




a simple place, but full of hospitality and friendliness, a definitely recommended place if not too much requests on facilities

Great place with extremely friendly and helpful staff.


Staff are very helpful and provide a nice breakfast. Location is great and along a side street meaning it's not noisy outside. Small common room but good to meet people. Four bed dorm room is basic but slept well in it.


Spent great days in this hostel. Very close interesting area and at same time so quiet during the night. Personnel are kind and professional and can give usefull information to travel around


Very friendly.


The staff was wonderfully nice and so accommodating! The atmosphere was also fantastic, I met a lot of people I enjoyed speaking to and exploring the city. Highly recommend.


The staff was really helpful and the guesthouse really well located (in the middle of an alley! Out of the noisy street). The only thing we don't like about our 4bed room was that u have to swim after u take a shower :) I hope they fix it soon

Don't let the ally way put you off. First impressions of the guesthouse were a bit mixed. However it is a lovely place to stay very friendly and helpful staff are willing to help you with anything. Right in the backpacker area. Enjoyed our stay here


Stayed at the 8 bed dorm, beds were extremely squeaky and moved whenever any of the four on either side of the room did. The bathrooms were located on the balcony, which was useful if you are a smoker, but the sliding doors were either slightly see-through or did not open/close easily. Also the internet failed on the fifth floor on one of our nights but credit where its due they fixed it when it was brought to their attention. Location is good, although the alley is narrow and easily missed.
