Nice - good service


Decent place to stay given the location and price. The rooms are big and spacious and fairly clean. The breakfast is good and staff are lovely. Bit difficult to find at first but we just asked around and eventually managed to find it. The reception didnt look the most inviting but dont be put off by that. Good for a short stay in Ho Chi Minh - we only spent 1 night here and it did the job.


Really cool place. My room was spotless, A/C and hot water available always (definitely no bugs in my bed!). It is a minute from the bustling street and still far enough to have some peace, perfect location. Atmosphere is perfect and the staff is great, I sat and talked with them for hours on the street. The owner Jade is an honest, clever and open minded girl who helped me in anything i needed. Stayed here for almost a week in total, that's definitely my home in Saigon.


We stayed at PP Backpackers between 3rd-7th April 2014 and enjoyed our stay. The Hostel is really well situated, literally round the corner from the main backpacker/ tourist district, and just far enough away to be quiet enough for a good night's sleep. Rooms are clean and of a good size, and the free wifi has a solid connection throughout. We recommend asking for a room at the front with a balcony if you book here in advance.

The staff did not watch the roomkeys that were given to them. The hallway stank and in our beds were bugs. You weren"t able to shut the windows all the way, so it was pretty loud.


It was a nice place to stay. The location was really good. We also rented a motorbike from them cheaper than you get them in the streets. We would come back.


Perfect location and great price for this place. There is no atmosphere for mingling with other travelers unless you hangout in the actual dorm room but you'll meet plenty of travelers on the streets so don't worry about that. Staff are mixed. The one younger girl speaks good english and is very helpful. The others do not speak English and would prefer if you didn't wake them from their nap on the sofa to do things like help you call a guesthouse in another town for a reservation.
