Arrived late in the evening and the hostel seemed a bit unorganised:there was somebody in the assigned bed,no locker left in the room,no key was given (they didn't make a problem next day though when i said i had none). Tours and bus tickets are way more expensive then elsewhere.

All in all my stay was very pleasant. The beds were comfortable compared with other hostels at this price. In addition the hostel staff were very helpful, communicative and nice.

Very good hostel, great atmosphere and awesome stuff! It was much fun to stay there on New Years Eve. They also have a roof terasse where you can sit and chat, watch tv or play guitar. It was best hostel in Saigon I have been (and I tried quite a few), Keep it up guys!

they serve great breakfast! they clean the halls everyday. friendly staff and very convenient location. it was noisy though during early evening because of the honking of horns of the motorists and especially on Christmas eve but the next night was less noisy.

Central location in backpackers area. Helped book us trips to Cu Chi tunnels and Mekong Delta (overnight), both for competitive prices. Free breakfast of bread and eggs as standard.

Seems like a good place judging by the other hostels in the area. Don't expect a lot though.

Make sure you know what your paying for as the staff can't add up and try to rip you off when you leave! Also don't leave your shoes at the door they mysteriously go missing and hold on to your bags in the area!

After turning up to this hostel I realised it wasn't the one I had seen online and had read some good reviews. Turned out there are two of the same name hostels run by the same people. 2 min walk apart from one another. This one is ok although I moved too the other one after one night, the other one has much nicer,larger and cleaner rooms . Both do free breakfast which is basic but good as is free

Staff was friendly, but a bit chaotic. Mixed up guest namens all the time. Don't do your laundry in this hostel, it is very expansive and one day later, when I was already in Cambodia, I found out that everything had shrunk so badly. Now everything is two sizes smaller.. very very poor service. Reaction from reception was: you should try it on before you take it. Wtf??? It has already shrunken by then so what is the point??

Great hostel with friendly staff in an excellent location. Will most certainly stay here again when visiting Ho Chi Minh City.

We only stayed there for one night. The staff was nice. The rooms were Ok, but we found bedbugs. One of the showers was broken. Location: Central, but not a safe location at night if you are travelling alone.

Great place! Rooms are nice and comfy with 4 bunk beds each. There is a power outlet and reading light for each bed. Lockers for the valuables. Everything is kept neat and clean by staff. This place has lots of hangout areas including the main lobby, balcony, and a rooftop spot as well as a computer room. also a kitchen which I got a lot of mileage out of. When leaving the wonderful and beautiful host went with me to the street to catch a taxi to the airport. Highly recommended!

Clean hostel. Staff was nice, especially Mai. Nice area on the roof to hang out. Good free breakfast. Close enough to the main backpacker street but far enough away that you don't get all of that noise.

After staying at quite a few lively hostels this was a bit of a disappointment. The staff, although friendly weren't particularly helpful, or interested in our questions (we even asked about a walking tour and was told it was on a different day so we missed it). Although the hostel is large there's no proper social area so it's hard to meet people. It was a bit of a walk to the main streets, and down a dark alley which was a little scary. If you want quiet and to be left alone then stay here.

Quite good hostel. Good location and good free breakfast. The cook is lovely and will give you laughing cow cheese if yu ask ;) Good maps provided. Bad wifi and lockers are not provided for everyone, and you cannot check in until 2.30pm which is a nightmare if you have come in very early morning on a night bus!

There are 2 Saigon Backpackers which makes it highly confusing. The one I was in was fine. Good decor, lots of steps, tightly packed bedrooms but they were just about manageable. Location is good, really near to bar street etc. Completely unclear how to get through the gate at night. I thought the staff were fairly unhelpful to be honest. Basic but filling breakfast. You get what you pay for I suppose. I came back to Saigon but chose to stay somewhere else.

The hostel is in a decent area, about 10 mins walk to main backpacker street and bus stops. You can book the CuChi Tunnels tours through them as well as buses from Ho Chi Minh to other places around Vietnam and Cambodia. They do a good free breakfast in the morning also :)
