Good location, very close to the main night street. Right next to a market for some local action and also next to the Wings bar, the perfect place for a solo traveler to start the night before hitting the pubs.

Not much space to socialize, but otherwise a very nice place. Good facilities, nice clean beds, free breakfast. Staff is also helpful.

A great little hostel situated around the corner from the touristy bar area and around the corner from a Vietnamese market. Best of both worlds! The atmosphere was awesome in this hostel, one of the nights i think it was pretty much fully booked out, can't be that bad huh. I also recommend the bar next to the hostel, wings, the owner is awesome and the staff are a good laugh. Plus its a nice way to ease yourself into a night out in HCMC. Great value for money, with breakfast included!

I have no regrets about staying here, enjoyed my time here. Staff were the friendliest and were always happy to help with a smile. Nice and clean rooms very comfortable. Everything is cleaned on a regular basis by two very smiley cleaners. Good common area and very good breakfast for free. All for a very cheap price!!! I highly recommend you staying here. Very good location too 5 minute walk to the main backpacker street for a few beers. Good luck!!!

Not all lockers had locks on them and only one of two showers was working. Alright common areas. Great location close to the pub street and a good breakfast.

I saw the cleaning lady put back a blanket of someone else on a new bed without changing it. The first towel that they gave me was really dirty...

It's a lovely hostel! We had an issue with our room and the staff was super nice about it and helped us fixed it right away! The cleaning staff was a bit rude, we saw a girl getting woken up and kicked out bc it was check out time.. So I thought it was a bit rude but the staff in reception is absolutely lovely!!

Nice, standard hostel in central Saigon. The staff were friendly and helpful, the free breakfast was great and the little rooftop terrace was excellent. Good value for money.

An average hostel with really friendly staff.

Definitely an OK hostel. However I did stay there 4 nights and they never refilled the handwash during that time... Breakfast was nothing special but still OK.

Beds are comfy and room is generally clean, did have a problem with one of the shower doors bot opening at all for a day which wa a bit weird. Lounge area with tv on the rooftop terrace is a bonus. Staff are okay, but didnt explain when we arrived that we woul be charged for breakfast unless we told them we didn't want it on arrival. Would have got it $1 cheaper a night if they'd ok us we needed to decide at te beginning if we wanted breakfast included or not. Good location, near everything.

Poor security. Reception gave us security box keys but no lock found on box. Didn't give us a tour to familiarize us with the place either. Heard from a fellow backpacker that her credit card got stolen FROM the security box despite it being locked, not safe at all. Avoid this place if you want to keep your valuables, or take the risk and keep items on you. Pros: clean place, hearty breakfast.
