For the money we paid, it was a brilliant stay! It's unfortunate that the hostel had chosen to.do a lot of building work that weekend, including in our room, which made the place a bit of a mess. However, the staff were all apologetic and helpful. The hostel is slightly hidden, but once found it's in an ideal location for everything!

Great experience at Saigon! Staff was helpful, tours were booked easily. Rooms are spacious and clean. Free breakfast in the mornings. Make sure to book a free walking tour that will pick you up from the hostel as well! Good hostel if you're looking for a place that's not too noisy and out of the partying area.

Best hostel. They have bigger than normal beds (that are comfy), very nice staff that book everything for you, good sir con and have the comfiest couch with a million preloaded movies on it. Also he breakfast is the BEST AND INCLUDED. best hostel ever. Stay here or be sorry

Lovely place, staff were 50/50. Some were willing to help and sort any issues while some were quite rude. Nice area for chilling and watching films. Wifi a bit poor on the top floor, where I stayed. And our door locked from the inside whenever we closed it, which caused a few issues with people being locked inside. Cleanliness was good. Would say it's a good place to stay but there are other good places in Saigon for a similar price.

Super friendly staff. Close enough to the main backpacker street so easy to get back. It was nice coming into a clean room. Not really a lot of social space, but the pool table was a nice touch. Crappy wifi if you're on the top floor.

The 4 bed room dorm was way too small for four people, with almost no space to breath! We had two huge cockroaches in this tiny space... The communal area is kinda poor, one old sofa and fans that are not on unless you ask to turn them on. Plus, too much to climb :) (only one room in each floor)

The 4 bed dorm is very clean and the AC is working well. Breakfast is nothing special but OK. It's hard to meet people here, because there is only one couch and no Bar or anything. The staff is OK, but the guy who is working there is very unorganised. Don't forget to ask for your passport when you leave because he will forget. Also when you book tours or extend your visit remind him again.

2 computers in the lounge lost internet connection for few days. Maybe just occasionally. I was staying here last year and it was soooo much better.. Seems the owner does not really care about the hostel as I saw most of the facilities are getting obsolete and not taken a good care. Please keep it clean, keep good maintenance of the facilities and keep the quality like before, as I will definitely come back there again due to your location. Some of the staff tried to rip me off for the airp

You can See that a lot of Heart and thoughts were put into that hostel, beds Are comfortable, the rooms Look nice and the bathroom Used to be really good. But it seems like for years Nobody was cleaning and taking Care of it, a lot of things were broken in our dorm, the cleaning staff only change sheets and splash some water on the bathroom Floor

We'd previously stayed at this hostel for three nights before heading to Mekong Delta. We decided to come and stay another night before heading to mid vietnam. Pleasant stay, good room, hot shower and helpful staff.

We stayed in a private room which was a good size, with A/C and hot shower. The location was fab in the centre of district one - just be warned there are two Saigon Backpackers (only 2 minutes away from eachother). Organised our tours and we came back to stay one more night. Staff really helpful too

Average hostel. Nothing bad to say about it. Dorms are spacious with comfy beds and lockers. Everything's clean. Choice for breakfast which is included. In the backpacker area. Has a pool table and sofas for a sociable area but doesn't feel sociable. Staff were really nice especially they guy with the black rimmed glasses. Not a bad place but would have preferred somewhere with more atmosphere.
