Located in a narrow alleyway off Bui Vien close to all the backpacker bars and restaurants. Book a four bed dorm but moved to a two bed dorm with our own bathroom. Each room has a set of lockers which was handy. Breakfast was basic but it was a good start to the day.


It was annoying that I was not able to have a key to my room - this made me feel much less secure.

Awful. Our flight was delayed, called the hostel telling them we wouldnt arrive until next day, "ok, no problem". When we arrived they were fully booked. They claimed you have to check in at 14 (even though we stated 20 pm when making the reservation) refused to give us our deposite back. Do not recommend.


There were only 2 of us in a 4 bed dorm and it was perfect. I can imagine if 4 people were in it would be a squeeze. clean and tidy, cheap and perfect location. would stay here again.


We loved the hostel, great location and the breakfast that is included is really great!!! Small room but it has a tv and ac and we were out all the time anyway. 1minute walk to a lovely park.


Small rooms. Some of them even without windows. Beds are not the best quality. We went to an other place after one night.

Everything was way above my expectations from the friendliness of the staffs, to the services provided. Highly recommended!


I didn't really like this place, the bed was very hard , my room had no window and the bathroom was very dirty. The location is very good though
