Nice hostel in the backpacker district of Saigon. Free beer every night for guests, and light breakfast in the morning. Definitely worth staying here for a couple nights!


Place was really nice and in a great location. Very clean and confortable rooms. 2 free beers a night was a great bonus and well as the free breakfast


Serious issues with staff friendliness and cleanliness of the bathrooms. Great location and friendly atmosphere.


A nice hostel with everything you could ever need. The tuk-tuk drivers were especially friendly and reliable. Every bed has a light, which is nice for reading at night but it was really too bright and other travelers were not polite about using it, all night long...


While the hostel is in a great location and staff were generally good. The place was not swept once and in the three days we stayed the bathroom was minimally cleaned once. The ac did not work in our room and despite multiple efforts to fix it, the problem was never rectified. Breakfast was a baguette with some fruit so minimal which was fine. But the cleanliness was the biggest downfall as well as one bathroom for 10 people.


Amazing atmosphere! DO go for the pub crawl and hang out at the common area - you'll meet many other like-minded and super friendly travellers. The facilities, location and cleanliness were also all superb.


Really central location, helpful staff and spacious dorms with modern ensuites. Overall really pleasant stay!


Great hostel. Good for meeting people and you get two free beers every night! People were very helpful especially as I had a package delivered here - i got it just in time but they offered to send it on for me if it didnt!


One of my favourite hostels I've stayed in on my travels- all the staff are really friendly and helpful, rooms are clean, showers amazing. Really sociable place to stay, you get 2 free beers every night and breakfast included! They also run 3 bar crawls a week which is a great night out and way to go to the local bars and meet people! Definitely recommend!


Great location, can book tours and buses here, great bar crawl, nice rooms!


Great social hostel for people looking to meet other travelers. Big spacious rooms, fantastic showers and of course the 2 free beers every night make this a fantastic hostel for the value!

Definitely a great hostel. The bar crawls they do are very fun. Great way to meet other travelers and plan trips together. My only gripe is that the lounge area isn't the best. It's kind of small and when people are checking in and out, it get very crowded. But it's not bad either. I met some people in it.


The staff was wonderful, helpful and friendly. The dorm room and bathroom was very modern and clean. Free breakfast and free beer were very nice perks! Will recommend this hostel to anyone I know going to Saigon. Thank you!


Great, friendly hostel with lots to offer travellers. Always happy to offer advice about trips and excursions. Very clean and tidy. Free beers between 7-8pm! Good selection of fruit and jams with bread for breakfast. All in all one of the best hostels I've stayed in!

Good value hostel with big lockers and an extension cord which takes all plug types for each bed which was a nice touch. The staff were very friendly and approachable. Common area is a bit small though and despite the 2 free beers every night the atmosphere isn't that great mostly because of the crowd the hostel attracts. If you're simply looking to get drunk you'll get on well with the people here. If not they can get really annoying. Though I imagine most hostels in that area are similar.


If you're looking for a place to party, socialise and meet lots of people then this is the place to be. The two free beers are the greatest attraction of this place but the breakfast is good as well and the staff are really friendly. Almost every alternate day is a pub crawl arranged by the hostel.Though not a party person at all myself I stayed for more than two weeks because the facilities are so great. Clean dorms, beds and bathrooms, hot showers. Wifi in every room. Can't ask for more at $8


Not much I can say about this place other than it was a place to rest my head. There was one shower/toilet to a room of 8-12 people on the 5th floor. The wifi was shoddy and I (and everyone else) used the 4th/2nd floor wifi. The lift worked, so don't worry about that. Anh was extremely helpful and even brought me to an amazing Banh Mi stand (get it with the egg). The free beers were a nice touch, but the rowdiness of the crowd it attracts negates it. Friendly, though.


Excellent place to meet other travellers and they really look after you.


Great hostel with a great vibe!! Located just one street away from the busy backpakers area, this hostel has everything that you need. Privates and dorms, with good beds, AC, clean bathrooms, good size lockers and a friendly staff to help you to book your trips. Happy hour everyday with a couple of free drinks included, makes your life easier to meet people. Great location for daily and night activities! Walking distance from many good sites in HCMC. Highly recommended!!


brilliant stay, great atmosphere, will definitely return
