Decent city hostel in good location. Not the cleanest nor the friendliest place but good for meeting people and socialising.


This hostel was an awesome party hostel and a great value. You get 2 free beers between 7-8 pm then buy one get one free drinks the next hour.et tons of people and had a great atmosphere. Laundry service was not good they said it would take 24 hours and it ended up being 40 Hours and they kept forgetting to put it in the dryer.


Loved this place! Defs need to stay! Stayed for way to long here because it was so much fun. Two free beers a night gets the people going. Staff were all super friendly. Super nice hostel, bathrooms were great as well! Great location as well


Fabulous staff, so friendly Amazing showers - probably one of the best of my whole trip! Comfy bed Large storage lockers

Very fancy bathroom, beds all had 3 plugs each as well as a USB socket which is amazing. No hot water however which was annoying. Free beer was a nice touch and staff were very friendly


Great hostel at the heart of the backpackers area. Very close to the bus pickup and dropoff. Staff speaks good english. Beds were prepared every morning.


Awesome hostel... So fun, cheap drinks, really great place will totally stay here again!!


Massive bonus is that the bus drops you right outside the hostel! Staff are all really friendly and there's always a great atmosphere. Everyone gets two free beers between 7-8pm every night so it's a great way to meet people, although the common areas are a little small. Free pub crawl a few times a week is a good laugh! Located in district 1 it's within walking distance of markets, bars and museums so saves on taxis. Will definitely stay again if I return to Saigon.


This was the longest stop of my SE Asia loop and I couldn't have been happier with my stay at The Hideout. The staff are wonderful. Very helpful and informative. Great location and the free beers in the evening is a great way to make some fantastic friends at the hostel. Thank you so much. I am planning to come back to Vietnam for a longer time and The Hideout will be my home base while in HCMC.


Everything is good and nice to meet travellers but some of the staff members can be less than helpful and rude! All in all its ok though


The location is really excellent (right in the back-packers quarter of Saigon), the cons are surely the beds which are too small (I felt very uncomfortable and left after 1 night, if you're taller than 1.85 you won't sleep well), there are no individual lights in the rooms, and one only restroom is maybe not enough for a 10 ppl dorm.


A reasonsble hostel. Communal area was VERY small. Free beer between 7pm - 8pm. Rooms were good; clean and modern. Plugs for top bunk are located on the bottom bunk which is annoying. Smell from toilet in the lobby is horrendous. That aside I had a good stay. Not the worst or the best. Id stay again. Burger king nextdoor is a bonus, along with a 'ABC Bakers' a few doors down which is really cheap. Dont book taxi to airport with hostel...more expensive than flagging one on the street.


Can't really fault this hostel. Had everything you want. Free/cheap beers, good wifi, big under bed lockers, nice bathrooms, lift.. Good place to meet people as well. Location is great, close to everything. Definitely stay!


One of my favourite hostels. Excellent location for backpackers, good security, great staff. Small social area but that didn't stop us from having a great night every night!


Not hot shower for 2 days. Staffs are nice and they arrange many tours and book open bus tickets for you. (mainly with TNK travel) 2 free beers/ night, great place to meet new friends. The toilet on the 1st floor stinks. Overall good value for the price and if you don't care much about the cleanliness and don't mind not having hot shower, you will have a great time there.


Fantastic hostel in a great location. The social atmosphere here is the highlight, with 2 free beers a night downstairs it's easy to meet other people before going out on the town to experience the amazing Saigon nightlife. Booking tours and busses from reception is a breeze. The staff are friendly and helpful, one even went out of her way after her shift had ended to help me with an outside matter. There is also a chill room with 100's of movies when you've had enough and just need to relax.


Good hostel with clean beds and great location. Helpful staff.


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.
