Lovely place. Staff were friendly and helpful, they gve is a map and suggested some places to go. Close to the central area for clothes and shopping, only a 10 minute walk to the river through the beautiful old streets. Only about 1-3 minutes by taxi from the bus station so don't get ripped off by the taxi driver like we did! Would stay again, plus Cafe 43 over the road was great - good food and we even did a cooking course with them :D lovely!
Really nice place, pool was small but perfect for the two of us as we were the only ones using it! Only a few metres (if that) from the beach (but the beach is nicer further up the road). Dorm was comfortable if a little squeezey but nice big lockable lockers - could fit a small suitcase & a rucksack in there comfortably. Good way to meet other travellers and plenty of great foods places just outside. Would recommend Friendly (out & left) and Indigo (out & right). Quite quiet but what we wanted!
Excellent hostel - staff were super friendly and helpful, especially jonny who sorted out the Cu Chi tunnels for us and an open bus ticket up the country - he even gave us some food to take on the bus when he realised we hadn't had dinner! Nice dorms and comfy beds, good complimentary breakfast and very clean. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone who finds themselves in Saigon!
We were a little disappointed: we were put in a double room right at the back of the property by the main road which was noisy with tuk tuks & motorbikes, next to the toilets (straw huts are not soundproof so you could hear everyone's bathroom ablutions...!) we had to carry our luggage across a miniature beach (no path) & up some rickety wooden stairs. Bed was comfy, local bars friendly with good food but very quiet and $5-10 tuk tuks each way to get to town. Staff ok but didn't know a lot...
We'd arranged a pick up from the airport which had been confirmed but when our flight was delayed and we had to wait around for a while to get our visas sorted out, we were worried that there would be no one to meet us. Luckily and thankfully they were there waiting for us with my name on a sign. Large, comfy beds; excellent food; big metal, wired lockers with padlocks provided; organised onward travel for us and tours to the top sights around the city. Not a lot of power outlets in the dorms :(
I paid for a standard double (only thing available at the time) & had to pay for 2 people as it was a double room so for 3 nights it cost more than a week's stay in a different place. The walls were mouldy & badly covered with wallpaper to try to hide it - the room itself was tiny & three sides of the double bed touched the walls. There was a glass bathroom shoved in there so it was essentially a bathroom with a bed squeezed in. The carpet was disgusting & they charged for everything! Horrendous
