We booked a private, so our room was across the street. It is very new, clean, safe and in the heart of the backpacker's district. If you're planning on walking around HCMC, it is in a decent location, but not the best. If your in the city to hang out with other backpackers - a great location. The lounge area is small, so a little hard to meet people actually in the hostel, easy outside though. The hostel's proprietor in the main building is very interesting and opinionated, always willing
This is a very basic hotel, but great value. $14 got us transportation bookings, a map, tourist advice, $2 worth of drinks and a breakfast worth about $5. You can't complain about the staff or the value at all. It's a little bit of a walk from central Hue, but most of the hostels/cheap hotels are and it is in a good backpacker zone. Staff were really friendly and the place was clean a part from the dirty wet towels left on the floor with the appropriate silverfish.
This hotel had great facilities, was very clean and overall had really good value. The location is optimal as we were 7 minutes from the riverfront, but out of the flood zone. As we went in the rainy season, many of the other hotels flooded further down the street. The tailor they recommended was also great. Don't go the the restaurant next door, even if the lady seems really energetic, no questions.
This is up there for the nicest hostels I've been in, especially when compared with the price. The location is great, right on the lake at the south end of the old quarter and the facilities are top-end. The staff there is almost too friendly and helpful (if that's possible), especially as we had issues getting VND and they really helped us out. The atmosphere of the hostel is more like a hotel and it is very calm and quiet off the main street. Breakfast had many options and all were good.
This Hostel was in a very good location for Hong Kong at a good price. The place was very clean and a great value for your $ in HK. Great access to the Subway and it is close walking distance to a whole lot of things in CB. If you get a private room, you are in the building across the street, which limits the atmosphere as meeting people is hard and the lounge is on the other side. They also do not have enough towels at the hostel, so make sure to either bring one or show up after laundry.
This hostel is in a great location and it is very secure when all the gates are locked. This is a hostel that just provides rooms, so don't expect to meet anyone else here. Also, if you get the 5 bedroom suite, you are in the hot attic jumping over and under some beams. Great place to stay if you're looking for location and want a good room for a couple people.
The hostel had great facilities for laundry, internet, showers and my room looked like it came straight out of an IKEA catalogue. The bar downstairs was nice an quaint, cheap by most standards (EUR 1.5 pints) and a good place to meet up with people. Location is on a main street, but it is nice and tucked away so noise is not an issue. Services are near, but not close to the train station and a little walk to the old town.
The facilities for this hostel were great. Rooms are spacious and they even gave us a room with a bathroom, kitchen and separate bedroom when we just booked 5 beds. Staff was funny, helpful and quite nice. Location is great for the train and the metro, though only decent for walking. There isn't really any common areas, so if you're in the market to meet people, this might not be the best place.
This hostel's staff and owner were by far the best of any hostel I've ever stayed in. The airline lost our luggage and the staff took the time while they at the desk an even while they were off work to come back and phone around for our luggage. They even arranged for our luggage to be delivered at 1am to the hostel owner's flat to ensure that we could get it and they even delivered it to our room after. Andi is just AWESOME!
