Split into two parts, ourselves in the other, across the road; our room was more like a cheap hotel - as we had booked a private double ensuite we were super happy. The hostel across the road seemed alright, bit dimmyly lit but didnt spend much time there really. Nice staff, friendly. Our room wasn't cleaned daily but was clean on arrival. Wifi - good

This place is in walking distance of all things in town (but everywhere is pretty much like that in LP). Free, delicious breakfast and decent booking facilities for everything else. Tuk-tuks hang out front for further adventures. Wifi - good/intermittent

Watch out for the little dude, he is so cool and looks super sharp in his suit. Rooms are good size, clean and airy - our dorm had a balcony. The bathrooms are ample size and clean, better than a lot of hostels as you can actually dry yourself in them! Hosts are really friendly, nice and helpful. Strong wifi.

This place offers "hotel" accomadation at hostel prices but, really other than the lobby it's no better (in fact worse) than most hostels. The dorm we had was dank, dark and damp - we left with damp clothes - and they're poorly laid out. The bathroom sucks and doesn't have a lock. The lobby has fast PCs with good internet. Wifi very poor/non-existent in dorm, strong outside and in lobby.

Cheap and cheerful, this place is value for money if you're on a budget and don't have many quarms about standards because bathroom has seen better days. That said it is clean enough, security is okay but you get a key so at least it's locked up at night. Good wifi.

First room (prison cell) they furnished us with was awful, ants in the damp bed, no window, broken TV and A/C appeared to be decorational. We complained and got moved to a better room, had balcony, and was cleaner but bathroom had seen better days. Wifi was standard.

We got an upgrade for the first two nights, from dorm to private ensuite double for the same price as the dorm. But they asked if we would move to there newer hostel down the road - it's not great so we moved back and into the dorm here, much nicer. The staff are super friendly and very helpful, they can be a bit pushy on tours but nothing a friendly smile can't cope with. Clean and tidy. Wifi strong and good.

The owner is always around and really friendly and helpful. Good tour advice and good cu chi tunnel booked through them - our tour guide was excellent! Atmosphere was good as the room is chill-able but downstairs is more lobby like. Not all staff speak english, but then not all travellers speak Vietnamese. Wifi strong through out.

Loved the value for money, didn't eat food so no comment, but bar was fine. Pool is good for an evening cool down, but could be cleaner. Rooms are big, airy and clean. All the facilities they supply work and the bathroom is ample. Wifi okay/good.

We got recommended this place by word of mouth through other travellers. Good tip as this place rocks. Loads of stuff to do, you could probably stay a week and never leave the hostel. The staff are super cool, friendly and helpful and the place is overall clean. Wifi good/strong

Awesome bar and Charlie (the bar tender) is a wicked cocktail maker. He is also a really nice person as are all the other staff. The chef is absolutely AMAZING - highly recommended. The hostel has a good vibe and a nice place to stay and meet people. Wifi very good

We paid for the 6 bed dorm, which came with an ample sized en suite, this was great. Wifi connection strong all around and the location is great, 5 minutes walk from the train station and about 15 minutes walk to really nice places to drink and eat. We took one of the tours for the River Li, it was good value for money and they picked us up and dropped us off at the hostel. Also make sure you say hi to Mike, he is a legend and shared his rice wine with us.

The directions on the email for taking the Metro to the hostel are not good enough, indeed the Metro station is the nearest one however the directions here are wrong. You need to walk out of exit D and turn right onto Song Dynasty Street (first right) and not left at the first juncture like the email instructions stated. The 8 bed dorm we had was very small and the bathrooms were okay - showers big enough to dry in so bonus. Food in Cafe was quite nice and decent portions. There are 3 cats too.

Sorry about the direction, and real appreciate for your feedback, we now correct it. Welcome back and enjoy your trip.

It is what I would call an "industrial" hostel, loads of rooms and floors, this is a good thing though as there are plenty of people around and it is very large and spacious in the communal areas. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm, which was ample. Shared bathrooms are okay. The WIFI is just plain rubbish, can't get on it other than downstairs and when you do it is impossible to load anything, even something as simple as checking emails - probably due to the large amount of people sat round on laptops.

Fast wifi connection, that was even available on floor six. The location isn't in a tourism area, however it is 10-15 minutes to the nearest metro line (and they supply adequate directions to this). It is a hotel, not a hostel so expect budget hotel service.

The wifi in this hostel is great, by far the best so far as it works consistently - unlike most places which is intermitent at best. The 10 bed dorm we had was ample in size and very spacious, infact it included an small (small!) en suite toilet and sink and a large low table for cluttering with stuff. AC and wifi are worth it alone. Good value and free beer either/or coffee after checking in.

We paid for an en suite, as it was our first stop after a long haul from England. We ended up using the common bathroom as it was cleaner & nicer. The common room is a small section of the reception, many reviews moan about this however the large sized courtyard more than makes up for this, it is quite warm to sit out well into the twilight hours. Also note; staff don't speak much English, however I don't speak much Chinese so I don't think this is an issue at all because they are still helpful.
