I saw the location as an advantage. It's a nice 15 mins walk to the centre and the hostel is surrounded by green. The common room downstairs is quite nice and everything is generally clean. One major inconvenient. The lavatory in the bathroom is so tinny that it made brushing teath a challenging experince. I was wondering how everyone else solved that problem until I was awaken at 1 am by a guy brushing his teeth in a lavatory INSIDE the dorm! Impossible not to wake up with that!

Art Hole Hostel is very centrally located, which is great! I slept in a 4 bedroom dorm and it was quite spacious. Beds are a bit squeaky but I always take earplugs when I sleep in hostels. It's great that they have a locker (free) for everyone in the room.

The location could not be better! However, this brings the slight disadvantage of noise from the street (no double glazing). The room was spacious but it had one obvious disadvantage: whereas what had reserved was a "two beds room", there was only a double bed. Their argument was that "two beds" is different from twin. I wonder how that is possible according to English language...

Thank you!:) And sorry about my colleague's argument. It's our fault:( But - as she showed them - there was a pull-out sofa in the room in case they didn't want to be together in the double bed. Pal

The hostel was quite nice. It wasn't very centrally located but that also meant it was quieter than where the nightlife happens. I stayed in a 20 ppl dorm and the beds all had curtains, etc. which gave you some privacy. Staff was quite helpful.

People already said how nice staff was and its true. Problem is with facilities. Bathrooms are mixed and showers don't have enough space. You just have to accept giving up on decency (I'm obviously on the prudish side). Besides I don't know what was wrong with showers but I had to take cold showers twice. I know it's healthy but it's unpleasant. At last there are no individual lights for each bed so people need to turn on the main light when entering the room.

Hey ! Thank you for reviewing our hotel and for bringing to our attention your experience with the shower. We located the shower you are talking about for our maintenance department. They will inspect it right away and address any existing challenges. We are an eco-friendly hostel, our illumination system is activated by movement detecting sensors. Moreover each room has its own lamps so guests that come in later don't bother the ones already sleeping. Obrigada! PILOT Crew

Even though the facilities were great, the dorm I stayed in for the 1st night had a major problem: an air com blasting straight towards my bed. I suppose the lower beds in the bunks were OK but I had an awful night. I asked to be moved to another dorm for the 2nd night and the staff was very helpful. In the 2nd dorm there was no air con (thank God, I wouldn't have survived a 2nd night). Apart from the ac, it was one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in.

The place couldn't be better located! On the downside, given that in dorms with 4 people you need to keep the window open, this centrality comes with some noise as it there are quite a few pubs and clubs around it. Nothing that earplugs can't solve, though. There was a big effort from the staff in keeping the place clean: there was a group of guys in a stag party that would leave the kitchen a mess before they went out but the staff would come immediately to clean it. Breakfast was also good.

The bedrooms are good and each bed has a curtain which is good when other roommates arrive late / leave early. There is no lift so if you have heavy luggage be ready to carry it up. The showers are in the basement only which forces you to go down every morning. And the water was jist slightly warm.

I stayed in a twinn bedroom at first which was great: very clean and confortable. In the last night I stayed in a dorm and this one was not so great: the shared bathroom was inside the dorm which meant that when a guy decided to shower at 4 am, it was impossible not to wake up. The staff is really nice and helpful but the location is a bit dingy: one needs almost one hour by metro to the centre of Seoul.

The staff is extremely nice and helpful. As an example, I can say that we were booking a 1 day trip and they suggested another agency with exactly the same program that cost less than half the price. In the end the trip was amazing... B&D is located very close to the city center and facilities are very clean.

There was noone in reception when we wanted to check in nor when we wanted to check out. We had to call a number and a lady who couldn't speak one word of English was sent. Bpth times we had to spend a long time for her.

It's perfectly located, in the center of Saigon but not too noisy. Conditions are very good. However, it's not the sort of place to meet people traveling, it's more quiet type...

Staff is extremely nice and beds are quite confortable. However, the rooms get a bit hot during the night if windows are closed and noisy if windows are open... AC would be welcome! Shower facilities could also be improved.
