    Did a great Mekong Delta tour through this hostel and got to see the floating market, rice noodle farm, cycle through the local village, and row through a canal. Very scenic and affordable as compared to tours we looked at in Ho Chi Minh city. 400000 dong each which is about $18 USD compared to $65-70 quotes in HCM for same 6 hour tour. Our host Hieu also prepared us lunch, gave us a free ride to the tour, and a free cooking class ! He was amazing and the best host we’ve had during our trip!

    Fantastic staff and a great location down a quieter alley just off the main backpacker drag in Ho Chi Minh City. The bathroom was a little basic but it did the job. The pancakes for breakfast were really lovely. The staff also helped us get an amazingly cheap ride to the airport on departure. I would definitely stay here again - it feels like you are welcomed into a family home.

    Good, fresh cooked-to-order breakfast. The staff are helpful with booking trips and giving advice on places to eat and visit. The location is perfect, just off the main bar street so a little quieter for sleeping but perfect for partying. It is also right where all the day trips go from and all the buses leave from.

    Kind staff and tasty breakfast. Not a very social hostel though, but it is in a great location. The rooms are very basic, you get what you pay for.

    We stayed in a room above reception with windows that barely worked. They played music and watched TV until like 12am and started it again at like 6am. Beds were also incredibly hard. Good location though and nice reception staff.

    The hostel is currently under major renovation, maybe they change the management thats why. NO breakfast, NO credit card payment facility, NO curtains in the room & NO free drinks. Free WIFI on all floors, rooms are cleaned daily and towels are provided. Airconditioned unit is not working properly, bit warm.

    Reception at this guesthouse were really friendly and helpful. They arranged two low-cost tours for ya. But the guesthouse is under major construction, as is the street on which it is situated. In fact, the guesthouse is now located in a completely different building (next door) to what was on this site. The room we stayed in was very small, obviously completely different than the photos, and had not been cleaned (no linens or towels, even). It was dingy and dirty.

    Dirty sheets! No air conditioning! The accomodation contains just the very basics, so that you know what you are getting into. Not even soap was provided in the toilet. I understand I booked the basic room, but I wasn't expecting it to have no window. The AC unit in the room was not working, and the receptionist explained how the other vent in the room provides AC to all the rooms. NOT TRUE! They changed the dirty sheets for other dirty sheets. Just not washed properly. Very dissapointing!
