Property Description

The Common Room Project (TCRP) is anything but common, while you visit Saigon in a warm, cozy setting with everything you need to make your trip an amazing one!

Instead of a noisy rest stop in the center of the city, TCRP is located in a peaceful alley on Nguyen Trai Street, District 5 (a few minutes from the center) where you can explore and experience the local scene while enjoying all the amenities from home. TCRP will be the warmhearted highlight in your journey.

The 48 beds in 4 different-style dorms welcome travelers from the loners, to traveling lovers and groups of friends. We also have private rooms that rival any nice hotel, with service second to none.

Staying at TCRP, you cannot ignore the rooftop bar. Not too noisy, it is a space for you to chill out with your new friends here, with a pint of beer and observe a peaceful corner of this busy city. And this rooftop also become a private place for your special celebrations whenever you want.

We believe that a home cannot be a real home without any common activities between the family's members. We have games, musical instruments, cards, TV and comfy lounges for you to use and enjoy. You can choose to have our wonderful, nightly dinners with both local and Western food, with folks from around the world to enjoy and share your experiences with, or learn how to cook true Vietnamese dishes in our cooking classes.

Anything but common. That's what we strive to be while giving you value for your hard-earned money. Join us at TCRP and make your trip a relaxing, memorable experience you won't soon forget! View House Rules

    Super chill hostel, the staff was amazing and so helpful. You can definitely walk to all the parties and bars . But it’s far away enough to get a good night sleep if you don’t want to . I was in a 12 person dorm and it was fine .

    This was such a lovely place. Never have the staff at a hostel made me feel like im being welcomed in their home. Thank you so much! Also the rooftop bar is an amazing spot to meet the other ppl staying at the hostel. So easy to get talking and I was looking forward to going back to the hostel every evening to hang out with them. Best hostel!

    We really enjoyed our time here. This hostel is the perfect place to chill and meet some really interesting people from around the world and from all walks of life. The staff were so lovely (especially the wonderfully friendly Vietnamese guy at the front desk whose name escapes me. Sorry but you were awesome). Super cool decor and vibes. Will be coming back when i’m in Ho Chi Minh again.

    I loved it here, I ended up extending my stay since this hostel is excellent and I kept meeting great people. Chill vibe and most people are friendly/social, it’s super easy to make friends. The rooftop bar and incredibly welcoming staff are major highlights

    TCRP was exactly what it says it is: a great place to stay and get to interact with other travelers. The laid back vibe of the common areas certainly encourage that - definitely check out the rooftop if you stay here!

    BEST HOSTEL IN HCMC!! Loved it, stayed at a few others in the city; none compare to TCR. The staff are fantastic & always go the extra mile (special shout out to Huc, who helped my boyfriend sort a Valentine’s Day surprise & was a general ray of sunshine). The vibe is awesome, the beautiful rooftop bar is perfect for a chill drink. Can’t stress how well the hostel is set up for meeting other travellers. Environmentally friendly and spotlessly clean. We extended our stay and would go again. ❤️❤

    One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Really friendly and cool people on the staff who were willing to help with anything. People knew the city well and gave us all the safety guidelines and precautions we needed to take and gave us great food recommendations as well. Lovely rooftop at the night and lovely guests as well.

    Wonderful stay at one of the nicest and cleanest hostels in all Vietnam. Located in district 5, it’s a bit removed from the chaos of district 1 and the rest of the city. Friendly volunteer staff (although some did have complaints about personnel management) and a wonderful atmosphere made it for a particularly enjoyable stay. I would personally return to this hostel.

    An oasis in the middle of Ho Chi Minh. Perfect for those looking to escape the typical ‘backpacker’ trail yet still experience hostel life. The location is slightly out of the centre so Grabs are needed to get from here to there quickly, personally I enjoyed this as I was able to see the city on the back of a bike. All of the staff here are amazing, they make you feel so welcome. Big shout out to Hoc who helped with all of my questions and even offered his help whilst traveling Vietnam!
