    I stayed here for one night before departing for another city, great walking distance to bus stops. service was great, it's quiet because it's in a private neighborhood, but just couple steps, you're in the very central area. Will be back next time I'm back in Saigon!

    Great hostel host. Very close to the main strip but far enough away for it to be quiet and peaceful. The owner is very helpful.

    Rooms were pretty congested. But the staff were amazing. And the location is great. You don't need the atmosphere inside the hostel as the atmosphere outside is just awesome.

    Had a nice stay at The Prince of Whales Hostel. It's a small hostel which only appears to have a few rooms. Room was quiet and had good A/C and private bathroom. Perfect location and walking distance to restaurants, night life, and attractions. It's in an alley and a little hard to find if you're using Staff was very friendly.

    Very nice hostel. Cannot reccomend the location enough. Just minutes from the bar street yet perfect for a quiet night in where u hear no noise. Would have liked to have seen the bathrooms cleaned a bit in my 3 day stay. This is not a hostel for solo backpacker or party looker however it was perfect for what we wanted.

    Our stay there was okay. In total, everything worked. But there really was no atmosphere, we also didn't really see one of the other guests, which was sad. The A/C was very loud, and there was no card payment possible.
