    Sweet little hostel in the middle of the busy walking street of district 1, but down a quiet alley so no noise in the evening. Facilites are new and clean, friendly crew of Vietnamese staff managed by a lovely lady called Hailie. Were helpful with local services and trips to the Mekong Delta. They have this amazing 2 day trip called Mekong Madness and worth doing for sure. Had beers on the happy hour in the evwning on the rooftop bar and ended up staying longer than i should. 10/10

    Location is great for Ho Chi Minh City. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. Very clean rooms and no bugs at all. I would definitely stay here again if I was going back to Ho Chi Minh City!

    Lovely staff, and great hostel! Perfect location to be amongst the main backpacker madness, but also enjoy some quiet at the end of a long, hot day. Hailie and the other ladies were great at hosting people and so helpful with tours/buses. Our dorm stay was great and in-fact better than our private room. The private rooms’ bathroom needs some work doing, quite leaky. Would definitely recommend though! Rooftop nice bonus too.

    New and upcoming hostel which was fun to see. However they still have a few kinks to work out such as cleaner bathrooms. Nothing unusable but still a little old-looking for such a new hostel. We were the only ones in our 4 bed dorm for three nights which was pretty nice. They also had welcome beers and 2-for-1 happy hour from 5-6. The location and staff were the best. Super close to the busiest part of town but with none of the noise, traffic or limited options typical to that part of town.
