    Perfect location, close to all the action but quiet enough for a good night sleep. Comfortable room and the staff were fantastic, super helpful with organising anything you need 👍

    Pros: Comfortable beds, clean linens, free breakfast (tea, eggs, toast), free towel, hot showers all day, good location for walking and buses, close to tourist attraction bui vien street without being disrupted by noise Cons: Smoking allowed in first floor lobby and stairwell causing the smell to seep into rooms and discomfort while hanging out in the lobby. Night shift employee is difficult to communicate with due to language barriers, but he always tried his best to resolve guest concerns.

    Very friendly and helpful staff, Anthony gave us lots of information about Ho Chi Minh as well as Phu Quoc (the next leg of our trip). The room was basic but very central location and reasonably priced!

    Stayed here for 1 night with 2 friends on 19-20 Dec 2019. Before arriving, I emailed the hostel that we will arrive at around 2AM, they replied immediately and gave a pretty helpful advice considering that the hostel is located in a narrow street where only motorcycles can fit (we took grab car from the airport). 2 things I didn't like about the hostel, a staff has to open and lock the gates (padlocked) at midnight before you can go in and out; WIFI ranges from none to very slow connections.

    Arrived here from the airport for my first day in Saigon. Had a really great experience with the staff there who made me feel so welcome and wanted to help me out. The location was a bit too close to the party street for my personal liking at the time, having come off a long flight. But I enjoyed my stay there definitely!

    Overall our stay here was satisfactory and the for the cheap price wasn’t too bad at all. The room was fairly spacious , the beds okay and the location almost perfect (right next to Pub Street). Our only complaint was the toilet/washing facilities - it didn’t feel very clean and the showers were constantly cold. However, overall I would recommend this hostel for those not looking for luxury but reasonable accomadation on a limited budget.

    Wouldn’t really recommend staying here to be honest...staff were really nice and helpful, but it seemed like the place was closing down- hardly anyone staying, rooftop bar closed, not selling beer or bus tickets despite it being advertised. It was a good location but many other hostels nearby so would give them a go instead.

    Staff was very friendly and location is close to many attractions, though hard to find. Unfortunately the room did not meet our expectations nor standard cleanliness. We found ourselves getting bitten at night. We informed the staff and they said they handled it. However we continued to get bitten and later found a bed bug in our room. It was an unfortunate experience, which we were compensated for with a small refund. Not worth the hassle.
