I stayed here for a total of 9 nights. The dorm rooms, while small, have everything you really need in a guest house. The staff here are some of the nicest, most helpful people I have ever met, and I will highly recommend it to everyone back home.

Decent guesthouse. Dorm room was a little cramped for space but had all the facilities necessary for a backpacker. I found it odd that the bathrooms are outside like on the balcony but I guess it's Vietnam and anything goes in Vietnam. Brushing your teeth on the balcony is actually a rather soothing experience!! Staff were good. I think you... More

My friends and I (5 young Australian girls) stayed there for 2 nights... It's not a party hostel by any means but it is very accommodating and the facilities are reasonable for the price. The staff are very helpful and can assist in planning your time in Ho Chi Minh. The hostel is in really great location - close to... More

This hostel isn't much to look at and some parts are a little old and worn. BUT, I loved staying here. It's close to a lot (it's in a kind of backpacker district, near nightlife but quiet, lots of food and shops around) and within about a 20 minute walk for things like the War Remnants Museum, Post Office, etc....

I stayed there for 2 nights as I was stopping over in Ho Chi Minh and I was impressed by this simple hostel. Slightly difficult to find at the beginning in a narrow lively street but once you get there, the family is very friendly, always smiling and ready to help the backpackers plan their next trip. The dorms were... More

First, the pros: the staff were awesome here! They showed us through a map, explained all the procedures we had to know about the hostel (check in/out, breakfast, doorbell for late night), answered questions, and made sure we knew where we were going when we checked out. The location was great, but this isn't a standout on its own as... More

Nothing to write home about, but also nothing to complain about. The hostel is in a good location, but not unlike the other hundred hostels in the same area. The room was fine. It was quiet, had AC and a TV. It was a bit dark, with only a window facing a brick wall, but hey it's a big, crowded... More

Sweet people, English can sometimes be difficult but you will manage. The location is great, most of the better activities are within walking distance.It is right in the center but in a sweet little side street so its quiet. The rooms are clean and have AC, Fans, hot showers, clean sheets. Wifi is good. They will not overcharge you (much)... More

This was my first experience of backpacking in Vietnam. I stayed here for two nights and would of been happy to stay longer. My bed was comfortable, the showers, WIFI and lockers up to standard. The staff were friendly and accommodating to my needs. The guesthouse is centrally located near backpackers street and a short walk from the central bus... More

Great hostel and the staff are very helpful. Offer maps around the city as well as cheap trips to the tunnels and Mekong delta. Rooms are basic but clean. Excellent location. Breakfast is good, free tea and coffee all day. Ashley
