The smaller sized rooms are a nice change from other hostels. I was in a 4 bunk room with ensuite bathroom and aircon. The endless stairs up to the 4th floor were a tiring but manageable. The room was cleaned daily (even once when they thought I had left they took away all the stuff I had "left behind" but... More

Nice little Guesthouse in the middle of HCMC. Very clean double bedroom and very helpful staff. They book your tours and bus tickets too. So can recommend that too. Free beer at 7.30. Very good WiFi. Stay here!

I had my bag stolen by a motorbike taxi driver when I was out in Ho Chi Minh City. Thankfully, the owner of the guesthouse, Mrs Ngoc, was immensely helpful in enabling me to file a report with the Vietnamese police. They did not speak English, I did not speak much Vietnamese, so Mrs Ngoc's translating skills were invaluable. She... More

There is no lift (we were on 4th floor) but the staff helped me with hefty rucksack! They were attentive with storing bags, making an early breakfast and helping us check in. Good location near...

We stayed 2 nights in this really nice hostel. The rooms are basic but very clean. The hostel is located really convenient, close to nightlife and a good starting point exploring the city. All the things they organized for us (Mekong delta, transport to the airport) worked perfectly. The family is really nice and it's fun to live with them.... More

The hostel is well located near plenty of restaurants and bars. Very touristic area. The accommodation is basic but clean and quite spacious for the budget. The staff was nice with us, however we've booked for 4 nights and they had place only for two so we had to move after two nights. They moved us to the hostel next... More

Breakfast was good and the staff were really friendly and helpful! Our alarm didn't go off the morning of our cu chi tunnel your but they woke us up in time and made... More
