Stayed here for a few nights while travelling through Vietnam - comfortable room, good A/C and decent value. The lady who runs it is SO helpful regarding booking buses, tours etc and just giving general advice like where to get some good food. Highly recommended!

Overall we (me and a friend) had a pleasant stay at PP Backpackers. The room was spacious, very clean and well equipped. The location is perfect. Right in the middle of the backpacker area. The staff is more then friendly. Willing to help with anything. There's loads of hostels to choose from in HCMC, but this one is definitely recommended.

I stayed here on 2 or 3 different occasions between December 2013 - April 2014. I can't fault anything. There's not really a lot I can say.. The staff made me feel like a member of the family. When I left I nearly had a tear in my eye. I didn't want to leave! I would recommend this place to... More

I'd like to start by saying the people are very helpful, the lad who cleans the rooms is a legend; offers for you to move around into better located bunk (a the AC is terrible) and I'm sure people shift all the time and he has to re do beds. MY experience only comes from the dorm on the 4th... More

The staff is good and friendly. The guy who cleans the place up quite likes his job and is thorough and amicable. Everything I purchased with them was cheap, including tours (Mekong delta trip was 40% less than what others paid on the same tour) and they'll will refer you to the right places for a deal (websites or honest...

This is a friendly and great budget hostel/hotel to stay at in Saigon. I have stayed here a few times over the last few years both in the hotel rooms and the dorm. The location is ideal for the backpacker, it is right in the heart of their hangouts. It's also a good location for anyone to base themselves who... More

Very laid back and relaxed little gem in Ho Chi Minh City. Bigh, the owner, is a very sweet, honest and sincere host. You won't find anyone who cares more about her guests. We stayed in a double room with private ensuite which was clean and comfortable. You can book your trips and tickets via the hostel, no hastle and... More

The bathroom of the dorm is not very clean, so after two days there I moved to a private room which are very comfortable and include towels. The staff is helpful and location can't be better. Prices are very reasonable both for the dorm and the private rooms.
