Beeing on the road for around 2 months, i found it very refreshing to not be seen as a walking wallet. The owner and the staff are super friendly and made me and my friend feel so welcome that we stayed in Saigon way longer than we originally planned to. We even came back after going to Da Lat to...

I booked PP backpackers on the recommendation of a friend of mine, and it was great. I think we paid about $4 per night, and stayed for 4 nights, with a trip to the Mekong Delta in between. The manager was lovely, she was very helpful and booked all our trips around Ho Chi Minh (Mekong and Cu Chi), and... More

We stayed there for four nights in a double room and one night in the dorm. The double room was great with a/c, fridge, clean bathroom and a comfortable bed. Because we wanted to add one night to our reservation and all double rooms were full, we had to change to the dorm for the last night. When the a/c... More

This hostel is situated in the centre of the backpacking district in HCMC. There are bars and restaurants close by, as well being walking distance to the main attractions. The lady running the hostel is wonderful! She was so friendly and helpful, giving us tips on where to go at the best times. She also booked trips for us and... More

The room (double) was immaculately clean with a very comfy bed and air-con that wasn't noisy. Also the bathroom was a very nice, spacious en-suite that was also perfectly clean. We slept very well here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect but as the hostel is just off the main road it is quiet and so is... More

Stayed in a private double room. Nice, clean room and bathroom, with refrigerator, wifi, AC and TV. As others have mentioned, the real bonus here is the service. We got several good recommendations for restaurants in all price ranges, had a tour to the Cu Chi tunnels organized and when we were heading on Phu Quoc, the proprietor booked the... More

Stayed here for three nights in the dorm room. Its on the top floor but that's no trouble! The wifi is probably the best I've experienced on my trip so far (been to Thailand + Cambodia), there are two computers to use downstairs which aren't as bad as they look but aren't really skype standard. However there is an internet... More

Such a bargain for 6 dollars given ur 3 mins away from the main bus station and right in the backpacker district, plus only 15-30 mins walk away from all the big attractions. Most importantly the service here is AMAZING! The lady who runs it will sort anything out for u, and really goes out her way (I came back... More
