A real well located hostel in the party district, this backpackers was clean and full of friendly people. We had breakfast included which was nice, and the street behind the alleyway was great for some street food and to sit on the stools with scooters brushing past, great experience!

There are two hostels with the same name, and I can only assume most of the reviews here are for Saigon Backpackers @ Cong Quynh, which is about 100m away. When I walked into the 8 bed dorm, I thought the room was full because all the beds looked like someone had slept in them. The blankets were in a... More

The rooms were clean and basic but new. The bathrooms were also really clean and we never had to line up which is always a plus. The Cafe below provided a set breakfast and also other tasty meals! A great hostel in a really good location.

We stayed in a double bed private room for 4 nights and what I can say is I can't ask for more for what I've paid.

They gave us... More

Onestop was great..very good location and clean and welcoming. We arrived early in the morning after a night bus and the staff were very kind and let us have a shower and relax despite our check in not for a few hours. They will happily organize good cheap tours for you, and are efficient and reliable.
