Clean dormitory rooms with aircons. Good bathrooms and decent wifi. Location is alright and there is a decent signpost so pretty easy to find. Met some good people in this hostel and it really has all the facilities necessary for a backpacker. I can recommend to others.

For its value, this hostel is ideal for all travelers who are looking for an affordable place to stay in HCMC. I stayed in the single room on the first floor: clean, comfortable and the A/C makes for an easy night of sleep. Highly recommended.

Perfectly located in the backpacker's area this hostel provides the basics of everything a hostel needs: comfy beds, aircon, clean bathrooms, breakfast, a kitchenette and a common room with a tv, a pool table and pcs and free wifi. The staff is friendly and helpful and you can easily book busses to other cities nearby.
