Not clean, noisy, very hot!!! Only one fan in a dorm with 10 people. Also only two working plug connections in a dorm with 10 people. Hard beds, a lot of ants, a lot of stairs to hike to the room etc. The only positive thing is that this place is cheap, but there are a lot of places where... More

The hostel sits in an awesome location, close to excellent nightlife and just across the street from where all the mayor buses arrive and depart. Stayed in a private double room, which was alright, however no real window making the room a bit stuffy and dark. Cleanliness was o.k. Downside of the excellent location is the noise from the bar/...

We stayed at the hostel for two nights in a private twin room. The rooms were clean and adequate for the price. As we stayed for new years, there was a lot of noise from the street, though this was expected. However, we found the staff unpleasant and incompetent to deal with. We used the laundry service, however they did... More

For the price you pay it is a good deal! Double room was big and clean with a decent tv and good bathroom. The staff was very friendly and helped us with any thing we needed and the location was perfect, literally steps away from where our bus dropped us. The downside is that it is noisy at night due...

Hostel's location is good. Accessible to attractions, food shops, parks etc. If you take a cab from airport to de tham street, you'll spend around 200,000 Dong. The staff are friendly and accomodating. They'll give you some tips as well. The street is also crowded and buses are noisy even in the wee hours. Later i found out that there's... More

First of all, this hostel has the best location where the action is and near the bus station. However, these streets are crawling with hotels, so I'm sure another one will give you better value for money. A/c in our room worked so and so, and also staff turn it off from reception and we had to go downstairs and... More

The price of the room is reasonable. 3 friends of mine plus me share in a room cost USD6 per night. What I like most is their staffs:-friendly, helpful and always smile. The place also strategically located at the centre of the town with a lot of restaurant, grocery shop and easy access to transportation

I stayed in this hostel four nights.Breakfast included in all rooms. I also bookend a Cu Chi Turnel tour, it was exellent and a good price as well. So if you want to book a tour, don't go elsewhere because you're not sure about the quality of your tour.. The receptionist is very friendly and can help you to find... More
