Staff were very helpful... More

We booked six days and ended up only staying three to do a two night trip elsewhere and the receptionist was very helpful and we checked out early. Stayed in a private double room and was basic just like any other hostel but well equipped. Wifi doesn't work in the room but fine in the lobby.

Do not stay in this place unless you want to leave without your money. Cleaners stole 150 US dollars from my bag and roughly the same of my friend. We were staying in a private room. Location is decent but actual hostel is in a dirty alleyway with rats.

I arrived in HCMC by train at 3:30 am and typically the taxi drivers wanted a fee which was double what I eventually paid - about 2 hours later.

We been here only one day but it was cozy and worth it. We were recommended by some girls who stayed here before, and we liked it. The main pro is the staff , they are really helpful and nice. Plus get a choice of breakfast :)
