Tucked away in a quiet alley in a busy city. The dorm was neat and cosy. If you ever get lost on your way back to thus hostel at night, just keep an eye out for the friendly "one dollar noodle" woman just along the roadside and you'll know you're there.

After a terrible first nights stay in HCMC in the worst accommodation imaginable we came across this hostel, it felt like a gift from above, everything was so clean and welcoming with lovely staff.

The hostel is beautiful, clean and with prepared staff. We spent 1 night here and were positively surprised with the quality if compared with other places around with the same price (or more!). Breakfast is also good and they give free coffee and tea during the day.

I was here over the lunar new year and had a good time. Te hostel is in a great location, kind of in an alley but a lot of hostels are down there too. Not the most social place, possibly due to lack of seating and space in the lobby but the rooms were clean. I would return

I stayed 3 nights in a double room on the western side of the 4th floor. WiFi access was scant in my room. WiFi was available in the reception area as was other people's used cigarette smoke.

Dorms have their own bathroom inside the room. There is a locker for your backpack inside your dorm. Well located, walking distance from main attractions and near the Bui Vien St with lots of street food, bars and restaurants. Clean and safe. The receptionist, I think his name was "Tri" was very helpful and friendly.

This hotel is one of the best places to rest after a long day visiting the city. Well trained receptionist, comfortable facilities and good location really make me impressed. Thank you for beautiful services, i will probably choose this hotel on my future trips to Vietnam.
