What I loved I loved most about this place: very relaxed backpackers, a nice sense of respect and community, no noisy party people. ;-) You make new friends immediately. Also, the staff was awesome: always friendly and in a good mood and very caring and helpful. They made me feel like being at home.Also, it's close to the Backpackers centre... More

Brilliant clean hostel on the main street in district 1. Near to the bus station next to the morning market. Welcoming atmosphere in the city. Clean dorms and comfy bunk beds. Nice, clean bedding and bathroom. Teasty beakfast is included. Staff are helpful and they are able to communicate in English very well. Peaceful oasis, not a party place but... More

Yes, the staff is friendly nd the first look is good... but too many negative things happened: - they didn't fix out shower in the room after I asked many times, neither they offered another room or alternative. - I had several bites of insects in 2 nights (windows closed) and needed a hospital days later - the Mekong Delta...

We stayed there for two nights and the minute we entered this place we felt welcomed. Everything seemed very professional and the two girls that worked at the reception where always willing to help and had good advices for dinner, transport, tours... Breakfast was included and was good and sufficient. The room was clean and had everything you could need.

I came back here after long time travelling to the North of Vietnam. And everything was still perfect. I felt happy when all the staffs remembered my name and treated me extremely nice. They helped me print the flight ticket out without any fees and arranged for me a biker who would take me to the airport (the price of... More

This place welcomes you in and makes you feel like an appreciated guest. The check-in desk staff will assist with most questions, help with booking travel or excursions or just ask you how your day was. The 'guys' will cook you an awesome baguette with salad and egg sandwich faster than a couple of sips of your awesome coffee -iced... More

This hostel is in small alley and quite difficult to find where it is, but the location is great, just 3 minutes walking to the center of backpackers town and 15 minutes walking to the heart of Ho Chi Minh city. The dorm is super clean and well equipment. The staff is very nice, friendly and really really helpful. The... More

Nothing special, the location is quite good. The double room we had is nice as well. The staff is okay and nice (not grumpy, nor very extraordinary helpfull) and the tour they organised to the Chi Chi tunnels was average. No reason not to sleep, no reason to sleep. The communal room was nothing special, dark, so not really a... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in a twin room. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Great place to meet other backpackers- especially over a free beer in reception at 6pm! Rooms were clean and spacious with air-conditioning. Check out was 12pm. Located in Pham Ngu Lao close to bars and restaurants but behind a local market and down an... More

I think Phan Anh is one of the best hostel I've ever stayed in. It's a big surprise for me when the room is super clean with the ensuite bathroom. I can tell you I had free great Vietnamese milk coffee every morning in breakfast, it's tasty. And happy hour is super fun. I met many interesting travelers here and... More
