This place is way above your average budget accommodation, the kind of service and value you will only find in South East Asia. The staff is pretty helpful and you can see in their eyes that customer care is what they are all about. My dorm was of a fair size, bed above average quality, toilets were pretty decent and...

The room is clean. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast is great! !! But I think it's a bit difficult to find this hostel. My friends and I took so much time to find where it is. Anyway the location is good. There is a morning market, a bus station and you can walk to the attractions... More

LOCATION: arrived in the vicinity around 1am (unholy time). Although the place is difficult to find, you just have to be mindful. Buildings/houses are numbered sequentially, so when you arrived around the bldg 370, you are near. The slash means it is in an alley (so look for an alley nearby. Actually, the alley is near a market..If it is... More

I spent my first 2 nights on the beginning of my trip through South East Asia. I came back 8 weeks after. The staff was always smiling. They booked a home-stay for me, bus and also the taxi to get back to the airport. The rooms are very clean, the entire place is quiet, it is perfect for travelers who... More

I arrived at the hostel 3 nights ago without my luggage as it was lost. The hostel staff was so friendly and understanding that she tried to call the airlines for me a couple of times. She gave me lots of tips about where to get daily necessities. The breakfast was made fresh in front of you - I tried... More

Incredibly friendly staff and a very social atmosphere. Placed in District 1 near all the attractions. Had a really good time here and met lots of excellent people. Good computers and internet and very reasonably priced. Would recommend to anyone staying in Ho Chi Minh.

This is a great hostel in the centre of Ho Chi Minh. I'll have to say that it was a little hard to find, because it's down an alley besides a busy market, but when we finally arrived it was all better. We stayed in a private room which had lots of space (cabins), fridge, television etc. and most important:... More

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
