I stayed in a dorm three nights when I first arrived in Vietnam. I also stayed in a private room right before I left for home. It was extremely clean and you had to take off shoes before you went inside. The location was right next to the morning market which made it very cultural and the free breakfast and... More

Excellent place to stay. Staff are warm and friendly and rooms are very clean and secure. Hostel is in a great location, in backpackers district but not right on the main party street so rooms are quiet. Free wifi

I stayed for three nights in a female 6 bed dorm. It was clean, the sheets & towels were changed every day. A/c was good but a fan as well would be awesome! Location was a bit funny- down a weird little alleyway but a very short walk to the bars etc which was great. The staff were not the... More

Close to so much without being in the way of the city. The staff was extremely accommodating, and while there isn't a ton of room for lots of people to hang out, it's better that way. Very charming, and though we did have an issue with extending our stay, they called the hostel across the alley to make sure we... More

Really good hostel! Dorms are a bit small but very clean with ensuite bathroom and very big lockers. Each bed has a reading lamp and charging point. The staff is very friendly, the breakfast delicious and the hostel is in walk distance of all the hotspots. I also booked a day tour to the cu chi tunnels and a mekong... More

I was supposed to stay three nights over two separate bookings initially but I cancelled my first two nights due to some changes. I regretted the cancellation after staying the single night because it was a really good backpacking experience in Vietnam! --------------- LOCATION The hostel is located in an alley along a really busy street, which really helped with...

I had a great stay here. It got pretty good reviews--it's in an alleyway with a lot of other hostels, so there's a great travel vibe. It's close to all party streets but not right in it, which I like. I had fun with the staff and they do a nightly happy hour. Showers were lukewarm but it was so... More

We were moved to here because booking.com allowed us to book in to a sister hostel when it was already full. Brilliant service with $14 pick up from the airport and a lovely cool drink on arrival. The room was quiet, very clean and well equipped with everything we needed. We weren't able to get any hot water out of... More

Stayed there for twice and it was absolutely perfect. The room was clean and made up every day by housekeepers. Breakfast included in the room rate already. And they were willing to give me more when I didn't even asked for that. Located in the alley so not too much noisy at night. Just a lil problem about the hote... More
