Stayed for a total of 6 nights here as I traveled from the south to central Vietnam and back. Loved the place and the free breakfast that comes with the dorm room. The beds are comfy and wi-fi is pretty good in the room. The common area is quite small though and I've always had a pet peeve with guesthouses... More

The place is clean and away from the road. Not too noisy at night. The receptionist was very helpful in recommending places of interests in Saigon. She even got her colleague to bring me to the bust stop near benh thanh market on my departure. I was pleasantly surprised! Strongly recommend this hostel.

They were incredible helpful and that made a difference during my stay. they are truly amazing, so friendly (all of them), genuinely keen to help and chat about... More

Stayed at this hostel for two nights and I wish we could have stayed more! I had such a great time there. This hostel was definitely the best in Ho Chi Minh. The location is also perfect for backpackers. The rooms are very nice and spacious for a 6 bed dorm. The breakfast included is a bun and jam and... More

Judging from the online photos and the cost per night of this hostel, I didn't really expect much when I booked 4 nights with them. It's relatively cheap compared to other hostels in the area. They have these homey and peaceful atmosphere once you enter the hostel. Not too crammed unlike other hostels with too many backpackers crowding the lobby/common... More

The hotel is down an alleyway behind a food market which allows for a great night of sleep in a very central location. This is located in the backpackers part of town and is a good sized room for the price. The social scene didn't seem to exist although they endorse it with a free beer for every guest from... More
