Very clean rooms, efficient and friendly staff willing to help with any question, delicious breakfast and near the centre of it all. They took care of my laundry and had... More

To start with, the place was impeccable and very clean. I stayed at the dorm in a comfortable bed and enjoyed the best shower in a long time. The dorm had lockers for your belonging but they were a bit to small to fit a big backpack, just lock the most important stuff like pass, computer and cash. A good... More

All sorts of services from laundry to tour desk. They are very efficient and try and satisfy, with a smile, all your requests. The female dorm room has got 3 bunks in it and en suite bathroom. Remote to control a/c, big lockers for your backpack and a reading light and power socket for each bed. Breakfast is very basic... More

This was one of the best hostels I stayed in while backpacking around Asia. The rooms and bathrooms were so clean it felt like it was hotel standard. There wasn't much communal space but the guests made the most of it and tried to squeeze in the reception and breakfast area as much as possible. The hostel encouraged the guests... More

The breakfast was just fine, I had a good time with my roommates. The room was comfortable, the shower room was nice. The... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in both dorm and twin rooms. Both very clean and well kept. The staff were friendly and nothing was ever too much. The included breakfast of sandwiches and iced coffee was excellent.

I spent 6 nights in a double room here. Everything was great. Firstly, the accomadtion equipment met my satisfaction. A spacious room with strong A/C, clean bathroom, cable TV, mini fridge, soft bed. And one thing i like most is that it very quiet at night. Secondly, the staffs very hospitable. They sat down and talk with me, enjoyed the... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. I stayed in the 8 bed female dorm which was spotlessly clean. My towel and sheets were changed regulary. The hostel staff were very helpful helping me with boooking a bus and boat ticket to Phu Quoc. The manager was very kind too. I wasn't leaving Ho Chi Minh City until 10pm... More
