This is a fantastic hostel. The staff are really friendly and helpful, it's impeccably clean and the breakfast is great! Only slight problem was the air con in my dorm not working the first night, but they got an engineer in the next day to fix it - can't ask for much more!

One of the best hostels that I have stayed in, a warm and helpful welcome. The room was big, clean and had a good sized bed. The wifi was free and super fast, the breakfast was really nice and so was the happy hour. The location is close to everything but far enough away so you can sleep. The staff... More

I stayed at female dorm for 5 days. Clean room, nice air conditioner, clean toilet, and nice location. It was not that easy to find a hostel at the first time, but once you know where your hostel is, you will find that this hostel is located at nice place. Staffs are all cool and nice. couldn't get to have... More

This was the first hostel we stayed at in Vietnam. We were greeted with a nice cool drink which was great as we weren't used to the heat and humidity if Vietnam yet! We stayed in a private room which was really nice and clean, Breakfast was great (particularly the passionfruit drink). More of a private hostel than a party... More

I originally booked a three person private room but unfortunately they overbooked. Instead they gave my two friends and I an entire 8 person dorm which was okay. The bathroom was nice and clean and the room was okay but small. Downstairs is nice and the people working are very helpful. They have a small seating area where you can... More

We stayed here with another couple for 3 nights in the mixed dorm. There was some confusion about which bed/lockers were available. We returned to find someone in one of our beds. Apart from that it was a comfortable stay. Most staff were very helpful. Breakfast was good but they could do with air-con as it's very stuffy in the... More

Bars, restaurants, street food places, the bus station and the sights of district 1 are all within a few minutes walking distance. In the morning there is a market with local food, fruits and vegetables at the end... More
