“Make sure you get your key deposit back when you check out”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

A few hours after checking out i realized i didn't get my deposit back. When i came back to ask for it i was met by denying and laughing staff. I'd rather eat 5 dollars then to sleep there again.
Other then that bad experience the beds are decent, showers are alright and the rooftop bar has free pool witch is a good way for solo travelers to meet new people. But after walking around close by a realized i can do a lot better for a lot less. High ratings its not always a good thing.

Hello everyone
We have CCTV protected you, don't worry.
But you should to make our mistake, and the we'll replay for you see what happened.
We'll sorry and refund to you if our mistake.
But you didn't want to tell us about you at that moment (what time you checked out?). You just said "you leave your key here before and you don't want to pay late check out at 14:15pm. Let's check out for you quickly and don't charge your key lost."
When we request you come to our CCTV room to check together, and then you didn't want to come.
You accept to pay after that. And then you write something like your comments.
We thinking what happen to us???
Please, everyone thinking about this story. And you should think carefully before you say. Because we are not children!!!
Welcome to VIETNAM INN SAIGON.

Stayed here for one night and found it met my needs for the nights stay. WIFI, rooftop bar, with a good section of drinks, however the food is not very nice! The view from the roof makes up for that.
The shower and toilet are in a cubical together and the water was cold both times I went in.
Close to the main strip with bars and restaurants. Like a 10min walk and the makets are also a 10min walk away to.

They also have a travel information desk to help you continue your trip and the different modes of transport.

Easy to find, walking distance away from many attraction! Great place to meet other travelers. Great atmosphere to the roof top bar! Pool table and darts. Staff are very helpful. Dorms are basic, very good price. Bathrooms look new. Good shower pressure!

Overall it is a good hostel. Dormitories are kept very clean. They have a bar which is a good place to meet fellow backpackers. Service is good. I booked the chu chi tunnels, Mekong delta tour and my bus to Phnom Penh through the hostel and they where excellent tours and the price is decent. Its also a short distance to the war remnants museum, its about 10, 15 minute walk and its as short walk to the many bars and restaurants of Saigon. Overall I had an enjoyable stay here

This is a fantastic place to meet fellow backpackers in a clean and modern hostel, also great for booking trips and tours. Good bar/common room with a pool table and free popcorn. The only place for a backpacker to stay in Ho Chi Minh!

Staff helped us store our bags and let us pay later so we could pay cash and not have to pay CC fees. This was a big more pricey that we usually go form but the double room was impeccably clean and spacious, with a huge window and powerful AC. I am curious as to why there was a bar fridge in the room since we weren't allowed to bring outside food and drink into the hotel.

I loved my time here. I couldn't fault it. Clean, friendly staff, comfy beds. No problems at all. In a really good location and full of other backpackers.
The roof top bar made fab food and provided us with good service.
I would highly recommend this place.
