Staff were very friendly and efficient. Our room was clean and bed was comfy bathroom was also good except our toilet didn't refill once flushed so we had to fill the back up ourselves with the jet wash, long!! But apart from that everything else was good and breakfast it's pretty decent too!!

This was the first place I stayed in Vietnam, and I couldn't have had a better time. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and very helpful when I booked a Cao Dai Temple and Cu Chi Tunnels tour through them (would recommend). I was in a 4-bed dorm, which was clean and comfortable, with big lockers. There is a really... More

It's a small place and a family is just running it. There are really nice and friendly people. Trying to help you with everything, booking tours, getting a taxi or anything you want There location is close to the many backpacker street and a park as well. The rooms are ok and you'll get free breakfast.

Located in the middle of the action. Clean room, decent bed, adequate shower. Didn't have the breakfast, but heard it is good. The lobby is somewhat small, so this is not the place to meet new people, but the location is great. Good value for money.

Stayed for 2 nights. Great value for money. It is 30-mins walking distance from the post office and cathedral; 20mins away from Ben Than Market. Anyway they will provide you with map on your first day. They also have free coffee and tea. The bed was comfortable and lockers are secured with its own lock. But still bring your own... More

I stayed at his hostel for just over a week and had an amazing time. Hostel is located in great location and all the staff are very friendly and quick to help me with any questions I had about the city. Free breakfast in the mornings and easy to book tours or buses through the hostel.

I felt so taken care of at this hostel. They were kind and generous and it felt like being in their home. Breakfast was delicious, the place was clean, I loved being there. They have travel options available. Book at the hostel as it is cheaper than you will find on the street. It's down an alley so I couldn't... More
