“Average location & good service attitude, less amenities & wifi's not so stable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Average location, the hostel is within the foreigners backpacking area of Pham Ngu Lao, that was nice. But, the hostel itself is in a livinghood lane, it was not so easy to find it at the first time and we also spent couple times to remember its actual location in the later days...

Good service attitude, I guess it's family operated, the "staff", or say, the owners, were quite friendly & helpful even they can speak very "limited" English...The room was quite big for us, that was good. And the "staff" will cook some simple breakfast for you if you ask them to do, I'd like to comment them as good service attitude other than tastes,

Less amenities, it's only a cheap backpacker guesthouse, what more can I expect for? I buy the toothbrush, shampoo, slipper, water etc. by myself in the store nearby...They have towels inside the room but i never used them...

Wifi, available but not so stable sometime...Tissue is available but looks not so good.

Room Tip: Acceptable or okay for simple and local homestay, but worse if you treat it a hotel.

cheap place to sleep in backpackers area in HCMC. nevertheless i would not reccomend it to anyone, because for 2-3 Usd you can have double room in real hotel nearby. rooms are dirty as well as towels. Staff is very friendly and helpful, but it's not enough, especially when competition in Saigon is so big.
