I arrived in HCMC alone and went to a hotel that a couple on my bus were staying in because it was easy and i was tired. But the next day i moved here because i needed something more sociable as a solo traveller. I met lots of people within minutes and the foyer is great for meeting people and the rooftop bar is cheap and very sociable. Beds were clean and comfy and air con was baltic which was great. The staff didnt have great English which made things a bit hard but the girls on the tour desk were always happy to help. Security is good, swipe cards for everything. One issue i had was that there was nowhere to leave my passport/valuables once i had checked out. I had a night bus and didnt want to carry everything on me as several people had been robbed around the hostel. They have lockers behind reception but they were all full of towels and they werent willing to move themvand i didnt want to leave it all in the.luggage store that people were in and out of all day. So i used a friends locker instead.
Also the location isnt great the road is busy and we heard of.quite a few people getting things snatched along the road.
