              The Hostel is down an alleyway and does not face onto the road son is relatively quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful. The pictures of the rooms on Agoda must he a few years old as there is a bit more wear and tear in the room but seems to be the norm. Bathroom was not the cleanest when we arrived but staff are responsive.

              Best budget hostel in Saigon”

              I tried 3 different budget hostels in Ho Chi Minh with raitings higher than 9. All 3 were good. But this was the only one where it didn't smell like some chemicals or it wasn't noisy. As a bonus I was alone in a 4 bed room. The hosts are the nicest and very helpful people! Would definitely stay again!

              In the end we never stayed here. While I had been in contact with the staff concerning our late arrival time and whether a pickup was available, we were surpised upon arrival that a customer did not want to leave her room that day and therefore had no place for us. Instead of notifying us before, they simply waited until we arrived to tell us the news. After having traveled 14 hours and arriving at the hotel at 22h, we were not too happy. They offered to move us to another hotel and checkin to Cucu the next day. Thanks but no thanks. Wasting a day of checking out and in (when it was their mistake) to loose out on what little precious time we had in Saigon. We declined and found another place closeby. As we told the receptionist, had we been warned ahead of time, we would have more than likely taken their offer. What a cuckoo way to deal with such a situation.

              Lovely little hostel run by very friendly and hardworking staff. Hostel is set back from the main road down an alley so there is little noise other than the birds in the morning. We had a double room on the 3rd floor, which had a lovely balcony to sit out and chill on. Breakfast included was excellent, good options and big to get the day started. We'll stay here again when back in HCMC.

              Hôtel très bien situé, dans le district 1, près du quartier touristique mais au calme. Peu de chambres, confortables, très propres, bien équipées, la plupart avec balcon. L'accueil est excellent, le personnel au petits soins avec les clients. Et je me régale avec le petit déjeuner vietnamien. Je reviendrai très vite.

              登記入住的時候,櫃檯找很久都沒找到資料,本來還要我們多付一次錢,員工訓練有待加強,房間整潔度不錯,有附早餐,但是也是我們自己再跟他確認,不然原本不給我們...早上在一樓吃飯還看到老鼠...四人房滿ok的,但是熱水很難開,房間沒有衛生紙,要自備。

              쿼드러플룸에 묵었습니다. 여행자거리에서는 조금 떨어져 있습니다. 저녁 9시가 지나면 골목에 있는 대문을 열고 들어가야 합니다. 자물쇠가 뻑뻑해서 애를 먹었습니다. 전체적으로 시설은 좀 낡았습니다. 아침식사는 주인분이 직접 해주시는데 맛이 괜찮았습니다. 다만 메뉴는 선택할 수 없는듯 합니다ㅎㅎ 알아서 해주십니다ㅎㅎ화장실이 약간 불편했는데 온수기 용량이 작고 오래되어서 수압이 약하고 온도조절이 어려웠습니다. (갑자기 뜨거웠다 차가웠다...하는)
