      Nice location within walking distance to everything. The staff was nice and breakfast was good. My only complaint is that my bed in the 4 Female dorm (which is quite small) was next to the window which was super bright because there was no curtain. And the doors are loud and squeaky which wakes you up whenever someone goes in or out. Simple fixes that would make a much nicer stay! Overall good!

      Wouldn’t recommend staying here if you’re traveling with suitcase because the stairs are steep and narrow so I think it will be hard to carry a suitcase to your room. But the bed and bathroom was nice and clean, location was strategic, only 3 mins walk to/from the airport bus stop (which was a plus to me). They also offer you breakfast and free one beer on happy hour. The staffs are very friendly and accomodate all your needs. I had a good sleep here👍🏽

      We booked a double room with a shared bathroom, and we would highly recommend it to other travellers! The hostel and the room looked exactly as it was shown on their Agoda page. There were also towels, a hair dryer, and a refrigerator in the room. The facilities were also good, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. This is truly worth every cent you pay for.

      Great stay and amazing location. Good breakfast served in the morning. It's a party street so at night you can hear people partying. Although I didn't have an amazing trip in Ho Chin Minh due to food poisoning. I would like to compliment the hostel staff. I have food poisoning and require medical attention and the staff immediately offer help and book a cab for me to go to the nearby medical centre. He even called to check if it is open 24hrs. Thank you very much for your help.

      Actually the location was good, but a little bit hard to find. But after you find this, you will like the location. This is a small hostel. This hostel had one toilet for each floor (for one room), it was too little.

      Brilliant location to be in the middle of things. Yet with ear plugs you could get a top night's sleep. Comfiest bed I've had in a long time - a memory foam style mattress. Not bad for such a cheap place.

      The stuff is great. They are always there to answer your questions. The breakfast is an egg with toast - it is ok! You can fill up your water bottle for 5000 VDN so it's really cheap. The 10 Dorm is ok. A big locker under the bed but not so much space. Unfortunately the rooftop is closed in the rainy season until December. There is a small space with a table next to the reception. It's really quiet although it is near the Backpacker Street and a lot of sightseeing spots.
