                Bed and pillows were clean and comfy. Lockers we huge. Toilet was clean. Room was very spacious. The room was relatively quite most of the time, except for the opening/closing of the doors when people go in and out at different timings.

                I love everything about this hostel, from the location to the lovely hosts, they spoke really good English, kind and friendly. But one thing to complain, and I highly recommend the owner to probably consider change or upgrade the bunk beds. We're 9 people and stayed in the dormitory room. The beds were really shaky, just one person tossing around in their sleep and all the beds shake. There's no proper partition in between each bed, just normal curtain, I know sleeping in dorm room has less privacy but this was too much, you can cross over to other bed easily without them realizing.

                Nice hostel that I actually came back to after trying two others. The staff is very nice and helpful, the beds are clean and you get a new towel every day if you want. There is a computer to use, and a rooftop bar. Also a mini-fridge! The bathrooms are modern but not excellent. Maybe because of the guests... The only con I guess is that the beds are a little bit unstable, and linked togheter. So if someone who sleeps far away from you do a big movement in their bed, every bed will shake. And also it would be nice if the beds where directly against the wall, so that your light won't light up the one under you's bed too. And also if you're in the top bunk you can drop things on the person under you. Thank you for making my stay in Saigon so good! :)

                The hostel is really well spotted, being closed to many monuments. The bed are comfortable we slept well but an individual bedlight was missing. You have access to an individual locker. Only 3 bathrooms (=sets of 1 toilet+1shiwer) are available per floor of 24 beds which makes difficult to keep them clean all the time...

                Location was great right in the thick of district 1, and staff were very helpful. Free tea and coffee in the morning was great, and you could fill your water bottle up with a fee lower than buying a new bottle at a mart. The room was extremely perfumed though which was very overpowering, and I was under the impression that we were going to be in a 10-bed dorm but our room was connected to another dorm of 10-beds to make one large room. There were only 3 toilets between the 20 people and it was very crowded. The bunk beds are all connected too so they all rattle if one person gets in or out. Overall, it was good for the price and location if only staying for a few nights.

                Very nice staff, very helpful also had 24 hour reception. As we arrived to airport at 9pm this was great. However I booked my airport pick through them and told me it would be $17 us as it was between a certain time. I thought that's allot of money for Vietnam. But I had not been before and hostels are normally very good. Leaving HCMC heading back to airport still within the same time frame. I ordered a cab from my new hotel and was charged $6.50 us. The restaurant food way overpriced and so is the hostle private room. The room was very noisy as over the restaurant. However they did offer to change us the next night as they said it was a noisy room. Wats app communication very easy.
