Loved this hostel”

If I am ever to go to Ho Chi Minh I will definitely stay here no doubt about it. The staff are awesome, they work so hard to keep the place clean for guests. Easy to talk to and helpful when you need them. Kudos to this team. The hostel is well designed and decorated, great location and lots of food near by. The big market is within 5min walking distance and bus from airport also drops not too far from hostel. I took this bus very cheap. A+ for Watage. Oh and there are crepes Downstairs that always make the place smell amazing. They have every flavor haha

Small but cozy”

I love this hostel and enjoyed the stayed . Staffs was friendly. I stay in single room, the room was small but good enough for one person. There's a small fridge in the room as well which is good for me to keep my drinks cold. Toilets and bathroom is clean too. I like they provides free laundry services on the top floor but you need to bring your own laundry detergent. The hostel also located in the centre of downtown which is good. You can travel to the tourist spots by walking distance. Overall I'm happy for the stayed. Definitely I will stay in this hostel again if come back.

Got a free upgrade and no cancellation fee for early check-out!”

I originally booked a 4-bed dorm, but they upgraded me to a private room for no additional cost. The bed was comfortable, showers were clean, staff is helpful, and kitchen was nice. I also decided to book a last minute flight home to USA due to coronavirus but still had two more nights at hostel. I went to check-out early and they said I only had to pay for the nights I stayed! Amazing hostel!

Location strategic! Friendly staff!”

All the staff are very helpful and friendly. All can communicate in English fluently. Upon my check in staff Irene was very smiley and helpful. She has been very considerate to switch me stay in the dorm where I had booked for the whole room for my friends who arrive a day later so that I didn’t have to move around. Rooms are pretty small but cleanliness is good. Just a bit tiring to climb to 4th floor after a whole day tour. Overall, worth for the money. The location is close to many food outlets and ben thanh market. Easily access to anywhere in the city. Walking distance to Reunification Palace and Notre- Dame Cathedral and Saigon Central Post Office.

This place is really nice! So close from everything. The bed were comfy, aircon was good we also had a TV and a mini fridge. I have to say thought our room was small. We had barely any space to put our bags on the floor so if you travelled with a lot of luggage this could be an issue. The WiFi wasn't working for us but to be fair we didn't even bother telling them so maybe it could have been fixed easily. The shower was a bit hard to deal with it was either absolutely boiling or freezing but I mean... Definitely not the end of the world. I would definitely recommend to go there we had a good time. Everything was brand new and clean.

It's good if you just want to be alone”

There's no social vibe to this place at all, so if you're backpacking, this isn't the place for you, however the facilities and building itself are really good. One thing that really confused me was there seemed to be someone living full time in my dorm, and she liked to sleep with the bathroom light on every night. I felt like an imposter, rather than a guest. You're very much on your own here, it's not a typical hostel, no help with tours/travel/laundry etc. But like I said, the facilities are new, modern and very clean.

The rooms were well laid out and the beds were very comfy and private. Like most hostels in Ho Chi Minh space is a bit limited but it didn't feel cramped or stuffy and there was room to put your luggage under your bed and even space to hang your clothes. There is a nice common room where you can make a cup of tea and sit on the balcony or watch tv. Going through Agoda makes it hard to make any changes at the front desk but they were still very helpful. Overall very clean and comfortable stay. Thank you Watage

Although they only have 1 shower and WC per floor, I got no difficulty access to it. No lift, but i got no problem with it although my room at 4th floor. Room is small but is only for taking nap.
