  • Really helpful staff, they couldn't be nicer! Be sure to ask for the free drink tokens in their 'sister hostel', beers on a rooftop bar are a great way to start off Ho Chi Minh. We also did a tour organised by the hostel, a day to the Mekong delta, and really enjoyed that too. Would definitely recommend! Clean, comfortable, within walking distance of everything we wanted.

  • Good location being about 1km from the major sights in the city. Facilities and a little old, but acceptable. Staff has good English skills and are helpful and friendly.

  • Only a few complains--felt the hostel was a bit pricy, no elevator and a small hang out space. But if you do find yourself booking here, there is a great street down the alley way where a ton of backpackers/locals all sit and drink 50 cent beers on the sidewalk. The family that runs the place is nice and they'll help you book day trips out of the city and maybe teach you a bit of vietnamese.

  • The staff were so friendly and offered to help my brother while he was feeling ill. They made up some ginger tea and brought it to the room. Made us feel and at home.

  • A really nice, clean little hostel right in the middle of the backpacker area, and (just about!) walking distance to all the sights - ok, 30 minutes maybe, but it's a super interesting walk! Staff are really really helpful, they can't do enough to help!, and the free breakfast (if you are awake early enough!) is light and nice. The shower/toilet combo surprised me - but the loo roll is protected from getting wet!! Only downside was the noisy air con and fan - but earplugs fixed that!

  • This was our second stay - we loved it so much we came back! The family is so helpful and friendly, the location is perfect, the rooms are always clean, and the free coffee/water is a nice touch. This time they had free breakfast with several options (our first visit must have been during low season). Thank you, we hope to see you again someday!

  • The staff are very nice and helpful. The hostel located in the alley which is not easy to find. I wish there are elevator. I lived in a dormitory on 4th Floor, it is a bit tired for me to go up an down.
