  • There isn't much space neither in the room or to hang out..everything is just too small. But the location is good, I did everything on foot. Just be careful when you take a taxi in the airport, its really far and they might try to charge you more than it should be. I would recommend to arrange previously with the hostel to send someone to pick you up, to make sure that you will pay the correct amount.

  • I'm lucky for reservation a room for two beds, but I can stay alone for whole room. For what I paid and getting one room, there is definitely unbelievable. But the room soundproofing is not good. I could hear the people walking on the stairs at midnight and early morning. They had served a simple breakfast for each guest and the staff is nice, but you cannot expect they are very passion and helpful.

  • Arrived in Saigon ridiculously late and the alley the hostel was located in was a bit shady. However, I think any alley in the area would be shady at 330 am. A sign off the main street could be a good idea. Room was small but more than enough for me. Clean. Air conditioned. Staff was super helpful, especially a young woman named Fung? She was super friendly, helped me book a bus ticket, and answered any questions I had. Good location. Walked everywhere. Don't have anything negative to say.

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
