At Backpacking Club Hostel (previously Yellow House) we aim to provide that 'home away from home' feeling that can be hard to find in other hostels or guesthouses.

Utilising our well-sized property we can easily accommodate everyone from single backpackers to large groups. The rooms are well equipped with air-con, security lockers, hot water, TV and toilet. Our homely private rooms have laminate flooring and are very comfortable; the variety of dorms make it easy for lone backpackers to meet other like-minded travellers. Free wifi is available throughout the building. There are also computer terminals to use free of charge and there is complimentary coffee and orange juice all day. In the evenings we put on a buffet and free maps and information are available at the check-in desk.

Nearby are many sight seeing attractions; markets, museums, shopping centres and restaurants. We are merely a two minute walk to the Saigon City Park (23 September Park) which is a great place to participate in local sports and maybe even talk to young students who are looking to practice their English. Museums are in abundance around the area- with the controversial War Remnants Museum only 10 minutes away. Located just off Pham Nga Lao St, we are in the heart of the Ho Chi Minh's eating, shopping and dining district. The streets are bustling with cars, motos and people, but being positioned 20m down a side street gives the hostel an air of relaxation and calm. A great place to chill, a great base to explore and an even better spot to meet people.

Google maps does not show the side street, but shows us just off the main road, so please download/print our ,photo map,from the the following link for detailed instructions on how to find us:

While most party-hard backpackers in Europe stick to the big cities like Paris, London and Barcelona, you might end up cutting your nights (or even your trip) short. These cities come at a cost and just one cocktail can run upwards of $15. Luckily there are so many other beautiful cities around Europe which offer an exciting nightlife at half or even a third of the cost.
