A small hostel tucked down a dark alley just off backpacker st in Ho Chi Minh. Helpful, friendly staff and free beer every night meant crowd for socialising. The bathrooms in the double rooms were nice however the water cut off for about 18 hours so we couldn't shower, which was made worse by having the airport lose our luggage...

This place has a great atmosphere, not too loud, good amenities (wifi and power sockets) which exceeds many '5*' places. Perfect for solo travellers as their free beer evenings gets people together really fast. Great location and staff. Highly recommended!

This hostel is perfect for spending a couple of nights in Ho Chi Ming. It is close to backpackers street, but on a quiet small street. Also very close to bus station where you can get bus to airport for 20.000 dongs. The hostel setup makes it easy to meet people and have some beers during happy hour...but isn't noisy...

Rooms are nice and well kept, breakfast is great and filling. Atmosphere is chilled and relaxed at all times. Perfect location and easily walkable to markets and war museum etc. Games in the common area is a nice touch also.

Good hostel in the city . 2 free beers on an evening brings everyone done. Adequately located in the backpacker area. Staff are helpful and on 24 hours. Only issue is that there's no lift. So if your room is on the 5th floor then you've gotta be fit !

I only stayed here two nights, but I LOVED it-- great location, super clean, great AC, free beers at night, delicious free breakfast (have the banana pancakes!), and the staff was SO kind and accommodating. They made everyone feel like they were at home; we were all so happy. Highly recommended!

This was the first hostel I took in Ho-Chi-Minh-City. The manager was talkative in best ways, told me what I needed to know and answered my questions patiently and professionally. The rooms are big, almost huge, the bathrooms comfortable and big as well. Even the lobby is pretty huge, gives you a lot of space to hang out, to search...

While not the most flash hostel, it is of very good value. The staff are friendly and very accommodating. The dorms were as expected with decent beds and amenities. Bathrooms were clean but the water pressure for the shower was inconsistent. However, the staff assured us that it was only temporary and they were right. The breakfast is good and...

Stayed for 4 nights in August 2016 Hotel was easy to find from the airport (taxi) Friendly and very helpful staff, a very nice homely feeling. Breakfast was cooked fresh daily and always enjoyable. The rooms were functional with good wash room facilities.
