This is a true gem! It's just around the corner from bar street and walking distance to every major historical/tourist attraction. The rooms are cozy and priced accordingly. The staff takes action and they are caring. They went above and beyond to help me when I lost my room card and gave me useful advice. I was able to book...

I stayed at the Galaxy Hotel and Capsule with my family of 5, which in retrospect was not the best idea. However, it is probably a perfect location for those traveling alone or as a couple on a budget. The staff are great, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The price was more than fair and the wifi was...

When we arrived early in the morning our rooms weren't ready. So we had to wait. In other hotels we stayed at, some drinks or food were offered when we had to wait, that wasn't the case here. We had a private room with two twin beds. The room was pretty small, but clean. The bathroom was kind of big...

Great value for money and very comfortable stay. All facilities are clean and staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating. We booked for 1 night and ended up staying three. Rooms are not particularly large but with its ideal location providing so much to do you don't need to spend much time there. The only downside is the alleyway to access...

Honestly have never been treated with such disregard and rudeness in our lives before let alone by hotel staff. My sister was unfortunate enough to have her bag cut off her by a motorbike speeding by. We returned to the hostel shaken and told the staff what had happened. Their immediate response was not of concern or care but to...

Stayed here for almost 3 weeks during my stay in Saigon. I stayed in both private rooms as well as the capsules. The rooms were clean and spacious. They have one room with about 16 capsules. Some are horizontal against the wall and some go deeper which gives you more privacy. Each capsule has it's own power outlet and light...

I stayed here for 4 nights in the dorm room. It's a nice hotel, the bedroom and the bathroom were clean, the staffs were so helpful. Small thing that needs to be improved is probably the variation of breakfast menu.

The location of this hostel is probably the most attractive attribute of Galaxy. It's location is within walking distance of parks, good restaurants, travel agencies, and supposedly the most popular backpacker street in Ho Chi Minh. I booked with galaxy through HostelWorld, and they actually didn't have a room for me once I arrived (I arrived at 4am local time...

Very nice and clean hotel. Our room was really small but if you need just sleep one night it´s great! Also the location is great. The only bad thing was the noise during the night because of returning of many young people ( of course, its still a hostel in a backpacker area). We had a small always opened window...

The location of this hotel is great! Down a little ally way just off the Main Street for backpackers. The hotel itself is clean and tidy. The rooms and reception area and stairs are kept very organised and neat. The toilets and showers could do with a little bit of a clean but they are just about up to standard....
