Enjoyed our time here, the staff were all friendly and I do love a good free breakfast! Stayed in 6 bed dorms and had a bathroom attached, for what we payed I can not fault the place at all. The location was central and convenient to get to lots of local attractions.

Spended my last days in Vietnam in this hostel. The staff is very friendly and takes the time to have a talk with you. The dorms are quiet and smell fresh. The beds are okay but could be a little higher as for a tall person like me it isn't possible to sit. Toilet and shower are perfect. The location...

I stayed here for 3 nights in a female dorm room. It's clean, close to main street. The receptionist is friendly and helpful. 5$/night. Some ppl complainted 'bout small room but I feel it's OK. U couldn't find another hostel at cheap price as Budget Hostel in HCM city. Highly recommended!

1. Good location. A little bit hide from main street. Very decent restaurant just outside of hostel 2. Dorm is new and modern. It was very clean. Beds are good. Take you own lock with you to close shelf with belonging, one they are giving is a joke. 3. It's very cheap 5 USD per person

The staff is very sweet and super helpful. The rooms we're nice and clean with own bathrooms. Comfortable beds with lockers for valuables. The location is great just a short walk to heaps of restaurants. It's a small quaint hostel perfect for a couple of nights stay.
