              Quiet room, Comfy bed, lovely Breakfast + Coffee, Tours can be arranged”

              Room - In just a 5 minute walk, you are basically IN the party street (Bui Vien St.). Loud and lively outside in contrast with our room which was surprisingly quiet. For a 5-foot Asian girl, beds are pretty well-fit for me to stretch my limbs the moment I wake up. Really comfy bed with a curtain, for privacy of course! Staff - can book tours for you. Pay-later can be arranged. 1-day tour was well worth it! Super friendly staff. They allowed me to offer the 4 oranges I bought in Thailand in their mini-shrine. :)) Food & Beverage - Complimentary breakfast and (1) coffee of your choice (hot/cold) on a daily. The friendly auntie that made my breakfast, I love her to bits. She made me eat twice when I was sooo hungry! She made me the most delicious coffee I've ever tasted in my entire life. Don't even get me started on the breakfast area. Especially in the morning, it's like heaven on Earth! Cleanliness - bathrooms are super clean and by my standards, spacious enough.

              Home Away from Home Hostel”

              My sisters during their solo travel have stayed here and so when it was my turn to visit HCMC, I also stayed in the same hostel. The stories I got from my sisters were the same. The receptionists were friendly, kind, accommodating and very concern. Every morning before leaving, they always reminded me to keep my valuable things. Also, they would asked me everytime I'm back at the hostel if how was my day. Really a home away from home. The bed was very comfortable. The restroom in the female dorm was clean. The wifi works perfectly. The breakfast is superb! I love how it was being prepared by their cooked freshly every morning, even though it's just a simple breakfast it made me full all the time! You'll surely love this place!

              Very affordable and nice!”

              It's not located in the main street but you can find it easily if you follow Google Maps. I stayed on the sixth floor (the receptionist helped me to bring my luggage upstairs!). The 4-bed shared room is pretty nice actually! You can use the locker under the bed. You can put A LOT of your stuff next to your bed. But my favorite highlight is the breakfast (included in your booking!). It also has a very clean bathroom with hot shower -- they also prepare towel for you! It's a steal to stay at such a good place! Definitely will stay here again if I visit HCMC!

              Worth Every Penny!”

              This is a really cozy place! Bui Vien walking street is just right outside yet magically, you won't hear any of its noise when you're inside the hostel! The staff here are amazing! Greaaaaat breakfast too! Their staff cooks it for you and though they don't speak much English, they are so kind and helpful! Toilet and shower are all good and kept clean, beds are comfy and there are lockers for your stuff. I loved my stay here. Would definitely book here again when I go back to Saigon.

              Good place to stay”

              Stayed for 3 nights at this place and I personally never had a bad experience. I had a late check in around 3am and Long, one of the staff, cheerfully welcomed me to the place. Food was prepared in the morning by a charming elderly woman and coffee was good. Roommates were superb too so never had a dull moment when I'm at the place.

              Excellent”

              This hostel was great, for travelers who go around early and go home late at night, this place is safe. Even at late night the area is still awake, because it is located in Bui Vien, a night street wherein restaurants are open almost 24 hours. The hostel was clean, and good enough. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The facilities are excellent. Free breakfast is a plus, you can choose anything from their menu and a friendly staff will cook and prepare it for you. I took the mixed dormitory, and I can say everyone was so disciplined and follow the house rules.
