              Location is very convenient, right in front of the bus station. Night market and lively streets full of restaurants and bars within a short walk distance. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the hostel is clean and neat. Air-conditioner works fine (from 6pm to 9am) and the room was quiet. Breakfast included is tasty and very good.

              Super friendly and very cute rooms!”

              Very clean and beautiful paintings on the wall in the rooms and common areas. Reception was very friendly and helpful with enquiries about tours etc. Shared bathroom but essentially your own as on our floor (2nd floor) there was an 8 bed dorm room with it's own bathroom, our room (double bed only) and another bathroom we used. Stairs are quite narrow- appears to be common in Vietnam though (this was our first stop). Spent two nights and would have stayed longer. Tucked away on an alley so no street noise but very close to Walking Street etc. Breakfast was a choice of: pho, eggs (omelette) with cucumber, tomato and baguette, or toast with jam. We chose the eggs and they were lovely. Vietnamese coffee was D10,000 additional (breakfast included in room). Wifi was good, not super fast but we watched a few youtube clips with no problems.

              We checked in and it was a shared bathroom when we expected an en-suite. They moved us the following night to an upgraded room with en-suite across the road. It was a nice modern room. Lovely hot shower. Comfy bed. Overall staff were helpful. Breakfast was ok egg or pancake. We stayed an extra night. Good value for money and a good location. A little hard to find though as it’s down an alleyway.

              Good location. The women employees were friendly and always smiled. However, top bunk beds were high and safety guards were flimsy. I didn’t feel safe. Imagine falling off and cracking your head on a concrete floor. They do not wash the sheets and blankets after the previous guest checks out. They simply make the bed. Gross! Also, my laundry came back dirty.

              Check-in/check-out process was easy. Room clean and bed confortable. If each bed could have curtains it would be a plus. Unfortunatly during my stay 2 guys were very noisy during all the night and a girl found all her money stolen (from the locker) during diner time. So I felt uncomfortable and couldn't sleep at all. 1 other guy always kept thé bedroom door open. So I would recommand everyone to lock his bag with his own locker + inside the locker box.

              旅店是家族经营的,前台的小妹妹非常贴心,提前发邮件告知了机场过去的交通方式,入住后提供了很多有用的周边信息。房间和卫生间都打扫得很干净。位置也不错,胡志明消费在东南亚算很高的,但是出去巷子口有很多当地人吃的小摊。味道不错,价格也相对便宜。

              别的都不错,就是空调不是24小时的,在装修有点吵,前台服务很好
