      The best hotel in Ho Chi Minh with very good price!”

      I've stayed there first for almost a week after got my feets injuried, and it was perfect place to rest! Comfortable beds, a lot of privacy, even in dormitory. A lot of space for you, your belongings and so on. Dormitory is on the rooftop with nice chilled place where you can chill or eat. Free breakfast is okay, nothing unusual, you can choose from eggs in diffrent forms or noodles plus free tea/cofee. It is not the place if you are looking to meet anyone or party, everybody here got a lot of privacy and u will barely see someone else. Price is very good (agoda usually give deals about 112k with breakfast, at the desk price is 120k without breakfast, 140k with breakfast which still is very good money for value of stay. I came back here once again now for couple of days, becouse this place is just perfect! And of course its located on Bui Vien street, so u can party if you want. There is some noises at night u might hear from bed, but its still very quiet. Highly recommend!

      I have stayed there for 2 nights and really enjoy it. The room is very clean and comfortable, especially the mattress. Located in an sideway of the most lively street of this city, but our room is incredibly silent although bars outside playing music all night. Breakfast is delicious, fresh and hot. Best choice for first time travelers.

      It located right in the hearth of city central, walking distance to most of main sightseeing: Ben than market, Notre Dame Cathedral, Reunion palace. We really enjoy our room, so big with a nice balcony and super clean. After a crazy night at the bar outside, we come back and have a deep sleep until 10am. So sad to leave this place, hope we can come back.

      Excellent Dorm”

      I felt lucky when checked in. My Dorm had only 3 persons so I can choose a low level bed and a lot of space. The only problem is it on the 4th floor with no elevator but you can have a lovely terrace and a big balcony in the room. I will come back for sure.

      5 stars for everything !”

      The Hotel was in quiet alley, stay away from the Bui vien crazy street. We really enjoyed the bars on the main street but we still want to have a deep sleep. Yes, this Hotel with a super comfy mattress can gave us. Nothing negative things to tell, simply give 5 stars for its services.
