This is my 3rd stay in this hostel and i must say the staff and management always have been very friendly and helpful. Make you feel part of their family. The location is fantastic not too noisy, rooms are very clean and are maintained. Highly recommended for a short stay or long you will still get great service.

After looking more there was a five foot black mold stain behind the wallpaper. Making us cough a lot. Then starting from 10pm to 2 am there...

Huong, the lady who works there throughout the day is lovely but so are all the staff. Rooms have 2 showers in and the best are very...

The dorm rooms were ok and had nice big lockers to store our stuff, but they were right above a large party street and you'll need ear plugs and an eyemask...

Huong, the manager, was so accommodating, I arrived HCMC late without a reservation and she gave me a bunk in the dorm room 5th floor. It is very clean, no shoes inside, and 2 powerful A/C units and 2 bathrooms. In the morning, I enjoyed coffee and breakfast on the rooftop terrace. Huong speaks English fluently and is so helpful...
