Center of the party/backpackers area, free walking tours and other events almost every day! Highly recommended to stay here, the dorms all have AC, and kitchen is equipped with everything you coud want to cook, free tea and cofee, and bananas all day.

Room Tip: Check out rooftop for nice place to sit

There is nothing good I can say about this hostel, except that the location is good. But almost all accommodation is in this area so it's not special. There was mold on the walls in my room. My bed sheets were stained, one of them looked like blood. They changed the sheets, but they still didn't look clean. The bathroom was tiny, flooded when you took a shower, and was very dirty. Do NOT give them your laundry!! not only is it overpriced they lost THREE of my items, and then acted like it was my own fault. The rest of my clothes were wrinkled and shrunken. Never had such a bad experience with laundry service. Breakfast wasn't great either. Chu Chi tour is over priced. As I said: There are many hostels in the area, choose another one

Pretty much everything you want from a hostel - Super clean, Orginsied, Free breakfast, amazing staff who really go the extra mile to help you out.. Hostel computers (such a treat for those with broken phones!) perfect wifi (on every level) Free breakfast & tea/coffee/bananas! .. Location is perfect! Loads of cheap eats RIGHT at the door as well as main pub street at the end of the ally. Couldnt ask for a more perfectly placed hostel. Also seemed to attract really respectful and nice/normal travelers . Well maintained rooms with ensuite bathrooms . Comfortable beds . Felt right at home here, (Did i mention how awesome the team is? x1000 Thanks for everything guys)

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and the staffs are very helpful and friendly. The room is clean and comfortable. The bathroom has a good size, clean, and well-maintained. I love the the shower heater is working excellently. Wifi connection is good and at the lobby, you can use their PCs for free. Good location and it's near everywhere. Will definitely come back and recommend this place.
