I stayed here for 4 nights in a single room on the 3rd floor. Room is very small and so cramped up. With 2-3 dollars more you could get bigger room in the same/even better loc (I stayed at 3 hotels before staying here. All around 2-3 bucks more expensive but a lot better.) The aircon was leaking so badly I had to turn it on and off to stop the leaking. The hostel is located in a small alley which leads to Bui Vien on the right and Pham Ngu Lao on the left. It's quite a hassle to go to the main road since the alley is so small and there are quite many bikes taking this road as a shortcut. When it's raining, it's even worse experience. The free breakfast has 2 options: bread (with various toppings) and noodles (with egg or veggies and sausage). The bread is still understandable (bahn mi bread with butter and fruit jam/egg/cheese), but the noodles... They only put an instant noodle and pour hot water on it and serve it to you (so... what???). Definitely not what I expected. The girls there are amazing, always very helpful. But the night staff, the guy one, wasn't very friendly and always seem like he's disinterested. One thing that annoyed me tho, they rushed me on my check-out time. They knocked on my door at 11:50 AM and it's fine. But then on around 12:05 PM they did it again. I've been to so many hotels during my travel and I always check out late, and that never happened. So that's annoying. The only thing that I appreciate about this place is the girls and the free-flow tea/coffee/bananas 24/7. Loc not so much—most budget accommodations are located in this area so it's not a plus.

Great staff, good aircon,good wifi .. Staff was very helpful and friendly. This is a good spot - right at pham ngu lao and away from the party scene. Good for a quiet stay! I would recommend this to anyone.

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

Stayed: August 2017, travelled with friends

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)
