The room we were staying in had no windows and was dark and damp. The sheets were clean and the bathroom was ok so we decided for 2 nights it would be ok. On the second day we found 2 mice running around the room when we returned. Immediately packed up our stuff and complained to the manager. He gave... More

we arrived to HCMC very early in the morning, with no place to stayed, so we just took the first place that was open. Big mistake. First of all, the room looks very filthy, our sheets, towels and pillows looked dirty and not fresh, the rooms has a weird smell (urine maybe?), and no window, no air-con... The ventilation was...

This budget hostel has big rooms with two big beds and breakfast for 16 dollars. Problems start at the night when it becomes really loud from the club directly next to the hostel and a big noise from the street- it's almost like the windows are open. We are a young couple which like to party, but this was just... More

We had a very positive experience at Kim's Hostel. They were very welcoming, cooked a mean breakfast (omelet, fruit, tea), have a book exchange and included free laundry (and wifi). We paid $12 for a double room with air con. It's above a great burger restaurant and their food was extraordinary and at a fair price - especially the falafel... More

Excellent budget hostel. Cost: $US20 for 2 people per night. Includes breakfast, laundry, wifi. Staff are helpful and friendly. Able to book onward travel and budget accommodation. Room is clean and tidy. Best burgers in Ho Chi Minh City at low prices. Highly recommended.

Pretty damn good place for the price, alongside free laundry and friendly staff in the middle of the backpacker area. The breakfast is somewhat lacking, but is prompt. The shower is in an unusual place but who really showers when they're backpacking anyway?

I was here for a couple of days and the host and all the staff were very good. The dorms were very good, sometimes the ventilation wasn't good but come on, it's the weather of Saigon! I would recommend this place, fair price, good, good location and friendly! Seba

$5 per night in an air-con dorm of four clean beds including breakfast and hot showers, is a pretty good deal. The bathrooms are wierd but functional. Each room has a computer too. It's a great location. Also they had several cats living there, which I liked because I like cats and also it made it feel like a home.... More
