We spent 4 nights here. We were placed at the 5th floor of the hostel and we had to take the stairs, but sad to say that no staff helped with our heavy baggage. The place is below average including the fact that it is located in an alley near the market area, but like I said the price is...

We just stayed here for 3 nights, we were dropped off the sleeper bus at Hanh Cafe and to our delight it was only a two minute walk away, its tucked in an Alleyway next to a market but there is a big sign labelling the hotels in the alleyway at the entrance. The hotel is literally 2 minute walk...

Not easy to find in a small side alley, not in the location shown. Very close to the long distance bus drop-off point. There is a bustling market during the day just out of the alley. The room was ok but not cleaned entirely, fridge area was filthy. TV did not work. Bathroom wasn't clean, either. All in all a...

The place very near from the Bus terminal, Not quite near to Ben Thanh market etc And it takes around 20 minutes to Bui Vien Street, especially if you are slow walker The building is also a home for the owner - I guess. The receptionist is quite young boy, who is very friendly, but not his mom. The receptions...

The staff here are incredibly helpful, ready to help with cheap taxis, local advice and one even offered to let me use his laptop when my phone broke and I couldn't get online. (There is wifi on every floor so that's not an issue!) Obviously it's a cheap hostel and you do get what you pay for. The beds were...

The location of this hostel is really good. Peaceful but just a few minutes walk to Bui Vien Steet (The Bar Street) and above all, staffs here are really nice, helpful and they smile all the time. My girlfriend and I highly recommend this hostel.

Stayed here for two while in hcmc. The place was really cheap and the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. Room had air conditioning. Cable tv with english speaking channels. And is within walking distance of all the major sights. Highly recommended for the budget traveller.
