This hostel is everything a backpacking hostel should be in my opinion, with a nice blend of a good social side with clean rooms and comfy beds! The bar crawl they do every night is great for socialising and making friends. The dorm rooms may get a little loud if you in encounter some larger parties, but nothing you wouldn't...

Ended up staying here longer than I planned. The room was clean and comfortable. I was on the third floor which was quiet even at night. Reception was very helpful. The bar crawl is essentially just many hours of drinking cheaply at the hostel and then just a couple places after but it was a great way to meet people....

Excellent location, exactly what you'd expect from a backpacker's hostel. Very friendly staff, with a pub crawl every night. Rooms are clean, facilities are decent, everyone is social and it's very easy to meet people. Only bad thing is that there's not too many guides and recommendations to do around the city during the day.

GREAT hostel! The location is great and you can walk to almost everything. The staff is so sweet and helpful. The included breakfast is kind of basic but ok. You can choose between fruit or egg with bread. It is a very social place and really easy to meet new people here especially if you are up for a party.

Exactly what you'd expect from a typical backpacker hostel. They have a bar next door that has daily events/pub crawls so there's definitely a social environment to the hostel. I got absolutely no sleep due to incredibly loud and disrespectful people in the dorm. The beds also shake at the slightest touch so anytime the person above or below you...

Very sociable hostel with friendly staff - especially Jimmy. We stayed in a 10 bed dorm which was very clean and comfortable. Rooms are quiet for those who want to sleep but there is lots of activity in the bar for those who want to join. The nightly pub crawl is good fun and you get a free beer every...

Unfortunately me and my partner were unable to book with the hostel due to its full capacity but we joined in with their pub crawl and tours. We'd heard wonderful reviews about the hostel and hosts and were not disappointed. The only concern we have is the sleeper bus we booked through the hostel from Saigon- Phnom Penh which departed...

This hostel is always full booked. I thinked it's because the price is very cheap. The rooms was just normal and has 10 bunk bed, not that big also not that small. 1 room only has 1 bathroom for 10 pax, i think it just a little horrible. Breakfast is simple bread with omelet and drinks. The best part of...

Really good vibe at this hostel, perfect for backpackers both travelling alone or in a group. Super friendly and inclusive - everyone has a great time! Probably down to the friendly staff and ace location. Bars and restaurants on a strip just behind the hostel. The rooms are basic but clean. It's definitely fun over fancy but worth it!

We are located down Pham Ngu Lao Street the famous backpacker area of Ho Chi Minh City. Named after the famous general Pham Ngu Lao from the Tran Dynasty many people now say it is Saigons answer to Khaosan Road in Bangkok and is a tourist attraction itself. There are many bars, shops and restaurants where locals and tourists come to hang out, drink, eat and party.
