Staffs are very friendly and helpful, the lady in the morning always seemed to be in a bad mood, but helpful nevertheless. Keep up the good...

It was amazing to stay here. I stayed in a single room. It was very cheap. The location is great. It's very close to Bui Vien Road which is nice place for dinner. It's also very easy to visit the interesting places from the hostel by walking. Staffs was great and helpful. I highly recommended you to stay here.
