Fabulous 8.8 From 42 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Best place for the value
Good location. Walking distant from Benh Thanh market. Located in an alley, it is isolated from the loud music at the main road. I could sleep well at the night. The breakfast was simple, but great.

Easy Stay
This was a perfect place to stay if you want to be in the heart of Bui Vien Street. Great service & a fun place to be.

Very Good 8.0
No Lift
Hostel No Lift. Stayed at the top floor (401) nice room with a small balcony. Bed is nice and firm but room not so clean. No free drinking water provided. Wifi is a little slow and the breakfast is an added value. Overall cheap and good.
yew hoon, sg2 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
While this is in the heart of the area, it needs much work. The room we booked was full of mold so they moved us to a smaller room that only had mold in the bathroom. While we really tried to enjoy the stay, there were several things that just made it not so nice - we found another hostel in a cleaner part of the area that was much nicer, newer and no mold for less money.

Fair and honest - friendly staff and clean rooms
The staff was really friendly; clean towel and bed; Air conditioner and fan inside the room. Locker available next to each bed as well. Clean toilets as well. An honest breakfast (fruits, omelet, coffee with milk). Well located in first district Totally worth the price.
