Right in the centre of the backpacker quarter.

Friendly, clean, welcoming
I enjoyed my stay at Koniko. The people were really lovely and, if you want to be slap bang in the middle of the nightlife, there's nowhere better. If I stay in HCMC, I might go for District 3 instead, purely because there's a great deal of bag snatching going in around the backpacker area, so it's best to avoid taking a bag. It is noisy, but I knew it would be, and it was nothing some earplugs couldn't sort out. If you want to party, it's great, but otherwise, probably better to find a different base. The hotel itself was very good value for money and the room was really spacious.

In the heart of Pham Ngu Lao

Clean, great staff
Honestly we were impressed by how clean the hostel is. It doesn't have a lift though, so if your bags are heavy and you're in the dorms (all the way on the 6th floor or so), good luck. Not the safest area but if you want to be in the heart of the backpacker's district, this is it.

Friendly hotel on in PNL busy area

Clean room, reasonable breakfast, on Bui Vien busy street
Right next to busy Bui Vien Street with many street bars with plastic chairs. Very convenient to walk around Ho Chi Minh city. Be warned music next door is often very loud to early hours of morning- bring your ear plugs. Good choice if you want to see Saigon nightlife.

very value hostel

Cheap value and clean
it's a nice hostel. it's value for money that I spend. Because it's a hostel, so my room has 10 beds. That's my bad luck, my roommate is noisy and dirty.
