Good location. Helpful staff. Comfy bed.
The beds are exceptionally squeaky. I was on a top bunk but even the bottoms were really squeaky. The rooms are modern, although there is not too much room inside them with the 8 beds, so you sleep quite close to your neighbours. Great location, in middle of district 1 and walking distance to everything. Staff friendly, particularly the smiley girl on reception. Breakfast not a highlight, particularly avoid the noodles. But its free so who's complaining? I would stay here again!

This place is nice cos the location is right in middle of Backpacker district But it was hard to find as the location is inside an alley near the market

Good location, cleanliness, friendly staff
I ended up staying at both Pham Ngu Lao and Bui Vien branch because there was a mistake with my booking - I cancelled my initial dorm booking and upgraded to a private double room, but the manager cancelled both my bookings instead. Both rooms are clean and staff are friendly but Pham Ngu Lao is more spacious and definitely more comfortable bed! The bed in Bui Vien is quite hard. If you're staying at Pham Ngu Lao, request for a higher floor. I was on the first floor and you get a fair bit of noise from the kitchen which is just right downstairs. Other than that, overall is a good stay.

Staff is Great

Cheap. Good staff. Location.
It was good. Beds looks new and the bathroom is clean. I like how they painted informational things about Ho Chi Minh around the hostel. The staff, My, is very accommodating. The hostel doesn't have a mailing service but she said she can get our postcards mailed herself when she goes off from work. The hostel is near a small market so there are a lot of food stalls near it.

Nice Hostel

Value for money, helpful staff, free breakfast,
We booked a room for 6 people. It was in the 6th floor, no elevator though. Room was nice with 3 double decks and lockers to store your things. It would be additional improvement if the room has at least table or additional rug since shoes/slippers were not allowed inside the house, or maybe provide some slippers to be used just inside the house. The price is cheap with daily breakfast (bread and egg or cheese, and noodles plus hot or cold drinks) Location wise, it is far from Ben Than market/saigon square around 20minutes walk but close to other establsihments like food, the local market, park etc.

Good value for money, location and clean

- free breakfast, good location, big and clean room
We had a great stay in this hostel. Its near the city center. 15mins walk to behn tahn market 20min walk to city hall. Its near the bui vien st where all the sidestreet drinking and clubbong happens. Very nice hostel and very cheap too. Very helpful staff, they let us stay at the hotel lobby even we're checked out already. We even watched a movie, play billards and they let us use the shower. Well recomended for backpackers.
