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.

Worth of the money, just next to local market

It's cheap, around 3usd per night u get free breakfast, air conditional, hot water bath!
They are doing renovation while our stay where the backpacker was really messy and dusty! But it's acceptable because with this little money we get a personal bathroom with hot water bath, cooling air conditional and best thing the free breakfast that comes with variant choices. Location was suit for those who love to drink at night (the backstreet was a great place for beer), and also those who love experiencing local market, the morning market was 2 minutes away and it has lots of yummy local food selling at a very cheap price.

Lovely, they were redecorating when we were there and very apologetic but it caused no problems. Staff very helpful and lovely, with taxis, sleeper buses trips. Definitely recommend it

Good value for the money

Location, clean, cost
We only stayed one night. It's mostly a dorm room hostel, but they allowed us to buy out a 4 bed room for our family of 5. For the money, this place was fine. The staff was nice and friendly. I liked that they have Lonely Planet guide books for various SE Asian countries in the lobby that aren't out of date.
