Not a bad place for backpakers

The hotel provide internet, a decent breakfast and allow us to use their facilities after checked out.
The place was decent for backpackers. The room provided was clean and the breakfast was good. The only problem was that there's no lift and the laundry service. When we sent our laundry for cleaning we were scammed. The laundry cost 35000vnd for 1kg. We brought a luggage scale with us, so we weighted our laundry before we sent it for cleaning and it was exactly 2 kilos. Then when it was cleaned and ready for pick up, we were told that our laundry weighted 4 kilos. We told the receptionist that we weighted it before and it was only 2kg, and he said it was not him who weighted the laundry, it was the cleaning company. However we were too tired of quarrelling, so we let it slide, and pay double the amount that the we were suppose to pay. But when we get in our room we weighted the laundry bag again to reconfirm the reading, and yes it was still 2 kg. So be mindful if you want to wash your clothes, make sure you know and notified the receptionist the weight of your laundry.

The Uber driver just dropped me somewhere in Pham Ngu Lao area and I didnt know where am I in the middle of the night. Only to find out that the hotel is located inside the alley , somewhere in the market. Quiet far from the busy touristy area of Duong De Tham. Their concierge is not really 24 hours because the guy was sleeping when I arrived but the rooms is comfortable and the bathroom is spacious. They provide their own locker. Make sure to bring your own padlock and towel.

Good location and great hostel

The hostel is well-located in District 1 & is right next to the market.
My stay was really good and I met some wonderful fellow travellers. The moment you get out of the hostel I was bang in the heart of a bustling market and great street food. Totally loved my stay!

one of the best!

staffs are very friendly, clean bedsheets, friendly foreigners
Value for money! I like the good vibes among the foreigners every morning we sit down together for breakfast where everyone share abit of themselves. Everything about the hostel is good. Breakfast is simple but its considered decent for the price you pay.

Good backpacker hostel

Close proximity to district 1
Had a good stay at this hostel. Everything was fine and okay. Nothing too fancy. But there were cockroaches in my room.

friendly staff at Sai Gon backpackers hostel

it is near the shopping area, the hostel is clean and the staff are friendly
we shop around the city at different times of the day and it is easy to go back to the hostel to deposit our things because it is near the shopping area. They told us that the check in time is after 12 noon and not after 10am as stated in the info of Agoda. The room is cozy and clean with wifi connectivity.

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!
