    What's good of an hostel if I can't make hot water for coffee?I'd been staying in this hostel quite often for my business/leisure trips in Saigon. It's a basic, simple, and quiet hostel, which is perfect for me. There's a rooftop eating area with a refrigerator and kettle. However, they put the kettle electric base away after breakfast hour, which is 10am. For my work I don't get up that early therefore I have to ask the staffs to borrow the kettle base everyday so that I can make my coffee. It's a bit inconvenient but everyone was kind enough to let me use the kettle "After Hour". But today (Oct 30) they wanna change the policy and kettle use is no longer allowed "After Hour". Right or wrong I'm not here to judge. But certainly I will have to move to another hostel because I can't even have hot water to make my coffee. >.<

    When my friend and I were checking in, we were told that our booking was registered as cancelled in their system (it wasn't on my end when I checked on Agoda) and they said our booking was for their other affiliated hostel called Alleyway Home. Although we had no issues with the other hostel, we felt a little unjustified as the overall facilities and vibe of the were rather different from what we had booked and paid for. Since we were only staying for a night, we didn't pursue the issue further. Just a heads up to future fellow travellers.

    Value for money. ”

    I had quite an enjoyable stay here, the hostel itself is clean and the facilities are good. It’s not a very social hostel so if you’re looking to meet new people I wouldn’t suggest staying here. However it was nice and peaceful so if you’re looking for more of a chilled hostel I would recommend. I know I’m stating the obvious but the location being in an alleyway is a little scary specially at night time, being a solo female traveller I didn’t feel too safe walking back late at night on my own specially because it’s a little bit out of the way and not to mention the rats running around your feet as you’re walking through the alleyway wasn’t too pleasant. you definitely get what you pay for so all in all a pleasant/ish stay.

    I would recommend this hostel to every backpackers who are visiting Ho Chi Minh. Very well situated, the staff is very friendly and always available to help you. The hostel is always clean and the beds very comfortable. Alleyway is situated in a little street so you don’t have the big noise of the city even if you are close to everything. The only negative point would be the breakfast which is very basic, but it’s a small detail as you can have free coffee and tea all day and you can enjoy a good breakfast in lots of places around.

    The place was much smaller than what I assumed from the pictures. Very close to the 23/9 Bus station but the walk there may be a bit intimidating at night since the street is a bit isolated and often empty- you get the feeling that you might get mugged anytime. The hotel is not immediately visible unless you walk thru Luong Huu, it is located in one of the inner streets. The staff were the best part about this hostel although the receptionist didn't warn me that Binh Tay market was being renovated so I went there for nothing. Breakfast was simple but filling enough to start you off each day. It was great they had hot water and provided towels. I would recommend this place but I have a feeling you could get other hostels nearer the main areas worth visiting at the same price.

(In the bathroom, there are not shampoo, bodywash or soap. so you need to prepare that.) With the staff's help, I can visit Tan Lap Mangrove forest. Without their information service, maybe I could not go there. Thank you so much.
