    I stayed here for 2 weeks straight”

    You can't beat GoCo's price. Really affordable and great staff. Once they repair the curtains and improve their breakfast I will say they are 10/10. Currently they are very close to perfect but a few small improvements are needed. Pros Free beer 6-8pm Washroom has shower seperate from toilet (only in 8 person dorm) This means your feet don't get wet everytime you use the bathroom.

    Good hostel”

    Location - only 10 mins to main backpacker area. So quiet area and can get decent sleep as there are curtains. ( Repair needed as some bed curtains are coming off the track) Other guests - mostly Vietnamese and Chinese meaning it's a bit hard to meet people who speak English but this is nice if you want to be antisocial. Free beer offered between 6-8 Breakfast is only toast, jam, coffee and tea

    Decent value”

    This hostel has amazing staff. Ming in particular is amazing and super helpful. The hostel needs the bed curtains to be repaired as many are in disrepair and half falling off. All in all its decent value for the price. Some of the staff doesn't speak the best English but this is the norm in Vietnam. Breakfast wise please note they serve only coffee, tea with some white bread and 3 jams. Appreciate it being free but I wouldn't really call it breakfast. Location wise it's a 10 minute walk from where most backpackers stay. This means for the most part it's quiter which is nice but you'll have to walk farther if you want to hangout in the main area. Additionally, this means it's a bit harder to meet other backpackers as many people staying at this hotel are Vietnamese travelers and Chinese travelors who don't speak any English.

    Decent price and clean”

    Positives: Very clean and staff is really nice. Definitely a fair price for with you get and the bed curtains allow you privacy. Everyone gets a free 450ml beer between 6-8pm Negatives: They need more of a "kitchen" then just a microwave. A stove top burner and some pots and pans is a kitchen. Also, they don't serve breakfast. It's jam, margarine and bread, coffee and tea . It's misleading to say this is breakfast. Offer some protein. Like boiled eggs, peanut butter etc Beer is great but free water bottle refills would be really nice

    Super friendly staff ”

    The hostel was a bit hard to find for the taxi driver as it's in a small alley, but it's not really off the main street. Very comfortable beds, clean room, shampoo , toothbrush, towels provided. The staff is super friendly. I checked out but my bus was at night and they let me hang out at the hostel offering new towels if I wanted to take a shower before I leave for free. Location is great. Walking distance to the main tourist street but far enough to avoid the noise and craziness. Highly recommend place!

    Quiet place with a kitchen in city centre”

    I chose this hostel because of central location, they have a kitchen you can use, breakfast (dont expect too much only toast and jam and instant coffee), its quiet and not crowded. Its not the best place to mingle and meet people because there is only a small common area. If youre looking for a quiet space centrally located for couple days its a very good choice. They offer free beer every evening. Big plus for the staff for letting me borrow a helmet!

    although the location is not near to the central , but take a grab only cost 20k dong , and nearby got few restaurant serve with nice food, and all the price is not tourist price! Moreover, at the morning , you can experience the local life by visiting the street nearby to this hostel!

    Rooms are so dark and hot”

    I decided to test out this hostel for a night because it is part of the same company as Luci hostel. It is what you pay for a bed, secure and quiet. But there were a few things that made me want to leave the first hour in. - Too hot, the room was so small that the fans were ineffective - Soo dark, you couldn't see anything in the room, even their bed light was dismal. 4th Floor, the dorm room is on the 4th floor so you have to climb flights if stairs to get up there. - hot water didn't work. The room was clean, , beds comfortable. I've gone back to their other hostel Luci house, much better there.

    It was my first time in Saigon and it was very overwhelming (the motorbikes, man!) but the staff at the hotel were exceptionally helpful and accommodating. They were very pleasant to talk to and can converse in English. Location is a bit far from the central area but it was okay because I prefer quiet evenings. Also, free beers every 6 to 8pm 👍
