          Excellent location and the host. ”

          This hostel is located right behind the street where there are several travel companies and pubs gathering. It is particular convenient if you want to participate local tour or travel to other neighboring places during your stay in HCMC. This is the place that you can definitely enjoy the convenience while a bit away from the noise. Most importantly, the host is super warm and kind and welcoming. In an incident that I had a blister on one of my toe and I ask him for the band-aid. He did not only bring me a few band-aids but even wanted to put it for me. That was really a touching act. We had great time and a quality conversation together, and I therefore got to know this country a bit more from local perspective. To me, this is the most valuable thing and the best experience I had with this stay! Thank you once again Jack!

          Con.: Shower water temperature not stable, very low water pressure, some cooking smell from the restaurant next door, need to bring ear plug if you concern about noise as can hear very clearly when other guest walking up/downstairs and closing doors. Rooms definitely need touch up. Pro.: Very good location, everything you need within walking distance. Very affordable price, super friendly staffs, giving a lot of advise and ideas. Special thanks to Cody and Hieu, they are really friendly and authentic.

          I travel a lot and have never felt better taken care of than the staff at this hotel. Period. Jack and the others (I wish I had all their names) showed a friendliness and attention to detail that were just outstanding and never felt forced. All guests were simply treated like family. They even went out to buy ginger and make me tea when I had a tummy ache! So is this the newest, most modern hotel I've stayed in, with the comfiest bed, the fastest wifi and the best pressure in the shower? No. But the staff, the quirky cool design, the great location and the value for money puts the Tripwriter on the top of my list.

          Good location, comfortable stay”

          Most of the reviews can be referred to what the others have already mentioned. I personally love the location of the hotel although it's hard to find for the first time. You'll enjoy the silence of the street compared to the pubs areas. Also within short walking distance from the eateries, pubs and mini markets. Breakfast is provided by the hotel, and you'll get to have free mineral water, coffee and tea. Room 302 is where we stayed. We were not in the room from morning until night so the heat is not affecting us. However for people that enjoys aircond coldness, I agree that the aircond seems not functioning well. The water heater is fine but the water pressure is too low, water is very slow for a good and quick shower. Shampoo and shower bath is provided. Overall is a good stay at this hotel and recommended to drop by for this good price.

Booked a room about two months back but this time around I got bumped out because apparently due to glitches in the booking system they were overbooked. I even stayed with them 3 days earlier and my luggage was left in the hotel. They put me up an another hotel two doors away but it wasn't as nice. They did offer me breakfast the next morning though. The staff did try to do their best to make up for the inconveniences caused
