Bunk Bed in Mixed Dormitory Room
Stayed one night in September 2016
The building was the problem
The night I stayed here, I placed my bag in the safe under my bunk. The next morning. It was soaked through--all my clothes, documents, and money were ruined. I have no idea how this happened, but the staff could not be bothered to fix it. So, because of that, I would not stay here again. If you do stay here, do not sleep near the outside wall (bunk 12). However, some positive things about this hostel are that it has the perfect location in the center of town, the toilets and showers were spotless, and it was very quiet. Outside of my major complaint, the staff were quite helpful and the breakfast was good.

Second time visit, staff were rude
My second time staying here, first time the staff were lovely always helpful. This time though there was some confusion with my booking on Agoda, wanted me to pay again. Sorted in the end but the way he handled it was rude. Also some of the other staff were rude. I don't think I'll stay here for the third time.

Great hostel, definitely worth staying here
Perfect central location but quiet, helpful staff, air con dorm & room & toliets/shower v.clean
Great stay here. Excellent location, near everything. Clean, spacious dorm with air con. Clean toilet & showers. Staff are very friendly & helpful, excellent English & suggestions on things to do, bus rates are cheapest & VIP bus is good. Common area could have been cleaner & some comfier chairs/sofas. Breakfast was the only let down, bread soggy but other than that definitely worth the $5 a night. Hard to beat this hostel. It is a 2 minute walk from the National Cultural Hall so if your VIP bus drops you there don't waste money on a tuc tuc!

it's just so so
location, friendly staff and cheap price
The hostel is ok, located 5 mins walk from Mekong river. It's beautiful to see the sunset there. Night market is also minutes away. Staff are friendly and speaking good English and Vietnamese. The breakfast was good for that type of hostel. However the bathrooms and toilets were not clean, one of two toilets did not flush properly, making it really disgusting. Rooms are a bit two crowded, 16 beds or something, sometimes it was quite noisy. Internet is ok.
