A true backpacker's hostel owned & operated by an Aussie and a crazy Vietnamese guy so I threw on my cape and created a hostel like no other and you know we've got it right! Why only 5 bucks you ask? 'Looks so good, there must a catch. Is there hidden costs?' Nope! ....you're a backpacker right? You're on a budget right? So we cater the price to your needs!
Once you are here ... You simply won't want to leave! Read more
