Liked: I took the airport pickup so the driver walked me over to a waiting staff member. I would have probably had some problems finding the hostel if not. In the morning the front of the alley is really lively with fruit stalls and small morning market. I felt safe in the area, even when I came back at night. The area stays lively until almost midnight, but the hostel itself is far enough to escape most of the honking sounds. There is a supermarket nearby, and plenty of street food around. You can choose what you want for breakfast from a menu, and when I had to leave right as breakfast started (6:30am), they offered to have it packed for me.

Disliked: The lack of a common room. It would have been nice to be able to unwind after a day out and meet other people, but we somehow managed to do so during Happy Hour in the entrance part. Also, the shoe racks were not enough to hold everybody's shoes.

Liked: Awesome small hostel. Has really friendly staff and a chilled ot atmosphere. It's really close to the war remnants museum, the unification palace and ban ten markets.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike, however if you were looking for the party hostel in Ho Chi Minh just go to the hideout. Though you still have awesome nights out fro m here it is NOT the party place

Liked: Good location and helpful staff - organised an excellent tour for us to see the Cu Chi tunnels (with Mr Bean!). Room was clean and spacious. Elevator! Free breakfast! Free happy hour beer!

Disliked: If you're travelling from HCMC to Nha Trang DO NOT go with the bus company they book through the hostel. It's a ten hour trip and they only stopped once for an official bathroom / food break. If we didn't ask them to stop for a bathroom, we would've gone 8 hours without one. No safety deposit box in the rooms. Wifi is really slow and patchy.
