A nice hostel in a good location, does a good pub crawl in the bar next door and a free breakfast. Rooms were as you'd expect, pretty clean but my advice is to take your own pillowcase as I caught conjunctivitis staying here, but probably 1 in 1000 who get that so I'd still recommend this hostel

We only stayed here for two nights but we really enjoyed it! The staff/reps are a lot of fun and really make your night enjoyable! You get two free drinks between 7-8 after you've checked in then most nights they go on a bar crawl which was fun too! We were in an 8 bed dorm which was very small...

Hideout Hostel Saigon which I spent all my trip in Ho Chi Minh was good. It is located in the heart of Ho Chi Minh tourist area. Friendly and helpful staff. So social. Got a lot of fun. Value for money. Highly recommend.

Nice hostel with clean rooms and lockers, but we had a very bad time during our two nights stay : we were in a 10 beds dormitory, with 8 guys drinking in the room all afternoon and evening long, sitting on our beds, throwing their bottles and cans everywhere on the floor. They came back middle of the night totally...

It's already rated the best and am writing this review just to confirm this. Had great time here. Does not matter if you are solo or traveling in group. Ended up staying for 4 nights. Pub crawl is a must for everyone. Great atmosphere. Views are good from balcony. Only issue was AC was not good enough.

Good location in the backpacker/tourist district of Vietnam. Easily walkable to many of the local sights and the hostel arranges tours (albeit a bit overpriced given how easy they are to do yourself) to the main attractions. The hostel itself is relatively cramped and the rooms have an adequate level of cleanliness but nothing that stands out. The breakfast, similar,...

Book in advance very popular hostel. Bar crawl every night. Staff are really welcoming. Staff come in your dorm at certain times and give you frees shots and you get free bottle of beer at certain times. Defiantly would stay here again ! Great location.

This hostel is everything a backpacking hostel should be in my opinion, with a nice blend of a good social side with clean rooms and comfy beds! The bar crawl they do every night is great for socialising and making friends. The dorm rooms may get a little loud if you in encounter some larger parties, but nothing you wouldn't...

Ended up staying here longer than I planned. The room was clean and comfortable. I was on the third floor which was quiet even at night. Reception was very helpful. The bar crawl is essentially just many hours of drinking cheaply at the hostel and then just a couple places after but it was a great way to meet people....

Excellent location, exactly what you'd expect from a backpacker's hostel. Very friendly staff, with a pub crawl every night. Rooms are clean, facilities are decent, everyone is social and it's very easy to meet people. Only bad thing is that there's not too many guides and recommendations to do around the city during the day.

All our dorm rooms are fully equipped with en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning, fans, new really comfortable beds, and the 10 bed dorms have a balcony overlooking the beautiful park across the street. We have a chill-out room where you can watch a movie from the 100's we have stored on the tv, with big comfy sofas and bean bags. We are located down Pham Ngu Lao Street the famous backpacker area of Ho Chi Minh City. Named after the famous general Pham Ngu Lao from the Tran Dynasty many people now say it is Saigons answer to Khaosan Road in Bangkok and is a tourist attraction itself. There are many bars, shops and restaurants where locals and tourists come to hang out, drink, eat and party. It's the perfect location to explore all that this awesome city has to offer including The Independence Palace (Re-unification Palace), War Remnant Museum, Central Post Office, Notre Damn Cathedral and Ben Thanh Market. ... more   less
