I stayed here one night and it was very good quality for the money (24 US Dollars). The room was small but adequate. Excellent location near a lot of restaurants and tourist attractions. The breakfast was disappointing but for the price, I was not expecting much. Also, the elevator did not go to the ground floor, so you have to carry your luggage up one floor or let the bellboy do it. He is very helpful. For the money, a great deal!!

The hostel was in a good location. Close to bars and restaurants. However, it wasn’t the cleanest. My friends and I stayed in a triple single bedroom. There were stains on our sheets and we found a tick on our bed (gross). The room wasn’t the cleanest. Also, the beds were hard as a rock. It felt like we were sleeping on the floor. The tour they recommended for the Cu Chi Tunnels was not one I would recommend. It picked us up late and dropped us back off even later.

Dear guest, We're sorry to hear your review. We try our best to check the room status again and do our best to keep it clean. Regarding Cu Chi tunnel tour, we contact YTC travel agency. Since they have to go to a lot of hostel and hotel to pick up many guests, so sometimes it will be a little bit later than the time writing on brochure. Hope that you can forgive this mistake. Futhermore, if there was any problem, we are willing to hear from you and tell them for a better services. Finally, hope you have a nice trip. Best regards, Ann

The staff at this hotel welcomed me after I messed up my reservation in other hostel in Cusco at 1am! The hotel is nice and quiet with a great vibe, the beds are comfortable and there’s a great WiFi and a very decent breakfast offering fried yuca as a hot item on their free breakfast. The prices of the menu are really good even to compare to many places in Cusco. I haven’t eat there but I believe the quality of the food is at good level. Would recommend to stay here even for a families.

We stayed two nights in the mixed dorm of the eco hostel. It's clean and a great service. The bed is ok. You get a free bear every evening and it's a good place in Ho Chi Minh. The best thing in the hostel was the roof top. Nice view at the city and a little quiet.

Exactly as advertised. Clean, cheap and (eco)friendly. The location is perfect if you want to be in the centre of what's happening. The capsule style beds gives you quite a lot of privacy for a dorm room. Most suitable for the adult backpacker.
