    Very friendly and helpful hosts. Nice breakfast. Many spacious lockers. Love the location: just slightly away from all the noise of the backpacker area, but close enough to go there if you want to.

    The current information about the address (should be actually that of Saigon Home Hostel); they did communicate this in advance but gave little information so arriving on the scene it was a little confusing.

    Kim at the reception is very nice, breakfast tasty, bed comfy and the rooftop is great for catching some sun.

    The bathroom is clean. Some of the staff is nice and friendly. Wi-Fi is good.

    We checked in late at night (indicated an 11 PM-12MN arrival) and we arrived at 12:30 AM. First, the name of the hostel is SAIGON HOME HOSTEL, and the name here is SAIGON CENTRAL HOSTEL. 2nd, we had a hard time looking for it since it appears on a different address in the maps (i don't know if it's because we are searching for the name SAIGON CENTRAL HOSTEL instead of its actual name as posted in their building signage). Imagine having to look for the place you're staying in the middle of the night, tired and confused, with all your luggage in tow. 3rd, we booked for a room for 4 persons but was given a room only for 3 and there was 1 stranger staying with us. My other friend had no choice and was transferred to a 10-person dormitory. We were told that on our 2nd night, my friend will be transferred to our room, but the staff outright lied to us and on our 2nd night, my friend still stayed in the dormitory. The stranger in the room was nice but it was still uncomfortable as we would arrive late from our tours and it was very awkward having a stranger in the room sleeping and we could not act around a sleeping person you don't know. Eventually, I got to have a chat with the guy in the room and said that he's been there for a few weeks already, so it means that the room was sold to us knowing that there would be another person in the room. I just think that this is not very nice, being put in that situation and having to deal with it after a long day of travel. On top of that, the staff lying to us that we will have the room to ourselves on our next night (but didn't happen) is simply unacceptable.

    Great stay, arrived later in the evening after a day travel and only stayed for one night. Was able to stay a little later which helped me catch up on sleep. Had help booking my next bus ride and even got a lift to the pick up - 5* customer service, such warm and friendly people

    It was OK for the price, and the service was pretty good, the lady on the reception was taking care of everything and she was the highlight from our stay there, toilets also were very clean. The breakfast was pretty good cook and fresh

    I booked in Saigon Central Hostel, but when I went to the address, there wasn't a hostel in there, instead I had to ask to the reception in another hotel and they sent me to where it supposed they moved... But it was another hostel called Saigon Home Hostel, but it was the same... I don't know what happened in here
