Stayed for 4nights double room with attached toilet. A/c room, enough hot water though water flow is not that strong but not bad. Basic toiletries provided, bed are little bit hard but not that bad, room is small and there are only 2 plug socket, maybe try to bring extension. Our room is quiet and wifi is good. Location wise is great, lots of restaurants, walking distance to ben tanh, tour agency, bar area, convenience store. Staffs are lovely, very helpful and courteous people! No breakfast, but hey, lots of street food, no need to walk far, lots of VEGAN restaurants near the hostel!

Stayed in a triple room here for three nights, which was incredibly small and noisy. The room has windows to a shaft that ran throughout the hotel and noise carries through it so badly that you can hear your neighbour having a shower/using the loo (not nice). The beds were very uncomfortable and the duvet was very itchy. Also there was no breakfast at this hotel even though I have read other reviews saying breakfast was good. I assume they have stopped serving it since then. The location is good however, as the hotel is right near the main backpacker roads for bars/restaurants.

Awesome location and very clean. Cheaper for a private room than a lot of dorms. Bathroom made some weird noises and the toilet splashed a lot for no reason. Bed was not amazing but I've had much worse. Would definitely stay here again if I was in hcmc

This hotel has recently changed name to 'CK Saigon Central Hotel'. A friend and I stayed here for 2 weeks while going in and around Saigon. The location is brilliant, in a little alleyway which has all the things you could need on your doorstep. Grocery shops, laundrette, ample friendly good restaurants, massage centres, hairdressers - the lot! Added bonus is that the popular Bui Vien Road is literally a minute's walk from the hotel, however, you cannot hear a single thing from the hotel considering the close proximity! The staff at the hotel, especially Hong, are awesome. Hong couldn't do enough for us, and always gave service with a smile. Prior to our arrival, she also kept in touch with us via email and gave some very useful advice. She also speaks great English and is ready to help with whatever you need. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. My friend and I booked a twin room, so cannot comment on what the dorms are like, however, we got talking to another guest who was in a dorm and said it was great. Awesome wifi connection throughout. I highly recommend this hotel for your accommodation needs.

This hotel is now named Ck Saigon Central Hotel. The location is fantastic! 2min from the pub Street, 5-10min by walking to the bus station, 5min by walking to Ben Thành Market. Initially we booked two nights here and stayed at room 101, located immediately above the reception. The room as clean but we found it too noisy at night! We later asked to stay for a third night and they made us move to room 402, a super small room (we barely had space to put our bags). This room had a community of ants and we found it even more noisy than the first one. The first day we paid for the laundry service, which overall worked fine except for the white clothes that came full of blue and grey stains. We asked them to clean them again, which they obviously did. One of the t-shirts was stamped in blue and red and cam back yellow and blue instead! Everything else was fine. The staff is nice and helpful, even though they don't speak much English.
