Backpacking Club Hostel
Reviewed 20 August 2014

The main reason for choosing this hostel was the location, right next to the bus stop, so it was easy to get in and out of Saigon (Ho Chi Min City). Staff is nice and helpful. They kept our luggage all day and let us use shower facilities even after checkout. We booked a private twin room, but instead we were put in a 5-bed-dorm room, but only we used it, so it was ok. They also have a choice of tours, we booked CuChi tunnels tour with them, and it was very good, although we had a small misunderstanding with the payment, at check-out they were claiming we had not paid, while we had paid the day before with a different staff member. But finally we did not have to pay twice. Breakfast is included, but very simple. Overall it is a good value.

It is behind main Pham Ngu Lao street in very small alleys and hard to find in the beginning. Should have more references to find it, besides the address.

We arrived in Ho Chi Minh having booked this hostel previous to arrival, and had booked a twin private room. When we showed up they had no twin rooms available for us, so instead they put us in a five bed dorm with just us in it, which was a fair compromise. There is plenty of tour to do in Ho Vhi Minh and we booked two through this hostel. The first was the Cu Chi tunnels whihc was excellent, but the second was for the floation market, and when we arrived at the Mekong Delta, there was no floating market. It was still an alright trip, but not what we had paid to do. Otherwise we had a good stay here, with good wifi, showers and beds.

Great location in district 1, by everything you could need or see!
Very clean rooms with air conditioning, free use of computers and good wifi! Minimal breakfast included and ice tea on arrival.
Helpful staff who can change money, book trips, ect.
Only point: white clothes came back from laundry pink!

Walked in to the hostel to ask for a bed and was shown to the dorm immediately. For only $5 a night you get a comfortable bed in a 9-bed dorm with aircon 24/7. They will keep your passport and you only pay when you check out. Breakfast included, simple scrambled eggs with baguette and coffee/tea. I think this hostel is run by a family so you'll feel like staying at a guesthouse. Tours and buses can be booked at the recep as well. The only downside is that the toilet and shower is located inside the room so it could be inconvenient to other guests.

For 5$ a night in a 6-8 bed dorm with breakfast included and air con/TV you can't really go wrong! It may be a little hard to find, down a dingy alleyway however it was worth searching for. In a very central location close to all the bars and restaurants in district 1 it has friendly staff and a very clean environment. For budget conscious travellers this is perfect!

Room Tip: 5 floors and no elevator, if you can't be bothered with stairs try to get one on a lower floor!

the location is good! cleanness alright.. We stayed in a ten bed room and the 2 showers and the toilet was in the room as well which was good but they were only seperated through a wall/door and did not have a top.... little weird... Oh and lockers existed for all beds in the room but some were broken and you couldnt lock them
breakfast was good but only available until a certain time!
lots of nice backpackers!
we arrived around 2 o clock in the morning and we were let in nicely
