Friendly and helpfull staff, nice rooms.
The staff is super friendly and so helpfull with anything you need. They offer cheap tours and they will book bus tickets for you. The hostel itself is very clean and updated, the beds are great looking and comfortable. The only negative part was the tiny ants I sometimes got in my bed (about 5-6, so not too bad). The lockers are super roomy and you get a key for it, and one for the room. The vibe is chill and you can hang out in the reception/entrance. The backpacker street can be accessed from two places, one of the streets (by the food market) offers many rats and smells. But if you go to the right (I think) when you step out of the hostel, the street is mostly rat free (I didn't encounter any) and you will find a small grocery store and some food places. Try the greek place, they have great gyros (yes I know you're in Vietnam, but one can cheat a few times). The entrance gets closed at 11PM (I believe it was), but you will be let in/out if you want to leave the hostel or come back. This is for security reasons. I enjoyed my two nights very much and would recommend it!

Hostel dorm rooms, good value for 1 night stay
No frills hostel. Cheap, location good. Perfect just to have a bed to sleep on, decent shower. Dont expect luxury, but you know you should not because it is extremely cheap.
