The Hideout Hostel Saigon Reviews


The Hideout is the No1 hostel in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City. We offer the ultimate backpacker accommodation:2 FREE BEERS EVERYDAY - BREAKFAST - FAST WIFI - A/C - HOT SHOWER.

Our building has just been completely modernized and everything is new. All our dorm rooms are fully equipped with en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning, fans, new really comfortable beds, and the 10 bed dorms have a balcony overlooking the beautiful park across the street.

We have a chill out room downstairs where you can have a few beers with other guests, watch a movie, use our guest computers or just relax. And we have a bar next door - The Drunken Gecko Saigon with something happening every night and happy hours.

We are located down Pham Ngu Lao Street the famous backpacker area of Ho Chi Minh City. Named after the famous general Pham Ngu Lao from the Tran Dynasty many people now say it is Saigon's answer to Khaosan Road in Bangkok and is a tourist attraction itself.

There are many bars, shops and restaurants where locals and tourists come to hang out, drink, eat and party. It’s the perfect location to explore all that this awesome city has to offer including The Independence Palace (Re-unification Palace), War Remnant Museum, Central Post Office, Notre Damn Cathedral and Ben Thanh Market.

Location and Contact


• How to get to us:
• 1. If you are arriving into Tan Son Nhat airport, there are 3 ways to reach our hostel:
• - The easiest way to get to us is by bus. Bus 109 leaves every 20 minutes (between 5:30AM and 1AM) directly from the international terminal, stops at the domestic terminal then heads to District 1 (this is a new service started in March 2016 and is a brand new bus that takes a direct route with less stops). The cost is 20,000VND (90 Cents) and it drops you off at the bus station down the street from The Hideout Hostel.
• - You can also get a taxi, we recommend you use a VINASUN or MAI LINH taxi as these will not rip you off and only use meters to calculate the fare. This will cost you from 150.000 to 200.000 VND - approximately $7-10 and take around 25-30 minutes depending on traffic. The taxi will drop you off at 281 Pham Ngu Lao street, District 1.
• - Or the cheapest way from the airport is to catch the bus 152 which you will find parked outside the arrival exit of the airport. The journey will take approximately 40 minutes and it will stop at a bus interchange opposite Ben Thanh Market. Hop off the bus at the interchange, then you can walk down from Ben Thanh market to our Hostel in around 10 minutes. It operates between 7AM and 7PM and the cost is 5000VND (20 Cents).
• 2. If you are coming to Ho Chi Minh by tourist bus it will drop you off at the bus station on Pham Ngu Lao St then just walk to our hostel.
• 3. If you are arriving by train to the station you are able to get a VINASUN or MAI LINH taxi (good value taxi). This will cost you from 70.000 to 100.000 VND and takes around 20 minutes. The taxi will drop you off at 281 Pham Ngu Lao Street, District 1.
