Whether you are a hard-core party person, a level-headed traveller, or someone seeking creative minds, we can point you towards where to bed down in the best hostels in Ho Chi Minh City. Here are the top ten to be found in the city.

The Common Room Project

Bizarre in concept yet stranglely nice in the way it brings it all together, The Common Room Project is where a hotel meets a hostel, where the comfort blends well with young vibes and social interraction. There’s a community-feel here (this is a hostel, after all) – not a drinking bar for parties but more like a homey communal room where creative ideas are encouraged over dinners featuring local produce and an emphasis on slow and off the beaten track travel.
