Backpackers can look forward to a spacious, icy cool air-con dorm at Khoi Hostel.

There’s ample space in the eight-bed shared accommodation and the bunk frames are heavy, solid structures with the ladder to the side of the bunk, which should mean no jiggling when your bunk mate arrives. Each bed has its own reading light and electrical outlet, and a towel and locker are provided. The dorm also has a narrow balcony which smokers will appreciate for quick access. There’s one shared bathroom for the dorm.

Private rooms at Khoi Hostel are simple, functional affairs with metal bed frames and added perks like a desk/vanity, TV, small fridge, hangers and ensuite tiled wetroom bathroom. For something more modern, another option is to head to same-owned Khoi 2 Hotel at the end of the alley. The building is clearly newer and rooms feel more contemporary while boasting the same amenities. We suggest you skip the rooms with no windows, which are rather claustrophobic, and go for the room with windows. It’s pleasantly bright and white, feels fresh and comfortable with room to sprawl out.

Overall, both Khoi Hostel and Khoi 2 Hotel are tidy and polite. Price includes breakfast.

Khoi Hostel is located down the alley at 373 Pham Ngu Lao, which is near the western end of Pham Ngu Lao St. This alley is full of newer hostels, the majority following the same formula of having both dorm and private rooms. Khoi, along with Cozy House 160, boast the roomiest dorms of the lot.
