Was described as VIP sleeper but the beds were very uncomfortable and the cabin was very old. Not worth the money at all.

Train was good and on time. Journey pleasant. Toilet was quite damp on the seat and floor, and there was very little toilet paper (if that's what you need, like me). Enjoyed my journey overall. Slept on the very top bunks without any issues, quite fun.

Comfortable journey in a sleeper bus. Could use curtains for privacy. WiFi available. Playing music quiet loud all the way was a disturbance and unnecessary. Also more than one rest stop would be good in a 7 hour journey.

The sleeper bus was very comfortable and made travelling for 8 hours a lot more pleasant than on a normal bus. We also got a free shuttle bus to our hotel once we arrived in Nha Trang, which we were not expecting. The only negative being that my girlfriend was bitten 8 times during the drive, not sure whether it was the blanket provided or flies on the bus but it did make it uncomfortable for her.

Clean beds, decent food. Only down side if your over 6ft the beds are too short. Try and get a bottom bunk as you get more head room

train #SE22 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, May 22, 2019
We had quite an enjoyable train journey from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang. We booked a First Class Sleeper, and liked the fact that the beds were fixed and not foldable as we could "sit/or lay back and relax", rather than sit for the whole trip. The airconditioning worked really well, in fact it was quite cool after sunset (However they do provide pillow, and sleeping bag/blanket), so all good, comfortable. And the regular passes by with the food and drink vendors just added to the whole experience, and handy! The cleanliness of the cabin and toilets were pretty much as we expected. Toilet paper was provide... (But travellers tip... Do take a roll of your own toilet paper just in case, not replenished that frequently, so just in case, glad we did). Overall our trip was quite comfortable and good value for money, because after all, we weren't expecting the "Orient Express".

train #SNT2 VIP Sleeper 4x, Livitrans Express, Apr 19, 2019
We had a voucher four four people in a 4 person VIP sleeper. I went to the station the day before to try to get the actual tickets with cabin numbers but was told to return a half an hour before the train. We arrived an hour before and were told to wait and then someone ushered us through to the train with just the voucher. He was a helpful employee with no English but he got us to our cabin. The cabin looked fine but the teenage girls with us were freaked out by three different bugs going up the wall. Air con was nice and cold. It is great to leave from city centre in HCMC and arrive into the city centre of Nha Trang. We didn't see much scenery because we went overnight but previously enjoyed good views on longer routes. The toilets were very basic but functional.

Of course the the standard is not as a western 1. Class train, but it was a very cosy cabin and we managed to get some hours of sleep even though the ride is quite bumpy. We were really glad that we brought snacks since the food from the kitchen did not look that delicious. But all in all a very good experience.

As with other reviews, there was no Livitrans ticket place at HCMC. We had to ask platform staff for help. Carriage nothing like pictures and no different from standard despite paying extra. Small bottle of water and a face wipe was all that was provided. AC worked. Bring earplugs!
