I have been to Giang Son for one night in August. The hosts are young and enthusiastic, the bedroom was clean, although not big. The breakfast is included: you can choose between coffee and tea, you get one banana and some bread with jam. For some reason, the wall of the bathroom was made of opaque glass, so don't go... More

This guesthouse is in the heart of the backpacking area down a side street but still seems to be so quiet with no noise from the main roads. Rooms where clean and good value, breakfast was really nice. The staff were incredibly friendly, especially the young man sinh, he offered great advice, organised tours and taxis, and always happy to... More

The hotel is good value for its category : 20$ or so per night. the rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and helpful and the location is good. The breakfast was the only disappointment and should be improved.

The people are very accommodating. Our room is clean. The location is accessible and is within the Saigon City. Its cheaper and worth the stay. For those travelers/adventurers who is on a tight budget and wants to explore the City of Ho Chi Minh, look for Giang Son Guest House!

Stayed at Giang Son 2 Guesthouse for two nights while in HCMC (only 3/4 doors down from the original Giang Son Guesthouse). Friendly staff, great location, clean rooms, comfortable beds and competitive pricing make this an excellent place to stay.

We found this to be in a great location down an alley way, quiet, the staff were really nice, breakfast included, we were staying as a family of 5 with a 2yr old & 7yr old who were totally fussed over. The rooms are small but very clean and comfortable, we spent 3 nights here. I would highly recommend to... More

Great location too within easy walking distance of all the main sights. Recommend the Lonely Planet walking tour which starts in the... More

Our first night in Vietnam (we had booked before we came) based on lonely planet and trip advisor recommendations. The hotel offered airport collection which was very smooth although in reflection quite expensive ($15). On arrival the staff were lovely and the location was right in the middle of Pham Ngu Lao and easy walking distance to bars, restaurants and... More

Cheap, clean and good service. Nice little hotel. After a warm welcome they told us that there had been a mistake with the booking and we got a free upgrade to a 3-person suite. The next day we decided to stay another night but we had to switch to another room. No problem. Greetings Robin de Boer
