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

First of all; the service is excellent, they are really friendly, helpful and show interest. They could get 5 stars for their service. Guesthouse is really clean; you have to take your shoes off in the lobby. Breakfast is nice/cute; you get what you need. At night the guesthouse is a little bit noisy, but it's in the middle of...

title says it all. great location, friendly staff, worth every penny! a small disadvantaged of this guesthouse are the many stair you might have to clime if your room is at the 4th or 5th floor. so try to book i advance and ask for a room at one of the lower floors, since there is no elevator

The location of this place is amazing is hidden in an alley full of hotel right outside of everything, you can walk to the museum and Ben Thanh market but once you walk inside the alley the noise goes away and you can have a quiet sleep. Our room was very nice and the receptionist (I do not remember her... More

Really friendly and helpful staff, there are computers to use and located in the buzzing backpackers district. The staff booked a train for us without any problem and the place was clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was included and was simple but satisfying. Great place to stay when exploring HCMC.

We upgraded to the slightly more expensive room ($24) and it was clean, spacious, had good air-conditioning and a view over the street. The location is excellent, lots of food nearby, right in the backpackers hub. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The breakfast certainly didnt rock my world, but it did the job.

We were recommended giang son by a different hotel which was fully booked. The hotel is very clean and the staff are so helpful and friendly especially the female owner who made us feel at home as soon as we got there and also the guy who works the afternoon-evening shift was extremely chatty and friendly.

This guesthouse was fine - located in the backpacking district of Saigon, staff were reasonably helpful and the room was clean. But it was relatively expensive and we don't think good value. We have heard reports of guesthouses in the same area that are also clean but with much more helpful staff and cheaper.

I have been back to HCMC for a week, and I stayed at Giang son 2 again , off course. Always the same smiles and great service, ask them almost anything and they will get it for you. Very quiet and convenient though it's in the touristic quarter.

The owner and all the staff at this hotel were so helpful and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble which made our very first visit to this crazy city manageable. Excellent quiet location within easy reach of many tourist attractions and great value for money. Simple but tasty breakfast with strong coffee on tap. Pre booked on line with airport... More
