Hotel is located in the alley between Pham Nhu Lao and Bui Vien so it is not crowded and it is pretty quiet. From Bui Vien get into alley number 84 (next to Air Asia sign). We were allowed to leave our baggage and have a shower in the evening before our take off.

This place is located down a well lit alley in district 1 (the backpackers district). I can see how some people have troubles finding it but it's really quite easy. If you arrive by bus most drop you off in district 1, do not get a cab as the hotel is a five minute walk! One cab driver said it... More

We stayed here late August for a few nights and were happy with the room for the price we paid. The general location is very good, however the hotel itself is in a maze of small back alleys making it a little hard to find if you are new to the area, especially at night time. The room was small,... More

We stayed 3 nights here. It's in the backpacker area, lots of restaurants and bars. It is tucked away in an alley way as are lots of the small hotels/hostels in this area just off the Main Street. Google map it so you know exactly when u are going! It was a small room but fine for us with a... More

A little bit hard to find in the small alleys of the backpackers district. Very friendly and helpfull staff. The rooms are basic and clean. The location of the hotel is in the middle of the backpackers distrcict. So the location is excellent for backpackers. Overall great value for your money,

At first it was a little hard to find as it's located in a small alley, but the location also leads to quiter rooms even though it is in the backpacker's district. Basic rooms with everything you need and great airco. The guy at the reception is super friendly and always there to help you with anything. We went back... More

I stayed as a solo traveller, in a room with a double bed, and it was my first stop in Vietnam. Thien, the guy who runs the reception, was great. At times, a little abrupt, but when I needed help he was amazing. Reception closes at about 11pm, but he sleeps on the floor and is happy to open up... More

I booked this hotel based on the reviews.. The hotel was hard to find to me. I'm not used to the little dark alleys off the main streets of Saigon. There was no one at the desk when I arrived, although a friendly young man appeared right away. I was led to a 3rd floor room. Very simple and clean.... More

When we arrived at 10pm the guest house had shut although they had our booking written down in the book. We were rudely greeted but three boys who were obviously more concerned about their own social meeting than us as guests. We were shown to our room and the floor was dirty with hair and the beds only had one... More

Simple but clean and quiet room. No frills, but none needed with this price and location! Friendly and accommodating staff. Great location in the heart of district 1 excitement. Happily spent a night here when I first visited HCM, and then came back later for a whole week.
