Good value, cheap adequate accommodation to base yourself in middle of ho chi minh city. Nothing to spectacular, but overall cant complain. Staff were so helpful and helped us book some tours and learn more about Vietnam. Stay here if you want to be close to centre where everything happens.

It’s worth money. The room is cheaper than other places and has got good conditions: western bathroom, airy, and has great location. Waking up in the morning and enjoying hustle life here was great for me. Enough for the short trip.

The stuff are very friendly and helpful. Its in the small lane thus not so noisy. Nice breakfast provided and not so far from airport. Easy access to museums and markets too. There is also a roadside hawker just beside the hotel, if didn't mind the hygiene, can seat down by the road side and have food there too

There is a night club right next to this hotel! The music apparently will be going on until around 4am. And is that loud that it's vibrating the tv bracket. I don't understand how this hotel has so many reviews, the rooms are nothing like the pictures they advertise and the amenities are all very old and stained. I'm pretty... More

We stayed 3 nights recently and whilst our room (which was at the back so less road noise) was small and had no window but for what we paid we could not complain! The bed was comfortable with a nice duvet, breakfast, fresh towels daily, a fridge, good air con and excellent service from all staff. We hired a moped... More

The hotel offers a good location to explore the City. Breakfast was nice and you are far enough away from the traffic to not be too noisy. Staff were friendly and overall very reasonable travellers hotel.

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights (two girls in our mid 20's). It was in the heart of it all. we wanted two nights on backpacker alley, and that's what we got! Backpacker alley is extremely loud, but we could not hear any of this once we had gone to bed. The rooms were clean and comfortable... More
