Pretty much just what the title says, this hotel is fine, good for the price. Location is the best thing about it, very central and easy to walk to anywhere of interest. Staff were ok, not overly friendly but helpful for booking tours, taxis etc. Only real issue we had was that they make you take your shoes off to... More

The location is perfect and at the center of action. Nice breakfast included although quite simple, options include two fried eggs or omelette with bread, noodles or pancakes. Free coffee or tea available all the time in the main lobby as well as a few computers available for free. Stayed in the 8 bed mixed dorm and it was nice... More

While the staff in the guesthouse is quite friendly I was very much surprised that when I asked for hand soap, one of the ladies told me that I could buy it in a shop outside. I've been to many many hostels and this is the first one that doesn't provide some. I do believe it wouldn't be too hard... More

The hostel is a great location, in the middle of the backpackers district. Prices are very reasonable. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was well air conditioned, clean and had an en suite bathroom. The rooms by the road get noisy but that is to be expected in such a location. The staff offer a wide range of... More

I spent three nights here in July 2015 while traveling with one other companion. Our private double was simple, clean and well-air conditioned. The staff really made the experience. They have a solid selection of 1- and 2-day trips that they will book for you at very fair prices. We took a 1-day trip to the Cu Chi tunnels (dropped... More

The family who manages the guesthouse is really...really friendly, the rooms are clean, the living room/lobby area with free coffee and stuff is also very house like. At first we thought it would be a bit messy amd dirty because it's cheap, but aparently not. And we loved it that's why we added another night.

We started and finished our Vietnam trip in Ho Chi Minh City and stay both times in this guest house. It is located in the centre of the backpacker area with a lot of street food and massage places around. An only 10 minute walk to the famous market. The rooms are clean and the air-condition works perfectly. The staff... More

I was kinda dissapointed with the hostel where it was located. But since i was just transiting to goto Hanoi..it was a fine enough place. Staff hardly ever interacted with me..but seemed very helpful to other travellers.Many better hostels around the same location..for the same price. so would not come back.
