If you're staying in Ho Chi Minh City, you can't go wrong with Ngoc Thao Guesthouse. The rooms are very clean with great temperatures. I stayed in the private room and dormitory and both satisfied me. The private rooms have TVs with cable and even HBO and the dorms have lockers that come with powerful locks. Great sleeping accommodations. From... More

Nice and friendly workers, pretty helpful when planning for trips (not the best, but did their best). Clean rooms, bathrooms and beds. Fast WiFi! Free computer use in the common room. They have free breakfast in the morning (it was ok, but can't complain since it's free). Good location.

The toilets aren't great, the rooms are decent enough and a few of the staff don't speak Énglish... but the location cannot be faulted, there are great people there and most of the staff are very knowledgable and helpful. The walk up the stairs to your room is a long one, but the view from the top floor is pretty... More

This place is really nice, the people are so friendly and helpful. They really make the place special. The breakfast is good, and free. Free tea and coffee and water too. The location is just perfect. I would stay here again for sure.

Definitely the friendliest and most helpful hostel I stayed at whilst in Vietnam. I started and ended my trip here as I knew I would be welcomed back (they even gave me a returning discount!) It's not the cleanest hostel I visited, but the helpful nature of the staff made up for it. We were able to plan our trip... More

The people are so friendly and offer excellent advice, located right next to the bus drop off too. The place is comfortable and with breakfast included for $7 you can't go wrong! Ended up here by mistake because another hostel was full but didn't want to leave!

This hostel in the middle of Pham ngu lao area offers great value! The rooms are spotless and cleaned every day. The ac is reliable. I stayed in a dorm and had a great time! Downstairs there's a common area where you meet other travellers easily. The staff is wonderful and help you where they can! Great free breakfast!:)

Three of us girls stayed in the dorm room on the fifth floor! Had to climb all the stairs with heavy backpacks. Staff were all very friendly and informative of the area and trips they offered. Dorm wasn't the cleanest and nor was the bathroom which was on the balcony. Breakfast included which was good.

This hostel is excellent for many reasons. It's location is perfect, just one turn away from the lively backpackers strip. The room was cleaned to perfection, with crisp white fresh towels and bed sheets everyday. The receptionist was so lovely and when we arrived made us feel very welcome at once. She even gave us a map with the points... More

Pros: clean room and bathroom, friendly and accommodating staff, good wifi, good location, good attractions bookings (i.e. we did cu chi tunnels through the hotel, which was a lot of fun and very easy and convenient with pick-up from the travel agency) cons: room felt wet from some humidity, and we saw little ants crawling everywhere, but that may be...
