A small family-run place in the heart of the backpacker district. The family live downstairs and rent out a few rooms upstairs. The people who run this place are delightful and welcoming in a charming quiet way that doesn't intrude. The rooms are basic but clean and pleasant, and over all it is very good value. My room (upper floor)... More

We chose this hostel amongst hundreds in ho chi minh because of the good ratings and they didnt dissapoint! We have stayed in other good hostels around pham gu lao before, but ly loan overtook them all with their kind and helpful attitude, giving that little extra something. The room was nice and clean with air-con that worked, clean sheets... More

Beds are comfy, wifi worked. Room had good size and windows. Location is great - away from the street- noise but still in the middle of the backpackers action. Negativ was that the water was not really that hot. And a bit too much ants in the room. Family is nice and helpfull. Would go back there again even though... More

The hospitality we received the two nights we stayed at Ly Loan were more than to expect from the cheapest we could find in Saigon. We arrived very early at 3:00 in the morning and she greeted us with a big smile took us to our room and made sure we were all settled before leaving us for the night.... More

The Ly Loan gang were very welcoming and friendly the whole of our stay. They provided information of where to visit and details for the bus to the Mekong Delta. "See ya later" Convenient location in the backpackers area with lots of bars and places to eat close by.

The family at this hostel were completely amazing! They welcomed us and gave us many helpful tips. They offered us the top floor, which happened to be the only room with its own terrace and balcony for only $14/night! There were ants but it wasn't too bad. The stairs to this room was a lot of work but it was... More

Booked this guesthouse because of the reviews on TA and they did not disappoint. The guesthouse is down one of many alleyways in HMC. It's right beside ABC bakery and a small fruit juice stand. The family are very friendly and welcoming. The young woman that does most of the guesthouse work is very lovely and informative. She gave us... More

Upon first arriving in Saigon we where a bit confused as to where to go , however finding the nearby ABC Cafe and then turning in the next alleyway we quickly found this unassuming guesthouse. At first we were not sure if this was a private residency as the family where all gathered downstairs but upon entering we where greeted... More

Like other reviews on here stated, you feel like you're staying at a friend/family member's house. Just very helpful, friendly, trustworthy people. On a couple occasions, Phuong understood that we desired good street food, so she put the baby in the stroller and walked us to her food recommendations...and it was right on, exactly what we were craving. Knowing that... More
