We stayed in various homestays in Vietnam, and this was the warmest and most 'genuine'. The owner, her daughter and the lady who helps them are lovely people who are happy to chat about themselves and life in Vietnam in general. They gave us recommendations when we asked for them, but never tried to sell us anything, which was very... More

My partner and I booked this place well in advance of our arrival in Vietnam after reading reassuring reviews from other travellers via hostelworld. Let me first comment on the good parts of this hotel - the room was large, the bed comfy, the air con worked well and the host and her daughter were very friendly and gave us... More

Really good location in the backpacker area, a lot to do and easy spot to walk elsewhere in the city. The room and bathroom were decent, but the best part were the nice ladies that run the guesthouse. They were so sweet every morning, asking us what our plans were and giving us awesome local advice. We booked a cheap,... More

This place was amazing. We had stayed in a very impersonal hotel in another city, where the staff were always trying to sell us something, and coming here to this homey place with a family that did everything for us to have a good time was very refreshing. We felt great. They were very respectful. If you want to have... More

If you are looking for a great and interesting place to stay, definitely come here. You will be perfectly welcomed in a small house by the family. The localisation is ideal, in the centre with everything near it, yet it is in a very small street so it is very calm. The room is clean and the matress good, we... More

That is the worst place I have been so far in Vietnam. The room was stinking of cigarettes, there was mold on the walls, no soap in the baths( because we could get itchy skin accordingly the lady there( we got some soap later), no hot water, only blankets, no bed sheets, dirty and stinking pillows. Also the owner detained... More

Staying here was an absolute joy! The rooms are big with a fridge, TV and air con and our bathroom also had a bath in it which was brilliant - plenty of hot water too! It was spotless, with towels changed every day. It's in a great location, we stayed on the 2nd floor and our room was really quiet... More

This place is hands down the best place we have stayed in 6 months of travelling Asia. The location is perfect, everything is right on the door step but its also really quiet at night. The rooms are great, really comfy bed and nice bathroom with a bath and a shower with loads of hot water. The most impressive thing... More

The family running this place are just so charming and friendly. Lots of great advice. The toddler living there is a bit obnoxious, but just give him a firm "no" if he tries to hit you with his toys. I wholeheartedly recommend this place to anybody visiting Saigon.

I stayed at Ly Loan for one month. The family who runs it made me feel like part of their family. They were super helpful. They helped with any requests I had, would always take time to talk, ask about my day, and see if I needed anything, and would often give me fresh fruit or delicious homemade Vietnamese snacks....
