We paid less than $15usd/night for a great accommodations! The host-family is very pleasant and make sure that you are comfortable. The home is very centrally located, but just off the street so that it is not hectic right when you get out of the door. However, there are still a bunch of nice amenities nearby - from massages to... More

I have been communicating with Phoung who was the daughter of the owner. The location is just off an alley from Buy Vien (beer street) and Pham Ngu Lao which is the heart of the backpackers' area. Phuong was very nice and pleasant. She shared a lot of things about the place and at the end of the trip made... More

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
