Room is old but OK for backpacker. Breakfast was good tho. Best part is free laundry (one cloth and pants a day) . I will only recommend for one or two night short stay. There is better one out there

I have been to Ho Chi Minh five (5) time and this is my foruth time at this hostel. Formerly known as Sunny Hotel, this hostel is highly recommendable. Although the area is a sort of a market place, once you entered the room, you won't believe how clean, tidy and fragrant it is. The staff changed your towel everyday,... More

The staff are friendly and very close to the 'party street'. Its actually very good as its close to the street and NOT on the street. Very reasonable price and breakfast good. Not close to all the landmarks but tourist buses can be organised from the hotel. Recommend this as it is much cheaper to do this.

Tripadvisor has the incorrect name for this hotel - it is now called "Ava 3" - I wrote to them months ago but they haven't yet made the correction. I stayed here for one night when other options were unavailable to me in the Bui Vien backpacker district. The room was small, and the bathroom and fridge were very smelly.... More

My room was spotlessly clean. The bed was hard, but I still slept well. The bathroom was nice. The restaurant upstairs was really good and had a nice view. There is also a spa in the hotel where you can get a very detailed massage....... if you know what I mean. I honestly love this place. Oh, you can smoke... More

Location is good. Easy to move around to find food. Hotel is old. Aircon and water heater is ok. Free wifi, simple breakfast and free laundry. Mattress needs to change as the centre spring has sunk in.

The sign on the outside says Sunny. But this is now the Ava 3. There is a New Sunny Hotel up De Tham closer to the park. I stayed here for five nights. I'm not sure what they did to the place upon the change of ownership but they still have the room with the mushroom (i.e. fungus) growing from... More

I stayed at the Sunny Hotel Saigon for 3 nights and found it to be overall pleasant with just a few issues. When I checked in I was offered a free upgrade from a windowless room to one with a window. At first I was excited about the upgrade but it actually turned out to be a downgrade. I had... More

Good location with small comfortable room and basic breakfast. This hotel is fine for a couple of nights. There is 24 hour salon below hotel that is separate business, so no problem if you need foot massage or manicure in the middle of the night. The salon is where BEN coffee shop used to be and sadly is no longer,... More
