Very very basic accommodation, with not the best feelings of clean room or bathroom. Fan full of dust and similar for air-conditioning. Room not cleaned every day, with a cheap price but not super cheap. Staff not very present but neither annoying. Location, it's the only great thing as is in the middle of backpackers area and room didn't get... More

Thx for your revieuw, because of this i had all the fans and aircons cleaned the next day. I should have been more careful in checking the rooms, it's a reminder. About the rather basic rooms i think you had the 10 usd room which is basic (and cheap). It was the last room we build as we had many... More

If you looking somewhere for stays, I recommend to you this hotel. Clean, comfortable, the staff very friendly ( weak English skills but try hard enough for understand what is clients say ). At the first floor they have a great restaurant with good food. Location is really center in travelers. I'll back again when I plan to go hcmc.... More

We stayed here for four days. The room was clean, however it was a bit grubby with a strange smell coming from the air con. In saying that the location is great, a good strong shower, strong wifi and a computer and mini bar in the room is a nice touch - it's perfect for a backpacker who is out... More

My review is for the food, not the rooms. Ate here last night (Halloween) while the area was going off!! Had the Taster Plate & Papaya Salad & it was too much for 1 person. Thoroughly enjoyable. Saigon Green stubby at D10,000 is the best value yet. Stayed so long I had Fried Rice w Chicken & Mushroom (D66,000) about... More

Perfect place to stay for a few days while visiting hcmc. Very friendly owners and employees. Computer in the room was a nice detail. Option to burn your pictures or just use the fast internet. Wi-Fi was working good as well. It's upstairs from a restaurant. Very good food. But if you want to go somewhere else, the whole neighborhood... More

We did not stay at the guesthouse but we had our dinner there and returned there for breakfast and dinner for the next day. They have many variety of food and the price is very reasonable, suitable for budget traveller. Location is also very good. When we were there for dinner, the restaurant is almost full house. We noticed there... More

Thank you for your great review. I checked out why service was so slow the next morning. As far as my 2 waitresses could remember it was on last sunday and they ran out of cheese. Normally it takes a few minutes to get it as the shop is around the corner. However this one is closed on sunday so... More

I was here the yesterday night. And I met a waitress who worn a blue dress with white dots. At first impression, I thought she was friendly, she talked to me so nicely, I'm actually into her. But then I noticed that she ignored a girl who sit at the front table for several times although the girl had already... More

Dear customer, i am the owner and can remember this incident (first time in many years) and can understand your reaction. What you wrote down is completely right, but you miss the underlying reason. The customer sitting outside was a friend of our catcher and she was there for about 3 hours chatting. When i saw them chatting many times... More

After a recommendation we swapped hotels to this hotel. It was really well run, the room had all amenities of a more expensive hotel for less of the cost. We loved the rainbow shower!! Great location on the main backpackers street though from your cosy room you'd have no idea. The staff had little English but were very lovely and... More
