The gest house located in the center of the backpacker area but still mange to be relatively quiet. The owner was wonderful and super helpful and even helped us to take the bus to our next destination. The room was just OK but I guess this is what you get in this price.

Family run place and everyone there is lovely. I think the set up is husband and wife (+children) and a grandmother. Both the husband and the grandmother speak English well and can recommend places to eat/trips/transport/etc. We did an overnight trip to the Mekong Delta in between our stay so ended up in two different rooms. Both were clean, spacious... More

We stayed 6 nights at the Mai guesthouse and have no complaints. Rooms had everything we needed and were very clean.

I can really recommend this place. The owner is so nice and cares so much! He'll help you out with anything needed. The rooms are in a good shape! Wifi/AC is working. The Guesthouse is located in District 1 and you have everything in walking distance.

The owners are really nice and helpful. It is located in the heart of the backpackers hostels area, district 1, really central. Everything is a few minutes walking. Perfect if you are on a budget but you want a clean and safe place to sleep.

Located in backpacker area in a vibrant little street near pham ngu lao street. Guest house is pleasent, clean, but lot of stairs if you get a room in 3th floor. Big and clean family room in 3th floor has a big almost panoramic window for a great view.

I am a 63 year old woman travelling alone and ended up staying in this guest house for 10 days. (I firstly only booked for 3 days initially) It is down an alley but one of the most vibrant alleys I've ever seen. Food being cooked, people selling things, hotels, guest houses and hostels. Don't be put off by the... More

I have mixed feelings about this one. We arrived and didn't have the right room. We'd carried our bags to 11 flight of stairs so we just dealt with it. I'd booked for 5 - 2ad and 3ch) But we were missing a bed. The owners wife was very helpful and made a fold out bed (she doesn't speak much... More
