The phanam hotel was a good place to stay, it is located in the backpacker area, so all the bars are at a walking distance, it is quite close to a market, down the alley (it was actually hard to get there) the staff was attentive and helpful, we had a private room and it was superb, clean and well...

The price for our stay was really cheap and affordable. We didn't expect such good quality of services and such clean rooms. The staffs were so friendly, they suggested some good places to eat and massage around Pham Ngu Lao. Best thing is that they have happy hour every night and you can get a free beer!

We stayed in this hostel for four nights and it was a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. The staff are really helpful and the dorms are very clean with secure lockers and ensuite bathrooms. The only thing we missed was a common area but otherwise it was great! Would definitely stay again.

Three of us stayed here for four nights, sharing a double bed and a single bed. Really comfy and in a great location as well, within 20 minutes walking distance of the major District 1 landmarks, and 2 minutes away from one if the main tourists roads. Special mention to the staff Quyen, Trang, and Diep, who were extremely helpful... More

This is a fantastic hostel. The staff are really friendly and helpful, it's impeccably clean and the breakfast is great! Only slight problem was the air con in my dorm not working the first night, but they got an engineer in the next day to fix it - can't ask for much more!

One of the best hostels that I have stayed in, a warm and helpful welcome. The room was big, clean and had a good sized bed. The wifi was free and super fast, the breakfast was really nice and so was the happy hour. The location is close to everything but far enough away so you can sleep. The staff... More

I stayed at female dorm for 5 days. Clean room, nice air conditioner, clean toilet, and nice location. It was not that easy to find a hostel at the first time, but once you know where your hostel is, you will find that this hostel is located at nice place. Staffs are all cool and nice. couldn't get to have... More
