The breakfast was just fine, I had a good time with my roommates. The room was comfortable, the shower room was nice. The... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in both dorm and twin rooms. Both very clean and well kept. The staff were friendly and nothing was ever too much. The included breakfast of sandwiches and iced coffee was excellent.

And one thing i like most is that it very quiet at night. Secondly, the staffs very hospitable. They sat down and talk with me, enjoyed the... More

The hostel staff were very helpful helping me with boooking a bus and boat ticket to Phu Quoc. The manager was very kind too. I wasn't leaving Ho Chi Minh City until 10pm... More

My trip to HCMC didn't start well. When I turned up at my chosen hostel it was shut due to plumbing/electric problems so I was led to a TERRIBLE hostel (Ms Thu - do NOT stay there). So, the following morning I set out and found Phan Anh and all of my problems slipped away. It's excellent, the staff are... More

From the welcome drink on arrival to holding our luggage.I had a great experience. The family service is warm and friendly, as they really look after their guests. They took the time to show me where everything was on the map they hand out and made sure everything was all right. I wanted to stay another night but unfortunately they... More
