I paid USD8 per night of dorm bed. Booking over some websites might be cheaper. With this price I would say is a "premium" hostel - with definitely with more than a "premium" set of hardware and software Location: Inside an alley in the famous Pham Ngu Lao district. - Get your google map to find this without hassle Bed:...

It is one of the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Friendly, lovely and helpful staffs who always try to help you have a nice trip. I met a lot of fellow travelers here and learnt from them much experience of traveling. The dorm is always clean, 24/24 service. Highly recommend

The approach road to Phan Anh Backpackers Hostel is a little lane off one of the main roads of Ho Chi Minh. A little hard to find on your own if you don't have help, thankfully we asked the Hostel to pick us up from the airport so we were taken there directly. Breakfast is in a little pantry that... More

In a narrow side street there is this nice hostel. I've been staying here for four nights in total and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms are very clean, the lockers safe, the showers are separated from the rest of the bathroom. There's a room service every day and the breakfast get made freshly just for you. I should especially mention... More

A friend and I stayed here in a two bed private room. Mind you we had already stayed a night in another excellent hostel in the area, but after switching to Phan Anh for one night we didn't go back to the other place. The AC and WIFI worked great, the rooms were immaculate, the location was perfect, and the... More

Very good location in the Heart of Saigon. Rooms are clean and the staff are very helpful! You get free cooked breakfast and a free beer at night for their happy hour. The only downside was that social area was very small and accessability at night getting in is not the best knocking on a garage door

Good location, lots of places to eat nearby and good staff. The receptionist, Hoang Danh, was especially helpful helping me find and book things. Though the area can get noisy, the hostel is in a quiet part and I never had any trouble sleeping.

This was a great hostel, I was made welcome immediately upon my arrival. I met fellow solo travellers with whom I travelled with for the next two weeks of my trip. The staff were exceptionally helpful, and welcomed me back to the hostel to take a hot shower and store my backpack before getting my flight back home.

The staff were fantastic, both helpful and knowledgeable. They have free 1 x beer between 3 - 7, good way to meet other guests. Needed a social... More

I choose this place for the first few nights after arriving in Vietnam as I had no idea what to expect from the country as I have never been here before. I read all the reviews and was extremely pleased with my choice. The people at the desk were all very nice and friendly. The room was clean. The bed... More
