The rooms were very clean and the personal was so friendly. The girl who's in the reception will help you with everything. They also have WiFi and aircon. The hotel is in the city but in a quietly street. You can get everything you need in this district. They're a lot of tourist information center and at night you can... More

I would certainly recommend this. Great staffs, ver friendly. Clean rooms, Backpacks can fit inside the lockers. Simple breakfast but its absolutely fine woth me since I just love requesting vegetable scrambled eggs with bread everyday. If ill come back to saigon K would definitely stay again here. Price is cheap but the quality service is excellent. Keep it up!

Really nice, quiet, clean hostel, good location. The entire place was really clean and as a solo female backpacker, I felt safe the entire time. Air conditioning was fantastic. I accidentally left my iphone charger in the wall socket and they found it and mailed it to my next destination in Vietnam! Can't recommend the staff and service enough!!

Phan Ahn was an excellent hostel. I came late at night after Saigon Backpackers gave my room away and they were quick to take care of me when I arrived. Very clean rooms, efficient and friendly staff willing to help with any question, delicious breakfast and near the centre of it all. They took care of my laundry and had... More

To start with, the place was impeccable and very clean. I stayed at the dorm in a comfortable bed and enjoyed the best shower in a long time. The dorm had lockers for your belonging but they were a bit to small to fit a big backpack, just lock the most important stuff like pass, computer and cash. A good... More

All sorts of services from laundry to tour desk. They are very efficient and try and satisfy, with a smile, all your requests. The female dorm room has got 3 bunks in it and en suite bathroom. Remote to control a/c, big lockers for your backpack and a reading light and power socket for each bed. Breakfast is very basic... More

This was one of the best hostels I stayed in while backpacking around Asia. The rooms and bathrooms were so clean it felt like it was hotel standard. There wasn't much communal space but the guests made the most of it and tried to squeeze in the reception and breakfast area as much as possible. The hostel encouraged the guests... More

Nice and clean hostel, but when I arrived they told me that the Single room that I booked is not available, as they received to many bookings. They wanted to move me to their sister hotel. Apparetly that was obviously a trick as I recognised that they do it many Times and online they offer more single rooms than they... More

I stayed here for 2 nights. I was very happy with the service, staff, and the accommodation! Even though i had a quite difficult time talking to the reception, i felt that they mean the best service. The breakfast was just fine, I had a good time with my roommates. The room was comfortable, the shower room was nice. The... More
