Clean rooms, quiet, friendly and helpful staff, free beer between 6-7pm, tasty banh mi breakfast, great air con in rooms, nice showers and great prices. I have stayed here a lot whilst working in and about Saigon and these are the reasons I keep coming back.

We arrived at the Phan Anh Backpackers Hostel slightly later than expected due to trying to find the hostel. Although it was only a short distance from the centre and the main streets, the hostel is situated down a very small alley that could easily be mistaken, if not looking at the small signs very carefully. Saying that, we were... More

Phan Anh is in a really great location in the backpacker area. There is a bustling market at the end of the street. Very short walk to bustling tourist street. Breakfast is included and cooked to order. A lot of people assume the breakfast would be no good, but it is very high quality. There is free beer every evening... More

Spent 4 nights in a 6 bed female dorm. Great location! By far the cleanest hostel we've stayed in. Switched on helpful staff who understood our needs. Happy hour 6-7 for a free beer downstairs. Only downside is not much of a common area. Would definitely recommend.

I was at Phan Anh over new year and was my first stop in Vietnam. The hostel is very clean and the bathrooms in the dorms are outstanding just like a hotel bathroom, the hostel doesnt have a dedicated social area but everyone drinks in the front entrance during happy hour where you get a free beer. I had a... More

Stayed two nights in a 6 bed dorm, and liked it so much we came back for one more. Very helpful staff, could ask them anything!! Friendly feel to the hostel. Good location just off the backpacker street, no unnecessary noise. Nice, simple breakfast. Good shower, large lockers in the room. On the down side: slightly small rooms, hard mattress,... More

I stayed in a dorm three nights when I first arrived in Vietnam. I also stayed in a private room right before I left for home. It was extremely clean and you had to take off shoes before you went inside. The location was right next to the morning market which made it very cultural and the free breakfast and... More

Excellent place to stay. Staff are warm and friendly and rooms are very clean and secure. Hostel is in a great location, in backpackers district but not right on the main party street so rooms are quiet. Free wifi

I stayed for three nights in a female 6 bed dorm. It was clean, the sheets & towels were changed every day. A/c was good but a fan as well would be awesome! Location was a bit funny- down a weird little alleyway but a very short walk to the bars etc which was great. The staff were not the... More

Close to so much without being in the way of the city. The staff was extremely accommodating, and while there isn't a ton of room for lots of people to hang out, it's better that way. Very charming, and though we did have an issue with extending our stay, they called the hostel across the alley to make sure we... More
