Great location, near restaurants and convenience stores. The owner personally takes care of things. He's very friendly and accommodating and speaks good english. There's bread and coffee or tea for breakfast. Not fancy at all, but very good value for money.

The owner is a pleasant man who speaks very good English his wife a lovely lady speaks none. Both are middle aged people. The Hostel is newly built and of a very good standard of finish, the bathrooms are just the same as if you where in a newly built home in Australia. The Wifi is strong and free and... More

Great location in District 1. Very quiet and very clean. The family room was perfect for the four of us. We are a family traveling the world (collinsworldclass.com). The owners were kind, communication was easy and the price was right. The internet was excellent and the breakfast a nice touch.

Phan's guest house is well situated in district 1 between Ben Thanh market and the river in the tourist/backpacker area. Room was clean and comfortable and even had English language tv channels. Although the house is in a very busy area, the room was remarkably quiet. My host, Phan, was gracious and very helpful and my only regret was not... More

The room was basic but had all you needed. It was clean and the staff and owners very friendly. They offer a complimentary breakfast but I can't comment on it because we ate somewhere else. The room was very quiet even though the hotel is right in the middle of all the backpacker/tourist action. So location is great. I'm giving... More

Basic but all you need. Friendly family run business, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is basic but sufficient. The location is fantastic, in an alley in backpacker area where there is plenty of action, bars and restaurants. Advice in English if you need it.

We were planning our trip to Saigon for our young family of 4. We stumbled upon this place online and on a bit of a whim decide to go for it as it was so cheap and smack bang in the right place - we were aiming for the tourist area as its central to everything and we only had... More

nothing fancy, clean and good. good breakfast, nice manager. We asked them to arrange transportation for us from the airport as we came late. so they did at 20$ ( for 5 people- 3 young kids). Bigger car would probably cost more.

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed our time at the guesthouse.It is perfectly located, just off the main backpacker street but is,importantly, down a little alley meaning that the rooms are quiet. The room was clean and spacious and great value for money. A simple eggs & bread breakfast but plenty to start the day with. Would definitely... More

We have stayed 2 nights in this hotel. The owner is very helpful. Although there is no elevator, he uses a pulley block to get the luggage on the right floor. No struggeling with heavy luggage on the stairs. The rooms are clean and free of outside street noise. The bathroom is very nice with a shower cabin.
