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.

This hotel was well located just off Bui vien im the backpackers district. It was down a dark little alleyway which was a bit of a worry at first, but fine. We arrived late and the shutters were partly closed over. However the reception was still open. The staff were very friendly and helpful. When we saw our room, we... More

My son and I stayed here for 1 night. The location is perfect. It is up a laneway so reasonably quiet. Restaurants and bars just out the door.The place is spotlessly clean as was our room. Our room was quite small but we had a double and a single bed and sufficient space with our back packs. Bathroom good with... More

We spent 2 nights here and it was good. The owner speak very good English and the wife speaks very good Chinese and the whole family are very friendly. The rooms and bathroom are clean. Although it is at the end of the alleyway, the alleyway remains bright even after 10 pm. The bread served for breakfast is the nicest... More

Located in a small road along a busy street, I need not face the crowd and heavy traffic... This is quite important for me because the Saigon street is always so busy until late night... However, the tourist spots are within walking distance.. Thanks to the owner for providing us with maps and explain the details for us.. The room... More
