Good place to stay if you're on a budget but prefer to have your own room! Very helpful and hospitable staff, important for me as a first time solo traveller. It is located in the midst of the backpacker area but down a quiet side street away from all the noise. Room/toilet was clean, air conditioning worked fine etc. Thanks... More

The hostel is located in a sideway near the main backpackerroad pham gam lao. Due to its location its very quiet. The room was small but that doesnt matter as the price is very fair. The staff is helpfull and booked tours to the cho chi tunnels for us. We also got free coffee and juice when we arrived home... More

Small no star hotel with 6 star service. Very helpful staff giving good recommendations for restaurants and trips. Breakfast basic and western but well cooked. Perhaps they could add fruit to the menu.

The hotel is ideally located 500 meters away from the biggest park in Saigon which is also a Tourist Bus Terminal. As well it is just minutes away from one of the busiest street for restaurants and bars (Duong Bui Vien). The rooms are not spacious but size is quite acceptable. Rooms are clean, beds are comfy. It is a... More

Of all the places we've stayed in Southeast Asia, Hello Hotel was by far the cleanest. The staff were friendly, though they did freak us out a bit when they initially said they needed to take our passports for when police come - a misunderstanding, and they took down our details and returned our passports without incident. Despite that, I... More

I have been here multiple times. Price are decent and room too. Not lift though, and breakfast is really basic. Staff friendly enough. Location is kind of perfect because it is in the main action area, however a bit hidden so you wouldn't be bother with the noise. If I go back to saigon again for long time and with... More

We stayed here for four nights and found it to be a great place. The staff were exceptionally helpful and its location, in the heart of the backpackers area, was ideal to get anywhere in the city. Breakfasts were plain but satisfying and the rooms were well kept and cute. Only slight quibbles were that it lacked soundproofing so any... More

Hello Hotel is a boutique hotel with rooms that are so aesthetically pleasing that you wouldn't know whether you have walked into an art gallery or a budget hotel! Rooms are of modest size but at an excellent price. I have stayed in various other hotels in Ho Chi Minh city that have roughly the same daily price; however, none... More
