The hostel its self was cheap but very nice with comfortable beds and spotless bathrooms. Each room had ac and a TV. I stayed here on two separate occasions and would stay here... More

My partner and I had the most amazing experience staying here. The owners/ family of the hostel were the most welcoming and sincere people who always went out of there way to make us feel comfortable during our stay. It's a cheap stay that's located in the heart of the backpackers district tucked away in a quite back alley away... More

We ended up staying here for a week in a double room, it was clean with hot showers and air con. Breakfast was simple but tasty, bread, eggs, cheese and a banana - really set you... More

This is one of the best places I've stayed in my toe months of travel! It was like staying at a family members house. The staff was so nice and helpful and breakfast was great ! It was such a nice break from having to negotiate prices or get stuck with a crappy 'free breakfast '. I wish I could... More

We ended up just staying outside the guesthouse in small chairs drinking beer/chatting with Mimi or her brother in law and other backpackers staying there. This is... More

Not only that it is a family run establishment - the family itself is quite a hospitable one. Members are most friendly and very much at your disposal on any matter. Free and delicious breakfast is served from the family kitchen - one of the best Phos I tasted in Vietnam. Don't be surprised if you are offered a free... More

The guesthouse is quite easy to find IF you head down the right alleyway - 84 hem Bui Vien will lead you straight to the guesthouse. The address given here isn't right. It's 84/40 Bui Vien. Alleyways are numbered from the street number they intersect, so the alleyway is next to 82 and 86 Bui Vien. Hem 84 continues through... More
