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

This guest house is located in one of the many alleys sandwiched between Pham Ngu Lao street and Bui Vien Street and initially you may find it bit tricky to reach this place. I stayed here for four nights and I was very happy with it. The wifi is bit weak on the 4th floor but after a day I... More
