Airport pick up was for $16 USD and airport drop off was for $10 USD. The hotel was located at the backpacker's district of Ho Chi Minh and adjacent to the red district street of Do Quang Dao where clubs, bars and restaurants line up the street. It is also very near Papaya and Orange - local clothing stores in... More

Great short stay at this small budget hotel. Reliable and friendly English speaking staff, Tom & Chang will go out of their way to assist and make you feel safe and welcome. Organising tours, laundry, transfers etc with efficiency. Considering the affordable price we would not hesitate to recommend this well located hotel if you are on a budget.

Great location (close to the busy tourist areas but located on a quite alleyway). Friendly staff (happy to help and keen to talk with the customers), nice breakfast (eaten on to of the roof surrounded by orchids above the hustle and bustle below) and decent rooms. Really cool fish tank aswell!

Stayed for 3 nights. I booked for a twin room but they gave me a triple room! Yay! Fastest wifi I had so far, breakfast was enough to jump start the day, and very good customer service from the hotel staff. I will stay again in this hotel if I have the chance. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

The hotel is located in a small quiet alley along Pham Ngu Lao. The room is cosy and comfortable. Especially, the staffs are extremely friendly and helpful. If you travel with a tight budget, I think this is where you are looking for! I will surely come back!

I first came to this hotel by chance. After a long hard journey by bicycle from the central highland of Vietnam, I was deadly tired but I had to go search for a room at reasonable price. When wandering through many streets of Hochiminh City's packacking area, I found this hotel was situated in a small but clean alley that... More

Though the hotel is located in an alley along Pham Ngu Lao, it is easy to find. Kudos to the very accommodating receptionist who took care of us and all our requests. Instead of giving a 5, i only gave a 4 because the hotel failed to coordinate with the outsourced driver my pick-up from the airport, which was at... More

I stayed here on 2 seperate single nights. Everything worked as it should have. Being in a pleasant lane you avoid most of the noise which could trouble other places. Small simple room which was great value for what I paid. Exactly how a buget hotel should be. Tip. Taxi driver will pretend not to know where it was. Luckily... More
