“Staff really makes this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Rooms are clean, staff is incredibly friendly. Rooms are a bit small and some don't have windows but they were very clean which is the most important thing. All the rooms have aircon, a TV with Movie channels and a mini fridge. Plus the water and drinks for sale at the hostel were cheaper than the mini mart which we really appreciated. Location is perfect, walking distance to all the shops, cafes and restaurants as well as the big market and many attractions. Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: As with most buildings in Vietnam where everything is built up, some of the rooms are on the 5th or...

Thanh thuong would have to be the freindlest place i have ever stayed. The prices are very cheap and what you get for your money is, on welcome you are given a nice cold drink and an explainaiton of what to do and see in sagion maps ideas etc on top of that a serviced room cleaned everyday top to bottom comfortable beds, which can be hard to find free wifi aircon tv nice hot shower and to top it off, i felt like nothing was to much to ask a real family run guesthouse. I have stayed here twice now and would never consider staying anywhere else in sagion right in the heart of dist 1 the backpacker area loved loved loved it

Room Tip: all room fantastic

The staff were great - very helpful. Location is good too - close to many attractions and restaurants. Rooms are clean and price is a bargain. The owners thought of nice little conveniences - for example a lending library for travelers - take a book and leave one behind!

Thanh Thuong Guesthouse staff were great! They made us feel right at home. Ideal location right by the main backpacker alley. If you are planning a trip to Saigon, this is a great place to stay. Good value.

I stayed at this place twice, and was made to feel very welcome. The rooms are adequate and the beds clean and comfortable. However, what really makes the place is the people that work there - they're so friendly and helpful! I was taken to find anything I wanted; taken out for dinner and for drinks... T even helped me to find a motorbike when I decided it was time to become a bit more adventurous and ride north, and I found a nice bike at a good price (it's not let me down yet!). I'd definitely stay here again.

Great staff. Bargain room price. Great Wi-fi in the room. Super clean.

The mini bar was cheaper than the local shop.

Open bus tour tickets can be bought here and day trips arranged.

We arrived and were given a refreshing drink and a map and loads of advice of where to go and how and what the costs should be.

We cannot fault this place at all and think it may be the best we have ever stayed at in our whole travelling experience.

Highly recommended and oh you must try the local food stall (back out of the alley to the main road, turn left and it's on the corner, the beef noodle stew is great and the pho is awesome too. Also recommend the curry restaurant near the hotel).

Staff were very helpful from the moment we got there. The rooms were a decent size and clean. Good sized bathroom and good location near the main backpacker street. Close enough to walk to if you get the bus which should drop you at Pham ngu Lao street. This place is just down an alley off the main street. Would recommend it.

Room Tip: If you are not that fit maybe ask for a room on the 1st or 2nd floor.
