“Friendly, clean and comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Linh Guesthouse became like a second home to me while i waited for a visa extension..
The family running it went out of their way to make me feel welcome, safe and looked after. I was sad to leave and shared a few laughs and conversations with down to earth staff during my time there.. In my 6 weeks in Vietnam this was among the friendliest and best value places I found.
It was a relief to return to some familiar smiling faces when I returned to Saigon.
The staff also took care of my bag for 3 weeks and found me a nice room to stay when there was no vacancy upon my return. I will book ahead next time as a better value place in this area is hard to find.

I stayed in a quiet double, equipped with fridge, tv, air con, fan, desk, window, wi-fi internet, and ensuite bathroom.. It was a cool refuge from the heat of the city, and was also cleaned daily.
In a great location down a quiet alley in the Pham Ngu Lao area, only steps away from the more hectic streets.

While I didn't enjoy the city so much, this was one of the more memorable places I stayed in Vietnam.. Highly recommend!

The hotel is located in a (quiet) side street of the backpacker area. 
Our room was quite small and didn't have a window with view (just some concrete wall 40 cm ahead) but for that it was 2$ cheaper.
The bathroom is clean and "Vietnam style" (the shower head is in the middle of the bathroom with no curtain).
The wifi was fast but sometimes not stable. I think at a lower floor it should work fine.
The A/C was one of the newest I have ever seen in Vietnam and it did a great job! There was a TV and Fridge which we didn't use. Generally the room was in good condition with very intact furniture. The beds are quite hard but thats the way I like my bed. We didn't see any bugs at all which is a surprise in Saigon!
The guy at the reception, I think his name was Drung, was extremely nice and helpful. When I was sick he often came by and asked if I needed any help and he organized a SIM card for me to call home. 

We payed 5$/person for a 2 bed room. Generally we can recommend this hotel as it was the best of the 3 hotels we tried.

Smack bang in the centre of HCMC. Really close to the backpacker centre but off on a quiet side street so basically no noise. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was cleaned everyday and sheets changed also!

Air con, hot water shower, fan, fridge, cable, 12$. Absolute gem!
