Nestled in amongst local eateries and other homes, the guesthouse is right in between two main streets which is a perfect spot to be in such a busy city, but it is surprisingly quiet. The rooms here are cosy and well equipped, the wifi is fast throughout, and the owners are so welcoming. Quick laundry service and computers available. Loved... More

Hostel is located at district 1 within the backpackers area. Few meters from the restaurant chains, but quite a distance to ben thanh market. It is a little difficult to find the place as it is located within the block, you have to pass through a very small street going in from the main street (pham ngu lao). It is... More

Stayed for two nights in a standard double with ensuite wet room. The room itself was basic but clean with working air-con. The staff were friendly and welcoming, answering all our questions and booking tours. The breakfast was also good and comprised banana pancakes or eggs served around the dining table with other guests and family. The location up a... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and seems a decent little place. Hosts were helpful, booking a tour for us and always happy to answer questions. The room itself was fine, if not spectacular. Double bed with aircon, although the bathroom was a little dated. Shower wasn't separate, being next to the sink and toilet rather than in its own cubicle.... More

Ngoc is a genie! She and her family, run the guest house and will sort out everything you can possibly need in Saigon. I booked 1 day the first time, ended up staying here for 4 days and then had to come back to Vietnam and there was no question but to choose this. I was having trouble figuring a... More

I really liked staying here. Really very lovely and helpful staff. Nice and clean dorm room and facilities. They provided me with a really nice included breakfast. Lockers provided but no padlocks etc. I would definitely come again. Thank you. :)

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights. We had our own room and bathroom. The room was quite tiny but manageable for two girls. The downside was that our metal bunk beds were very squeaky, but the mattresses were comfy and the sheets were clean. The AC always worked and there was a fan you could turn on... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and would've stayed longer had they had more room. The dorm rooms were $10cdn/night with good AC (4pm - 10am) and excellent wifi. Bathrooms and showers are outside which is a little strange but, you get over that quick. The staff here are awesome. They went out of their way to help us find bus... More

Clean, comfy and reasonably priced rooms with ac, fans and wifi. A simple breakfast (bread and eggs or pancakes) is included as are unlimited water refills which was really useful! We only booked for one night and unfortunately the guesthouse was booked for the following few nights but staff helped us find somewhere else and allowed us to join them... More
