I stayed here for about 4 weeks with my boyfriend in June/ July whilst he was teaching english at a summer school. The family were absolutely lovely and very accomodating. The rooms are cleaned daily and i felt our stuff was very secure! The guest house itself is very basic with no communal areas but the rooms are very well... More

Upon arrival at this guesthouse we were told that we had to leave our passports and they would be taken to the police station and scanned that night and then returned to us after. Passports were returned but I noticed today that pages were REMOVED. Beware staying here and giving your passport as it may be tampered with!!

This place is right in the heart of Pham Ngu Lao, the backpackers area in Saigon. Tons of stuff nearby including a really tasty bakery, laundry and travel agencies, Ben Thanh Market and bus station, and other stuff. Our room was clean, air conditioning worked well as did the wi-fi, we had access to a balcony which was awesome, and... More

Our stay at this guesthouse was nice due to our kind hosts. Phong, a young lady, helped us plan our stay in Ho Chi Minh and guided us to main attractions. We hung out multiple times with her and got to meet her son and mom. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable.

Strangle welcome with really untidy family living area but actually a nice stay. Family were nice and helpful, recommenced good local places to eat and get blind massage. Great location down a bustling alley that was quiet at night. Right in the centre, 20min walk to reunification palace so we avoided using taxis. Lots of food places and night life... More

We stayed in various homestays in Vietnam, and this was the warmest and most 'genuine'. The owner, her daughter and the lady who helps them are lovely people who are happy to chat about themselves and life in Vietnam in general. They gave us recommendations when we asked for them, but never tried to sell us anything, which was very... More

Let me first comment on the good parts of this hotel - the room was large, the bed comfy, the air con worked well and the host and her daughter were very friendly and gave us... More

Really good location in the backpacker area, a lot to do and easy spot to walk elsewhere in the city. The room and bathroom were decent, but the best part were the nice ladies that run the guesthouse. They were so sweet every morning, asking us what our plans were and giving us awesome local advice. We booked a cheap,... More

This place was amazing. We had stayed in a very impersonal hotel in another city, where the staff were always trying to sell us something, and coming here to this homey place with a family that did everything for us to have a good time was very refreshing. We felt great. They were very respectful. If you want to have... More

If you are looking for a great and interesting place to stay, definitely come here. You will be perfectly welcomed in a small house by the family. The localisation is ideal, in the centre with everything near it, yet it is in a very small street so it is very calm. The room is clean and the matress good, we... More
