He brought me to this guesthouse where i had the opportunity to look at the room. The room was proper, bed was okay everything was clean and I had... More

It is a good choice if you want to choose something different from the homestays in the wild island. The owner are really friendly and they serve the best coffee in Vietnam!!! Moreover, they helped us to organize everything (bicycle ride on the island is the top!! the Mekong tour to the market for 12$ 5h starting from 7:30 was... More

Great room for a great price, with a couple cons. We stayed in a double ensuite room on the second floor. Location: Fantastic. Our room and balcony overlooked the bustling market and the Mekong (for a better view of the Mekong you can pay an extra couple dollars for a third floor room). Room: Huge room, including fridge, limited hot... More

I think this place should deserve more review. Nice place with very good internet. Very close to the night market as well as the early local market. Not the best room in the world but clean and comfortable. Not much in town but if I ever visit again I will stay here.

Stumbled upon this place after a hot and weary 5 km walk from where the bus dropped us off. 400k dong for a giant high ceiling two-king-bed room with $1000 view of the river in 2 directions. (Room 4) Good Wi-Fi weak water very helpful staff. We realized upon returning to Saigon that we had left a couple important items... More

Nice location at the riverside. Rooms are spacious but old, and smells really bad (at least the two we looked at). We tried to have the window open for a couple of hours but it didn't make any difference. Someone elses hair was left in the sink but besides that it was clean. The bathroom was nice but we couldn't... More

This very friendly family-run hostel is located at a convenient and exciting location right next to a street market, a karaoke bar and the river side. We could listen to karaoke singers at night and watch the early-morning bustling of the market vendors from our window. Still the room was quiet with closed windows and also very spacious with large... More

There's little accommodation in Vinh Long but this is a basic, no-frills, spotless, cheap, well-positioned guesthouse with about 6 spacious, clean, sparsely furnished rooms with huge floor-to-ceiling windows giving great views of market stalls and river on one side. Despite being on a corner of the riverside road and by part of the market, it was quiet. The loud karaoke... More
