The hotel itself is well-located, although initially hard to find since you'd have to get inside a small alley from 219 Pham Ngu Lao Street. Probably looking lost, a kind man came to us and helped us find the place.

Being walking distance to pick-up points of bus lines for tours such as Mekong Express makes it very convenient for guests. Furthermore, it's just a couple of minutes away (via Cab) from City Tour points, Ben Thahn market, and Saigon square.

Travelling with two other friends, we stayed at the family room.
This room was not that spacious [probably because we had so much stuff =)], but the beds were comfortable and clean. Despite being at the backpacker area, the place was quiet and I can guarantee a good night's sleep.

Most importantly, the comfort room did not disappoint.
It was clean and the space was just right, with hot and cold shower available.

During our stay, it seemed that they were making repairs to the room right beside ours and we could hear the noise from drilling and hammering. Fortunately, it was not during the night, so we did not mind that much. One thing that disappointed is that on our last day, someone people came in to install a hair dryer in the comfort room while were in the room. I wish that they did that after we checked out instead. We could have done without the hairdryer.

As for the food, breakfast was already inclusive in the room rate. The variety of breakfast choices can meet the needs of different customers, with the taste being average. Just enough to get you going for the day. I compliment them for their coffee (strong tasting coffee..just the way i like it) and milk, which we enjoyed.

A good hotel overall where you can say you got the value for your money. :)

The rooms smell very good. I had the chance to visit their 3 rooms of different standards, from no-window room to twin and double bed room with window. So, bear in mind, they might not share the same hardware appliances. But the 3 are all very practical and comfortable rooms. The location is a bit difficult to locate, but you ust head to the shop No 219 along the busy Pham Ngu Lao street, beside the 219 shop, there is a small lane leading to the "8A" which you turn right of this lane. HCM has good postal address system, I think.

Staff so sweet and courteous, family run business. Is very convenient for me to take the many express buses to Phnom Penh. Selection of restaurants and bars nearby.

Room tip: Well, there is no much view even if you pay for window rooms. I rather have complete darkness for a good day and night sleep, choose the no-window and is cheaper.

We stayed here for 4 night with an interval during our mekong delta tour. Rooms were a bit smelly and the carpet was wet due to 'i don't know what'. Beds were comfortable however and quiet, knowing the hotel is in the middle of the backpacker area.
Service in the hotel is great. You could really ask everything to the staff! Breakfast is average.
