Diep Anh Guesthouse
Ranked #13 of 1,001 Ho Chi Minh City B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 30, 2013

This was our first accommodation in Vietnam and it couldnt have been better. Diep and his wife are so helpful and friendly.

The location is right, smack in the middle of the backpacker district so you can walk to most attractions.

Being in the backpacker district petty crime is fairly prevalent, but you are warned of this every time you leave (if you don't listen that's your own fault)

The guesthouse, has free wifi, cheap mini bar and laundry services and will gladly recommend and organise any activities that you would like to do.

When we return to Vietnam we will definitely be back.

Wow! What an amazing little place. The location is fantastic. It's down this little alley that is full of local life. The room is lovely, bright and clean. It's cheap but most importantly the owners treat you like family. They are sooooo helpful and give you great tips on the city. Quite simply, stay here you will not regret it!

We stayed at Diep Anh Guesthouse from 22-December to 26-December 2012 and it was great! The owners are very helpful - right from the moment you step in to the guesthouse they give you a little introduction on where to go for food and sites. They also offer tours but you can get those everywhere and possibly cheaper if you have a little time to hunt around. The guesthouse is situated in the heart of the backpackers area where you have a great selection of restaurants and places to have drinks at night. All in all good standard of facilities (good clean bedrooms with air con, good clean bathrooms) and really friendly hosts. Definitely recommended!

Diep Anh was our first stop in Vietnam and, even though we arrived very late at night, we received a very warm welcome, a map and helpful advice on places to go and see. The family running the guesthouse are never without a smile and will help with any problems. The water and beer is cheaper than anywhere, even supermarkets and there are computers with internet in the downstairs lobby. Our room, double with A/C and bathroom, was spacious and breezy. There are a few flights of stairs to walk up and the hot water doesn't seem to work but overall, this guesthouse is a great place to stay in HCMC.

HCMC was the last stop on our trip through Vietnam and we could not have finished our trip in a better guesthouse.
The lovely couple who run it are very friendly and helpful. Booking great tours to Cu Chi, or the Mekong Delta, local recommendations on food and sights.... all can be found here.
We received a very warm welcome upon arrival and a very hearty farewell. In between it was simply perfect. The rooms are spotless and spacious with TV, WIFI and fridge to store some food or beverages. The location is very central (District 1), so everything is literally just around the corner or a little walk away. Highly recommended to anyone staying in HCMC who is looking for great value for low money!

Probably the best place we've stayed at in SE Asia. The owners are fantastic, giving us lots of information about sights/ restaurants/ where to go for Christmas celebrations/ where to get a good hair cut. We reserved our room through hostel bookers to ensure we got a room over the christmas period. We stayed one night in their hotel and then we swapped to their 2nd hotel with an elevator that is run by mr dieps sister. We paid $24 a night which we thought was reasonable for the holiday period. The room was equipped with a/c sat tv hot shower and inexpensive mini bar only 11000 for a beer and 3000 for a water. If you want to stay here you will have to book well in advance. We booked one month before due to Christmas (I would do the same around Tet if you are going Saigon then). Conviently located and still very quiet and cosy.

We arrived at the Diep Anh Guesthouse straight off a 16 hour flight. The first thing that impressed us was that they had sent us an email in advance, confirming our reservation and providing helpful details on how to get there without literally "being taken for a ride". This proved invaluable since our (legitimate VINASUN) taxi driver took us to the wrong hotel, and insisted he was correct, before chucking us out into the street with our bags and driving off. Turns out there is another guesthouse just around the corner that has set up with the same " Diep Anh" name. Luckily we knew to look for the "GD mart" shop at the entrance to the alleyway that the correc Diep Anh is in(see the photo we have uploaded) , so we were able to walk along Pham Ngy Lao street until we found it.

The second think that impressed us was the welcome we received. We were sat down and given a map of Saigon, and had all the interesting sights pointed out to us so that we were all set to do our own walking tour the next day, they also recommended a great local place to eat Pho... which was really yummy!

Thirdly the room was much bigger than we had expected, immaculately clean, with a small balcony overlooking the alley, and with decent air conditioning. It was also quiet, but only a short walk (to the end of the alley) to the noisy,crazy, awake all night Bui Vien Street which had some good cheap options for food and drink.

All in all, highly recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor, and if you don't like stairs you might want to choose this room...
