This is a perfect place to stay in the heart of the backpacker area of Saigon. We booked a family room via booking.com for $33 a night and couldn't have chosen better. We were surprised to see that it was a two-star hotel upon arrival, we've definitely stayed in much worse hotels with a higher star rating. The main advantage if this hotel is, apart from being very clean and spacious, with an amazingly helpful staff, that it is slightly off the main road and is very quiet, which is a bonus in Ho Chi Minh!!!! The reception staff are very helpful and will arrange taxis and recommend guided tours for you. On the first floor there are four computers for the guests to use - without charge, too - and there is free wi-fi in all the rooms. Another reviewer has mentioned the four-way showers, which are just perfect after a hot, sticky day wandering around the city!!! The only slight grumble would be about the breakfasts, which were included in the price, but consisted of rolls with a cheese triangle or a portion of jam and watered-down orange juice, served at a snail's pace!!! But its only a minor grumble - for the price we really shouldn't have expected better - and there are certainly enough cheap options within a few minutes walk, including the excellent Allez Boo, which has also been previously mentioned. We'll be back in Saigon next year and we will definitely book this hotel again
