clean hotel, shine rooms - compare to the other hotels in the street, I think one of the best. If you go to Saigon in the low season, you can bargain about the price of the hotel room. For example we got the big, double bed, shine room for 25 dollars included breakfast. ( However the breakfast was so poor,..)...

This was a nice place to be compared to the other accommodations on the same street. Of course it cost a bit more than the others but therefore it's worthwhile to pay that money. It got a little too hot downstairs at the breakfast area as there are only fans (one or two…). It’s a very simple breakfast, two menus...

I am not aware of any other hostel in Saigon, but I can confirm that my stay at Giang Son was really one of the best during my month trip in South East Asia. Rooms are simple but clean and comfortable. I used the airport pick-up service which was very practical considering Vietnam's scams and my arrival late at night....

The local security guard tried to charge us to guide us 50 yards, but the owner greeted us with a welcome drink and advice, and helped us arrange transport at every turn. The rooms were comfortable, air conditioned and clean.

This review regard Giang Son 2, on same street at Giang Son 1 AVOID GIANG SON 2 UNTIL THEY FINISH THEIR CONSTRUCTION INSIDE Seems like it would be a nice guesthouse and everything inside is nice for budget travelers. The issue: they are constructing new rooms in the hotel while still operating the hotel. I booked for three nights and...

Top rated by LP? really? I found this place to be indifferent, down an alley jammed with scammers, touts, drunks, burned out expats. There is no security here so carry your valuables with you when out. Also, expect to be hassled on then road and all prices are 2X anywhere else in VN (water, snacks, etc.). Room was okay, a/c...

We spent our last night at this hotel, and the service was excellent. Free breakfast, clean, spacious rooms with en suite bathroom (also very clean and good), air conditioner, and yummy coffee! Our hosts were so friendly and informative, and the atmosphere was relaxed, really great. If you don't mind stairs, ask for a room right on the fifth floor....

Very very friendly, family-run establishment. The receptionist was super-helpful and welcoming. Great location down a side-alley, right in the centre of Siagon, just next to the central park. Highly recommended.

Newer hotel in the middle of the backpacker area. Lots of hawkers pushing you to buy their trinkets all around the area. Staff was friendly and nice. Breakfast left something to be desired. Small ants were crawling all over the sugar bowl and bread. Pretty unapetizing. However, the eggs made to order were good. We booked late so we got...

The hotel is centrally located in the backpackers area in District 1. It is around 10-15 minute walk to Ben Than Market, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office. The room which we booked thru Agoda was immaculate. The meals which was included in our booking was basic which consisted of eggs, baguettes, bananas, coffee and juice. The hotel...
