Host friendly, tapi kasi room yang lain daripada yang aku booking. Booked 2 family rooms tapi dapat 1 family room and 1 4single beds room. No elevator walaupun stay in 5th floor. Lokasi yang strategik.

Great. Very clean and reasonably priced. Awesome location in district 1. Got in close to midnight and was greeted by the manager. Super friendly. My room has a view and a balcony. Just the tops of buildings but still!

The location is nice and the room is comfortable but stinks from the mould !! Then on the next day where I needed to check out on 12:00. They woke me up on 10:00 knocking on the door claims that they need to clean the room now !!!! So rude, they could have said that the day before. But reading...

Stayed here for two nights and enjoyed our stay. The staff very friendly and we were allowed to check in early on our first day which was much appreciated. You get what you pay for here - our room was small, and there wasn't really a 'window', but it was clean and a fine base for exploring HCMC.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Staff were pleasant and welcoming. Room was spacious but not clean, the walls were dirty, bed linen was not clean (one would even question was it washed since the previous guests!), most significantly the room was infested with ants...they were literally everywhere in the room. I would not recommend this guesthouse, we stayed in cheap...

Booked rooms for 14 of us from Singapore. Had to make last minute arrangements and the host, a fatherly figure, was willing to comply and go out of the way to help us. He helped us to book sleeper bus tickets for 14 in which we wanted to change it to 11 just 3 days before. On the second night,...

Decent room. Was clean and air conditioning worked very well. In a great location for backpackers especially, central district 1. What made our stay was the owner who was very friendly and extremely helpful. Told us good places to eat and see, and organised taxis for us.

I booked for a night for two people for myself and my girlfriend before we left Saigon. I arrived earlier than my girlfriend who was working. No problems till she arrived and they subsequently refused to let her stay, in Vietnamese they essentially accused her of being a prostitute. The staff were aggressive and threatening so we paid for the...

My boyfriend booked this place for both of us for one night. His plane arrived first so clearly he checked in before while I came in late.
