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.

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.

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...
