The location is perfect, right in the center of the life of Bui Vien street. The thing I enjoyed most of all, was the friendliness of the...

We stayed three nights with them. They are very nice and friendly. The room is ok & clean. The location is very strategic as it is only a few minutes walk to the main bus stop. Thirty minutes walk to tourist attractions. Affordable price. Good for backpacker & friends.

There are those two kind and happy women at the reception that will always help you in any situation, for example if the taxi driver wants to scam you, you can call then and they will argue for you. Good hostel standard room with own bathroom and breakfast. The only bad thing is, that it is located in Bui Vien...

Thank you for a great Ho Chi Minh experience! We love you Ms. Huong Lam and all your staff! You are the coolest owner whom I've known! Please, send our regards to that Cute Guy who offered us to bring us to China Town. More so, the room rates are super affordable, it's like getting more than what you're paying...

The staff here are really friendly but the accommodation is NOTHING like the pictures. If you are looking for something cheap and in a good location this is the place. But be warned! We booked 3 double beds and ended up with singles, had a leaking aircon, broken shower and it wasn't very clean. The owner is super friendly though!
