Stylish, Healthy Saigon that’s Lite on Your Pocket! ROU is a play on “rau”, the Vietnamese word for vegetables. Here you’ll savor delectable vegetarian dishes, and dream away in the restful and stylish More hostel. All this within a few blocks of the thriving Ben Thanh market, backpacker’s area, and picturesque city center. ROU is proud to welcome all cultures and lifestyles. Less
