Not a good choice for family with children
Location
Good location, facility is quite old, not very comfortable, staff was very nice. we have stayed 3 days, they do not clean the room during our stay. It is not good for family with kids.

Beyond awesome hostel in Saigon
The staff
We stayed four nights at this hostel. The staff is the definition of friendly. One day we were leaving really early to join a tour and they packed our breakfast to not leave with an empty stomach. They also printed our tickets back home and let us leave our backpacks at their storage room on our last day. Room was really clean and we felt comfortable all the time. The hostel is located in a busy street full of bars and restaurants but since it is in an alley you hardly hear what is going on outside. We would definitely stay again here if we return to HCMC.

A hidden gem in District 1
The Ngoc Phan Guest House is clean, cool, quiet but located in a great location.
This is the second visit to Ho Chi Minh city and we stayed here last time as it is fantastic value for money. When you are in your room it is so quiet you would not think you were in the heart of District 1. The family are very obliging and friendly, rooms clean and because it is located at the end of a lane it is also very quiet. It is a great location so when you step out onto the street you are at the heart for both shopping and pop up bars at night. This will always be our choice when visiting Ho Chi Minh.

Great place to stay in backpackers district
Clean Hotel, Friendly Staff, Great Location!
The hotel is very clean and the staff very friendly. The location is right in the heart of the backpackers district but manages to be just far enough off of the main strip that it is very quiet and relaxing within the hotel. I would highly suggest this hotel to anyone that wants to stay in that area, especially for the price!

nice staff, clean room, good price
staff, location, price
Very nice young man to show us to our room. Was able to speak good English. Room was clean, not much of a view but worth the price. Breakfast was quite basic but fresh. Arranged a day trip, via the hotel staff, to see the Cu Chi tunnels and wasn't disappointed. We didn't have to pay for our trip until checkout. Kind of hard to find hotel.. we took airport public bus 152 ($1 for 2 people) from ground level across from BK upon arrival. Takes about 30 mins to get to bus station near Ben Thanh market. Then walked about 15 mins to hotel on Bui Vien. Once on foot be very cautious crossing ANY STREET, or you will be a goner eh! Once you find the civic number on blue overhead banner then enter the small alley. Ngoc Phan is at end on right. HINT... download an offline copy of Saigon on Google maps app, you can use GPS and track yourself on your journey. We did and it was probably the best idea we had the entire trip.

Basic , fantastic, clean, spacious for family of 4
The owners English was great! The young chap Lung at the front desk was especially helpful and transparent , his English was really good. In fact with his help we could plan everything !
Really good for families, but anyone really. They help with any plans you need help with , they phone ahead and help you make bookings , they arranged a great motorbike tour with a trusted driver for a normal price ... All in all they are one of the few places that don't try to rip you off and really go out of their way to help you without being intrusive. I cannot recommend them enough ! If you are on a budget and want to be in the thick of it in a clean, honest facility then go no further. Please feel free to contact me if you require further information or contact details .
