Great value
Fantastic staff. Rooms were small, but good value for the price. I was on the ground floor and at times the noise from the street was intrusive.

Great location at a very reasonable price
This is the 3rd time we've stayed here (the first time since being renamed to Meraki) and we wouldn't hesitate in coming back next time we're in HCM. It can get a bit noisy here because you're right smack bang in the middle of the busy backpacker district but that's the price you pay for a very convenient location. Didn't bother us but did bother some others in the group. My strong recommendation would be to pay for the slightly more expensive VIP and Family rooms regardless of how many people are in your group. These rooms are much nicer and only cost a fraction more per night so are well worth the investment. Some tips and tricks - the front desk service is excellent, very helpful, so don't hesitate to ask for assistance to book taxis (to not get ripped off), suggest good restaurants (we tried the Ngon Restaurant and it was brilliant), to arrange cheap same day laundry service (we paid about 10k dong per kg) and book tours (we didn't do this but others did and were happy with price and quality). The Bun Cha restaurant directly across the road was awesome and cheap ($12AUD for dinner and beers), we also booked a 2 day, 1 night Mekong homestay tour at Backpacker Travel tour agency just disengage the road for the grand sum of $77 for 2 people. Pretty touristy but hard to argue with the price. So basically this place is very well located well priced and offers great service for those looking to get the most out of HCM. Would definitely recommend you give it a go!

Dodgy Location & below average room
Offered decent value for money, tidy room and comfortable bed
The hotel is in a backpacker area full of bars. Drunk people everywhere in the evenings and locals offering you everything possible. We checked in at 1AM and found the front desk staff sleeping on a mattress behind the counter. Aircon made a terrible noise and the shower trickled down water. We were glad we only stayed here for 1 night.

nice staying at family room
The staffs are always kind. A family room size is quiet big. The location of Meraki is good for traveler.
The water pressure was quite low but we didn't complain since the staffs are so kind and other room condition was okay enoughly.

3 day holiday
Location, price and staff
I booked a room with a window but they gave me a windowless room, but it turned out fine. When we checked-in the staff at the front desk told us breakfast was not included but I showed them I booked with breakfast so she checked it again and the next morning good thing it was included.

Good value, good location.
Location, cleanliness, value
Good place. In the middle of Bui Vien. Clean, quiet (room towards back), OK shower. Good and helpful staff. Only minus was safe did not work, but staff gave me a key to it so OK. Checked out too early to have breakfast, can't rate food. Will stay there next time.
