Ideal little guesthouse

Location, quiet street, friendly hosts
Superb location for exploring Siagon. Very peaceful considering you are in such a busy city. Nice clean comfortable rooms, typical Asian hard beds!

Good location

Location, cleanliness, quiet
This is a pretty basic place with no frills but it is in a perfect spot if a little unusual to us as it is down a lane way. Quiet, calm, clean and cool Was a little surprised room was not serviced over our 3 days but it was pretty cheap

Worth the money

Location, price, nice owner
Good stay on a super good location close to everything. Nice owner as well. Free bottle of water on arrival. Only bad point is that the bed is so hard, it was hard to sleep and woke up with pain... Good for people who wants to save money but if traveling as a couple like us, probably better spend 2-3 more dollars and get a nice bed. We also spent some nights and Youth Hostel in front of Mai Guesthouse and same issue with bed so I guess it is quite the same in all guesthouses in the area.. Note: if you stay in the area please do not go to Go2 bar, such a trap for tourists, and manager so rude with people... Place to avoid !!!

Friendly Homestay

The owner & family; WiFi speed; Location
Spent 4D3N here with 3 other friends. Was surprised there's no elevator and we have to climbed up to 4th floor. If you can't climb so high, probably next time you request for low floor level. The room size is just nice but we didnt see water kettle and hairdryer, probably is upon request. However, at the lobby there's water dispensing machine and you can refill water there. Room cleaning service is also offer upon request. Owner & family is staying there and we always see the friendly grandma at the lobby. She can speak english so if you can't find the owner, probably can ask her. We bought beer (10k dong) and booked Cu Chi tunnel (half day 210k dong including transport & entrance fees) via the owner and also transport to airport (180k dong). If you looking for good food, you can ask the owner to recommend but if you find that is far from the map, take public transport to make it although the owner said is very near to walk.

The guest house is conveniently located.

location. Clean. quiet
We love this guest house as it is conveniently located in an alley yet so much happenings. Near to food stalls, pubs, shops. Good recommendation for budget travellers.

A quiet place in the middle of the city

So close to the market, quiet, great family that runs it.
We loved the big window that overlooked the alley. At first we weren't sure when the taxi driver dropped us off at the front of an alley. But we realized after carrying our luggage through the alley to the hotel - that the location is ideal, because you are away from the noises of the street. We got a really good nights sleep and had such an easy time walking to all kinds of great sights - and the market is a short walk. We will be staying here again. Our kids, 10 & 14 really loved the windo overlooking the alley & the city. The whole wall is a window, with heavy drapes if you want privacy. Nice setup & great family that runs it.
