Price, Room facilities, Location
It was a nice experience. I am a backpacker and I value my money a lot, so for me, everything that the room offered to me is too much. I was surprised that the room also has a refrigerator aside from actv. I also like that there's like a small veranda that will allow you to see what's happening outside. I just stayed on the 2nd floor, so I really had a good wifi connection. I really enjoyed my stay there. The location is also near the road where you can find lots of stores for your supply needs. For improvement, it would be better that the MANAGER (the small guy with short arms) should be more approachable and pleasant. He should SMILE more often to the customers. Don't get me wrong, he was okay, but you don't feel that he's happy that you chose Thanh guesthouse. I don't know, maybe because I am also an Asian that's why he's like that, and let's face it, their treatment to Caucasians is better. Good thing he can communicate in English. And also, if they are asking their customers to practice their beliefs, they should have informed the customers before they start lodging, not on the last day. Over-all, I will still choose Thanh.

thanh guesthouse 1 at HCM

the owner
i've booked this thanh guesthouse hotel for 1 night only as my travel mate decided to stay for only 2 days at Ho Chi Minh City. however, later on, we've decided to stay for one night more so we've surveyed another hotels or guesthouses around the backpackers area to compare the prices. since the price for thanh guesthouse for one more night is the cheapest, so we've decided to stay there. the room is nice and comfortable and the owner is friendly (eventhough she barely speaks english). but, the toilet is a bit too small and the location is pretty difficult to find.

overall decent stay

location good, price good, location
overall relatively good stay there, location is very good, in an ally away from the noise. lots of stairs and the wifi didn't work in room(router is on main floor) are the only issues with rooms. staff was friendly and honest. most rooms were empty when we stayed so it's not a social place, just a quiet, clean, safe place to sleep. really close to all the bars/eateries and other hostels

Basic, simple no frills stay

Price, Location and Proximity
Overall an ok experience for a budget stay. Price was really value for money in this particular area. Only complaint was that the towels and bedsheets in the room was not changed everyday. and no lifts was a bummer considering that my room was on a higher floor.

Sweet owner, nice quiet place

Staff, location, clean
We enjoyed our stay here. It's a little difficult to find because it's in one of the million alleyways of District 1, but it's also quiet because of that. Nice room...no windows, but clean and had private bathroom. TV with lots of English channels and good AC, hot water, and towels. Owner is really nice and friendly. There was a padlock on the door when we tried to go out for water late at night, but I think that's what the phone downstairs is for and there are always people on the corner if you come on late to let you in. Would stay here again.

Backpacker budget hotel , nothing special.

It was clean and comfortable room
Just an overnighter for easy access to the airport. It is close to the airport bus line and right in the middle of the nightlife area of hcmc . The room was clean an the beds comfortable no deal here you got what you paid for.

Clean room in the center of Bui Vien

clean, location, price
There are three Thanh Guesthouses side by side. The Thanh Guesthouse, Thanh Guesthouse 1 and Thanh Guesthouse 2. They all look the same and i think its from the same owner. We booked Number 1 and stayed in Number 2. But this doesn't matter. The rooms are clean with fan and A/C. Because its located in the middle of Bui Vien its quite noisy the hole day and night. Furthermore the familiy is living in this Guesthouse. The young children are yelling and screaming the hole day. Altogether its a good Guesthouse for those who want to enjoy the nightlife of Saigon.
