Convenient location for short stay
location, affordable, friendly staff
We booked this hotel mainly due to its short distance along Pham Ngu Lao road, in fact it was only across the road from where our bus from Mui Ne dropped us. Most buses depart/arrive at that area thus making it convenient for travellers on the road who may want to rest for just a couple of nights. There are a few restaurants/bars/cafe near the hotel as well, and it's a 7-10mins walk away from Ben Thanh Market. It tends to get a little noisy at night with the music blasting from the bar just beside the hotel. The hotel itself isn't newly renovated, but it's equipped with air-conditioning, fan, a tv, fridge and even warm water for shower. Overall affordable for budget travellers and reasonable for its price.

will never stay again
they seemed nice at the first beginning, but later on charged me a high price than other agents when I booked my air tickets via them, which was fine. But what pissed me of is that when I checked out, they charged me 7 USD more. I asked why, they didn't answer me. Then I insisted asking for the reason, they said it's because I slept with another guy so they charged for the extra fee. But I SLEPT ALONE!! and finally they refunded me even they were unwilling. They refunded me less than the extra fee that they charged me. What's worse, they forgot to return me my passport. In that case I had to take a taxi going back to the hostel and grab my passport. My friend asked me "didn't they pay you the taxi fee? It's apparently their fault to not remembering to return the passport." No, they didn't.

Real Value
Polite staff, superb location, affordable
Excellent! Planned to stay here for just a night but extended my days at the hostel. Lots of pubs, tours n food around the place. Easy to get here from the airport via bus #152. Met very interesting people too... Do try the place!

worst hostel ever
oh. let me see how i begin.... the toilet is full and you cant even flush it down with its flusher. oh not to mentioned the fans in the room . before you reach the mix dorm , you had to climb 7 level of stairs. yes 7 level, but good thing i've been to the army before to be fit enough to do that. the beds are dirty. it smells and yea a fire broke at the bar beside us. in the middle of night smoke filled our hostel room and we had to fight for our life to not take in those smoke. and downstairs at the bar? its just chaotic. fire truck came 30mins later after almost everything is burned down with total darkness in the whole neighbourhood.

excellent location, friendly staff
tourist office
City centre and if you need quietness this is not hotel for you. There is a club across the street, and restaurant/bar next door. Hotel is in the middle of everything, so if you want nightlife it could be your choice. Reception is open till 22h so you might see closed door if you arrive late. Hotel is not very clean, but not dirty also. Daily cleaning rooms. Staff is friendly, helpful, speaks English. There is travel office in front of reception desk.

Vinh Hostel
nothing really.
let me start off by saying that this place is ok. but it is not the place in the pictures. there is no common room and the actual rooms are way older than in the pictures. when i confronted the lady, she giggled and said no the pictures aren't the same and tried to switch us to a "better" room. it was not better...the shower door was broken and it was really noisy. we already paid so we stayed anyway and it was fine. nothing special. don't expect the pictures. the place pictured is saigon backpackers hostel around the corner. way better.

Close to everthing, but loud at night
Central, Night Life, and Easy to find
It was good, but we ended up in a room where there were music playing until 2am next door. Make sure to request a quite room. Some of the rooms are old and it needs fix, bathroom aren't as clean. Best part of this hotel is it's close to everything.
