            Nice quiet spot in the middle of the downtown area”

            Nice staff, clean rooms, good location

            We had a good stay at 4 boys, staff was friendly and helpful. All the rooms don't have balcony, fridge etc so if you have special wishes better to confirm. Room was clean and comfy and everything worked well, just for wifi we needed to go to the lobby or to the stairs. Location is great, in downtown but away from the noise. Check out the rooftop, nice views.

            central, clean, quiet

            right in the middle of the backpacker area but surprisingly VERY quiet at night. the quietest hotel we tried in HCMC and we've been here nearly a month trying quite a few. Staff very friendly and perfect english. Owner is Vietnamese-Canadian and very nice. Would have stayed here longer if we would've known how good it was. Definitely recommend it. Lots of restaurants nearby, but a little expensive since in the tourist area. Excellent price for hotel and what you get. VERY clean.

            Staff, location, price

            The price & location were super, and Harry and the rest of the staff were very, very nice and helpful. Laundry was cheap and quick, and drinks in the cooler downstairs were a great price. A couple drawbacks: you can hear the music pumping from the next street over until after 1 AM some nights, and all of the bathrooms on one side of the building share a common central venting column, so you can hear everything that everyone is doing in the bathroom (including yelling to their roommate).

            Excellent. Comfortable. Hospitable.”

            Location, price, room size

            Excellent. Tony and Harry made my stay very comfortable. They showed me the best pho and coffee in the area and organized all my tours and the taxi back to the airport with ease. Room was large and bed was comfortable. Made my stay very hospitable and felt very comfortable knowing they were looking after me.

            The staff was super nice and helpful

            I think this is the best budget guest house to stay in the area. Room was clean,AC, wifi, good shower. I would stay here if i come back to HCMC

            family staff, trendy rooms, great alley off the backpacker strip

            we didn't think a thing until we were walking up and wondering as two American girls, "will we be the only women?" nope. couples. men, women, everybody. super inclusive, great family taking care of you. stiff beds like the best of asia. hot showers, cheap beer back packer strip. great cheap food outside either end of the alley and a cute little lady in pajamas next door that will stand with you while you drunkenly eat your dollar noodle/omelette at two am to protect you from purse snatchers (real fear! be ware!) great stay!

            good location”

            only good thing is location, staff not very helpfull or friendly, they see this place as a money machine by passing through tourists. The other annoying thing was that every time one left the room, the fuses were switched off, so if one came back and no one was at reception there was no electricity in the room as the main fuse had to be switched on

            4 Boys Hotel (FOR EVERYBODY)”

            Location

            Staff was friendly and accommodating. Harry took very good care of us during our stay by helping us map out our sightseeing tour (which was done entirely on foot). Location is excellent as it is just 50-100 meters away from Pham Ngu Lao while being completely isolated from the noise of the area. Highly recommended for younger travelers.

            Bad service”

            Location, place in the city, site

            First, the room given to us didn't look like the one in the picture. Second, no toothbrush, toothpaste . Third, AC is controlled by the hotel so when they forget to turn on, lots of stairs to climb down and up for the fifth floor. Fourth, dont ask to call taxi to airport for you, by 20% (should take you 140k, not 170k). Fifth, it's like because we're only stayed for one night, the service went down by a lot of notches. Staff didn't feel friendly. Even with the cheap price, we felt it didn't worth it.

            Vanilla”

            Location

            It's a pretty vanilla hotel, nothing sticks out good or bad, which is probably a good thing. No tour buying hassle and a quiet location in a busy part of town. Your stay will be as quiet as your neighbors. Due to the design you do hear everything from your neighbors, even with the bathroom door closed.

            Good accomodation & good staff”

            I booked by agoda, but the staff said my booking sent to booking.com. I knew this, when they asked me to pay before left the hostel, I thought i have paid by credit card. But in polite way, the staff asked me to checked my balance/history of my credit card, and it's true i didn't pay yet, so I should pay by cash that time. Maybe agoda should check how it can be happened, because the staff said it happened several times with his guests. I promised to coming back to this hostel before my departure to Kuala Lumpur, but I didn't do that because I was mixed up with my itinerary and was in hurry to get my flight.
