    The cleaner was the most welcoming of all, even if she didn't speak English, we would always find a way. Had some small matters with the reception as the most important thing for them was out payment rather than our accommodation. Fairly clean place but high price for its value

    Good Value for money and spacious Room”
    I booked a room where it indicate the room comes with lounge access. However when I checked with the staff, they don't understand there is such a item provided. The lounge access is just a small area at the hotel lobby. Probably they should remove that lounge access to avoid confusion. Their room are spacious compared to other hotels with similar pricing. You probably have to take a taxi or walk about 15 to 20 mins to the backpackers area. The staffs are friendly and courteous. I do recommend this hotel. considered value for money.

    tried to charge extra fee without first approving it the night before - not honest!”
    Compass Joy Living is a nice little hotel, and I lived there for 2 years before it was taken over by the current management company. However, last night the mattress was just too hard, I don't mean firm, I mean rock-hard that hurts the back. So, I asked the night clerk for a roll-away-bed to use instead of the queen sized bed. He brought one and it was nothing great but better than the hard bed I would have had to use. However, when I was checking out the morning clerk/manager told a Vietnamese friend that had come to meet me, in Vietnamese not English, that I owned an extra 250,000 VND for the extra bed. I told him that no way I would have taken the roll-away bed if I was informed there was an extra charge. But he said "Sir, the maid saw it in your room..." Of course she did, the other desk clerk brought it to me, I wasn't trying to hide anything. Anyway, I refused to pay the "extra charge," first time in my travels this has happened, and immediately left the property...

    All good from staff to room. However a hotel/apartment is sharing with owner home and sound proof is not what you expected so sometimes you may hear unexpected noise. Room is spacious but there is only 1 aircon at the far side of your bed, so you have to compromise for too cold at living room to have right temp. at your bed area.

    arriving early get ready to pay extra 😇”
    When I booked my room I had specified that we would be arriving at 9.00AM. (Hotel policy is check in at 2.00 PM) My request was accepted but when we arrived after the full night journey at the hotel, the receptionist wanted us to pay half day extra because we were checking in early. I was really without any words, tried to convenience them but finally had to pay half day extra for checking in on day but few hours early. I have never seen this have you? Avoid these kind of rip off places.

    Have plan to come back”
    The hotel is off the busy road and some taxi drivers had problem finding the place. This offers some privacy and quiet if you don't mine taking the luggage and walk 30 feet. The young staff were extremely helpful in every way they could and we felt like at home. One big plus is the hotel charged $1 per pound for laundry, which is unheard of in my entire life of business travel, and that was the same day service if we wanted. The only cons is we couldn't find a good English channel on TV and all local programs were low-res. That was not our problem as we were busy sampling local cursine in many restaurants just minutes away. The prices were very reasonable comparing to downtown eateries. We tried a seafood buffet one minute walk away and you could have all food you can BBQ yourself to eat and beer to drink for $10 USD! Not the gourmet type but you cook the food your self so you are to blame if it doesn't turn out good😀

Helpful, supportive and very friendly. BF delivered to the room every morning in time. Taxi organised by the hotel without any issues. Only negative point is the slow internet and the location is a bit putside if you need to be close to the center. On the other hand it is very close to backpacker area to chill in the evening.

    I will recommend this Hotel very highly to everybody. The rooms are more spacious than the other hotels we stayed at in HCMC and there is in-room served breakfast, so you don't have to quickly get dressed and rush to a dining area to get your breakfast in time! If we needed a taxi it was quickly sorted and they even help by telling the taxi driver where you would like to go. The location is near to the Ben Thanh Market, Bui Vien street, the Co.op Supermarket, restaurants and bars all are just around the corner.

The hotel is located away from main streets but close to the center (20 min of slow walk) and just ~10 min from main parks.

    Hmmmm,first of all, the staffs are very kind and friendly, this was good things, but they have serious problems. When I went to room, I can some bad smell, but I still could bear it. But when I went to restroom, they have serious smell like from sewer. I feel disgusting every time when I go to restroom. And however, real problem was the last day. When my mom went to restroom in the morning, she saw a mouse in the restroom, she freaked out. It was horrible!!!!! I saw 3 rats on the street, so should I guess rats are common here?
