    Clean and nice, bed was uncomfortable”
    + VERY near to the loud party-bar-walking street + despite that it is silent in the rooms, good for sleeping. Only bass frequency from the bars can be heard + good AC + old school 50Hz tube TV :-) + dated but clean bathroom + free toiletries (toothbrush, soap, shampoo etc) - the mattress is an old and saggy spring bed (ouch). I was lucky there were two beds in the room.

    Okay, but not again”
    I stayed for one week. We came early in the morning and tried to check in. I messaged them before and they accepted it. Unfortantly a sleepy guy opened the door and told us we have to pay 15 USD because of this early check in. This was new for us, because we couldn't find the information in the internet or in the answer. The room was really simple but okay. In the fridge was an old fruit and some juice which really stinked. The bathroom was good except the fact that you can only have a hot shower during the day. In the morning, evening and night it was always cold. The breakfast is simple but delicious. I can really recommend the omlet. Unfortunatly, they don't offer a laundry service, but because of the great location we could easily find another place. Even if it was really friendly and a nice stay, i would choose another place for the next visit.

    Wonderful budget hotel”
    Came here for one night after another place in HCM. Rooms are big, they actually have a glass, separated shower instead of the toilet/shower combo. The staff is super friendly, breakfast was ample, had eggs a small load of bread, bananas and coffee. Laundry price is a little high, so we went to another place the next night and regretted it, came back here the following day. The air didn't work in our room, so they upgraded us. It is far enough down an alley that the sound of the main party street barely reaches the room. Beds are old, but decent, same as sheets and so forth. Best we have found for the money. I would recommend anyone to stay here who wants a room under $20.

    Guesthouse on best location in the middle of backpackers district (1) in HCMC. It is located in a small street next to walking street. No noise because it is this small street. Breakfast is simple but good and served by the lovely owner. Room was clean and good (for the price). I could recommend this great guesthouse.

    CLEAN HOTEL WITH GREAT LOCATION”
    Ngoc Phan Guest house is centrally located, near to every thing. It is in an alley of No. 35 Bui Vien Street. It's quite hard to find the hotel because there is no sign board on the road side of the alley and google map shows me the wrong direction. We loved to stay in this guest house , the room and bathroom is very clean . The owner Mr Chau and the staff Ah Qi is very friendly and helpful, we feel like staying at home. The breakfast is simple with bread, egg, jam, butter , coffee or fruit juice, tea and an apple. Thanks Mr Chau and Ah Qi. We will come back again .

    location, hospitality and service
    I have already given a report after a 2-nights stay that began our visit to Vietnam. We returned to Saigon for a night after our trips to Dalat and the coast and it was good to be back in a familiar place. The owner did not require our passport details as he had already got these details. We had to leave early for our trip to Phnom Penh. They made us a quick breakfast and sent us on our way. We were given the same room as the earlier one. It was clean and cosy as before. The room was bright with large windows. We had a very pleasant night. This guesthouse is set away from a very busy street - Bui Vien. The mainstreet has many shops and restaurants of all kinds and is close to many walkable attractions like the Ben ThanhMarket and the parks as well as the Water Puppet Show at the Golden Dragon Theater.

    The guest house was in the middle of back packers area but still fairly quiet apart from the dear lady in the apartments nearby who yelled at 6am most mornings. The guesthouse owner has very good English and is extremely helpful without being pushy. The breakfast of baguette and egg was rather boring but plate of fruit was good.
