    Disappointed ”

    1. We booked a private twin room and they put us in a private 4 person dorm room with bunk beds. 2. They put us in a hostel a few doors down and not at the hostel we booked at. 3. We gave them our laundry and they promised it would be ready that night. It was not and wanted us to wait until 2pm the next day for the laundry (after we were already supposed to have checked out)! 4. When we asked for late check out due to their mistake, they gave us such problems. 5. The beds were extremely uncomfortable. 6. Their was no shampoo or soap in the room. Such a shame that they provide such bad service.

    Near the action, yet secluded and quiet”

    Down an alley off the street for a quieter sleep. You will either love or hate the market at the alley entrance. Convenient for a variety of local foods, fresh or cooked. But crowded during open hours and messy afterwards. Friendly helpful staff, clean rooms, nice bathroom. Standard triple room, window overlooking the alley but still quiet. I would have liked a chair or stool to sit on for the small desk area. Not enough electrical outlets for recharging things. Nice simple breakfast with choices of egg or noodle dishes, cooked to order, choice of one beverage and one main dish included.

    LOVE THIS PLACE - will definitely REBOOK!”

    So we had our Indochina trip and had to book four different hotels and this is definitely my clear favorite out of all we've booked! It has.... 1. GREAT location - just a few meters away from the main plaza and Bu Vien walking street as well as the travel agency street (De Tham). I think the only downside for this is that there are A LOT of big rats at night in the area but the hostel itself is clean 2. Staff are SUPER NICE and ACCOMMODATING - we arrived there at around 3AM and they immediately accommodated us and were so kind in answering our questions and requests 3. Thank heavens they have an ELEVATOR - we had big luggages and the elevator was a huge relief 4. VALUE FOR MONEY x100 - I'm not even exaggerating hahahaha. Our room was so nice and clean plus our breakfast was delightfully good! 5. It's generally clean! As mentioned, the hostel itself is clean. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because of the rats in the surrounding areas. More power guys!

    Worth it”

    We checked in about 8pm this time due to heavy traffic from Phnom Penh. Thanks to Binh(reception) allowed us to safekeep our luggage for 1night when we took a bus to Phnom Penh. Our room is quite simple with white interiors which makes you feel relaxed, a minimalist classy design.but i think the bathroom was not kept clean though 😅 Breakfast- very good👍🏻 with generous amount of serving, they provide you various types of breakfast noodles/banh mi etc and also comes with vietnam coffee (hot/cold) -Strong Wi fi connection. -if ever you want to experience night life, it’s just 5minutes away. hostel Gate curfew until 12mn but they will open the gate for you if ever you’re still out anytime. Location- Near in Market place. Difficult to find if you’re not familiar to the set-up but this is near to everything, night life, teashop, coffee shop,convenient store, noodle shop ..as in EVERYTHING..👍🏻 Staffs- All of them are very accommodating specially Binh 😄 who’s really patient on answering all our queries/concerns and requests. Kudos to the Team!♥️ if ever i’ll be coming back to HCM, will definitely book on this hostel again. Til next time!

    Just Okay.”

    We arrived almost 2am in this hotel and we got a hard time finding the location. good thing that we encountered an accommodating grab driver and help us find the specific hostel unit. We are so sleepy that time and we got disappointed because Binh told us they don’t have room left for us☹️informed that they are fullybooked, but they will divert our booking in a nearby hostel within bui vien street. My rating is for Saigon hostel 2. The girl there looks like irritated whenever we’re asking her for something. She gave us a locker space without a padlock. my friend is a bit worried about her things because her bag does not have a lock. In the end, they still did not provide us a padlock. Also, we asked her simple things like if there’s a nearby mall that we could see,she said she doesn’t know anything because she’s just working there.We never got a good information from .Even reserving a ticket going to Phnom Penh,looks like we’re giving her a hard time as her face shown.She just told us that the line is busy,all tickets are fullybooked and she can’t do anything about it. That’s why we go back to Phan Anh and talked to Binh to help us buy a ticket although it’s only a midnight travel is available we really appreciate his effort on helping us.Good thing we only stayed at New Saigon Hostel for 1 night. Then upon checking out we requested Binh if we could transfer back at Phan Anh on our succeeding night.good thing they reserved a room for us this time.

    Their team were helpful and accommodating. The hostel was very clean and neat, newly renovated and more spacious. The toilet and bathroom ...always clean and with modern design. The manager, Ms Hang was warm and accommodating. The breakfast was healthy and delicious. I love the fruits that i bought at the market that was just few meters away from the hostel. I love this hostel.

    Near everything!”

    Just in front of Park 23/9 bus station. You can take the bus to Cu Chi from there for DIY. You need to go inside an alley at the wet market. About 15 minutes to Bui Vien and 20-25 minutes away to Ben Thanh. They clean the room after 2 nights. Breakfast is at 6:30 am. They missed on providing us towels so we asked and they were able to provide. Staff are very accommodating. No slippers though in our room. You need to remove your shoes or slippers while inside the place. Overall, it's a good stay. Will choose this again.

    Staffs were very friendly and awesome. They better try to communicate with deaf people. Also they wrote the paper. It was great for them to be a something a new. They did helped with call company and make sure that the guide would come to show up at hotel. But we did not realizable the hotel near at the street. Because it is not quick to find it. I have a good suggestion for hotel. Hotel should have a good sign that people can realize it. For example, the sign should have large sign. That it is very easy to way to find it. That’s all and they did treated us as well!

    Great value for money !”

    Located near to most of the tourist spots. Closeby marts + eateries. Relatively new hostel with clean rooms + bathrooms + beds. Good hot water to bathe. Spacious bathroom for a hostel. Breakfast was great. Though simple, its enough to cover 1 meal. Staff at reception is ever willing to answer all your questions. Can walk through a local market to see the local scene. Cons Located just behind a daily market. Need to go through some dirty area to get to the alley (not really a big problem). The entrance of the hostel is at a narrow alley which might look a little scary in the beginning haha. But the lane is full of hostels and is pretty safe. They offer some tour packages (liasing with other travel agents) but we managed to find cheaper options just down the road. Would I stay here again? A definite yes !!!

    Was given a different hostel at 270 Bùi Viện (New Saigon Hostel) since there are guests which need to extend their stay at Phan Anh Hostel. For location I still prefer Phan Anh coz' it's near the morning market which I like and it is not too noisy like Bùi Viện street. But the staff are great and friendly, hostel also clean and cheap.

Near Bui Vien Street, Taka Complex, Sense Market, Airport Cons: Some staff have difficulty understanding english. Be patient. Use google. Gate closes after 12:00 but says open 24 hours. You can buzz but have to wait til someone wakes up. Overall, I am satisfied. Will definitely book this again. Suggestion: Please invest on locks with codes for easier accessibility during late night check ins. Also, for those people who went out to party and enjoy HCMC.

    This place is being renovated so they sent us down the road to a sister business which was fully equipped with everything we could need and had a lovely room. Everyone is friendly and lovely - they even helped us out when we had booked for the wrong dates, so we were grateful for their assistance. Nice location - in a back alley with many other hostels near the main backpacker section of town, but removed from all of the noise.

    The hostel is being renovated when we got there”

    We checked in here after our tour in Phnom Penh. We were scammed by the taxi driver stationed at the Giant Ibis Bus Terminal. When we arrived at the hotel, gates are closed and there is a note that the hostel is currently being renovated, and we should proceed to New Saigon Hostel. The rooms advertised by the Phan An Backpackers are the ones in the New Saigon. Spacious rooms, it has a view of the street nearby where we ate our dinner. Agencies that arrange tours of the HCMC are also within the vicinity.
