Budget hotel near the city area”
Near to the bus station, which easy to get on and off for the airport bus. 15 mins walk to Ban Thay Market, location is good. Just the air cond is not cool enough.

Prime location, yet reproachable cleaning policy”
As per management decision to save on laundry costs, housekeepers are not allowed to change linens in between guests unless visibly soiled, so you will be literally sleeping in somebody else's linens. I believe most western travelers won't agree with that policy.

Hotel with a good location”
Our stay in Saigon Balo Hostel was good. It's location is very accessible. About 10 minutes walk to Ben Tahn Market and 30 minutes to Notre Dame Cathedral and Post Office. There are also nearby travel agency for your Ho Chi Minh tour. The only downsides are that the breakfast is limited to eggs and bread, the tv doesn't have a good reception, the toiletries were not replaced, no hair dryer and no complimentary water. But overall, we had a great stay.
