      Very nice guesthouse, available hosts”
      The room was clean and well equipped (fan, air con, fridge, TV, hot water). A little bit confusing when we arrived as there were several guesthouses named « Thanh » within the same area and the host tried to make us pay more than what we booked for (they don’t really speak English), but everything was settled quickly. At night the music coming from the bars in the street nearby was very loud and woke us up. Except for this it was a nice location.

      Worst night in Vietnam”
      I was just spending one night in Ho chi Minh. I didn't know it was in the party area, so you could here the boum coming from nightclubs. But worst, the staff started a karaoke at midnight that ended at 3 am. You could hear everything from the room. The staff was not very friendly too. The room door was made of glass, so the corridor light could go through and illuminate the room. To summarize : a noisy, uncomfortable night in a not so great busy area. Would not go there again !

      The room and bathroom were clean, the staff was very kind and helpful. The only problem was the noise: our room was facing the street so we could hear the very loud music of the backpacker street and the people chatting in the street so it was very noisy, so maybe if you are staying here take some earplugs. Also the aircond wasn’t working very well we couldn’t switch it off, or change the temperature. I recommend this place if you are on a budget and want to enjoy the nightlife

      Great place to stay for Budget Travelers :)”
      We booked a room good for three people on Thanh Guesthouse and we were provided with 1 queen bed and 2 single beds. The room was spacious, with refrigerator and the bathroom has a heater. Though there is no free complimentary drinks like water. We paid roughly 700 VND for 2 nights stay. So not bad at all. It is just infront of the walking street so it is very convenient to roam around the city. They also offer tour packages.. the prices and details are already posted on the wall., so it is very convenient. Tbh, t'was affordable and legit. We just spent $5 for Cu Chi tunnel tour and $5 for the entrance fee. The only cons is that there's really no reception area or receptionist. The girl who assist us even sleep on the 1st floor and you have to be quiet when entering the house or else you'll wake her up. But overall, the place is a good place to stay esp if you are on a tight budget. :)

      clean, location
      Thanh Guesthouse is a home based guesthouse. It was located in the alley, we got lost at first. But once you found it, it's very easy to reach. The lady in the living room, not reception counter, was nice and always smile. She does not speak English so it's difficult for us to talk to her. We had to climb 3 floors to our room. The room was quite spacious and considerable clean. The WiFi very poor, water pressure very low, took longer time to bath. They also offer tours but we decided to get our own. There are plenty of foods and nightlife around.

      Location, clean, cheap.
      The hotel is in a good location being central in the backpacker district. It's located about 75 metres off the main road which meant it was fairly quiet. Rooms higher up are a bit better as there tends to be more noise on lower floors, but I'm a very light sleeper so this might not be a problem for others. I'd stay here again if I'm in HCMC.

      resonable price, convenient location, friendly staff
      I stayed here alone in July, 2014. My room, spacious and air-conditioned, which is very comfortable to stay in. The location is convenient as well. Stores and bars are within walking distance. Also, there are computer and printer available on the ground floor. Staff there is friendly and helpful. You can buy tours, rent motorbikes, and get laundry service there. My favorite time of the day is the night, when people sit in front of there houses drinking and chatting. It's a nice experience to enjoy the Vietnamese lifestyle. I highly recommend Thanh Guesthouse.

      Location is excellent for the tourist areas, though if you don't mind staying further afield then you can get much better value for money. Rooms were very small, and the staircase was quite narrow, so was a bit tricky with bags. But location is great and for the price in this area is good value for money

      I like the guest house. If you visit HCMC for the first time, it's better for you to come by taxi and show the address to the driver. There's refrigerator inside. Also hot and cold water to take a bath. The price was cheap. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was good because near from Ben Thanh Market. Highly recommended for backpacker and low budget tourist. Worth it.

      quiet, modern, clean, big TV, A/C, helpful staff
      We stayed here for a few nights on Oct 2012 and had a great stay. Our room was USD14/night. One can easily find cheaper rooms nearby but we liked this place because it was (relatively) quiet, family-run, very clean, and had big rooms. Some reviews spoke of small rooms not having windows. Our room was large and we had very big windows, but looking out into another building in a narrow alleyway. This was fine for us because a view would have meant a big street and all big streets in the area are very noisy. I recommend this place for couples looking for a safe, quiet place to escape the Saigon madness. It is not for those looking to meet others and party all night long.

The room is provided with A/C, TV with international channels, hot water, tiny balcony directly overlooking the neighbor ;-). The owner can help you arrange the bus to hop to other cities also the tours.

      Service with a smile, big cosy bed, fantastic location
      Stayed there for 3 nights and has no regrets for choosing Thanh Guesthouse. The guesthouse is located at a fantastic location, a hidden treasure, an alley between pham ngu lao and bui view. Hence, away from both the busy street. However by within 2 min walking distance along the small alley, you will reach Bui vien or pham ngu lao (where restaurant, pubs and tour agent are massly located) with ease depending on whether you turn right or left at the cross road. The favourite thing of mine of Thanh Guesthouse is the cosy queenbed cater for each person. The hotel owner also provde day tour services, taxi booking and bike rental at a affordable price. Once again, highly recommended for travellers with budget concerns
