        Just what I needed at that time”

        I was looking for a place with a reasonably priced private room so I could work. At the same time, I wanted to wander out the front door and stumble upon dozens of restaurants, coffee shops, and bakeries. I needed good WiFi. I wanted to buy a bus ticket and not need to go far. Thanh Hostel had it all. Quite likely, I will go back again the next time I'm in HCMC.

        I liked this place very much. My room was spacious, the water hot, the mattress soft, and the fridge cold. the air conditioner worked on an "on again, off again" basis. You step outside and you are in the heart of the District 1 tourist action. Step inside and all is quiet. When I bought a bus ticket, I only had to walk one block. Pastry shops, bars, and abound. I would return in a heartbeat.

        Room was very spacious. Location is convenient since there restauarants and convenience stores near the hotel. Staff were accomodating, you can also book with them tours w/in Ho Chi Minh and taxi going to airport. Drinking water was also provided in the room. Cons: Inn is difficult ti locate since most inns along the ate are named Thanh. It is a bit noisy at night since it is at the center of bars/ pub street

        The hotel is worth the price. It is clean and big enough for the four of us. Location, it depends on what kind of person are you. It is located at the heart of Bui Vien St. known as the busiest street in Ho Chi Mihn City and we can attest to that. We arrived 3 am and people are all partying, lights are dancing, music are bouncing and a lot of restobars on both sides of the street. We’re actually afraid walking along the street looking for our hotel (we are not into night parties), we’re abit shock watching people dancing liberated. So if you’re a party animal this is the best place for you to stay. 😉

        Value for money the site location plus instant night party every night. No boring moments staying. ”

        Pros: value for money, food so cheap, every night is a party night as if we were at the city or shall I SAY District area that does not sleep. Everything is accessible. The hostel has big rooms, good air conditioning, owners tries to help all the time when ask, they book our tours cheaply, our taxi came on time. Cons: At first the airport shuttle did have a hard time locating since it was inside narrow alley only bicycles and motorcycles can get in. The hostel owner, Nicolas forgot to pick us up at the airport probably due to misunderstanding and time differences but it's OK. Because when our group arrived they were there outside the street eagerly waiting. Last day, back to airport our taxi was reserved on time. Another cons, the no elevator stairs kind of steep but for us since value for money it is OK. Lastly, the drainage after shower always got full. Their floor drain has basket strainer. For me it not good idea. Few hairs should not plugg. But no a problem with us!

        The man that has a crippled hands is rude, he even get irritated just by us asking him how much the dollar, very rude. Then the hostel decalre they have free bottled water then when you get the water they will ask for payment😂. Then behind the drawer has used dirty tissues. The toilet is dirty. This is so far the most hate hostel we ever had.

        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. :)

        Superb location and service with clean rooms”

        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

        A hotel worth the price”

        Small, clean hotel

        Actually this is a room-for-rent type of hotel. Located in a small alley of Bui Vien street in District 1 where lots of western backpackers are staying. It has free internet. 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.

        a place worth staying”

        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.
