    The worst hostel for the price. Do not believe in y reviews. It smell bad plillow and blanket not to be washed and the room is not clean. The sofa is dirty. When I arrived, the door was locked and I waited outside.In addition I did not see the owner and employee. A Next door woman open the room. They didn't inform me the number of wifi.

    Staff very friendly and hospitable. Ben was especially helpful with everything from booking day trips to money exchange. The room was clean and nice bathroom. The bed was pk except mattress was a bit hard for my liking. Some construction noise from the alley below my room for first night but otherwise fairly qyfor being in that busy location. Near s local market for good food. Family Mart very close. Very good value for money.

    Very pleasant stay!”
    I had a great time staying at Ben’s Cafe! He was so friendly and helpful, it was if I were meeting an old friend in Ho Chi Minh. The room was very clean and everything of high service. The bed was very comfortable and the AC worked well. The bathroom had hot water and was very comfortable to use. Ben was very helpful in organizing tours for me and whenever I ran into trouble. He was very patient and understanding. I felt like I could always count on him as a host. Ben’s Auntie was also very friendly despite the language barrier. She was very attentive to guests’ needs when it came to food, room cleaning, etc. I would definitely stay at Ben’s place again the next time around. I don’t think you’ll find a more attentive host than Ben in Ho Chi Minh.

    Home away from home.”
    This gem of a place is tucked between two quiet streets which guarantees a peaceful nights rest in a clean well kept room. A quaint coffee shop takes up the main floor which happens to have two great beers on tap. Across the street is a local resto that serves a delicious seafood pancake, what seems to be their specialty. My room had a balcony where you can watch the locals going about daily life. Close to attractions and restaurants. The kind hearted family that run this place really made it feel like home. Would definitely return and recommend

    Cozy place in the middle of action”
    Easy to get to by Airport bus 109. Cross two major streets to get there. Near to market and food stalls. Near the Singapore frogs legs porridge open only at night for 60000 dong. Better than original. Can take bus to Ben Thanh though walk right on the main street for a little and the clothes there are downright so cheap that no need to bargain. About 80000 dong for Understanding or Nike T-shirt instead of the usual tourist price of about 150000 dong.

    Thanks Ben, we will return.”
    The quaint café and accommodation are in a great location in quiet laneways, with local life to explore but close to the cathedral and market. Ben is always available for info or advice and it was refreshing to share his knowledge without the sales spiel for tours etc. We had a modern, spacious room and I would gladly return for this and Ben’s genuine hospitality.

    Super great!”
    Really love staying at the Nguyens. It was my first time going to Vietnam and staying at the Nguyens was the right decision for me. Ben, the owner, was really helpful and staying there was really more like staying at a friend's house than a stranger's hotel. The room was very clean, the smell of the room and the bedsheet was fresh. The amenities were one of the best! They provided big bottles of soap and shampoo from good brands. There're clean, thick towels, plenty of them though I was staying alone. There's water kettle, small fridge, and a lot of electricity sockets. I really enjoyed my stay at the Nguyens. The Vietnamese coffee in the Nguyens Cafe is truly one of the best! I even bought the coffee beans with me back home. Though they didn't provide breakfast, there's a small restaurant nearby serving grilled pork and broken rice for only VND 25 and it was really good plus the hotel staff can order it for you. The location is great since you can get great food and shops in walking distance. Getting Uber taxi is also easy since the place is across a well-known Vietnamese pancake restaurant (Banh Xeo Dinh Cong Trang). The Nguyens is truly where I will be going in my future trip to HCMC.

    Good but need to improved”
    The room itself is good. There is balcony but you can't really open curtains. Location is good too, matched with my needs, near market and where I wanted to go. There isn't reception so I thought it was out of luck for me to check in as I arrived at 9Pm and the house was closed. I called a number posted on agoda and she said she no longer worked there. Similar when I checked out. I booked the room based on photos i saw on agoda but i was given another. Not a big deal. Just was expecting something else. Though Jesse was nice and trying to help. Overall it was ok but can be improved. Especially try to provide as much detail possible on agoda so guests know what to expect.

    We had a fantastic stay. Jessi is extremely friendly and welcoming, providing fantastic recommendations and suggestions for local restaurants. We stayed in a terrace studio which was lovely, on the 3rd floor the terrace was great. Very clean, comfortable & modern room on a nice quiet back Street but only minutes from the hustle and bustle. We used uber to reach the Ben Thanh market and surrounding areas, VND50,000 fare approx.

    A Must Stay”
    A great place to stay on a visit to Ho Chi Minh. Perfectly located not too far from the airport, near great eateries / entertainment but far enough away from the tourist "strip". The hospitality shown by Ben and his entire family was exceptional. They even waited up for us until 4am (late flight arrival) to check us in. The authentic Vietnamese coffee at the cafe below is the best we have ever tried!! Ben's auntie was a delight every morning we stopped in to grab a coffee. Do yourself a favour and stay here.

    Room with incedible small like sleeping in a toilet”
    At first Ben the owner was friendly and gave us a free upgrade after we wheren‘t satisfied with the offered and booked room ( pritty small and approximately 35 degrees inside). We where lucky about that, after some hours outside we came back, the room was incredible smelling like toilet. We used aircondition, hopefully it helps,, but no. Because of the upgrade we didn’t want to ask at first, but after two nights,we asked for changing the room. The owners girlfried was surprised, promissed help. 10 min later i spoked with another guest, she told me here parents had changed this room because of the same problem two night before!!! So they didnt care, knowing about stinky room and gave us „ this would be the best room they have🤨“In the afternoon i asked again for changing, he told me there was a plomber and there is no problem any more. We checked, same as before! I told him again and again, at 23:15 ! they offered us a changing in another hotel. We didnt because of early destination

You'll find the main property with the cafe just down the street. The best reason to stay here is Ben and his auntie. They are both lovely, attentive and exceptionally responsive.

    Nice folk, but a bit far”
    I had to think really hard about this review. Ben the owner (?) was super friendly. The staff were extra nice, albeit via Google Translate. This place was a 45 min speed walk to the city center, but close to a beautiful pink Catholic Church. I didn't mind the walk, but my feet were very sore on the way back. The place was super...um cute. My stay was mid December, so not quite peak heat. Still, was warm. The room's air conditioning absolutely did not cut it. We had to have a fan brought in from downstairs to supplement. Glad it wasn't summer. Breakfast would have been nice. The Toujour bakery was only about 1 km away which was great.

    The Nguyen Cafe has been by far the best hospitality treatment I have ever received. Ben and Sue were so welcoming and went out of their way to make us feel at home. I have never received such good care as I have at this hotel. I definitely return here again next week. The coffee and tea is awesome as well. The auntie who serves the tea is one of the sweetest ladies you will ever meet. She is a joy to see. Awesome place and highly recommend!
