Pretty simple but kind staff Very small private room with just a bunk bed in it and without windows. It was clean but kind of depressing. The location was quite good with lots of bars and restaurants in walking distance. The owners were very friendly and good English speaking. They also assisted in booking day trips. We would recommend this...

We had such high expectations based on TripAdvisor, and this turned out to be really disappointing. The room was so dirty and we just didn't feel like this place was up to standard based on the price we paid.

Staff were very very kind and just wanted to make your stay comfortable - even made us breakfast early before an early flight out! Be prepared to walk up a lot of stairs! But it's good for burning off all the great shakes and food along the road of the guesthouse. Bathrooms were outside and basic but it's SE Asia...

This guesthouse was in a great location. The staff were super friendly & helpful. They booked the bus for us to Cambodia for $12 each and the service was great. Breakfast was lovely-try the pancakes. Laundry service available, computers to use & wifi. Overall a great budget guesthouse.

I booked two nights at this place but decided not to stay. The dorm seemed sort of ok I guess, though the showers and bathrooms were not clean. I arrived in the morning after a sleepless night, and check in was at 2pm, so i asked to take a shower. They only let me use the one in the kitchen,...

Our room was very very tiny and had no window - the price was obviously too high for that. We had free breakfast which was okay. The staff there was nice and they offered really cheap trips to Mekong Delta. It is located in a small alley in the Backpacker quarter of HCMC.
