This is the best place we stayed in the whole of Asia. So friendly and great clean rooms . It's also in the perfect location with amazing food on your door steps! Stay here you won't be disappointed! We also book the chi chi tunnels through them and it was great!


Brilliant family who were very friendly and helpful. We would love to come back the next time we come to Ho Chi Minh City.


Loved staying here! We booked a few more nights as we enjoyed Ho Chi Min and the B&B so much. The family who run the place were lovely, so friendly and helpful when we needed advice. Room was a good size and cleaned well everyday. I would stay here again


The staff were lovely, very helpful with suggestions of what to do in the city. Suggested good places to grab dinner. The street had so many quality places to eat, and for a very cheap price. Very clean and comfortable stay


Wonderful room in the heart of backpackers district. Great view from 3rd floor balcony. Friendly and helpful family living on ground floor so security is 100%. It's tucked away on a small side alley that has loads of good street food and cheap smoothies! This is our second time staying here and we will absolutely come back again. Not a hostel for partying and meeting new people but fantastic for resting and re-cooperating between adventures


Rooms have AC and mini fridge, which were so needed when rolling off the plane from England in Vietnam summer. It's a family run place, all the family are so helpful + nice, and give good advice about the area + travelling. WiFi isn't amazing, but good enough for email and messaging.

Staying here was a great experience. The owners were very helpful and provided us with a map and plenty of advice on how to enjoy the area as well on staying safe. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and the AC strong! To get in you had to walk past the staff and family so security was not an issue at all, also at night the outside door was locked and you had to ring a doorbell. The only downside was that it felt like you were walking through their living room when you entered.


Great staff, nice clean private room with a/c and TV. Location can be a bit confusing at first. Look for alley marked 241 which is a few storefronts down from ABC Bakery right next to a fruit juice shop. Turn into alley and walk 30 meters and hostel will be first door into alley on your left. This is run by a very nice family and it's not a party hostel. But it's only about 100 meters from Bui Vien street which is the backpacker mecca and great for night life. Laundry and street food nearby.
