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.

Phuong and her family are absolutely lovely people! Every time we got back we had a nice little chat about our day and our plans, they were very helpful and not constantly trying to sell their tours, but simply showing us the best way. The room was nice with fan and AC, every day our bed was made and fresh towels. Warm shower, but cold was nicer most of the time. Only detail that maybe missed was a shower curtain, it would make showering more comfortable. Other than that, perfect! Thanks again!

Our stay at Ly Loan was a very nice surprise. Just booked it randomly and it was so nice. The family who owns the place is living in the first floor. They are very nice and helpful. Phuong was trying to help us and give advice all the time. She showed us the way to cu chi by the local bus and booked a mekong tour for us. The location is perfect. It is in the middle of District 1 and you can walk around there easily. We felt very comfortable and I would stay here every time again.

This is a great family-run guesthouse in an excellent location. The room was spotless and spacious. For the city, the price is excellent and they give great advice on local cheap restaurants or anything else you are looking for. Highly recommended!

The staff at Ly Loan is the sweetest family! They are so nice and make you feel like home! They give you a map and advise you what to do and Can also help with bus to the next place. The rooms are big and clean and the facilities are great. Location is also very good. We had only booked 2 nights, but ended up staying there 4 nights because we just didn't want to leave.

The hostel is quite good, the problem is that the owners live in the first floor so they know when you go out, get in, with whom, and they always ask what do you do... is like when you are a teenager and your mother is waiting for you in the door every night to check if you were drinking... that was my feeling.

Ly Loan Guesthouse is operated by a very kind family in a great location. They made sure we were comfortable and helped us get a taxi at the end of our stay to ensure we got a fair rate. Its location is steps away from the backpacker/nightlife area but is in a small alley that buffers noise from the crowds and makes for a quiet stay. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. Overall a nice choice!

Ly Loan Guesthouse is just great. Located in the center of the backpacker's district, you can also easily access the main tourist attractions if Saigon by foot. The rooms itself were spacious and of good value. What made our stay so great were our hosts. The family who runs the guest house where increcibly carrying and helpful. They book a pretty good half-day tour to the tunnels and a bus to Phnomh Penh and bought some real Vietnamese coffee for us from the wholesaler. Highly recommended!

Value for money could not be better. The room looked more like one in a 5-star-hotel than in a family run guesthouse. Super nice and honest people. They organized a much cheaper bike ride to the airport than i could find anywhere on the street. No hidden costs. Highly recommendable.

A really nice guest house in the middle of the backpacker area. The staff is awesome! The room was big with a proper bathroom and it was kept clean. The air-con worked properly. No bad things about the place. Would absolutely recommend to stay here while in Saigon.

- Great location and great recommendations from the staff on attractions, restaurants, and general tips. - The room is a good size and the bed is comfortable, the floor could be cleaned better with hair and dusts around corners and edges - Washroom had a bad odour, dimly lit, poor water pressure, and had an awkward setup with the shower head and no curtain
