Hostelworld says:

NgocThao GuestHouse is in the middle of the backpackers' area, less than 20 minutes' walk from the main sights of the city centre. This clean, bright and cheerful hostel features large lockers and air conditioning plus a personal light, power socket and shelf at each bunk. We've noticed several of our guests return here whenever they're in Ho Chi Minh. Visitors tell us this hostel offers good prices on tours and is 'very well run by a lovely, friendly and very helpful family'.

    My luggage did not arrive when I landed and the airport and the staff were a great help. They provided a phone charger and towel to use and showed me where to get cheap toiletries and clothes. They also helped call the airport and eventually got my luggage delivered to the hostel the next day. You can book tours with them as well that seemed to be cheaper than some other people had paid from a tour booth. I would stay here again.
