Very helpful staff, good breakfast, clean rooms and good wifi. Would be good to organise activities at night to help meet people, but otherwise great!

The familyrun business was simple, but very nice indeed. The rooms where clean, water and beer cheap and the pancake for breakfast absolutely delicious. The family members are very eager to help planning trips and give good advices.

This was a nice place to stay in Saigon! Location was the best, right in the middle of backpackers area near all bars and restaurants. There is small common area but still you are able to meet other travelers. Staff was nice! Only our room was very basic, no window, nowhere to put your stuff, my upper bunk bed was only a meter away from ventilation and it was making some weird sound! I think other rooms are better, if you are booking private,book double room instead twin! Everything else was ok!

The owners and staff here made this hostel memorable, we have already recommended it to other fellow travelers. The room was very clean and the breakfasts were great, especially the pancakes. Good location in the backpacker district, close to most attractions. We would have really appreciated our own locker in the private room however. Thanks to Tony for going out of his way to celebrate my birthday – he even got me a cake :)

Great staff. Free breakfast of bread and eggs or crepe or instant noodles. Aircon and good wifi. Right by the backpacker nightlife. Its in an alleyway which has cheap street food, massage spas, everything you need. Just keep in mind their airport pickup service will be charged to you when you check in $15. Normal price if u haggle at the airport is $7 (about 150,000 viet dong)

Really good guesthouse. Run by a young family, the facilities are excellent- great central location in district 1, free breakfast, very fast internet, computer for those travelling without a device and nice communal area. Dorms and private rooms available. There's a very friendly young women who works on reception in the morning and early afternoon who will arrange transport and tours and has an enyclopeadiac knowledge of the city. Only criticism is that it can be difficult to find at first.

Will definitely recommend this to our friends here in the Philippines & abroad. The place is really value for money. Staff were so kind to booked for our city tour & even suggest trip where we can save cost on the fare charges. I asked for a free charge of pick-up from the airport and agreed to cost us free. However, when we arrived we were asked to pay. Bottom line, we still enjoyed our stay.

The hostel is located in front of the bus stop where the busses coming from Phnom Penh drop off their passengers! Thus not far to walk!

Staff was always helpful, including at 4 am when my flight showed up 2 hours late. Breakfast was fantastic, try the pancakes with jam. And they remember everyone's name. Just awesome.

While it’s in the backpacker ghetto, this is one of the nicest guesthouses I stayed in all of Asia. Clean rooms, great staff and other travelers, solid complementary breakfast. If you’re gonna stay in the backpacker area of Saigon, make sure you stay at NgocThao!

The location is perfect. In the middle of Saigon one can walk to a lot of interesting points. The staff was very friendly. We booked a 2 day tour to the Mekong Delta which was amazing.

We were only staying for a night and didn't have that many times spent on the hostel, but the staff were really helpful Our room was on the 3rd floor, though the bunk bed were a bit creaking but all the facilities were working well. There's a socket on each bed, and an option of using fan our air conditioner. The toilet were clean and quite wide. We must went through a small alley to reach to this guesthouse, so I won't recommend bringing lotsa big stuff with you
