Special thanks for Mrs Ngoc who is patiently guides and assists me to book my tours while am in Vietnam. I don't think I could do the arrangement only in one - two days time. Ngoc Thao Guesthouse staffs are very helpful in giving directions and friendly too. Location is in the centre of Saigon, just walking distance to cafes, bars, restaurants, banks etc. My rooms were private and tidy included attached bathroom. I like them. I really enjoy my Vietnamese trips!.

the friendliest and most helpfully staff/family run guest house ever. All the staff went out of their way to make me feel welcome and book all tours for me! The rooms were also very comfortable.

This is an adorable guest house right in the middle of the city. The staff is really nice and helping with everything. They help you arrange trips for a MORE THAN REASONABLE price! Breakfast is amazing as well and they make sure you eat before you leave for a trip. The only thing that needs to be improved is cleanliness in the bathrooms. The rooms were cleaned everyday but the bathrooms (on the 5th floor dorm) were obviously not cleaned the entire 5 days I was there.

This place was conveniently located in the middle of Ho Chi Minh City where surrounding were a few big sights that were within walking distance. The staff was incredibly helpful getting me from and to the airport, booking day trips and providing me ample information on the town itself.

It is a nice hostel located in Pham Ngu Lao. The hostel is situated in a small alley at Pham Ngu Lao, but the hostel itself is very clean. The hostel personnel is extremely friendly and helpful. They can also help with joining tours to Mekong Delta and Cu Chi tunnels. Breakfast is included (even pancakes)! Double room is clean and has both aircon and fan. The wifi connection is sometimes a bit poor, but the hostel has two computers in the lobby that are available for use.

Loved this guesthouse, the family were so caring and kind to all of us. Free breakfast was perfect, good aircon and amazing location. I left Ho Chi Minh and came back and will go back again! Try and get the room on the 5th floor as it has a lovely balcony which is great for socialising.

The staff were amazingly hospitable. The breakfast was basically eggs and a bread roll or a pancake which I appreciated. Showers were mediocre. Aircon was very effective. I would definitely reccomend the Ngoc Thao to other travelers.

It is a great place to stay in HCMC! The staff is very nice and very helpful. The location is great and even the social area is not so large, you always meet other travelers. I can definitely recommend it!

Stayed with a nice family. But the family sitting in the front room limited other backpackers sitting in the communal area, so it wasn't the most social place. The woman is really helpful and informative, and was a Le to book cheap tours. Breakfast was nice!
