Hotel was clean, one staff member was quite helpful and spoke English not sure about whether the others spoke much English - certainly didn't interact much. Initially booked for 1 night but asked about staying for 2 and were advised that they were fully booked, mentioned later that (after looking up a few other hotels on the internet) we had to go and find another hotel for the next night and they said we could stay as they had a cancellation - would have been good if they could have told us!

Fantastic location, helpful and friendly staff, basic but clean rooms with good aircon- great value for money.


A small hotel just of the main tourist streets of the city. Staff are friendly, conscientious and always available-boostng security and providing helpful information on a range of issues. Rooms are clean and well maintained, laundry arrangements are efficient and there is constant hot water. Beds are comfortable. Breakfast is adequate without being over filling. All in all a great place to stay at a reasonable price.


Roon door had a keychain held by only two loose screws, no safe, no teamaking facilities Shower curtain quit.e dirty


I stayed at Ngoc Linh in February 2014. The hotel is well located: it is in an alleyway between PNL Rd and Pub St. There was no nighttime noise from the bars on these streets. The room is small, but was sufficient for one person. It would be tight for 2 people. There was a desk and a good sized wardrobe. The bathroom was a wetroom, as is standard for Vietnamese budget hotels. My only complaint is that there was virtually no water pressure so showering was tricky. Nevertheless, the water was hot.


This hostel was one of the best I have stayed in, very clean and comfortable. Thank you!
