The location is really good and the hotel fine. Nothing special but a decand place to stay. Sometimes the staff was really helpful and sometimes not at all... But in the end We would go there again.

The hotel staff were really lovely and happy to help. The hostel was located very close to the tourist strip but also near a lovely park which comes alive at night with the people of Ho Chi Minh City. Breakfast in the morning was wonderful! Open between 7-10am the cook would make what you requested from a menu - mostly vietnamese food but there were western options too.

Very accommodating. The gentleman that runs it is one of the nicest owners i have ever met. Extremely helpful, goes above and beyond. Centrally located. Super duper clean. Skip the breakfast. Book your own taxi, cost us about $6 to get to airport but were charged $8, not a big deal, just a detail. Would highly recommend.

Really lovely hostel in the middle of the main backpacking area of Ho Chi Minh City. The room was not a bad size and always cleaned. No social area so lends itself to being a small hotel as opposed to a hostel. Couldn't do enough for us and we enjoyed our time there. The stairs might be a challenge for some but your bags can be wiched up to your floor so you just need to get yourself up the stairs.

Mekong Express travel to Phnom Penh is good but the Phnom Penh to SiemReap is not good. Bus travel speed is around 30 to 40 kph... Alot of bus overtake the Mekong Express Bus to SiemReap. Bus is so slow, aircon is bad and no wifi on board. The TNK travel is good... The CityTour which I forgot the name sucks. We didn't finish the whole day tour.

We really enjoyed our stay here! We booked more nights & were shuffled around to different rooms and each was great. My only problem was that the last room we stayed in smelt a little musty/mouldy. The staff are AMAZING. They are so friendly and nice. They helped organize our Mekong tour and did our laundry. Breakfast was good, but simple. It is really close to the backpacker district and a 2 min walk from the bus station. Not too noisy either! Not a social hotel, no real hangout spots.

The manager was very kind and eager to make our stay the best possible. He woke up early to make us breakfast before taking the bus which was very appreciated. Rooms are a bit small but have all the basic amenities.

Great place to stay for very friendly and helpful staff, security and location. Not really any common areas so not great if you are wanting to meet people but I would definitely recommend if you want somewhere quiet. Room was comfortable, clean, secure and value for money. Yes, there were stairs but get some exercise! Staff ensue you don't need to carry your bags up!

The staff was very friendly, at night all of them were studying english, I think that is something that proofs they are committed to their job

We really enjoyed our stay at phan lan. All the staffs are really kind and accommodating. What I really love about this hotel is their internet connection, so fast you can watch live stream. I will definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and if ever I will go back to VIETNAM, I would stay on this hotel again.
