This hotel was great value for money in a brilliant location to explore Ho Chi Minh City. The staff were really friendly and provided a good breakfast to kick start the day. All the sights are within walking distance, the bars and restaurants are right next door. The only downside was the hotel was way to expensive for tours, laundry and exchange rate.

We would like to explain you that we book the tour with TNK travel. This is a well-known company. It has new bus and the tour guide speak good English. We are sorry that you didn't book the tour with us. So you did not have experience with this company.You booked the tour across the street which was 1USD cheaper..The laundry in our hotel was used the reliable washing powder (not use bleach liquid as the laundry service down the road).We update the exchange rate everyday.This way is for fair

Very helpful staff, clean comfortable rooms, great breakfast included. Close to the backpacker area but not right on the bustling street which is nice.

The only con was having to walk up 3 flight of stairs, but most hostels have the exact same setup, so I cant complain. The facilities are extremely clean, it is centrally located for backpackers, and staff was as helpful as we would've wanted. There are many great places to stay in Saigon, and this is definitely one of them. Haven't read any reviews, but if there are any negative reviews, I can guarantee they were isolated incidents. We had a great stay with no issues whatsoever. Highly recommen

The staff were very friendly and helpful. They booked all of our trips for us, gave us lots of information and when we came back to stay for an extra night they gave us an upgraded room free of charge. I would definitely stay here again.

We have no regrets booking this hotel. Mr. Van was always very helpful from the time we arrived up to the time we leave. He is like a temporary father while you are staying in his place. Just tell him what you want and he will do right away. We haven't had problems from our tours up to booking our buses. When you go exploring and come back to your room, everything is already clean and your clothes are even folded and things arranged. Breakfast was also good. Thank you so much Mr. Van.

Went out of their way to help you in any way possible! Just 1 minute away from backpacker street but in a calm place.

This hostel is amazing. The receptionist was extremely helpful and sweet. I lost my phone and she called many people to help me get it back. She also gave useful tips to foreigners- such as safe taxis and places to visit. They made a delicious free breakfast. She also arranged a taxi to the airport and walked us out to find it! the whole experience was a blessing. If I ever return to Vietnam I will definitely go back to Phan Lan 2

Great location. Very helpful staff who organised tour to Cu Chi tunnels and bus tickets to Cambodia. Even helped me out when I made a mistake with online booking for next hotel. Good value for money in HCM City.

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.
