So close to the action around the markets and Backpackers sites, the easiest and pleasant stroll to the central city and the rooms were so quiet a fantastic nights sleep was available. One of the best!

Hotel offers good value for money. Staff is very friendly and Hoang is able to organize everything for you. He makes our busy trip to Vietnam much more easier. Helped us to book transportation - buses, trains. Recommended accomodation in Rach Gia and some good place for massage! Big plus for the hotel to have receptionist like this!

The host/owner was exceptionally helpful and his English was outstanding! He helped us with taxi's, tours, bus bookings and restaurants and offered us towels and showers after we checked out before getting onto a long night bus. He also made us aware of things to be careful of (like fake taxi meter scams and pickpockets around town). Would definitely stay here again 😉

This hotel is great. Breakfast is provided free of charge. There is a variety of options and even fresh pineapple juice. The hotel is spotless and the rooms are cleaned every day, even the towels are changed. Unfortunately we fell victim to the moped cowboys of the city who snatched my bag on our final night.They helped us to the police station and translated the police report for us. We can't thank them enough. We highly recommend this hotel. For the price, it's the best in HCMC.

Fantastic location down a quiet lane but a two minute walk to all the action. The staff were nice, breakfast was ok. Unfortunately we were on level five and with no lift it's a long way up! The air con in our room was very weak.

Very friendly and helpfull staff. Very good located and a decent breakfast included. We booked our tours in the reception and everything was ok but there were a little bit more expensive than if you book it outside.

I found hcmc a little expensive when it came to accommodation, but i'm travelling alone and they charge for two people for you're own room every where here. It's a little frustrating but for the rest it was a really good place.

Amazing friendly and helpful staff, nice clean rooms, perfect location. We felt welcome from the first second. If we have to find something to improve: more variety at the breakfast :) If you are in HCMC, you have to stay at Phan Lan 2.

Friendly staff, clean rooms with comfortable beds (which is difficult to find in this part of the world for a reasonable price). Will definitely return next time I'm in Saigon!

Extremely friendly and helpful staff. They were like parents to us, taking care that we dont get lost or robbed and that we would be on time for our flight.

Great hostel, we booked for one night and ended up staying for around 5 altogether. The staff were really helpful and the rooms were really big and clean. Good location right in the centre of the backpacking area with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from.

Very pleasant, helpful, friendly staff. This is not a hostel. It's a private room with bath, TV, like a small hotel room. You can book tours through them for a very low price. I recommend the night tour. I took a couple of day tours that were very affordable, although the long days in the bus were rough. The Delta Mekong one day trip does not really SEE the floating markets as it arrives too late and they are all gone, nothing is there except maybe one boat. That was disappointing, but OK.

I really enjoyed staying at phan lan 2 Hotel!! The staff was very nice, spoke well english and was very helpfull and supportive when it came to organizing tours and flights! Also i liked where the Hotel was located: on a rather quiet street where you could eat great authentic vietnamese food and had just to walk 2 minutes to the main road if you wanted to drink a beer and meet other People! Definately staying there again if i return to ho-chi-minh-city one day!!
