A great location and good rooms and Vy and the others were very helpful (provided excellent information on food and things to do around HCMC). The draw back was that there isn't a common area so you don't meet anyone else. But no complaints if you know that before hand
Vy and her mom were very helpful. On arrival I had mentioned my time limitation to them (2 days in Ho Chi Minh). They set me up with a good tour and recommended helpful options within the tour, stored my luggage when I went on the tour and extended use of the facility to me on arrival from the tour (when I had checked out and was waiting for my bus) I'm definitely staying here again next time I'm in Ho Chi Minh.
Very good hostel in an amazing location. Rooms are immaculately clean, and they stay fresh thanks to the A/C unit. Also, Ms. Vy and the rest of the staff are very kind and helpful.
Fantastic place to stay! We tried to extend our stay another 3 nights but it was booked already. Very clean and tidy, our room was small but in great condition. Only downside was banging and pounding from construction next door but I'm sure that will end soon. Vy is a WONDERFUL host. She provided us with a custom map with so much information as well as answered all our questions with incredible local knowledge. She also took the time to walk us to pharmacy for some medicine. Stay here!
Look no further, this is the place to stay in Ho Chi Minh City! Ms Vy is THE best! The guest house is great in itself, the rooms are very clean and modern with the best sheets we've had in SEA but Ms Vy is the one that makes the experience a must! We arrived and she welcomed us with delicious juice and a handmade map of the area + delicious food eateries. She also walked with us and ordered us our first Bahn Mi and it was delicious! Her hospitality makes you feel right at home :)!
it is more like staying at a family friends than a hotel. I felt welcomed and taking care of at every stage and ended up staying longer. would recommend it without hesitation. the staff are amazing but the location is great also. thank you Vy and family :)
The reviews do not lie, Ms. Vy is wonderful and will bend over backwards to help you, including taking guests on city excursions herself. She has a wealth of knowledge about the city, & made our stay in Saigon wonderful, making us wish we'd had an extra day or two. Definitely a step above most hostels, with rooms being cleaned daily. We had a leak with our A/C and it was quickly resolved. You leave this hostel, feeling more like you've participated in a home stay than visited a hostel.
Vy and her family are lovely to stay with and very helpful. Vy even helped me get my luggage fixed by taking me to a place and negotiating a price for me. i would stay with them again!

Hotel was down an alleyway, down an alleyway. Felt nervous walking back after sunset. We were placed across the street at her cousins place. The "lobby" was their home and always filled with husband and wife and children and toys, which would have been fine if this was a home stay but it's billed as a hotel. Also, every time we left they came into our room to adjust the air. We had no problem turning off the AC when we left for the day but entering our room is unacceptable.
Such a lovely little spot. The rooms are very cosy and the family very helpful in organising trips around Ho Chi Mind City. Great location also..right by where buses stop.
We really enjoyed our stay here, they let us leave our bags when we went in an over night trip. The place is run by a local family however when we were robbed they weren't much help as to what we should do. But as a good located place to stay it is really worth it. We had welcome drinks on arrival and they were very attentive cleaning cleaning our room daily.
Stayed only one night, but it was great! Vy was so helpful from the minute we stepped into the hostel - she gave us helpful tips and suggestions on where to go eat, drink, etc. She also helped us with booking train tickets, which was very appreciated! The room was really good as well - clean and spacious. Wish we had stayed longer! Highly recommend staying here and would definitely go back next time HCM!
Not a place you would go for a social environment but Ms.Vy was incredibly helpful and gave excellent reccomendations and insider information on Saigon.
Cosy little place. Great for airport transfer. Just take bus 152 from the airport (6am to 6pm and walk 5 mins from Ben Than bus station to the hostel. Small any problem in our room which we sorted with spray. But hey that's Asia!
Excellent guest house located in the main tourist area but off the Main Street so much quieter. Very welcoming hosts who made sure everything we needed was sorted (tours etc) and gave great advice about where to eat, what to do. Clean double room with en suite, A/C, TV and excellent free wifi. Would definitely stay again.
Very nice owner and she is very knowledgeable of the area.
Really pleasant stay at Vy's guesthouse during our short stay in HCMC. Vy was extremely welcoming and helpful and the guesthouse enabled us to explore much of the city by foot. Great location with good eating and drinking in the immediate area. Great value too.
Ms. Vy was a fantastic host and her recommendations and assistance were phenomenal. The accommodation was perfect, clean, quiet and incredibly well located. I would highly recommend staying here.
