....service. Terrible rooms. This is not a hotel. It is a backpackers. Don't think it is anything else. If you expect a backpackers than it won't be that bad. Plumbing sounds like a Boeing preparing for lift off all through the night. Always nice to hear when someone two floors above you decide to relieve themselves 1 o clock at...

Stayed for 3 days when we first arrived in Ho Chi Minh. We were very sleep deprived so we were thankful for the great service. When our taxi pulled up a male receptionist took our bags uo the stairs while anither held the door open. The service continues to be great. The room was big enough for two friends. Was...

...unless loud music helps you sleep. I thought if I booked a bit more expensive room I might get something well above the street. Nup. Room 101 ( the receptionist told me there were no others available last night) is right on the street above reception and 4 metres line of sight from the substantial amplifier used by the street...

I was lucky having the room only for a night. The room was completely different than the pictures I saw on Internet. No windows and very unsecured/unsafe door as well as very poor breakfast service. The only good thing of the hotel was in the middle of busy restaurants and pubs street.

Having stayed in multiple hostels and hotels during our Vietnam trip, this was the last one on the itinerary and it was nothing superlative. The rooms are quite small with an equally small bathroom. Basic amenities are minimum and even the first bottle of water when you arrive in the room is billed for. The location is a plus point...

This hotel is great located. Very famous Bui Vien street with lots of pubs, restaurants, shops, massage and Bahn Mi stands. In a day time it is normal street, in the night time is completely different. Dont miss to visit this street when you will be in Ho Chi Minh City. Hotel has clean rooms, hot shower, breakfast on the...

Stayed 2 nights, one on the way to Vung Tau and one on the way home. Situated in the middle of backpackers in District 1. Loud, brash and entertaining. Double rooms were good at $34aud a night, including breakfast in the rooftop cafe. The rooms are comfortable with the usual amenities. A stocked fridge and wi-fi in the room. Breakfast...

With the price, what else can you expect? You are living in the middle of the most happening place at night. Of course, there will be some minor noise from the nearby clubs and pubs. But isn't it what you are looking for when you choose to stay in the middle of night life district? During the day time, the...

This budget hotel is on the main backpackers street. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was quite small and didn't have a window but it was clean and adequate for a short stay. The breakfast in the morning is on the roof top and has a good view of the city. There are many hotels around this area....

On arrival we had been moved to the sister Meraki Boutique 'Hotel' 50m down the road. Cannot quibble about the location - we knew that was to be expected as we purposefully booked in that area because of the nightlife. However, maybe we were unfortunate - we were put in Room 1, which was behind reception. Nothing like the website...
