I stayed here for 3 nights with my partner, all good, smiling faces and everyone nice as pie. But I left a day early and my gf stayed one night on her own. On the last morning she used a heating element to heat water for a coffee in the room, one of those little things that travelers use for...

The good: Fantastic location. Really nice and helpful family owners. Daughter speaks flawless English, and since they don't list on line, was a great email communicator. Large room with cold AC, lots of windows, and good sized balcony. The Not As Good: The shower is very awkward. Its a hybrid wet bathroom (normal) and western. but should just be wet....

Stayed here for 4 nights and it was everything we could have needed and more! The owners were exceptionally friendly and gave us some fantastic recommendations on where to eat. The room was pretty basic but it was clean and spacious so we couldn't have asked for more! Don't really understand the negative reviews on here... My guess is those...

In a great location close to the backpacker quarter and certainly walkable to the sights we wanted to see e.g. war museum and independence palace amongst others. It literally is down a back alley so be aware of that as I couldn't find it at first. It's close to one of the bus stations too and we got the bus...

Ly Loan is tucked away in a back alley right in the heart of the backpacker district in HCMC. It is a very simple setup with all the basic needs. I had solid internet the whole time here with 3 hotspots to log into. It is a very easy walk to the backpacker district nightlife (Which was insanely busy for...

Stayed here for two nights. The hosts were absolutely lovely and always happy to help. We got some great tips from the lady and her daughter and the host even managed to get us a taxi to the airport for just 160,000 dong! Bargain! The rooms are simple but very clean and the air con and wifi both work great!...

This has probably been our favorite guesthouse experience so far on our 2 month SE Asia trip. We arrived exhausted after a particularly crappy overnight bus from Phnom Penh and were warmly greeted by the guesthouse owner and her two smiling daughters. Hearing of our trip, they cleaned the room quickly so we could check in early and offered us...

I stayed here for about 4 weeks with my boyfriend in June/ July whilst he was teaching english at a summer school. The family were absolutely lovely and very accomodating. The rooms are cleaned daily and i felt our stuff was very secure! The guest house itself is very basic with no communal areas but the rooms are very well...

Upon arrival at this guesthouse we were told that we had to leave our passports and they would be taken to the police station and scanned that night and then returned to us after. Passports were returned but I noticed today that pages were REMOVED. Beware staying here and giving your passport as it may be tampered with!!
