I stayed in Halo Guesthouse last year (December 2012) and stayed there for 3 nights or so. Best thing I love about it is that the dorm room in the third floor (IIRC) is big, and there's a huge space in the center. First night I stayed there, I went out to dinner with 3 other guests, only because the... More

The room looked like it wasn't cleaned for weeks. Blanket without sheets, dirty towels etc. And someone tried to get into our room at 1:30 in the night. We had the most horrible night there. Before staying there ever again I would prefer sleeping on a park bench...

We booked a transfer to... More

This family run guesthouse is generally acceptable, not that clean but basic. But I encountered a bad experience of being defrauded by one of their family member – the youngest brother of the family (called “Toan”). He could not speak English. One day the USB of my phone did not work, so I had to buy a new one. I... More

This guesthouse is located in touristic district in Saigon. Though it's one of the cheapest hostel in Saigon,the room was kept quite clean and we could feel comfortable. Neighboring bar can be annoying at night,but it is only problem I found. They have travel agency as well, the staffs are really charming and friendly. They tried to find bus or... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Halo Guesthouse. In total I stayed in the top room dorm for approximately 10 days. It is has an excellent location in District 1 Saigon. Close to all the action. The only drawback of this is that if you are looking for a very quiet place, away from music at night then is perhaps... More
