Our room was very very tiny and had no window - the price was obviously too high for that. We had free breakfast which was okay. The staff there was nice and they offered really cheap trips to Mekong Delta. It is located in a small alley in the Backpacker quarter of HCMC.

The guesthouse itself is expensive for what it was. The place wasn't up to much and the rooms weren't amazing. The rooms were small and the TV was terrible and reception even worse. The room was clean and tidy and was nice to have a mini fridge in the room. You are free to use the computers down stairs as...
