This guesthouse was in a great location. The staff were super friendly & helpful. They booked the bus for us to Cambodia for $12 each and the service was great. Breakfast was lovely-try the pancakes. Laundry service available, computers to use & wifi. Overall a great budget guesthouse.

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.
