A cozy place with a very warm family

A very cozy place, run by a very warm family. Made me feel at home the first day. The room was very clean. The bed comfy. A very pleasant experience.
Only one of the ladies spoke English, which made communication a bit cumbersome when she was not there.

Like a homestay

This place is a real home. I enjoyed every single day with my hosts. Bathroom is cleaner than the hotel I stayed before. It takes only 10 minutes to the center by taxi or motorbike. You can get very good fruits at a local market.

房间很舒适 挺干净 我们去的时候很晚 晚上12点多到的 然后房主夫妻都睡了 还起来招呼我们 也很nice 我们第二天早上六点多出门 老板娘还给我们准备了早饭 虽然就是六个鸡蛋 感觉超级淳朴 房间里有自带的wifi 房间也很漂亮
地点实在太偏 我们晚上12点半 从出租车下车点走进去 黑漆漆的弄堂 昏暗的灯光 很吓人 因为是家庭旅馆的原因 房主夫妇很早就睡了 整栋房子都关灯了 锁了门 门前也没醒目标志 是看了booking提供的前门照片才确认的 早上赶着出门 老板娘说只能现金付账 在赶航班的背景下又去取钱 然后本来订的34美金的房间 老板娘硬说要给一百万盾 后来沟通会 才同意付34美金 但汇率算的很高 我们因为赶时间也就算了 也给大家提个醒吧

Nice homestay

The family is very friendly, there are very kind and they make sure that you have all what you need to visit HCMC. The food is delicious. The room are comfortable and clean.
Not all the family can speak English and it's sometimes difficult.

Worth it to find out authentic Vietnam

It's not a hotel! If you consider this - there will be no surprises for you! Really authentic! Hosts are very hospitable!

Alles super und sehr hilfreiche Hosts

Wir wurden sehr nett begrüßt und direkt auf einen umliegenden Markt von Einheimischen geführt. Viele Tipps zu Saigon und zum Süden von Vietnam. Generell alles sehr hilfreich. Sauber und gut ausgestattet.
Englisch war sehr schwer zu verstehen

Ottima soluzione per visitare Saigon ma non centrale

Ottima soluzione per visitare Saigon. Non vicina al centro. Abbiamo affittato una moto ed è stato divertente andare avanti e indietro dal centro. Casa pulitissima e comoda in un quartiere assolutam non turistico. Ospiti gentilissimi e molto disponibili, nonostante qualche gap linguistico.

Authentic, Hahnenkampf vor der Tür inclusive

Die Vermieter haben einen für die drei Tage als Freunde in ihre Familie aufgenommen! Wer ein wenig abseits des Mainstream-Tourismus das reale Saigon kennenlernen möchte, hat hier eine klasse Gelegenheit dazu und dies 5 Minuten vom Stadtkern entfernt! In den schmalen Gassen abseits der Hauptstraße spielt sich das normale Familienleben der Nachbarschaft auf der Straße ab und man wird z.b. Zeuge, wie die Familienhähne gegeneinander antreten!

Amazing, warm homestay! Authentic as they come!

We absolutely loved our time here with Linh and her family. It was a real treat being welcomed into the home. We were always offered food, loads of advice and taken to the local cafe for Vietnamese coffee. The room is comfy and clean. Staying here really made our time in Saigon special. Spending time here feels like staying with old friends, so I couldn't recommend it enough!

This is a real homestay, in an authentic bustling Saigon...

This is a real homestay, in an authentic bustling Saigon neighbourhood, and in a typical hin high-rise one-family home, still quiet due to being located on a little inner street. Linh is extremely sweet and friendly, speaks amazing English and has tons of tips for your visit in Vietnam. She took us to the local eatery for an unforgettable breakfast and our first ca phe sua da :) Bus 152 goes there directly from the airport (and through Ben Than station) for just 5,000 dong per person!

Best Homestay in Saigon

Linh (our host) was super friendly. She ensured that we have a great time in Saigon. Bear in mind its a homestay and not a hotel. And you do get the homely feeling with this lovely family.

Good value for money

Very good experience. Nice hosts and excellent breakfast :)
A bit difficult to find. The GPS coordinates are not correct.
