      Cheap, clean and comfy”

      We really enjoyed our stay at California Guest House. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfy (with aircon and a fridge which isn't advertised on Agoda). The Guest House is located on a back street so it's relatively quiet (apart from a neighbours birds, but quite nice to wake up too), it is about a 10/15min walk to the main backpackers area and restaurants. The facilities were great, really good wifi and a communal kitchen where you are provided eggs, bread, bananas, tea and coffee to make your breakfast. All in all a very pleasant stay.

      This is a great location for those who want to walk to through the main areas in or near District 1, but don't want the noise and hustle. Comfortable room too with hot water in the shower. Thao, one of the employees, has a really cool list of cafes in the city posted on the wall in the lobby. I would definitely check out one of the cafes and just ask her general suggestions if she's around!

The staff was amazing, very helpful with all our questions and needs. Good breakfast. Big and very comfortable rooms.

      Great for us, away from the main tourist drag”

      A very nice, laid back place but don't expect too much for the cheap price. It's clean and comfortable, air-con, fridge etc works well, rooms are a good size. The do-it-yourself kitchen was very useful for us at breakfast, tho hotel provides bread, jam, eggs and bananas, also tea and coffee. You can buy more of your own food and keep in the kitchen, there are lots of utensils for cooking. Also, access to the washing machine in the kitchen was great, do your own washing any time. Surrounded by lots and lots of very nice street-food. What not to expect- room being cleaned every day, info on tours etc, shampoo/toothbrush etc provided in the room. This is a nice but no frills place and it suited us very well.

      Real Vietnam in the heart of Saigon ”

      Located on a quiet alley in the heart of Saigon I felt entirely safe and comfortable. All staff speak good English and have local knowledge to share/advise you with. I'm totally in awe of the shower, it's dreamy, soft, waterfall sensation is just what I needed to comfort and relax. The rooms are deceptively large with tv, fridge, aircon, wifi. I wish I could stay longer as it is literally on the doorstep of all the sights and sounds of Saigon. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

      The hotel in itself was very correct and clean room. Good point : we arrived very early (6 am) in the morning when we were supposed to arrive the day before in the evening, and we could have the room anyway for a few hours before check out. It was nice of them to not leave us in the street after the rough night we had.

      All was going well here until we had cockroaches in our room. One in the first night found on our bed, didn't sleep well. We just thought once off. Until the next night and there was more. Disgusting, rooms had a weird smell on entering I thought nothing of it. Its a pity because otherwise the place is great - good self service brekkie and use of kitchen. Close to places also. They did our laundry free due to issue- Thank you. Our room was in top floor. Hard to get a staff member at times.
