Best place to stay in district 1”

This place has everything you can ask for. Awesome breakfast menu (included, if not only 30k đồng). Clean and nice bathrooms. Very comfortable beds. Privacy curtains. Light and socket. Rooftop bar with 30k beer. Could be 20k as well - I cannot remember very well. There is restaurant right next to family mart, which is like 2 minutes to the hostel, with Obama's face on it and it is delicious. Also close to wet market. Really lively in the morning. Oh and amazing staff. Especially the receptionist lady in the morning. Very kind people. Only thing is that place could do with hand soap in the bathrooms though. Will come back definitely.

The staff is super helpful and nice. They know alot of people so they can connect you really well. Beds are awesome. I was in a 8 person dorm but it didn't even feel like it. However top bunk is very high but you don't feel your bunk mate at all. Location wise you are a 5 min walk to the grocery store, bus station,and bus stop that goes to and from the airport. You are also a 3 min walk from all the bars .

Nice room with one problem”

Pros: Main staff member speaks perfect English. Double room was nicely decorated, and breakfast was tasty (although quite standard for Vietnam). The hotel was clean and is a great location for walking to most attractions. The free drink upon check in was a nice gesture which made us feel welcome. Cons: The walls of the double room on the top floor were made of wood and had lots of gaps/holes in them. We discovered several pieces of mouse poo on our bed and even saw a mouse twice in our room. The poo was falling through some cracks in the ceiling, which i think needs to be looked at asap.

Mobylette is a nice little hostel. I liked the rooftop bar a lot, the beds are so comfy and I loved the blanket. Definitely come back when I'm in Saigon again. If I need to add something that was a bit less is the music choice at the rooftop bar, but everyone has a different taste right?!

Really great for the price. Has rooftop bar and is centrally located in the city. Experience varies a lot based on who else is in your room. No elevator. But staff is very friendly and can help you plan how to explore the city or move on to the next city.
