Xin Chào!

Welcome to Ho Chi Minh city! It's nice to have you with us. Situated right at the heart of the financial area within a Indochine building. Fuse yourself into the 80s of Saigon and the 10s of HCMC right here.

Every famous is within walking distance, bar and cafes is within the residence so finding a spot to hangout is not that hard. Thriving for a run? We have the Saigon river just in front. Meeting your friends in D2? Hop-on the river bus, it's connected!

See you soon!

The space

I hope you can feel like home staying at my place.

The apartment is in DOWNTOWN - make it easy to wander on your feet or grab taxis, motortaxis, cyclos, etc. Yet super SAFE (we are in front of Vietnam National Bank). After all, we're all looking for a good rest after all these exploring, aren't we? I do have earplugs to make sure you can get great sleep too!

THE PROJECTOR IS HERE!!
This 2nd floor apartment is sized at 40 square meters.

Your room has premium touch of odorless paint, wooden floor and free unlimited internet, plus:
+ A friendly host who would never dodge your messages. I do share my stories, would you share yours?
+ A full size bed along with fluffy pillows (standard of two, need more? Let me know.)
+ Fast and unlimited internet at zero cost to you (don't torrent, others will suffer)
+ A/C that actually blows cold air (an orange fan will be there if you can't stand the A/C)
+ A Projector which can project a hundred inches screen. Movies, games check and check!
+ An easy access hot shower, just twist the big knob.
+ Clean linens upon your arrival as well as towels and floor mats.
+ A modernized wardrobe.
+ Hair dryer comes at standard
+ Iron too!
+ A chit chat section with comfortable orange cushioned chairs and oversized dining table
+ A mezzanine that you can store your stuff

The common area is equipped with:
+ Fridge stuffed with drinks (ever wonder there is no 'd' in refrigerator?).
+ Food 24/7
+ Hot water just a click away.
+ Utensils and bowls in case you has the urge of using something to eat in a proper way.
+ Local spices.
+ Coffee phin for an authentic Vietnamese coffee. We have instant coffee if you're in a hurry.
+ Complementary cold water and ice.
+ A yellow door


THE RIDE FROM SGN
The taxi ride from Tan Son Nhat airport to my place is about $10 ~ VND220,000 or LESS (everything included). You can also take an Uber ride ( it's a ride sharing application - Airbnb for car). If you have not downloaded the Uber app to your smartphone, you can sign in on using this referral code: rq82m
Doing so, you will get a discounted first ride. That's correct, cheaper than traditional taxis from Tan Son Nhat to my place.

ME
I've spent 80% of my life here in Saigon so I'm pretty much a local Saigonese. Don't hesitate to ask for help if you need anything. I will make sure to fulfill your wish at no to minimum cost. Just tell me your wish

THE TOURS
If you're planning on visiting other landmarks like Cu Chi tunnel, Mekong Delta, etc. let me know and I'll see to arrange your bus,I've been using this local tour operator and they know their ways, pretty affordable too. Save your money on the next trip.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST:
If you like the place but it is acquired by somebody else, txt me, I have a different room in the house that has just as cool design.
Satisfaction guaranteed!!

Thanks Tyler, is it supposed to be 'host' instead of 'Goat'? Haha

A nice and convenient room, placed in an old building in city center. A few cafes and shops in the building. The host Minh responded promptly in any time. He is a caring person, ready to serve and help. Free mini bar; soft drinks and cans of beer in the refrigerator. Drinking water offered also. I recommend this place to those who like to experience local life in the heart of Saigon.

This is the place to stay at in HCMC - champion location, lovely projector with wi-fi to sit in and Netflix late at night, refrigerator, and extremely spacious for two. It's a 4 minute walk to the Bitexo tower, which is the tallest building in the city. It's a short walk to almost everything that one has to see in District 1, and if lost, one can find your way back by looking for the Bitexo tower, which is visible from almost all parts of district 1. Minh was an excellent host - available at all times to answer our queries. A lovely speakeasy is located right below the apartment, so it's great to pop by for a late night drink. The apartment itself is in a lovely building - housing quaint little cafes and clothes shops. Lots of cafes/ restaurants within close proximity to satisfy cravings. Five stars.

Really nice, spacious and affordable apartment. The building is really cool too and has a great cafe on the top floor. Minh was an amazing host as well. Very communicative and helpful. The location is a pretty short (and less than 1 USD) Grab-bike ride from the main backpacker street with all the restaurants and nightlife. There is also a cool bar above this apartment which was noisy during the weekend late nights- earplugs were an easy fix for those few nights. Overall, great stay!

This studio apartment is stunning! I would recommend that you check out this apartment while it last. They have a soft opening through the rest of the month so the price is worth it. Minh speaks perfect English and he has an awesome apartment. I got a free beer on the house and I felt like it was my own place. I love that there was a projector screen that plays music videos and video games online. The location is absolutely perfect as it is above one of the most famous bars in Vietnam. If you're a fan of the huge sky bar in town, it is a two minute walk from the apartment. I have a trip to Hong Kong on Thursday so I hope to book this place again.

I've spent a few years in the States, traveled almost every big state of the U.S. with my brother driving my car (100% Saigonese). I do drink, not like drinking drink but a beer or two, because no good story started with water! I wanna learn other languages from you (swearing too), in exchange I'll help you with Vietnamese (no bad words).
We'd love to invite you to our little space, your Saigon home is here. This house is my way of showing how a Saigonese would treat friends from other part of the globe. Welcome to my crib.
