Hanh, the younger lady, was very nice. Excellent place for backpackers as there is drinking party every night along Bui Vien. Hostel building is relatively new and we had a comfy stay. We had the big room with window which was really nice but wifi works only along the stairs (and inner rooms i guess).
We also booked tours from Hanh which were Delta tours. Had a bit of misunderstanding with Cu Chi entrance fee though.
The old lady across the street sells the best banh mi and sticky rice! We miss her a lot. Go to 102 for cheap draft beer and 100 for cafe sua da.
