            Good Budget Accommodation”

            We only stayed one night, arrived in the evening and left the following morning. The staff were very helpful in arranging airport transfers and above all they were happy and welcoming. As long as you are not looking for more than backpacker accommodation the Banana Leaf presents good value for money. If you are travelling with heavy luggage request lower floors because the stairs are a little tricky.

            Only One Downside ”

            This hotel has everything going for it. Location is great. Family staff are great. Facilities are great. Has all you need. Room, good bed, air conditioning, fan, hot water, WiFi. The only downside is the nearby nightclub. 10 pm till 4 am it's boom boom music. So .... earplugs are supplied if your a light sleeper, but the boom boom bass can make the room rattle. Me, I was fine but it may bother other's. So you have been warned. Please don't stay here then complain. Yes I'd stay here again and would recommend to others if your happy with bass to go to sleep with.

            Nice people, we had the family room which was sparsely furnished but clean with a great balcony. Centrally located but in a back alley away from the noise, and the bustle of the city. It was our second time and we like this place.

            Central, but not in the middle of tourist town. Staff were friendly. Balcony/sitting area.

            We enjoyed our stay here. Everything as described, basic and clean. The location was central, without being in the middle of tourist town (edge of it). The other reviews that mentioned the music at night were correct, but we were OK with the earl plugs provided.

            Staff, location, rooms

            Great location near street food and the 'party' street. Very comfortable and clean rooms with good facilities. Very friendly staff : sometimes it felt more like a home stay! It's not going to be quiet at night but they provide ear plugs if you're a light sleeper, we had no problems getting a good night sleep.

            Budget hotel in good location”

            Hotel is very simple. We expected a bit more after reading the reviews. The room was clean. They have small terrace which was perfect to have a drink. the location is good, close to the restaurant street and market. But be aware that there is a night club beside, so you can hear the music up to 4 a.m.

            Good location, fine for short stay. Slow wifi.”

            I just stayed here one night. Not bad, good location close to the backpacker bar street and lots of food options. Room was a decent size with a window (no view) and there was a little terrace on the same floor. Aircon was quite weak, but there was also a fan pointed at the bed. Wifi was slow on the 3rd floor (this is a problem for me). I wished there was a top sheet for the bed, it only had a blanket, and you wonder if those get washed every time. I could hear the club nearby, but it didn't bother me, especially with the fan on. They have a little luggage elevator. Staff were nice, but I annoyed the guy by coming back late (you have to ring a bell to get in).

            Familyroom with 3 beds is nice. Our kids loved the bathtub. The rooftop sittingarea is great - could ude some light though. The family who rund the place is nice. Some of them only speak very little english. They were confused about our Agoda reservation more than once, but when her saw the agoda confirmation it was fine. Area is nice - Many sights and parks in walkingdistance. Walk away from the most touristy streets and you will find affordable food and a great supermarked.

            Had a great stay here with a kind family with solid wifi, hot water, great location, and great recommendations on food. The owner is always happy to help. Although the other family members don't speak as much English as the owner, he's very quick with communication via email or through a call you can make or his family can make. There are stairs, but worth a small climb.

            Good option for few days in HCMC”

            I stayed here for 2 nights, the staff was nice and helpful. The hotel is in a small street that can be hard to fine, close to many restaurants but a little far from museum (but it can be done by walking). I was in the 5th floor (lift is provided for your bags dont worry), it is good as you have a nice view on the rooftop but can be easily noisy when other travellers settle here at night. The room and bathroom were ok, but it could use a makeover.

            Disco next to this hotel. You know you're in for a long night when the room comes with earplugs. Hard to find someone in the hotel who spoke enough English. No elevator. Power sockets fell out of power points. This is a real budget hotel and you get what you pay for

            Good location close to the walking street but a little tricky to find. The owners and their family were very helpful and really friendly. They let us leave our bags after check out for the day and let us sit and relax in the sitting room while we waited to catch our night bus!
