We really liked the hotel, close to everything, clean and internet was good.
I love the place...nice ,good staff and safe
The location is very nice if you want to be around the backpacker area. It is on one of the more pretty side streets, decorated in red lanterns, and meaning it does not have thumping bass music all night long, so you can get a quiet night's rest while still being just a minute's walk away from the heavy action. The wifi is generally good and reliable. I was robbed (on the street, not hotel related) and the hotel was very flexible to accommodate my staying longer (and credit) than expected while my bank abroad mailed me a new bank card to this location.
Contrary to the reviews online, not all the rooms have windows. A small room with no windows feels rather claustrophobic - but for $20/night I can't really expect much. There is no room service of any kind. The shower drain seems to be plugged, meaning water will flow out of the shower, out of the washroom, and into the room - not a huge deal, but a strange thing to leave unmaintained for such a long time, makes you wonder what else is unmaintained. The clock in the room doesn't work. The walls are dirty.
The location was fantastic and the staff were friendly and helpful.
Sheets were not the cleanest and there was no window in our room.
Friendly and helpful staff. Elevator. In-room safe. Location.
We were on the 5th floor and were disturbed by noise from room next door and corridor, and whatever was above us (from around 3am to 4am on first night). Also from water being pumped up to roof (?).
A stay at Southern Star Hotel - Sao Nam places you in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, steps from Pham Ngu Lao Backpacker Area and Bui Vien Walking Street. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage.
