Yellow House Hotel

Labyrinthine hostel

What we say: 3.5 stars

Yellow House Hotel sits on busy Bien Vien in a large, labyrinthine building with rooms packed deep inside. Rooms are small, uninspiring and most could use a good cleaning. Noise is an issue, but more so on the higher levels. Air-con is available in all rooms as is WiFi, however good connection throughout the building is hit or miss. A relative rarity in Saigon, Yellow House has real hostel dorms that sleep eight in very tight quarters. Bathrooms are located just outside the door. This makes it one of the better places to stay for solo travellers as it is much easier to meet people here than surrounding hotels, especially at the free breakfast.
