A solid offering
Located in the centre of the backpacker area, Phan Lan 2 Guesthouse, not to be confused with the former Phan Lan on Bui Vien, is another solid guesthouse at a decent price.
The look is rather drab, but the rooms are decently sized and comfortable. The lack of an elevator can make staying on the higher floors a work out, but once inside you'll have most of the necessary amenities, including air-con, free WiFi and TV. The free breakfast is also quite good. Currently, nearby construction may make sleeping in difficult, so if you're a light sleeper pack earplugs.
