    Looking for a nice quiet hostel in Ho Chi Minh City for the last part of November. Somewhere near or in the backpackers area.
    Price: abt. USD 10/12 incl. airco, bathroom, nice furniture.
    Anyone any experience?

    Madame Cuc 64 on Bui Vien is a popular choice -- there's dozen and dozens of places with very little to differentiate them. We're adding more Saigon places over the next few days...

    I stayed in a family run guesthouse in the backpackers area in Saigon, I think it was called the mimi arthouse. It was $11 a night for a double room with a/c, private bathroom, hot water & cable TV. They even included breakfast. Considering where it was, it was nice and quiet at night time. The family can arrange tours, travel arrangements etc.

    If you arrive by bus into the backpackers area, you should have plenty of offers for accommodation, you can always have a look, there is no obligation to stay if you look.

    Thanks for your replies!
    Probably it is indeed just a matter of deciding when we arrive in HCM. W'll probably come by train from Danang and take a cyclo or cab to the backpackers area (just ask for Singh Café) and then walk around a bit, using the info. on guesthouses on you website (including Mimi Arthouse).
