Phan Anh Backpacker Hostel was one of the first in a new wave of flashier Pham Ngu Lao budget lodgings, more about modern comforts than lively, social atmosphere.

Air-con throughout, accommodation here comes in two flavours: dorm rooms with six beds and private rooms. The air-con dorm rooms are similar to the dorms found at other places in this alley at 373 Pham Ngu Lao—each room comes with three metal bunks, and each bed with its own light and power plug. White walls and a wide window help to keep things bright with natural light.

There are also lockers and each dorm has an ensuite shared bathroom with a shower stall—always a welcome touch as this means the entire bathroom doesn’t get wet after each time someone takes a shower.

The private room is one of the cheapest in the alley by a dollar. They are large and have all the amenities that you’d expect at that price point (for Saigon budget hotels), such as TV, air-con and a big private bath. Overall, Phan Anh feels clean and orderly.

Smart metal-framed dorm beds.

There are no grand views to enjoy, nor a common room for lounging or socialising, though the location puts you in a good position to enjoy the Pham Ngu Lao nightlife without having to deal with it as you try to sleep. You’ll find alley 373 on the western side of Pham Ngu Lao and the alley is much quieter than some of the other densely packed, narrow alleys in the area, like 40 Bui Vien.
