dorm rooms in ho chi minh

Posted by brownbum on 5/1/2010 at 00:26


i can't seem to find many options for accommodation in ho chi minh - because i am looking for a mixed dorm.

but the bulk of rooms seems to be private - because i'm traveling solo, it gets quite pricey to book a double suite for one.

ideally i am looking at district 1, but at juncture, maybe i shouldnt be too picky?

help? i would appreciate any suggestions.

i am planning on traveling 1st week of feb

I'm flying in late Jan/Early Feb as well. Found a dorm room at Yellow House Hotel 31 Bui Vient, District 1 for $7 a night. Seems decent and they rent motorbikes.
