About this listing
A Great Authentic Experience A Vietnamese https://www.airbnb.com/manage-listing/921816/pricinghomestay with my family.
We live in a typical Vietnamese house, in a typical family neighborhood, on a typical pedestrian street.
Our newly built house has five floors. We rent two private rooms. Each room offers a comfortable queen size bed, a private bathroom, air-conditionning, fan, tv, wifi, large window and glass door to let in natural light (with good curtains if you wish to be in the dark!), and a small balcony overlooking streetlife. Each room can accomodate 2 persons.
You are welcome to use our kitchen or whatever facility our house offers. Many of our previous guests really enjoyed the 360 view offered from our roof top terrace at sunrise, sundown, or to see the city lights in the evening.
We live in district 8, just on the other side of the bridge that brings you in district 1 where most tourists attractions are and in district 5, Cholon, the famous Chinese neighborhood, and district 4 along the river going to Saigon river opposite district 1. From another the bridge reach Phu My Hung distric 7 such as new city with restaurant and shopping small exhibition event. we are living on the island.
During the day, you can take bus 152 and in less than 10 minutes, it will drop you at the Ben Thanh market or directly at the Ben Thanh bus station, near the Reunification Palace or the War museum,... from there you can walk any where in district 1. If you keep going on that same bus, you can even reach the airport in about 50 minutes just cost 5000 vnd ( 25 cents )
It is also possible to walk over the bridge for about 1,5 km and catch bus number 1 at any time. It can bring you downtown quickly to Le Loi street near the Opera, the famous hotels, major shopping streets or going the other way, to the famous market in Cholon and the Cholon bus station. Bus number 1 from 6am to 8 :30 pm Saigon Cho Lon ( downtown to China town )
District 8 is a living district. Tourists are a rare sight. On the way to my house you will be on typical commercial street with lots of traffic, restaurants, streetfood ... You will then turn on a typical small alley that will lead you to my house. That type of pedestrian alleys form mazes between major streets in HCMC. Most people live in those mazes of alleys and you will be living on one!
Much quieter then the major streets, no cars can enter! The sound of traffic from major streets becomes distant and you can now hear the sound of people living, talking, playing. Of course, the occasionnal moto has to make its way to the major street.
You will see people walking, kids playing in front of their house, families watching tv in their living room, families with little stalls in front of their house, or a little store in their living room...
A few meters from my house, you can have nice Vietnamese coffee. Within a few minutes, you will find a nice local typical market with food stalls, clothings, food market, grocery shopping...
We want your homestay at our house to be Home Away from Home for all travellers: solo, couples and families.
If this is the type of travelling you might enjoy, do not hesitate to write to me. Each room is 19$/night for 1 person and 25$ for 2.

Other Things to Note
feel free in my place. sweet home away home :)
Thanks for hosting us, Pham. We arrived around noon and it wasn't that difficult to find the house in the narrow alley. I guess going into the narrow alley could be a bit scary if you arrive at night though. There seemed to be a double booking, but we managed to get it resolved and Pham offered to move us to another house, which was closer to the city centre. Everything that we needed was available and our stay was enjoyable.
Linh's beautiful house felt like home away from home. She is warm, friendly, generous, street smart and approachable. Her house is a perfect location for those who would like to explore Ho Chi Minh and come home to a quiet place. Street food and authentic Vietnamese coffee are a walk away from her house. Ask her what you need and she can guide you with a reliable travel agency if you'd like to explore Cu Chi Tunnel and other historical places. She is honest and will share important information like what cab companies to take. Quick to reply so coordination is made easy. She is a wonderful person and reliable host.
We arrived at night and got by taxi to Linh which was as she describes 10$. As we arrived the room was prepared nice for us and she asked instantly if we need help with something such as information of places to go at night and places to eat in Saigon. The house is also quite in the center and everything is easy to find from her stay. Linh and her family welcomed us very warmly and we had a great time there! We also enjoyed the daily morning coffee in her neighborhood. We will come again here :)
pham이 사는 집에서 보낸 하루는 좀 더 호치민의 사람사는 동네를 볼 수 있었던 것 같아요. 집집마다 키우는 닭소리가 아침을 깨우고 저녁에는 골목에 아이들이 뛰어 노는 동네에요:) pham이 직접 고른 그녀의 취향인 린넨이불이 너무 마음에 들었고 청결했습니다. 아침에 그녀와 동네 시장구경하며 마신 코코넛음료가 참 시원했어요. Pham덕분에 아무 계획없이 온 호치민으로의 여행이 풍요로워 졌어요. 혼자 오신다면 pham이 좋은 친구가 되어 줄지 몰라요:)추천합니다
Linh was waiting for us when we arrived there, and gave us all the informations we needed for a comfortable stay. The communication was good enough in spite of two different linguistic backgrounds. What is most important for stangers in a foreign country is to feel safe as in my home. in this sense, Linh's home was perfect.
Our stay with Linh was incredible. The house was perfect, but more importantly the people were amazing. Linh was so hospitable and made our stay in HCM all the more better.
Can't wait to return, thanks for everything
Linh, Yo, and the whole family were really nice. They showed us around everywhere, helped us organize a trip to mekong. Showed us an authentic time in Saigon. I would highly recommend staying here.
