About the place

The Mothership

Welcome to Christina's Saigon! If you can venture into our alleys here, you can venture into alleys anywhere. The alleys are where Christina’s is at our best!

Alley (Hem) 212B Nguyen Trai is perfectly located for travelers seeking authentic Vietnamese culture while having all the modern convenience just a few steps away. Get lost in this massive enclave of urban Vietnamese culture by simply stepping outside our gates or escape from the 24/7 city-bustle of Saigon for a peaceful night of sleep.

At this house, our common space includes a large common area, a full kitchen, a covered balcony, and our main office on the ground floor where guests are welcome to zone out or get productive!

Guest access

Guests have 24/7 access to the building, which includes a shared kitchen, a reading room, and any other shared space, except for the rooftop, which closes at 11 PM.

Interaction with guests

Our team is available in person or via Airbnb messages 24/7. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you need help. Otherwise, we’ll leave you to adventure Vietnam.

The neighborhood

Our home is tucked away in an alley, away from all the noise of Saigon’s busy streets. Everything you need is only a few steps away – 24hr convenience stores, restaurants, bars, cafes and even parks.

Our alleyway is also a famous for a restaurant called “Oc Dao” and here you will be able to find a Vietnamese specialty – sea snails. Make sure to give it a go if you are a seafood lover.

We’re also about a 10-minute walk away from Ben Thanh Market and all that it entails, and just a 5-minute walk from the backpacker district consisting of Bui Vien and Pham Ngu Lao, as well.

Nguyen Hue (Walking Street) and the tourist sites that surround it aren’t far off either – so you can make a great day out of exploring our alleys and sights!

Getting around

From our location, you can pretty much walk to most places in the tourist area. However, taxis are readily available too for ~15k VND per km. Ride hailing app Grab (Uber of southeast Asia) are the cheapest options to get around. They also offer the bike options so you can avoid traffic.

Ben Thanh city bus station is just in front of the market if you want to be adventurous and try our local buses to get to another part of the city.

Other things to note

We recommend that you take advantage of Onetrip’s donation-based City Tour run by local university students seeking cultural exchange opportunities with foreign travelers. It is a great way to orient yourself within the city and see all the beautiful landmarks of Saigon.

We also offer some of the best adventures so make sure to check with us if you're interested.

House rules

Our #1 RULE is to treat our home as if it were your own - unless your home resembles that of a college frat house, in which case think of your grandma’s home instead =) With that being said, the following rules are implemented out of necessity in order to ensure everyone’s safety and comfort.

STRICTLY NO SMOKING inside the property. Any signs of smoking inside our property will result in a USD$250 cleaning fee for restoration of our property and availability loss to get the unit ready for our next guests. Additionally, we reserve our rights to ask guests who break our policies to leave immediately without refund.

MUST REGISTER all over-night visitors. This is actually required by the law but is also a good practice to ensure everyone's safety. You will be held completely responsible for any wrongdoing such as causing damage, being negligent (ie: leaving the gate to our home unlocked), and being disrespectful to those around. Standard extra guest fees will also be applied accordingly.

NO SHOES inside the house. We understand this can be an issue for some people, but that is the Vietnamese custom and we also love to keep our floors clean. Maybe you’ll make a habit of it back home!

A SOCIAL ACCOMMODATION - We strive to provide you with a one-of-a-kind experience that is different to what you get at hotels and hostels – something more responsible, more human, and ultimately more valuable. We believe that our mission aligns perfectly well with Airbnb’s community. With that in mind, please do not treat our members or our services like you would at a hotel. If you’re looking for 24/7 room service, we strongly suggest that you book your accommodation elsewhere. But if you’re looking for a chilled out, cozy atmosphere…a home away from home, then by all means book with us.

HAVE RESPECT for those around you. All of the rules listed above are simply to encourage our guests to be respectful towards one another and together build a better, more social and responsible community.

CONSEQUENCES for breaking these rules can unfortunately result in the offender(s) being asked to leave, in addition to providing compensation for losses or damages caused. We will have complete discretion on whether to offer a refund for the unused portion of the reservation. So far, we have not asked any guest to leave and we would prefer to keep it that way for as long as we can, so please help us keep the friendly streak going.

Other than that, all that is left to say is that we hope you have a wonderful stay and that you will fall in love with this beautiful city just like we did.
