When travelling, we sometimes get very concerned about the price for the place that we are going to stay. Many of us forgot that we will get what we pay. But sometimes, we might get something below than our expectations. The Vietnam Guide writer, M.R.Danial does a quick inspection for hotel recommendations in backpacker area of Pham Ngu Lao. If you don’t want to stay in a smelly, dark staircase and spooky hotel, here are some quality hotels for you to choose.
The factors to choose hotels in backpacker area will be:
- Always value for money. Check if there are any complimentary breakfast, free internet, free mineral water, coffee and tea.
- Clean and tidy room and pathway.
- No bad smell or spooky things in the room and pathway.
- Professional receptionist instead of too chatty with customers or between colleagues.
- Good lighting in the lobby area, pathway and in the room.
- Good water pressure (especially at higher floor)
