    Default Deposit VND to Hostel Owner?

    Wondering anyone can help me on this. I wanna book this hostel and they dun have online booking, hence i emailed the email add advertised. It's actually hostel Bien Bua in Mui Ne. The owner replied me this.

    "Hello,
    You can deposit account savings account 50% in VND (dong)
    My account: NGUYEN THI TUYET LOAN ******3877940 VIETCOMBANK branch Phu THo - HO CHI MINH CITY.
    I'll keep 2 rooms for you.

    Does this mean i must go remittance centre to transfer to his account? I havent done remittance before though..

    Thx for your advice.

    Well..my budget pretty low, so i didnt bother to try those usd50 and above. I also tried Hiep Hoa and Hong Di Bungalows they fared worse..didnt even reply my emails even after i sent twice.

    or you can also try to get a room when you reach there. High chance you can get a room as there are so many hostel around. can ask to see the room before taking it.

    anyway unless you already have VND in your hands for remittance, otherwise never change VND in singapore, you will be getting a very very low rate. about 70% of what you can get if you change in VND as VND is a controlled currency

    I booked the resort for Mui Ne via the Travel Agent in HCMC..actually I booked a transport+hotel deal in HCMC, but I think it;s cheaper if u booked the hotel in Singapore via website. We did bargain with him but I din have my notebook with me so couldn;t compare the price...

    the problem is im having hard time finding official website with booking info for hostel less than usd20 per night. they have the room rates but no info on booking. They have email add but they dont respond.
