The main draw of this hotel is the budget-friendly backpacker price. It's located in a small alley in Pham Ngu Lao, the backpacker district of Ho Chi Minh, so it's pretty accessible and there are lots of tourists in the area. The rooms are clean and basic (A/C, TV and shower), and you get what you pay for. Breakfast's standard (bread, jam, juice and coffee) but yummy.
The main reason I like this hotel is their service. We arrived late in the evening but the hotel arranged our pick-up from the airport. They also arranged our tours (Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta tours) for the next couple of days. In addition, they helped us get bus tickets to Cambodia. The receptionists (and caretakers?), Miss Thu and Chi, are very friendly and they also gave us advice on where to go around the city. You can also use the computer in the lobby for internet.
It is customary in Vietnam to take off footwear when entering the house. You can leave your shoes on the shoerack at the lobby or take them with you in your room.
Overall, our stay in the Nguyen Khang Hotel was pleasant and really value-for-money.
