“1st time in Vietnam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

This was our first hotel in Vietnam and what a gem,we were delayed for one day in Doha thanks to Qatar Airways but we still got free airport pick up (there was an offer on,stay two days or more and you get free airport pick up) and we were ok for the additional day at no extra cost,it's a decent cheap hotel in the heart of the action.We booked Halong Bay from the hotel,it's a lottery whether you get a good boat or bad,we left our baga there while we went on the trip,we then shipped out to Nihn Bhin again arranged by the hotel,all went to plan with no problems,great pavement food outside the hotel.

Room Tip: On a buget but worried it's a bit to cheap to be good,don't worry you will be fine.

A great little family run place, where you are looked after and helped every step of the way. It is split across two sides of an alleyway - you will need help first time to find it, but they are very efficient in picking you up from the airport at a good price, or meeting you from any number of nearby drop off points. It is in the heart of the backpacker/hotel district, and a short walk away from most of the key sites.

They have plenty of tours, packages and so on, but will only offer advice on these when asked for them. Otherwise, other than being very friendly and helpful, they leave you to enjoy your holiday.

Highly recommended.

The guesthouse is located in easy walking distance from many sites and Vy has a really good map that she supplies to her guests. Booking tours through them is easy and well worth it. The rooms are clean and well kept, and has its own bathroom and shower. They'll pick you up from the airport for much cheaper than a taxi.

A wonderful place to stay. You come as guests but leave as family :)

at first me and my partner was a little confuse when we arrived at the alley. Apparently this hostel is located in a very narrow alley. By the time we reached the hostel, we were greeted by a lovely family who served us a very refreshing welcome drink. The room is very clean, and also the bathroom. water heater works perfectly and also the AC.

One of our favourite places we have stayed on a backpacking trip across Asia. Run by a lovely family, the rooms are clean and comfortable and location is great, the guesthouse is down an alleyway so you can sleep but is still literally steps away from the heart of the backpacker area with loads of bars and restaurants. Booked our bus to Nha Trang with the guesthouse and all went smoothly, overall loved it would definately go back.

Prompt airport pick up, located in the middle of the backpackers area, so easy access to shopping and eating places. Room was small but very very clean and cosy. Owners also helped us to book tours and taxis. Very helpful and we were always greeted with smiles :) We could also exchange currency with them. The way the guesthouse was built (as all other houses are) was built upwards but narrow, so we walked about 4 narrow flights of stairs up to our room. Enjoyed my stay there!

Tucked behind a corner in an alleyway in the middle of Ho Chi Minh is Vy Khanh Guesthouse. Run efficiently by a mother and daughter team, this place was an awesome place to stay in during my two nights in Vietnam.

The room is spotless. Spartan, yet practical. Amenities include free internet, wifi, hot water, and informative suggestions/advice on where to go in and around Ho Chi Minh City.

Both mother and daughter speak English and are knowledgeable and hospitable.

My travel partner and I checked out mid afternoon, and was able to still use the facilities while waiting for our midnight bus to Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Overall, these guys are worth checking out, if you can find the room. Book in advance, as this place tends to fill up quickly!
