“Immaculately clean. Feel like one of the family.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2010

A lovely hostel with just 8 rooms run by 3 members of one family.
I felt safe leaving my stuff here and the staff were so helpful with advice on tours, transport and the general area.
The hostel is spotlessly clean but the beds were quite hard and we were woken early by building work and a cockrel crowing - so it's possibly not the best place to stay for a restful night. The location however is fantastic - just a couple of minutes from De Tham's bars and restaurants and across the road from where the long distance bus from Phnom Penh dropped us off.
A bit pricier than some other hostels in the area but you get what you pay for and this hostel was definitely worth it.

Vy Khanh is a great hostel to stay at. They welcomed us from the first booking step until we left HCMC city. Vy suggests places to go, restaurants to have some meals, unique shops, and many useful local customs so we could just walk as if we were at our own home town. The rooms were so clean, with nice amenities. They treat every guest as their own family, ensuring we have pleasant experiences in HCMC. Home away from home. Will stay there again and recommend this hostel to our friends.

Very happy that I found Ms. Vy. She is very helpful and friendly. She seemed to know every thing and ever ready for any requests. I even asked her to buy some stuff and she willingly do it and refused to take commission. I am so grateful. Will definitely stay there and reccommend the place to friends in future.

You can not go wrong!!Vy and her family are absolutely amazing, after spending 2 months away form home and feeling a little home sick Yy and her family made me feel right at home, Vy really does bend over backwards for everyone! I wanted to get some suits made and a dress so vy put me on the back of her motor bike and took me to a taylor to get the suits made and then another one to get the dress made, both taylors were amazing!
Vy also helped us choose and book what tours we wanted to go on. Also Hyland coffee OH YEH!!!!!! i am a fussy person when it comes to coffee but oh my god the coffee at hyland is great! ALso a tip of advise only take Vinsun taxis as they will not rip you off and they will always use a metre.
The rooms at Vy's were amazing, sheets and towels changed everyday, aircon, flatscreen tv, fridge with water, hot running water in shower, western CLEAN toilet. You are about a 1 min walk not even that to the main "backpakers" street of restaurants and shops and 10 min walk to the markets. I would not book anywhere else! and i WILL STAY WITH VY AGAIN!!!OUTSTANDING!

I had a nite stayed here and very happy to have the very friendly owner Ms. Vy to greet us once we arrive for check-in. The room has a private toiet and is very clean. We recommed for you to stay here cause the hotel is near by to Ben Than market and you juz walk to the market. And as a muslim, we are very happy, the muslim restaurant is juz a round corner (juz less than 1 minutes walk).... to the backpackers, we strongly recommend this place because of the cleanliness of the hotel and the price is very reasonable....

I just don't know where to start.... a great little private guesthouse with real hospitality and friendliness! We were only there for 1 night, but the lovely Vy and her charming parents made our stay most enjoyable. When we came back from Phu Quoc in the morning and were due to fly back to Germany in the eveing, Vy so kindly let us have a shower in her own private bathroom before our flight back - what a lovely guesture!! I've worked in the tourist industry for many years and have seen a lot of hotels and guesthouses... this was one of the best! Ideal for backpackers or for people looking for a non-expensive stay in a large city. Rooms were emaculate and very quiet, (very unusual in Saigon!). Free internet usage was most convienient as well.
A huge THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING to Vy and her family!
All the very best for the future!
Best wishes from Germany
Robby and Ann
