And the end of our 3 week vacation we went to Ho Chi Minh city. After spending 21 (!) hours in a sleeping bus, this guesthouse was such a relief. So friendly, so helpfull, really made us feel at home.

Very nice hostel in the heart of the backpacker district. It's located in an alley so there's no noises from the main streets. The backpacker busses conveniently depart right outside the alley. Our room was clean with airco and fans. Towels were provided. The owners were super friendly.

Despite our short stay at Kim Ngan, it felt like home. Very friendly people and clean rooms!! In a nice little alley of busy HCMC and the locals reminded us of Cambodia were we have been living last 2 months. The owners helped us out with changing money and bus tickets to Mui Ne.

I have stayed here 3 times now and I will stay again. The family are really friendly and helpfull with any questions about the city. The double rooms have large windows, as long as you keep these locked when not in your room or when sleeping you should be fine I've never had an issue as a woman traveling alone... More

The room is basic but comfortable with excellent AC and good tv channels. We also had two fans!!! Light in the room is good with two large windows and a door... More

At first I was reluctant when the owner met our bus unsolicited. But this ended up being one of the nicer places I stayed in Vietnam. Clean, comfortable, and wifi. When the wifi was down, it was easy enough to hop on a neighbor's wifi spot temporarily. 90% of the wifi in Saigon seems to use some variation of 1-0,... More

I absolutely adored staying at Kim Ngan's Guesthouse. The owner, Kim is wonderfully friendly, and would make me hot drinks all throughout the day. The entire family were lovely. They were incredibly polite, even when they had to change my room, and the rooms itself were extremely clean, spacious with cable TV. The guesthouse is located right in the heart... More

I've stayed here many times and the owner has always been very friendly and helpful. The owner has looked after some presents I accumulated whilst I travelled around Vietnam before returning to Saigon.Before I returned home this time I left a considerable amount of money with the owner for a friend to collect(which she has done) so the review doubting...
