“Awesomeness!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

If you're looking for a clean guesthouse with great service at a great value, then stay here! Vy and her family are a wealth of knowledge. Initially difficult to find (location on Google is incorrect). The Google location for My My Arthouse is correct, about 10 meters from Vy Khanh. There is a small alley next to the Elios Hotel (good landmark) on Pham Ngu Lao. Go south down this alley and take your first left/east and it's right there. Vy can recommend all the good local eats for the foodie in all of us. Especially the Pho :) WIFI was fine. Again, the nicest family. We highly recommend and give two enthusiastic thumbs up! Stay here and join the family :)

We recently stayed twice at Vy Khanh Guesthouse, at the start and at the end of our first-time, 1-month visit to Vietnam. The staff (Ms Vy, her mother and her cousin) were friendly, helpful and treated us like family. Our room was comfortable, clean, and free from street noise (aside from occasional vendors). We would stay there again.

Room Tip: The stairs are steep and narrow, so a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor makes sense if you have heavy bag...

We stayed at Vy Khanh for our first few nights in Vietnam. This turned out to be a great decision. Vy and her family treated us as if we were long lost relatives coming for a visit. They made sure we always had what we needed and set us up with some great day tours. It was a great first impression of the country. We left feeling like family.

The staff at this guesthouse were very friendly and accommodating. Our room was very nice- spacious with a large bathroom, fridge, and TV. It was a bit on the expensive side ($20/night for a double), but I thought it was worth it. The little alley is relatively quiet (a few vendors came through in the morning hours) and charming, with access to a lot of tourist amenities. The area it is in is quite touristy, which we found convenient, but which some may not like. Good location- within walking distance of many of the important sites.

After traveling through Vietnam for one month Vy Khanh Guesthouse was my last stop, my welcome on arrival was great after a lovely man on the street directed me to the lane way, Vy had a cold drink ready and a detailed map of the area, I was traveling on my own and Vy treated me more like a friend, on my first night we jumped on Vy's bike and explored the city and ate together which I am truly grateful of, Vy's mum and dad and sister are all lovely people as well, the guesthouse is spotlessly clean and well maintained, for $20 a night in Ho Chi Minh city you will not find better, I can't wait to return to this great city and would never contemplate staying anywhere else.
Vy thank you for a wonderful stay and the great times we had.

Those who been to vietnam will tell you how busy and noisy HCM and Hanoi are. Vy khanh guesthouse is located in some back alley in district 1. don't be fooled by its location because what lie inside is really different. the location is about 10minutes walk to ben tham market where all the bustlings are located at. street foods are located everywhere near the guesthouse.
Don't expect a big room in a guesthouse but everything you need is there - A/C, water heater and cable TV. Furthermore, the vy khanh family is extremely helpful in helping us planning our short stay there in recommending and providing tours and suggestions.
I will definitely stay in Vy Khanh if I were to revisit HCM.
PS: do try out the food that miss vy suggested. we tried the chicken soup around the corner and we love it.

Room Tip: Do check that A/C of the room. We had some issue cooling the room the first night but didn't enc...

Perfect stay. The family are so kind and friendly and in a nice calm relaxed way. We were welcomed with an ice cold drink and shown to our room which was immaculate. The en suite was great, there was even a shower curtain! It was spotless and the room had really excellent facilities. I have stayed in a couple of hostels in HCMC and this was by far the best service, cleanest and most helpful people. They arranged our onward travel to Cambodia which ended up being on time and well organised. Without a doubt I would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a superior room, $18 a night, well worth it.
