“Clean, Very Good Location for Backpackers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Vy Khanh guesthouse is exactly as good as described. Room a bit small but it is the old Saigon, everything is small. It is not the cheapest place in town but you get a nice comfy big bed, good shower, a silent aircon.
Vy is very concern of their guest,she will provide a map with list of places to interest, where to eat , book tour & etc.
Yet if u book airport taxi with Vy, she will guide and make sure you r on the taxi ... !
Highly recommend GH ... great location !

Vy's guesthouse is exactly as described as booked through hostelbookers. It is in a prime location, cozy, clean and very friendly! Vy is very thorough in orienting her guests to the city, with a map and list of places to see/eat/etc. Laundry was done quickly and efficiently, returned within the day and smelling wonderfully clean! The "wet shower" was a first for us, but not a problem to get used to. The room was made up daily, which was fantastic. Vy was very helpful in helping us to book a bus (Mekong Express) from Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh, and also from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville. I would definitely recommend this hotel for others to stay!

The hostess is a real lovely lady and the rooms are just perfect. Yes, everything is a bit small but it is the old Saigon, everything is small. It is not the cheapest place in town but you get a nice comfy big bed, good shower, a silent airco and a harty welcome with as much info as you want. Location is perfect, right in the centre of the tourist area but no noise at all inside the guesthouse. Book in advance, this place is a gem, but not hidden at all.

We booked 3 nights here because of the positive reviews and the good cost and location of the accommodation. We were not disappointed. Well worth staying here if you like clean, friendly and helpful.

The email contact before we arrived was excellent and included information to assist with our planning of our time in Ho Chin Minh. On arrival, we were given a drink and a map, with colour coded highlighting, which was extremely useful. We tried some of the recommended restaurants and again were not disappointed. We were given assistance with booking tours to the Cu Chi tunnels and with our onward journey to the Mekong Delta.

I have no hesitation in recommending this as a place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter as they don't have a window onto the main street.

This is real value for your money. If you are looking for a great place to spend your nights while you go around Ho Chi Minh during the day, don't hesitate to pick Vy Khann with its confortable rooms and owners who treat you like family. Wifi is very good. Ms. Vy and her family are very helpful. You can even change your money with them and they will give you the best rate. They take care of you like you are real family. Location is superb as it is in the middle of District 2, where you can even walk to see all the tourists spots in HCMC. We will definitely come back!

I arrived after 1am following a late flight but was welcomed with open arms and even had my bag carried up to the top floor. The room was spotlessly clean and definitely not what I had expected from a hostel – flatscreen TV with satellite channels, towels, hairdryer, soap, shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste. The bed was very comfy – too comfy in fact, as I struggled to get up in the mornings! Water pressure was good, even on the 4th floor and the bathroom was well-sealed, so there were no leaks. Air-conditioning was quiet but efficient and there was also a fridge with the cheapest bottles of water that I found in Saigon.

VY and her family were fabulous hosts. It took me over 20 minutes to leave the hostel on my first morning, as they were so helpful with city tips! They gave me a map with different colours for the recommended sights, restaurants and shops etc. The pho shop around the corner is definitely recommended. My regret was not trying the homemade soup which Ms Vy offered to me but I was just too hot from stepping in from outside. I booked my Chu Chi tour (USD 6) and taxi to the airport (USD 8) through the hostel and did not find them to be marked up.

The location was great – down an alley and slap bang in the middle of the backpacker district but despite this, it was very quiet and safe at night. I walked everywhere but it would have been very easy to find a taxi or motorbike. The local people in Saigon were extremely friendly and I had a lady insist on escorting me right to the hostel door when I arrived. I would definitely stay here again.

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 :)
