Vy Khanh Guesthouse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 23, 2013

This is one of the nicest guesthouse I've ever stayed.
Location: Backpack area Pham Ngu Lau. Major tourist attractions like Ben Thanh Market, Central Post Office, Reunification Palace etc are all within walking distance, I quite like walking.

Room: Small but mighty and its really really clean. Toiletries supply is provided too.

Guesthouse: Overall is good. Except the staircase part and first room at the first floor(which I stayed) is pretty noisy when sun rises. But Ms Vy does mentioned about it to me before I stay and offered me for quieter room upstairs.

Owner: EXCELLENT! She gave me free laundry,because it was just 1 jeans. She is also very helpful, attentive and very nice. :)

MUST STAY! AFFORDABLE TOO!

Vy Khanh Guesthouse is not smacked right in the city, but its location is ideal with lots of really good stuffs around.

For starters, there's the Trung Nguyen Coffee house that my wife and I frequented on the two days we were there. Then, there's Pho Quynh. And during a tour we joined on our first night, we were brought to a nearby road-side stall for Bun Bo Hue which was fantastic. For our two days trip there, we mainly just walked from the guesthouse to most of the restaurants and attractions in HCMC that we visited (Notre Dame Cathedral, City Hall, Ngon and etc). It may not be your preference as the weather can get really hot, but we took it slow by stopping in coffee houses along the way. So yes, we love the location.

The room is spartan but adequate. It is clean, and big enough for my wife and I; we were traveling with just one medium-sized backpack and a camera bag which I think is pretty light. However, we did notice other travelers there with huge backpacks.
Although the sound-proofing is non-existent, fellow travelers staying there were respectful of each other's rest time. We did not experience loud disturbance throughout our stay there.

Ms. Vy was very helpful and friendly during our stay there. In fact, we found a few gem due to her recommendations.

Finally, just a note for fellow travelers, especially senior travelers - if it's not convenient for you to climb too much stairs, it might be better for you to inform the owner before your arrival. This is because the guesthouse have only one room downstairs and the rest are located on the upper floors which require climbing the stairs. This wasn't a problem for us but we have noticed some reviews mentioning this problem and thought that it might be a helpful note for senior travelers who plan to stay here.

As a conclusion, if you're looking to stay at a guesthouse with friendly services, ideal location and a clean place Vy Khanh Guesthouse is highly recommended.

As I am now about to book this wonderful guesthouse for next year, it is about time I wrote my review from last March (2013). We arrived from Da Nang and were met by a taxi sent by Vy. We had a room with air conditioning, minibar and free WiFi - it was spotlessly clean, which is the most important aspect for us. Vy and her family ensure the place is safe, as there is always someone in their lobby/lounge. The family are extremely helpful and friendly and helped us out with trips to the Cu Chi caves and the sights of Saigon. Next time, the Mekong Delta - and I know I can rely on them to organise it for us. Looking forward to returning.

Great guesthouse near the centre of town where were able to walk to all the sights of Saigon (Ben Thanh markets, Bitrexco Finanacial Tower etc)

Superior rooms had AC and were clean and well kept. We stayed in two different rooms while here (as we went on a trip while here) and for one night the other room we stayed in was slightly smaller but still absolutely fantastic value for money.
We got a fantastic map of things to do and the day trips (Cu Chi and 2 day Mekong River) we booked thought the guesthouse were all fantastic! So many eating options nearby from Authentic Vietnamese to pizza hut etc. The owners are very helpful and friendly and their help was much appreciated!

Would stay here again for sure!

While the guesthouse in and of itself is not particularly special, the service from Vy and her family, their attention to detail, the day trips they can arrange on your behalf and help in navigating the city along with their recommendations for places to eat/visit really improved our stay in Saigon. Excellent value for money even if the rooms can be a bit small

The friendliest, most helpful and genuine family you'll ever meet in Saigon. I've never seen people go so far out of their way to ensure your stay and visit is the most comfortable. Now i know why they were rated one of the best hostels in asia. They will help you with any needs you might have while staying in HCMC. They have maps, travel packages and I've even seen them walk people to a restaurant and help order food for the tourist. The hotel is centrally located in district 1. The hotel is comfortable, the rooms are cozy, super clean and kept clean daily. The beds are very comfortable and always have fresh linens and towels. Security is good, there's always someone monitoring the lobby activity and rooms are very safe. Ive stayed at 3 different guest houses in HCMC and looked at several others. This guest house is by far the best I've seen in HCMC. I continued to live in HCMC and Vy still helps me anytime I have any questions or problems. You'll never get that type help from other places. I would highly recommend this place to stay while traveling in HCMC, but make sure to book you room early and for the full duration you want to stay. The rooms book up quickly because it has such a great reputation.

The service is excellent, the staff, composed of a family, attends your doubts at all times (do not hesitate to book tours with them). The location is very good and the rooms are cheap and clean. The common areas are minimal, but for that price, the hostel is fine.
