Vy Khanh Guesthouse
Low on style, high on comfort
What we say:
Down a narrow alley in the heart of Pham Ngu Lao, nondescript Vy Khanh has become one of Pham Ngu Lao's best budget choices. Only four standards in the main building and two superiors in a separate building across the alley are available, with the only real difference being that superiors offer more space. That might not sound like much, but space is limited around here -- while you probably won't feel claustrophobic in the standards they do have small bathrooms and offer less space than what you'll find at competitors. If you can get past the tight quarters, Vy Khanh's rooms are among the most tidily kept in the area, though perhaps a little uninspired, and each come with air-con, WiFi, fridge and TV. Computers are available for free to guests wanting to surf the net in the tiny lobby, but the biggest draw of Vy Khanh is the warm hospitality consistently provided by Vy and her family. Unlike some of Saigon's notoriously unfriendly guesthouses, Vy and her family go out of their way to make guests feel at home. One downside is an absence of a common area, which does make it hard for solo travellers to meet fellow housemates. Vy Khanh has a solid reputation and is almost always full, so it's a necessity to book in advance.
