“Experience the center of vietnamese catholic society and cooking classes with this lovely family home stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014

Sang, de owner and his lovely family will do everything to make your experience with them one to remember. You are part of the family as soon as you arrive, they give you personlized attention and all the information you require. On the back of a scooter they take you to the local market, waterfall,amusement park & a ride on a ostrich and beautiful and interesting architecture of the catholic churches, Bien Hoa is famous for. You can sense the French influence here, buy a french baquette nearby.
You will have dinner with his family and they can give you cooking classes, I learned to make the delicious vietnamese springrolls! Definately recommend visiting his family, if you want to go a bit off the beaten track, nearby saigon with the local bus.

Had the pleasure of staying at Sangs place for 4 days. Sang and his family are all amazing and really lovely people. I would recommend everyone to go there and meet Sang and his family.
If you want to see the "real Vietnam" you should go there!

Thx Sang :)

This guy is the real deal. If you want a genuine Vietnamese experience and personalized service then this is it!

Sang (the owner and operator) is the nicest man I have ever met. He participates in many charities and works out of the goodness of his heart. You could even help him cook food for people that are in the hospital: Cooking class and volunteering all in one.

Plus he bring you on the best tour ever!
We went riding on scooters all around the city, seeing waterfalls, temples, animal sanctuaries (rode an ostrich) and more! Amazing traditional food at his hostel that his sister cooked, plus the hostel has rooftop views of the city and even a pet monkey. What more can you ask for, c'mon!

If you have the opportunity to spend 2 days out of Saigon, I really recommand Sang's place. You won't probably never find Bien Hoa in the tourist books as it is commonly said there is nothing to do there. This is true, you might be disappointed if you start comparing Bien Hoa with Halong Bay. Actually, what you can find in this town and at Sang's place is dramatically different. First, Bien Hoa has a long christian history and has dozens of churches. As a result, its atmosphere is different from the rest of Vietnam. Second, Bien Hoa surroundinds include lovely sightseeing places - such as waterfalls or forest - easy to reach by motorbike. Personnally, I spent 1 nice day fishing on a lake with Sang. Third, about Sang and his family, as I stayed 3 days with them, I can just say they are lovely hosts and strive for making you feel like home. Actually, Sang's home is more a homestay than a guesthouse as you litterally live with the familly (share the food, discussions...). The place is clean, spatious and well equipped (with AC). Finally, Sang's home is a particuliar business as it is generosity-based (it means there is not rate for the rooms). This completely reflects the Sang's family mentality. So, hope you will enjoy.

My friends and I were originally enticed to stay at Lu Khach Quan for the opportunity to ride ostriches but once we arrived we were immediately charmed by Sang's hospitality, genuine nature and enthusiasm for introducing us to all that Bien Hoa has to offer. Sang and his family were exceptionally welcoming and made us feel like members of the family, which was especially nice after months of being away from home. We all made a delicious Vietnamese dinner and ate on their rooftop terrace with a view of the entire city. During the day we chose a tour where we were taken by motos to go ostrich riding, swim at a beautiful waterfall and for lunch at a pho restaurant. If this doesn't float your boat I'm sure you can talk to Sang and plan a tour that suits you. After two nights in Bien Hoa my friends and I went to Dalat for a couple days but returned to attend the wedding of Sang's best friend and it was easily my favorite day in Vietnam! I cannot stress enough how much I enjoyed staying in Bien Hoa and if you want to experience an authentic side of Vietnam that isn't overrun with tourists I highly reccomend Lu Khach Quan for an unforgettable time.

We'd heard about this place from other travelers, and decided to take the 1h bus from Saigon to Bien Hoa. When we arrived in the hostel, which is more like a homestay, since you really cook & eat together with the family, we were amazed: Spatious and clean rooms (with AC), off the tourist tracks, and the warmest welcome I'd had in Vietnam. Sang speaks perfect English, and he and his family will do everything they can to make you feel like part of their family.
The accomodation is just incredible: rooftop shower & terrace, great rooms and the food you cook together with his family was just delicious!
Sang offers personalized trips on the back of a motorbike/scooter: we visited the most beautiful temple complex (honestly the most spectacular one I have seen in Vietnam, although the lonely planet hardly mentiones it), you see the surprize on the faces of the locals since you're the only tourists there. Then we went to see pomelo village, really cosy and once again, great food! As a co-guide, Sang chooses to pick students, to give them a change to improve their English. His lovely niece took us to the local market, his sister showed us how Vietnamese foods are prepared (rooftop barbecue with the entire family!!).
So really, if you want to see real Vietnam family life and hospitality, take a couple of days away from busy Saigon, discover places where hardly any other tourists go: go to stay at Lu Khach Quan!!!

Room Tip: Value: at the time of our visit, Sang didn't work with fixed rates, he asked to decide for ourse...

A million thanks to Sang and all his brave and sweet family for those memorable 3 days.

I stayed in the dorms which were really clean, as well as the bathrooms.
The green garden rooftop made quite a good relaxation time in the afternoon. The view is quite epic also !
Its also the best place for a drink(or more)

The food was extra tasteful and every meals would be different, I would help and assist in the kitchen and eat with the family, loved it !
