Nguyen Khang is a great value and quality 13-bedroom guesthouse in the heart of the most bustling district in Ho Chi Minh City. I am a college student and this summer I stayed at Nguyen Khang for 6 weeks while working an internship in HCMC. Throughout my stay, I had the opportunity to personally meet each of the staff at Nguyen Khang, and found each person to be extremely helpful and caring. I had a double room with two beds that included A/C, cable tv, wifi, private bathroom w/ shower, and breakfast each morning. Every day the staff would make the beds and tidy up the room as well as do any laundry or ironing that I had set out. The hotel is set in a quiet alley between two of the area's busiest streets. Nguyen Khang is one of many small hotels and guesthouses along the streets of the "backpacker district" but after spending so much time in the area, it became clear that Nguyen Khang was a step above the alternatives. It is a quiet hotel so you are able to get an early night sleep and not worry about disruptions, but you can also have late nights out experiencing HCMC's incredible nightlife, and be assured that there will be a receptionist there to let you in when you return. The staff would offer to cook me dinner about once a week, as they realized that I was alone in the city. They went out of their way to do everything possible to help me acclimate and feel at home in a place that was on the other side of the globe for me. Not only are the staff very kind and hospitable, but they are also highly knowledgeable. They speak a handful of languages, including good English, which was a relief to me when arriving back at the hotel after a long day of using sign language and gestures to communicate with locals. The staff gives great recommendations on activities to do within the city, as well as day trips or weekend getaways to explore other parts of the beautiful country. Plopped in the middle of one of Asia’s most underdeveloped and poverty-stricken major cities which is filled with deception and mild thievery, Nguyen Khang is a relieving place to rest your head knowing that all of the staff are honest and trustworthy and are there to make your stay in HCMC as enjoyable as possible. I would not have had near to the wonderful experience that I did throughout my 6 weeks, had I not had the assistance, care, and security that this hotel and its staff provided. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a small, safe, and friendly bed and breakfast style accommodation in HCMC.
