Nguyen Khang Hotel, Ho Chi Minh City

Pham Ngu Lao Street  is Ho Chi Minh City's answer to Bangkok's Khao San Road when it comes to budget accommodations. Being the budget travelers that we are, we decided to stay at one of the cheapest guesthouses in the area — the Nguyen Khang Hotel.

The park fronting Pham Ngu Lao street where the Mekong Express bus dropped us off was just a short walk to Nguyen Khang Hotel. Nguyen Khang Hotel is not on the main street but on the back alley together with other guesthouses.

The reception was on the second floor and we were welcomed by a pretty receptionist (we forgot to ask her name). Check-in was a breeze and soon we were assigned our rooms. We were given 2 triple rooms on 3rd and 4th floor. There was no elevator so we had to ask the staff to help us with our luggage.

Our room was facing Pham Ngu Lao but what we saw were only rooftops. =)

We paid $14 each for a 1-1/2 night stay (breakfast included). We decided to pay for additional half day so we can still freshen up for our evening flight. Good thing, the guesthouse allowed us to stay in one room.
