  1. 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.

  2. 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 !

  3. 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!!!

  5. I spend 4 amazing days at Sangs place. Him and His family are amazing hosts and i had some of my best time in Vietnam at his place.
    Was great to get of the beaten track and to see parts of Vietnam without tourists!

  6. The Lu Khach Quan guesthouse can be highly recommended. It may not be located in the heart of a touristic centre, as Bien Hoa is very much an industrial and commercial city, but you will get the vibe of the real Vietnam. I spent there a few memorable days, the charming owner Sang and his family will go out of their ways to guarantee you an interesting homestay. In the vicinity of the city he offers several one and half day trips in the rural and semi rural areas. On the rooftop you have a nice view and breeze and there I enioyed some of the best Vietnamese food I have ever eaten. What I found fascinating was the the fact that I could count nine Catholic churches from there and there are dozens more. This part of the city must be the most Chistian area in Vietnam, I guess, and it was interesting to talk with Sang about the Vietnamese breed of Catholicism. It is worthwile to visit a Catholic mass, they offer them as early as 5 am! A guided tour to the market with an eager English student, followed by a Vietnamese cooking lesson with the owner’s sister is also an rewarding experience. So if you have time to spend a few days away from the normal tourists’ path, it might add value to your stay in Vietnam.

  7. My stay with Sang and his wonderful family was one of the best experiences I’ve been able to have on my travels around Asia. His hotel facilities were clean, comfortable, and wonderfully located for the “truly Vietnamese” experience of getting out of the big city and staying with a family. Sang and his family organized super fun activities, such as trips around Bien Hoa, cooking with the family, and even a rooftop BBQ! I really could not have asked for a better time, and honestly met a lifelong friend in Sang. Thank you and your family so much for having me and making me feel at home thousands of miles away from my own! Hope to visit again soon!!

  9. Sang, thank you for a wonderful time during my visit to your bed and breakfast! I really enjoyed my time in Bien Hoa thanks to your outstanding hospitality. Your service exceeded my every expectation.

    I enjoyed very much the tour you gave me of the city and surrounding area. It was so nice to see the nature park and enjoy the waterfall and then to see the authentic Vietnamese market near your hotel. I especially enjoyed meeting your family, and I felt like I was a part of your family. Your mother treated me like one of her own sons. The dinner on the rooftop my first night there was excellent! That was really some of the best food I have ever eaten and I will always have a very fond memory of that night. Staying in your hotel and having the tour and getting to know your family was all I could ever have asked for!

    Take care, brother!
