This pleasant little guesthouse with superb views across the Son River and the Phong Nha karst mountains, happens to be owned by the man who discovered Son Doong - the world’s largest cave. That’s a pretty big claim to fame.

This place has a pretty impressive backstory. Ho Khanh is the man who discovered the world’s largest cave - Son Doong. He’s an unassuming chap who wears his extraordinary accomplishment with great modesty. You’ll see him wondering around in between his duties as a tour guide in the cave he discovered.

His guesthouse enjoys some of the best views along the river.

There are more tiles in the grounds than would seem to be necessary and the 9 rooms have a few design quirks. All up though, Ho Khanh’s place is friendly, good value for money - and a bargain if you get to meet Ho Khanh.

Try and get one of the rooms right on the river. If you miss out, there’s plenty of access to river views in the grounds.

Ho Khanh’s Homestay is around 1.5 kms from the backpacker heart of Phong Nha closer to Phong Nha cave and the entrance to the National Park.

Rusty Compass recommendations are always independent. We list the places we think you might want to know about. That’s it. No money changed hands for this listing. We stayed at Ho Khanh’s Homestay and paid our way in full.
