Phong Nha Accommodation Guide

Oxalis Home

Oxalis Adventure Tours operates one-of-a-kind tours that are incomparable to anything else in the world. We strive to provide a unique experience for those seeking to explore remote jungle, wild river caves, and quench their thirst for adventure whilst in Vietnam. 

Phong Nha is a magical place to spend a few days… or week or months! You’d be surprised at how many people who are “just passing through” decide to stay longer upon the realization that they need much more time here to soak up the beauty of the people, landscape, food, culture, etc.

That being said, if you’re looking for somewhere to stay, we’ve got some great recommendations for you:

  • If you want to experience something local while also supporting the surrounding community, local homestays such as Ho Khanh’s Homestay, Phong Nha River House, Phong Nha Mountain House, and Jungle Boss Homestay are recommended
  • If you are looking for a cheap option with a young, international atmosphere, look no further than Easy Tiger Hostel (advance booking recommended).
  • If you want something more high-end with a refined atmosphere and beautiful views then Oxalis Home, Chay Lap Farmstay, Lake House, and Phong Nha Farmstay continue to impress intrepid travellers.

Saigon Phong Nha Hotel
