Hey Sonal, Great list. I always end up revisiting Vietnam and this is quite handy. I also run a small homestay in Hoi An with a local family feel, equal distance from the old town and the beach. We even have a swimming pool :) The price with balcony and pool view is between INR 1200 - 1500 which is unbeatable with the facilities we provide. Our website is http://anhfamilyhomestay.com and we're also on Airbnb, Booking and other apps with 5 stars on Airbnb and 9.3 rating on Booking. Would be great to get a mention on your list :)
