This was our first stop in Saigon! What kind service, fantastic location, super inexpensive, great breakfast and good enough beds. It is just off the main drag, so its not noisy. The view sucks (another building) but please tell me you arent going to Saigon for a room view :) There is a blind school just down the street where... More

My brother and I wondered here after a quick search in the area after getting off a bus from a Me Kong Delta tour and we are so thankful we did! They had a room available, but because we had to wait they served us bananas and tea! And it wasn't even a long wait- maybe 15 minutes. The bed... More

Reading the reviews made Long Hostel an easy choice when choosing accommodation in Ho Chi Minh City. As soon as we walked through the door we were greeted by massive smiles and friendly "hellos!!!". The rooms were really good for a hostel and the staff made our stay even better by reading through the map with us and recommending were... More

Hotel is located in an alley off the main tourist area so it's quiet at night and convenient during the day. I stayed here for nearly three months, great value and nice people. Also had really good wifi.

Hidden in an alleyway in Saigon, this guesthouse provides a good resting place for exploring the city. The rooms are nice, but a bit basic. Had everything we need though, although the safe didn't work. The staff is very kind and helpful and also helped us book our trip to Mui Ne. Fine place to stay in when in Saigon.

I had a private room with a double bed in July 2014 For the price, I would never complain. You get the essentials for a very pleasant stay: a clean room with conditioned air, a comfortable bed, a private restroom with a hot water shower, a warm welcome and efficient service. For those who value location, it's in the backpacker... More

I stayed here 2 nights in a dorm and 3 nights in a private room. Rooms were light and a good size. Rooms were cleaned every day and breakfast was good. The family was great and always helpful. Great location in the backpackers area. Would stay here again for sure.

Long hostel take all the hassle out of checking in when you arrive from your bus, plane etc. The staff provided us with food even though breakfast hours were over, and held onto our bags so we could have a look around before the room was ready to check in to. The room itself was just okay. Nicely decorated, but... More

After a week (seven nights) at the Long Hostel, I knew quite well the staff and the family who owns the place; and that's what makes this hostel so unique. The feeling of being welcome, but truly welcome. Right when you arrive, everybody is helpful, carrying luggages, showing the rooms, helping with the surroundings and giving any kind of tips.... More

Great hostel, the owner is very helpful and friendly. Help to find useful tour with value for money. Give a lot information about the city. I can put my bag here for free when I was going to Kambodja and got my room upgrade with balcon. The room is very clean and the breakfast was good. Very recommended.
