We can highly recommend the Long Hostel. The staff made every effort to get our bus tickets for a couple of destinations which was quite difficult because of Tet. We also got great recommendations for vegetarian restaurants. The location of the hostel is very central and close to the bus stop. The rooms are very clean and neatly furnished. The... More

First of all, Duc at the front desk is awesome. I'm still convinced he never sleeps. The room was great, really clean, there were a few holes in the sheets, but honestly, if you're backpacking around SE Asia, that type of stuff really shouldn't bother you. We had our own bathroom with hot water in the shower and the cleaning... More

That lovely place has giving me a wonderful time in Southern Vietnam. The owner is just wonderful, generous and lovely!!! The place central, clean and warm. In addition, you get two free beers and breakfast for free - and thus meet a lot of other backpackers in the hostel! Simply amazing. Thank you very much!!

Had a great stay at this hostel, everything about it was great. 4 bed dorm was very clean, comfortable beds, beds made every day (first place we've had this after six weeks in Asia). The guy on the desk, not sure of his name is just lovely and so helpful can book all trips and buses etc through him. Breakfast... More

Amazing hostel great staff clean and super friendly. One staff member spent half a day helping me plan a trip to Mekong delta organized everything from food to eat to must see towns. They also have happy hour from 7-9 with 2 free beers. If ever in Saigon this is the place to stay.

Long Hostel was an excellent place to stay. Everyone working there was very friendly and quite helpful, always giving us advice on where to visit and what to see. As well, the common area fosters a really sweet community atmosphere (it helps that there are two free beer included every evening between 19:00 and 21:00!), where we met lots of... More

Positives: Strong Free Wi Fi, great free breakfast and coffee, large book exchange selection, relatively large dormitory beds, and strong air con. There weren't many negatives, possibly location but it's the backpacker area of Ho Chi Minh so for some ppl this is a plus and for others a negative. Somewhat of a party vibe, but overall great value and... More

The place was so cozy, people were so friendly, we didn't even feel we were in an unknown country. I prefer calling them a family....a small family owns the place. Duc is the person , a very sweet person who was point of contact for anything and everything. We never heard a NO from him for any facility asked... He... More

We stayed here for three nights over Christmas. It's tucked away in an alley, so despite being near a hectic road (that you do have to cross at some point!), it's quiet. The room was clean and homely, a nice shade of purple I seem to remember... Fantastic breakfast included - choice of pancakes, omelette or bread & jam. You... More

Free beer in the evening, breakfast in the morning... Very friendly staff but the manager was flirty with my partner. They give you a map of the area on arrival which is really jelpful. The rooms are clean and they eash your towels and make your bed every day
