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.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my girlfriend after travelling down Vietnam. Arrived early in the morning after an over night train and although the room wasn't ready they stored our bags and even offered us breakfast which was good. Room was a standard double with a small balcony looking over the lane. The room had AC and a fan... More

The rooms here are great, they are nice and clean and not jam packed. Close to everything and staff are extremely helpful for anything a new traveller could need, will definitely stay again, from booking day trips to just helping around town

Very good value for money. Staff are very friendly and happy to help. Room was basic, but what you'd expect for what you're paying. Breakfast is included which is an added bonus. The air con was leaking and there were small ants in the bathroom and on the table in the bedroom. Despite this we'd stay here again.

The rooms are nice clean with shower and airco. The staff is super friendly and help out when we were planning the remainder of our trip. They can arrange everything within our budget. Furthermore the breakfast is great. This is the best hostel we had in ho Chi Minh.

Right from the start with the arranged pick up at the airport after long flights to the greeting of banana and tea, you knew this place was going to be good. Great language skills. Wonderful breakfast. Quiet location in a busy area. It really felt like being part of the family.

I really like the location. Tucked away in a nice little alley away from the main backpackers road. Morning breakfast is provided making it so much easier to start the day. Clean bed and bathroom only downside it the creaky bunks as any movement would be heard. So if you are a light sleeper this might be a downside. Super... More

I had my bag stolen in a market and the staff at Long Hostel were fantastic, they me feel at ease and did absolutely everything they could to help me. I was accompanied to the police station several times, once at 12am, they also stayed/woke up to help me when it first happened. Their English is very good so can... More

Excellent value for money. This place, tucked away in a little pedestrian alley close to the main party hub, and just far enough to avoid the noise, must rate very highly as one of the best hostels in Saigon. One is immediately aware of the family feel, and warm welcomes would seem the norm. Tea/coffee and fruit are waiting for... More
