I have stayed in quite a few budget hotels in HCMC. Long Hostel is the best. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms are spotless (a rarity anywhere in HCMC - especially in the budget end). Breakfast every morning was delicious and always served with a smile. I was made to feel like one of the family during my stay. I would definitely recommend and wouldn't stay anywhere else in HCMC. One hint - book well in advance - this place is going to be permanently booked out it's so good! Thank you Mrs Long, Mr Lee & Ngoc - I miss you all.
