We spent 6 days at the Long Hostel in late June 2012. We really liked the hostel and spent time talking with the Long family who were happy to talk about their country and answer all of our questions. The room and bathroom were clean and tidy and the air-conditioner worked well.
Mrs. Long had sent great directions for getting to the hostel from dealing with the taxi ride from the airport to finding the hostel. She even gave us instructions to have the driver phone her so that a family member could come out to meet us on the street. We were provided with a welcome drink and some lovely fresh fruit on arrival. Mrs. Long provided us with a map of the area and plotted on it all the things to see as tourists on our first visit to Saigon. She was also able to provide a folder with various tours in it at discounted prices which we made use of.
They were very helpful when we wanted to find out about places to eat and when it came to booking bus tickets to Cambodia they sorted it all out for us and picked up the tickets as well at no charge. The night before we left we found out that we apparently needed more passport photos than we had on us and they ran me around by motorbike at 9 o'clock at night to get these sorted.
The breakfast provided was simple but quite adequate.
We would happily recommend the Long Hostel to others and will definitely go back ourselves if we are back in HCMC/Saigon as we really enjoyed our experience. It was excellent value for money.
