Great staff!!! We bought Mekong Delta Tour with them-we had very nice time-very good price. They rcomended as nice place to eat and give a lot of important tips about Saigon. Rooms are ok. I saw a cockoroach in the room.


Pleasant stay overall. Helped book city tour and transport to Cambodia. Staff very friendly, and met other nice guests on the Sunday when you get 2 free beers downstairs - a great touch.


very friendly staff, perfect location on the main street.


The Long family is just amazing. Definately stay here! They were always super friendly and helpful. Easy to book our taxi to the airport with them,or our tour to the mekong delta. We stayed there twice, in two different rooms, one had a locker both were super clean and with aircon.There´s always sb at the reception. It´s in a side street,but only 3mins walk away from "the place to be".Breakfast is great!We had a late flight and they even offered us a shower in their private bathroom.Heaps of thx


Great hostel! So good i stayed here in twice in the space of two weeks. The family that runs it are very friendly and helpful and there is couple of cute kids running around. Rooms are clean and have good facilities.


We really enjoyed are staying in Long Hostel. The staff was very helpful, they explained where to go for alone sightseeing, they suggested good local restaurants. This hostel is in the main Center for backpackers. Two minutes by walk to find the very busy bar street, Bui Vien, also close to the busstation and there are many tourist agency. We got also very good breakfast. The Rolle was clean and quiet. It was no problem to stay one day longer. We can only recommend this place.


Top notch breakfast, helpful staff


Got moved hostel


Great location right by the backpacker strip. The included breakfast was nice. We had some trouble with the shower one day where there was no water...(there was a plumber there trying to fix the issue but it wasn't sorted before we left). Pretty standard rooms but the staff are lovely.


Very good hostel. Staff are lovely! Very easy to find, very clean, massive beds! Good price, lockers, left luggage, would definitely recommend long hostel and stay here again! :)


Cam welcomed us personally with refreshments upon arrival. Breakfast served in the 2 mornings we stayed there were delicious. They bought tickets to the Water Puppet Show for us and we had excellent seats. They also arranged our transportation to the airport. We are a group of 8 and we were allowed to eat take out food in their dining area as well as wait for a few hours to go to the airport though we were already checked out.


We arrived very early in the morning after a night train from the north. We were told by the staff that if we went away for 2 hours the room would be ready. 2 and a half hours later we returned very tired and smelly awaiting our shower but were told the room wouldn't be ready for another 2 hours... Again we waited this time in the lobby and it wasn't until we asked the staff another 2.5 hours later they remembered us & we got to go to our room. The hotel itself is average. Nothing outstanding.


1. Staff was great. 2. Bed frames were squeaking a lot. Stayed in a 4 mixed dorm. 3. Room was clean.


Not the most social hostel in the world, but good location in the backpacker district and organised a good tour to cu chi tunnels. Definitely stayed in worse hostels.


Good value for basic hostel but rooms are a bit cramped and beds are creeky. Nice staff and good breakfast.


This place was okay, but starting to look a little tired. Can't fault the free beers on a Sunday night. Thank you.
