In a street where there are lots of other hostels. Clean rooms, they make the bed everyday and clean the ensuite bathroom. Breakfast is included. The people from reception are super friendly. They helped us to book our trips and recommended us where to go next. We even got a takeaway breakfast because we had to leave so early in the morning! Too bad that not more people come done to the common room, but it's quite small to sit there with a few people.
Very helpful and cheerful people, never gets tired of questions etc. The breakfast was great too! Only had a little trouble finding the alley even with the map but overall, great place :) Thank you Cam and everyone!
Just be careful when checking out that they charge you the correct amount. We were in a rush for our bus so just paid what they wanted but they tried to overcharge us even though we had the email stating what was owed. They said it was to do with the exchange rate but that shouldn't matter. The room was also full of damp and did not smell good!!!
A lovely hostel with super friendly and helpful staff.
Great hostel, only problem is that there are so many mosquitoes in the rooms we got bit so much. Also there is was no power socket by our beds. And no curtains or anything for privacy. Otherwise great hostel amazing breakfast and great staff.
I've been here for almost 2 weeks. This place has consistantly been a pleasure to stay in. My only complaint is that the place could have a little more security for people with large suitcases (for me this is a temporary accommodation before settling in for good). Such cases are placed in a wardrobe in a back room with easy access for anyone. Apart from this one small thing everything has been truly great. For people with smaller luggage there's ample space in the lockers (in the 4 room dorm)

Staying at Long Hostel was an excellent experience. Although it was difficult to find when I arrived to HCMC, it was easily navigable once I knew where it was, and close to the main tourist districts (1, 3, 5). The hostel was clean, social but not crazy, and the staff was friendly, helpful and awesome. They even made a takeaway breakfast for me in the morning since I had to leave so early, which was a small but much appreciated gesture. Will definitely stay here next time I'm in HCMC!
Nice rooms, very clean and tidy, great location, friendly staff
Helpful staff and spare bathroom that is available whenever you need.
Great breakfast, great staff really accommodating, Duc in particular! Nice clean rooms and very well located, definitely recommend!
Really friendly staff who will help you out with anything you need, gave us great advice on tours and helped us book a 5 day bike tour even though it was nothing to do with them, also advised us against tours they thought were dodgy. The hostel is really clean and the breakfast is good too. Couldn't have stayed at a better place!
A really good place to stay in Saigon. The staff were delightful and helpful goofballs, the location was convenient (although a tad confusing to find at first), and the decor was adorably kitschy. My only suggestion would be that the coffee be made a touch bit stronger in the morning. But overall really good!
We stayed here twice during our trip in Vietnam! The staff is really friendly and we loved the banana pancakes! The location is good as well!
Basic room that was plenty good enough for a short stay. We didn't book any tours or buses with hotel as it is much cheaper at tour agencies on the main road near by. We so didn't find the breakfast very good on the days we had it.
Long hostel is a good quality hostel with the basic things in a very good condition: clean, comfortable bed, AC working. The guys in the reception are very helpful and speak good english. They help to book taxi to airport or what you need without extra charge. The breakfast is very good too...specilly the banana pancake that was amazing! I will come back at he end of our trip in Vietnam.
Hostel was everything you need in Ho Chi Minh, although the staff, While friendly were also deceitful. They seemed hell bent on us staying extra nights, to the point that we asked for them to book us a bus to Nha trang, but were told all buses were full. Only to go next door (where they book all tours) to find the buses weren't booked out.
I LOVED my stay at Long Hostel. The breakfast was delicious, great location (close to Pham Ngu Lao road with a bunch of bars and street food), and most of all the staff. The front desk receptionist was a young man that was more than helpful and so kind and great to talk to. The service definitely made my stay the best it could be. The only issue was the shower, I was on the 5th floor and the water came out in only a trickle.
Amazing hostel, totally fell in love with the super helpful staff who guided us around the city, navigated buses for us and even our bus to Cambodia. Free breakfast was great too, banana pancakes and Vietnamese coffee were to die for! Can't really fault the place, a little gem in Saigon!
Great place to stay! In the backpackers area and really close to the bus 13 (to Cu Chi, go with it to the last stop and take the bus 79, and say Ben Dinh or Ben Duoc, and driver will tell you where to drop off. So easy and really cheap). The breakfast is awesome and you can use the computers if you need them. Totally recommended.
