But I guess I wish I had spent a little more. The location is good in that it's one mile from downtown, so it's walkable. There are also some cool street markets and a beautiful park nearby. The location is less good in that it's even closer to a grimy, clubby area, and the hostel itself is literally down a...

Long Hostel was the ideal base for exploring Saigon. Free breakfast and free beers a definite bonus! Good vibe here so easy to meet new people - many of which we went on day trips with. The rooms were immaculately cleaned every day by the lovely cleaner, who even dared not disturb us post-hangover!

Strong AC, clean facilities, friendly staff great location and price. Free breakfast and free beer everyday. Stayed for 7 nights. If you need a hostel you can't go wrong here.

The hostel is situated in a little street near the "backpacker-street". It was a bit hard to find at first (eventually because we arrived at night). It was our first hostel in Vietnam and we loved it! The staff is friendly and always willing to help, the double room was big and had everything you need and the breakfast was...

Hostel is very well located in backpackers' area. Please look for some narrow street with entrance and blue skyld on which a few hostels are mentioned, among them Long Hostel. Breakfasts are simple but it was enough for us. Really nice surprise with every day from 19:00 to 21:00 2 beer for free for person. Prices in hostel are also...

There were quite a few hostels to choose from but when I read that you get two free beers I think it was worth flying for 20 hours to stay there :-) The hostel is in an alley, so yes, it might take a few minutes to locate. You need to take your shoes off always before entering. We had...

Ok place to stay, definately does not live up to the hype and the 9+ rating on trip advisor. It wasn't a bad stay but after reading the reviews and seeing the rating we expected a lot more. Again no hard feelings just not good enough. Also place has zero atmosphere, I'm not a party all night person but the...

Excellent hostel near a small local market. I had some trouble finding the alley where it is located because of the market. Located two blocks away from main backpackers street. I had a private room which was superclean and everything looked new. No sheets but a blanket. The safe did not work. No window in the room but I think...

I spent a couple of nights at ho chi min at the long hostel. I usually don't go to hostels so I was a little bit cautious. However,the Long Hostel was a great experience. If you want a fancy hotel with all the amenities and attention forget it. But if you want a clean,functional place to sleep that fits in...

TERRIFIC!! It was my first day/night of my South East Asia trip, and the Long Hostel did not disappoint! I would recommend to everyone, especially first time travelers! The staff were incredibly kind, and helpful! They rooms were spacious, very clean, and the beds were surprisingly comfortable for a hostel! The bathrooms were awesome, super clean and tidy, and the...
