Best Hostel In Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City
One if the nicest places we've been staying, the rooms were a lot prettier than the pictures -great start! The service was formidable and all of the staff were so nice to us from start to end we even got to go on a roof top that wasn't really meant to be used! Great breakfeast selection, happy hour and location right in the heart of district 1! Because of the price we didn't expect too much but were blown away by how accommodating and nice the staff, people and atmosphere was at Long Hostel! If you ever visit Ho Chi Minh City you should stay here!

Very nice place to stay and awesome location
Very nice place, met lots of awesome people. Staff very friend sand give you a large breakfast with eggs, banana pancakes and fruit. Only issue was the bathroom shower not draining and floods the bathroom occasionally

A perfect choice for budget travelers
It is a quiet place to stay despite the central location and it being a hostel. No noises at night. The room and bathroom were in good condition and clean. The breakfast was lovely. You can choose to have an egg dish or pancake that are freshly made for you and a juice or coffee. They can help you booking tours. We booked the Cu Chi tunnels and a full day Mekong delta trip. Both were great. We were very happy with this stay.

Best stay yet.
Superb stay. Room was the best we have had so far. Very clean, large TV, excellent WiFi. Proper wardrobe and furniture, very comfy bed. Breakfast choices have all been good, great atmosphere about the place - staff can't do enough to help.

Great first hostel experience
We only stayed one night at the Long Hostel, but would have loved to stay longer. This was our first time staying at a hostel and we are very satisfied with our stay. First of all, our bus arrived too early in Ho Chi Minh City (4.30 am), but fortunately the hostel was open and not only did they let us store our luggage, but we also got to spend the rest of the early morning sleeping on the couch and armchair in the living room, very much appreciated! We also booked a tour to Cu Chi tunnels via the hostel and are very happy with our visit. Also, the free beers they give you every day is definitely a plus! We stayed in a small private room which was clean and comfortable and great for our stay here. All in all, we are very happy with our short stay here and would recommend it to anyone looking for good (and cheap!) accomodation in Ho Chi Minh City.

Great hostel to stay at!
Great stay in the private room at long hostel. Two free beers every evening in reception makes it really sociable. Cu chi tunnels tour was really good and reasonable dropped us off at the war remnants museum for after too. Comfortable and quiet room despite noise downstairs. Great location near the walking street
Sam, gb2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
I've stayed in dozens of hostels around the world, but this one underwhelmed me. The single room I stayed in was shabby (peeling wallpaper / moldy bathroom), and the blanket I received was stained (they did give me a new one when I asked). Its location was fine - 20 to 30 minutes to a number of key sites. That said the included breakfast was great (loved the banana pancakes!) and the front desk staff were very helpful in reserving a car pickup at the airport / calling a Grab car to the airport. I can't speak to the dorm rooms, but for the single room, I assume there are better options out there for a similar price.
