Nam Long

Though Nam Long Hotel is older than sister property Nam Long Plus, it is just as spic and span, friendly and well run.

Photo of Nam Long Frugal backpackers will be just as happy here, while saving a couple of dollars. In fact, perhaps Nam Long Plus will be too flashpacker for some who would prefer the livelier atmosphere here.

We’d give rooms on the first floor a skip, as they don’t have windows and are somewhat dim. Rooms on the other floors are great – expect to get some exercise though as there’s no lift. The decor and fixtures are dated but everything is functional, tidy and cheerful. You get a minifridge, TV, chairs, wardrobe, air-con and WiFi.

The dorm is a winner. Located on the top floor (more exercise!), the spacious high-ceiling room has sturdy metal bunks with eight beds. We appreciate that they haven’t crammed in more bunks when they could have, so there’s plenty of space to spread out. Lockers are available, and the room has windows to let in sunlight, or you can bask in it on the large attached balcony with a view to the river and city rooftops. How’s that for a little luxury for the cheap traveller?

The location doesn’t get more convenient than this in Dong Hoi. Nam Long is located at the river, close to the cathedral ruins, the bridge and popular eateries. Add US$2 for breakfast.
