Nam Long Plus

Pure luxury for backpackers

More on Dong Hoi

It wouldn’t be a stretch to declare this one of the best budget hotels we’ve stayed at in Vietnam.

Travelfish says:

Backpackers will feel like they are in the lap of luxury. Clean dorms and rooms have all the well thought out little extras at a price that is a steal. On top of all that, a lovely and caring family runs this joint.

Those on a tight budget will love their clean and spacious dorm room with six beds. The air-conditioned dorm is bright, with windows adding some natural light. While there are no reading lamps, each bed has an individual power points and there’s a modest sitting area. There are two showers and two toilets to be shared between six people, which means it’s unlikely you’ll ever have to wait.

Travellers with a bit more cash to spend can look forward to a spacious room with a fridge, luggage rack, bedside table with lamp and electrical outlet, WiFi, air-con, fan, plug-in electric heater for the cold months, flatscreen TV and a kettle. The bed has a quality mattress softer than most you encounter in Southeast Asia, and it’s topped with clean linens and a comfy duvet. The bathroom sparkles and a big water heater delivers piping hot water to both the shower and the sink. It also has a shower curtain which manages to keep most of the bathroom dry.

Nam Long Plus has bicycle and motorbike rentals, they sell drinks in the lobby and the helpful English speaking family can book you cave tours and transportation. Add US$2 for breakfast. With its location right in town, you are also only a few steps to some great local and western eats. One big advantage that Nam Long Plus has over its older sister property Nam Long is the addition of a lift. Nam Long Plus is newer and flashier but both are outstanding picks for travellers.
