    Had a great time, definitely loud at night considering its next to Walking st, so if you’re not into a party hostel they’ve got a quieter one about 2 minutes round the corner. Definitely recommend the Mekong Madness Tour, two days of cruising through the jungle of the Mekong Delta. It’s definitely a unique experience and well worth it. Don’t think we saw another tourist for the whole two days except for at a beautiful home stay on the river. Drinking rice wine on that night was a must do

    What an absolute fantastic hostel to stay at. Great location. Staff were super friendly. I would highly recommend the Mekong madness tour, with tour guide Jake. Highlight of my trip. Absolute legend. Please come stay at this hostel.

    Came to this hostel with the intention of staying just one night on my way to the Mekong Delta. The beds were comfortable, rooms were clean and the location can’t be beat. I ended up booking my Mekong Delta tour with Jacob at Flipside and it was the best thing I’ve done in Vietnam. He’s a great guide and took us to places that were absolutely jaw dropping. Can not recommend Flipside or the Mekong Madness tour enough.

    Very nice hostel, good location in Ho Chi Minh City. Be careful booking trips as I think sometimes prices can be high. Very helpful staff though!

    Everything went well and I have nothing to complain about! Everyone was so nice and welcoming, even the night time security guard draw a map and made sure that we step on the right bus on our way to Phu Quoc. Got some really good tips from the staff too! Also my friends phone was stolen on the street and the staff were super helpful with that too. Special thanks to Hai, he was the whole day with us in the police station and translating. Would definitely recommend!

    Ok hostel. Rooms are dark, first bed had a broken rail and the next they moved me to didn't have a light. No attempt was made to fix either of these. Mekong madness trip was an amazing experience I would highly reccomend. Only if you are a confident driver as multiple people fell off during the trip. The seats outside the hostel are a great way to meet people. Very mixed feelings about this hostel.

    This hostel is located on the busy Walking St, so you won't get any rest here. The staff doesn't put any events together, so not sure how you're supposed to meet anyone or go anywhere. The room was decent, it looks cleaner and newer on the website. The stay was ok, wasn't bad, wasn't awesome. I was supposed to stay for a week, I ended up checking out the next morning out of boredom.

    Loudest hostel ever!! Rooftop bar is always empty, but music is maximum power all the time. The windows are good, but Bui Vien street is really really loud. Nice room with jacuzzi, but is empty and dirty, not work. 4th floor, no lift...
