    Planned to stay here for 2 nights but ended up staying for 4. All the staff here are really lovely and it’s in such a good location, surprisingly you can’t here much of the bars around. I highly recommend doing to chu chi tunnel tour from here, it’s a little pricey but defo worth it as it’s basically a private tour and the guide is very knowledgeable

    Amazing location, right on the main strip- bit noisy and night but means you’re right in the middle of everything and in walking distance from all. Nice rooftop area, free beer was good. Only problem was our shower smelt disgusting, must be a plumbing issue but it was awful. Other that this really liked this hostel, would recommend.

    Great location for young people and most of the staff were lovely, especially Jason. Only con is that there is no lift and 6 floors - so bringing heavy bags up can be difficult. We stayed in a private room and had no issue with security.

    Great central location. Lots to see and do around the hostel, and the rooftop pool is a great place to relax cool off and read a book. Stayed here both times I was in HCM city, would recommend!

    Hostel was on the main walking street so easy to get to other places, but as you would expect, very loud at night. Hostel was pretty quiet during the day and quite hard to meet people, but this could be down to it being low season. Night was a lot more lively, with lots of other travellers drinking on the roof. Rooms were pretty small. On the plus side, free breakfast was nice and staff very friendly.

    Fine hostel. The bar and pool upstairs are great! Breakfast is good and they have free beer at certain times. Little disappointing my room didn’t have a window and being on such a busy road I questioned security.

    Very Good

    Great location, cool rooftop bar, and really sociable... but it was really hard to sleep both because of the noise from the street, but also because of construction at the hostel which started very early in the morning. The last day our bathroom was completely flooded and water went out into our room and all our stuff got wet. The staff did not offer us another room or to help us dry our stuff

    The noise from the street outside is VERY LOUD and lasts until about 3am. So if you’re planning on getting any sleep don’t stay here. They also give you a duvet cover with no duvet as a sheet.

    The main downstairs was great. However girls dorm dragon, bathroom was blocked and the smell was foul. The tap was falling off. The big light was not working, all this reported several times. When daylight did shine, mould was everywhere with bugs coming out of it. A/C limited so very hot at times. Reception staff great but facilities staff left the door open continuously, I would get back and the door was open ajar. (I was the only person in the room 2 nights)

    Don’t stay anywhere on pub street or even the other flipside. You will not be able to sleep! The aircon didn’t work and the beds sucked. Breakfast wasn’t included either. Don’t recommend either of the Flipside’s.
