    This is by far the best hostel I’ve stayed at in Vietnam! Amazing location and staff. They’re always happy to help with travel recommendations and tours. My tour I booked to the Mekong delta and Cu Chi tunnels made my stay in the south. My favourite staffer, Kaitlyn, took us on superb pub crawls and was the best thing about my stay. Thanks Kaitlyn! Rebecca and Jake were absolute rockstars as well. I’ll be part of the flip-side family forever 😎 rock on

    The staff at Flipside were so great! They'll help you with anything. Free breakfast was nice. But here's the thing, do not stay here if you want to sleep, like at all. This place is on a crazy loud party street at night, it is loud even in the room, on-top of that the hostel bar also plays really loud music. There is basically music in your room untill morning, and then at 6am they play music in the lobby which you can also hear lol. The other location is better, the staff will help you switch.

    We had a great stay. Our first room had an issue but they kindly moved us to a different room. People at the reception were always so helpful with anything that we asked. Will definitely recommend this hostel and will not think twice on going back when I visit Ho Chi Minh again in the future.

    Meh is my rating. Wasn’t horrible. Wasn’t great. The staff was ok to deal with. The bar staff was awesome to deal with though. Lots of fun up there. Pool is a Noce touch on a hot day. Beds were falling apart a bit so kinda scary to climb in and out of. But comfortable. En-suite bathroom is nice as well. Hot and cold water 👍🏼 But there was mould on the ceiling and the door and no door handle so anyone could watch you shower. Right in the middle of the party so music outside can be loud
