    We stayed here for 3 nights and I could not have dreamed of a better place to start our trip! The staff are all so welcoming and fun and they all go above & beyond to make your stay special. Jack made a huge effort to make our night special, making us laugh and giving us tips on good places to go for dinner and drinks. The manager Jacob was also great, he gave us so many tips and helped us plan our trip and book other activities and travel! Not enough words to say how much we recomend this place

    Probably one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in! This is ranging from the facilities, to the staff! We spent three nights here all together, the staff helped us book days trips and visa extensions, the hostel is so sociable, but yet the dorms are very quiet for the location and if you are shy the staff will get you talking to everyone. by the end of the night you will have made some close friends and will singing the night away! Big love to jack, Mitch, aggy and the rest of the team!

    Another great hostel by Flipside! Decided to try out the walking street hostel after staying in their other locations and as always the staff were consistently friendly, rooms were really nice and the location is amazing right in the thick of it!

    We were extremely surprised with the location of our hostel, having never visited Vietnam. However, if you’re looking for a quiet stay, this isn’t for you. Mitch; Flipside’s rep, was amazing and managed to convince us to take part in the Mekong Madness tour. We highly recommend this tour, it was well organised and we thoroughly enjoyed our time. If you don’t fancy riding a moped yourself, they give you an option of being passenger. It’s a really good opportunity to see the other side of Vietnam.

    Amazing location, right on the main st in HCMC. It was easy to meet people and the staff and reps are all lovely. When I was there the plumbing was broken (sorry Jacob!) but I got offered a room upgrade to compensate so it’s all good.

    I booked a girls only dorm and intiaally they put me in the wrong room, then after they moved me into the correct dorm, they checked a boy into the room. Not ideal. They then only reimbursed me for half a night's accommodation which I thought was a bit unfair. The staff do not seem particularly organised, too busy e joyibg themselves. There is a good atmosphere, especially if you are a young party person. The rooms are not great but cheap and great location, although noisy 24/7

    We had a mixed experience at Flipside. We did arrive late at night which meant security checked us in, unfortunately they messed up and put us in a mixed dorm despite booking a female only dorm. On getting to that room two out of the three spare beds did not have clean sheets. BUT when Mitchie (big shout out) found out about the mistake the next day he really helped and fixed the issue, and comped us some drinks as well. Overall it is a party hostel and definitely not the cleanest but still good

    There are many reasons why I give this a horrible review but I’m limited to a few words. Dirty couches, roaches in the room, old chips under the bed, looks like a prison room with its grey concrete walls and windowless room. The security was sleeping all night anyone could’ve came up. Most of the staff was ok, but we met a horrible staff member.
