    The Flipside was the best hostel that we stayed in in Ho Chi Minh. The beds are comfortable and clean and the hostel is pretty modern in general. The best thing was the breakfast buffet with pancakes, egg and so much fruit! It is definitely not a party hostel but the best thing you can get for your money! :) it’s also a lot better than hangout!

    Such a great hostel for solo travellers!!! Made me feel welcome on the first day. Great staff, they are all so so so awesome. Also recommend doing the Mekong madness tour- bit pricey but such a great experience! Flipside is amazing !

    A great place, easily walkable to the main sights. Staff were brilliant, could not do enough to help you plan your adventure. Nice to be close to everything but far enough out that I could rest too. Great breakfast in the sister hostel a 5 minute walk away.

    Really liked it here! Staff was great. Very helpful. Only problems were that the wifi was not very good, and the pool is green and gives off a bit of a smell. The breakfast also ends at 10 am which isn’t bad but just good to know. Over all though the bathrooms and rooms are clean and they do have things are bar crawls etc. Good spot!

    Nice hostel at the backpacker's street with positive vibes and friendly people. The pool at the rooftop, however, needs several rounds of cleaning before anyone should take a dip into it. The rooms were comfy and the attached bathroom in the 6-bed room we stayed in was pretty clean. The hostel offers travel advice and tips on where to visit in the city -- the suggestions came handy when we had to exchange foreign currency from the city. The free beer upon check-in was a pleasant surprise.

    The hostel is in a great spot and the breakfast and staff were lovely. Only problem was that the pool was green and the bathroom had no ventilation so it was constantly wet with mosquitos around.

    Overall, I had a negative experience at this hostel, primarily because there was no running water for two days - 10+ hours and 6+ hours. I understand that my stay was during mid-March before HCM was locked down, but running water 24/7 should be expected for this accommodation. A few other things - the wifi was broken on all floors (floors 1-5) except for the lobby and the rooftop. I was not able to get my security deposit back because the night staff didn't have access to it. Will not return!
