    Great staff, good location. Roof top pool and bar is 🔥🔥. Can be a huge party but not always. You can just go to the other location for that. Easy to meet people

    The first night I was pretty disgusted as there was dried up throw up in between my bed and the wall (from the person before). I also saw 2 cockroaches one in my room and one in the main lobby. I alerted the staff and they took action immediately to remedy the situation. The atmosphere was quite good met a lot of people and the pub crawl was fun! Although I had a bad start it was a good stay and I would recommend this hostel as it seems that what I had were one off situations.

    Loved it & hated it. Special shout out to the guard who walked me to the right hostel & let me check in at 4 am. Pool at the 2ne location was dirty.which is understandable considering it's on the 8th floor & located in Saigon. Majority of staff were friendly, special shout out to the manager from Oz & 2 dudes from Canada (Mike &?) However, local staff were very rude. Both ladies during breakfast & bar tender at the 2nd location.&this is after spending 6 weeks in SE & lowering my standards.

    Party hostel for sure. Could hear the music of the rooftop patio until 3am. People would be super loud in the stairs in the middle of the night. There was no atmosphere in the common area on the first floor. Loud music in common area starts early in the morning like 7am. Breakfast was ok. Room was clean but without window. AC available but not strong. Great location in the backpacking area.

    If you value integrity stay away from these people. 30 minutes before I was scheduled to check -in I was informed verbally that my reservation had been canelled 2 day before. I am yet to receive an official notice or have my deposit refunded. The verbal reason given to me was that my length of stay (8 days) exceeded their "preferred" 4-5 day length of stay. The reservation was approved more than 30 days before the scheduled stay.

    Would not recommend staying at Flipside, many of the reviews are out of date here so please read below! Firstly when we stayed there (March) renovations were being carried out so there was lots of dirt in the stairwells and some noise in the day. Secondly there is little no atmosphere - the rooftop was very quiet and closed early. Thirdly the room we stayed in was really dirty and looked like it had not been cleaned in a month - dust and dusty floors, mould on the walls and filthy bathrooms.

    A friend and I didn’t have a good experience at Flipside Hostel. I arrived to red stains on my bed sheets that looked like it had recently happened - I was the only person staying in a six bed dorm so it couldn’t have been another guest. Also, while waiting in reception, 2 rats ran through and the staff just shrugged. Lastly, and most frustratingly, the staff booked our bus to the wrong destination, telling us everything would be fine. It was not fine and we had to pay extra for another bus.

    Don’t come here if you want any sleep. The hostel is next door to a club that blasts music until 4am and even with ear plugs you will hear it. If you want a party hostel and want to go out until 4am it’s the place for you. Anyone else who wants sleep, it’s not!

    I booked a private room at this hostel as I liked the look of it and didn’t want to stay on walking street. When I arrived the staff member told me that the only private rooms are in their other property. I was sent to the other Flipside in the middle of walking street. What is the point of reviews, pictures, location etc if you are just going to be sent to a different hostel on arrival? I Was not offered anything close to an apology at either hostel
