Guest Reviews

  • After returning to Saigon I thought I’d give the walking street Flipside a go after staying at the O.G previously during my trip. Great beds, very clean all round and super friendly staff. The rooftop bar has a jacuzzi pool!! Such an amazing feature to this hostel. Can’t wait to return when I’m back in Saigon as the staff 100% made my trip. Big shout outs to every member of staff here that made my stay extra special. Will definitely return when I’m back in Vietnam

  • 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 recommend 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!

  • 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.
