Hanoi is a bustling city with a beautiful blend of old and new throughout everyday life. The narrow streets of the Old Quarter are filled with food stands and street vendors to satisfy every notion you’ve ever had about the “real Vietnam”.
The quality, flavour and price of the food is up there with the best in Vietnam and the people are friendly and welcoming to travellers. Hanoi has all the culture, cuisine, nightlife and atmosphere that you would expect from a centuries-old capital city.
Flipside Hostel is a modern, new and innovative accommodation choice set in the heart of the Old Quarter. This place is awesome on so many levels. Everything is a step above what you would expect from a typical backpackers hostel. Where else do you find spacious and inviting double beds in a dorm? Or how about an enormous bathtub on the private balcony of your double room? At Flipside Hostel, THAT’S where!
Flipside also offer a range of tours and services such as their new motorbike journey into the far north of the country or their group dinners to the local snake village. The staff are friendly and welcoming and offer plenty of information such as museum opening hours, restaurant suggestions and where to find the best nightlife.
As if all of this wasn’t enough to convince you to stay here, Flipside is also giving back to the local communities in northern Vietnam by practicing responsible tourism! In the near future, a percentage of all room costs will be donated to a village in the Dong Van region to pay for books and school supplies for the local children. Comfort, atmosphere and good ethics… we like what you’re doing Flipside!
If you’re willing to spend a few extra dollars for a good night sleep but still want the atmosphere of a hostel and the opportunity to meet other travellers, then Flipside is perfect for you.
Enthusiastic but Useless Traveler.
