Relax on the white sand beaches, try kitesurfing and go for a swim before you go back to the hostel. Because most people who check in here tend to stay at the hostel. The reason? Because it has everything! You have a big pool, free ping pong table, beer pong and flip cup competitions every day, free billiard tables and just a lively atmosphere which makes you not want to leave the hostel.

7. Flipside Hostel Saigon
This Kiwi owned hostel has been operating for over 14 years and is one of the most successful hostels in Vietnam’s biggest city, Ho Chi Minh City.
