Default How level/even should a floor be for hardwood install?

Hello,

We are considering installing 5/8 bamboo flooring on the second story of our house. I believe it's 2.5 to 3 inch width (can't remeber for sure).

This is an older house so the floor sags a bit. Can I still use this type of flooring?

Flat is more important than level.
