Nice spot. Good rooms with AC

The people who work there are great (so is the movie room). The location is a bit dodgy and far from the city center. There's a hole in the ceiling of the upstairs bathroom which is covered in black mold so water drips through the hole and gets stuff hanging on the hooks wet - annoying as there's nowhere else to set down/hang up a towel or anything else. Other than that, the place is in good shape.

Quite a lovely place with very nice and helpful staff and good breakfast. The cleanliness could be improved though. My friend had a sticky plate or something in her locker which got stuck on her backpack. There was trash in the lockers, too and one was broken. But still a good place to stay at!

Stayed 2 nights at the 8 bed dorm and enjoyed it a lot. Basic rooms and bathrooms but very friendly staff and they'll do everything to make you feel good. Social area with tv room and breakfast was the best i had during my travels. Absolutely worth the money. Thanks!

I couldn't have been happier with my stay at Backpackers Garden. The super helpful staff, delicious and huge free breakfast, movie room and amazing people made my stay super memorable. There isn't a better place to stay during your time on Vientiane!

Best hostel in Vientiane! The staff are amazing the rooms are great, huge lockers, and the walls are beautifully decorated all around. Close to the main road but in a laid-back quiet location.

One of my favorite hostels I've ever stayed in. Between free breakfasts, a great movie room, lots of lounging space, a staff of almost only other backpackers, and walls entirely painted by guests, the overall vibe of this hostel is one that is hard to match. Probably the biggest downside is that the hostel is in Vientiane, a pretty boring city. Beds could be bigger and more showers might be nice, but I highly recommend this place regardless.

The free breakfast here is amazing! The staff are super friendly and the atmosphere is just lovely. Not much more to say really - beds comfy, bathrooms clean, wifi works.....great value for money and like a little home from home in Laos.

Perfect place if you are in for good atmosphere. Had a lovely day playing badminton at the court on the hostel (although I did loose against the staff). But then again I did get some free beers to drown my sorrows. Truly recommend the place and was more than satisfied with my two nights.
