Very kind, helpful staff. They also sell transportation tickets at very competitive prices and do an excellent job with laundry. The view from the fourth floor balcony is jaw dropping.

My owner, thank you reduce your time to comment useful at our hotel during your holiday thank you


The very best part of the hotel is the hotel staff. The front staff greeted us upon our return each day and treated us like we were family.

I am the owner of the hotel, on behalf of the entire staff felt you had your positive review of your stay at our hotel


It was so lovely to stay. Room and toilet were clean, staffs were nice and friendly. Good location. I really enjoyed staying here.


Hostel was really good. Cheap dorm with airco, nice staff. A 15 min walk to the night market and city center. You can also rent bikes at the hostel and go to the center or the swimming pool. Or take a tuktuk ofcourse. You can arrange buses to Vang Vieng and other places through the hostel for a reasonable price. Breakfast was good.


It's cheap but doesn't worth to stay here. The lack of service, responsability and safety is terrible. My friends

I am the owner, as you write your comment I see a lack of objectivity, and that day I was directly check that your room stay with you and check out on time that in only one room and I told her you are sorry and I want you to change your room into the next room for everything I had to clean the that I turn to no one else in the room, and board was close attention, as you wrote dishonesty

Staff an receptionist (esp. Receptionist) was so kind and good to talk to. Basic dorm with aircon (cheAPest i could ind in the city centre) and wifi and clean. No common area but u meet ppl easily in the the room.


Staff were rude, got asked to move rooms, beds were rubbish. No atmosphere

I think you wrote a lack of objectivity, that day was me who did your test, if you have friends who have been out of the room to go to a different place in your room, you only have one at a time, I'm sorry for you and I want to change you into the next room and everything was clean check everything, and you agree, and I want to ask you that you make sure that before you move to a place where you do not leave trash in the room thank you


Our room wasn't very clean (bugs around the windows and getting in the crack at the top of the patio door, dusty grime everywhere). Nothing special, and not comparable for other options in same price range. Really nice view though!


Would stay here again. Just wish there was a social area. Staff were friendly.


For the price you really cannot moan. You get exactly what you pay for, a basic place to sleep and dump bags. I'd avoid e washing service, they gave it back to us 24 hours later still wet because it rained and expected payment. It was so cheap I couldn't be bothered with the argument and had a bus to catch! The toilets are smelly and everything could use a clean. Location is superb.


I don't rate this guesthouse very highly. We only stayed here for 2 nights then moved to another guesthouse for the rest of our stay in Vang vieng which was much nicer for a fraction of the cost. Staff were friendly though and the place was clean.


Good beds, quiet area, great location. There's no view when you stay in the dorms. Dorms have airco and fan, and private bathroom. Free computer and internet access. Sweet owners and staff. Security is oke, but the keys have to be left in a bowl behind the desk and anyone who needs his/her key grabs it out of there, as so anyone could grab your key and enter your room. Keep your important belongings in a locker (bring your own lock).


The owner was very attentive and helpful. I get to know the places to go, map, a few computers for internet surfing. They also make arrangements for transportation. I felt very hospitable staying here. It is in the middle of all the exciting places (1-3 minutes walk to the nearest friends/family guy restaurant place next to the fat monkeys bar, along the otherside restaurant. It is away from the noisy area, just at the end of the road/corner.
