Very good location and very friendly and helpful staff! They help you with everything and always call someone if they cannot help you themselves. The Common Area is also very nice and the atmosphere is great. We would go there again!
Hotel is old ...a historic one, I believe, and needs some refurbishing..hallway carpets for instance. TV reception also not great...picture a little fuzzy. Room, however, was nice size and had black-out curtains for good sleeping. Also very quiet. Local restaurant downstairs has excellent food (filet was delicious) and great service, which was same at front desk service.
staffs are unhelpful. bathroom and toilet are dirty. I'll never use this hostel.
Location is good. Staff very helpful, they booked my flight to Hanoi for me. Cheap and cheerful and ideal for few nights.
The staff at the Funky Monkey are brilliant! Very helpful when I had problems, and good company when all was well! In addition, it's a sociable place, so you can expect to meet some lovely people to have dinner and beers with. Location is great - close to all the places you'd want to eat and drink anyway (regardless of your budget!) and close to the river for a nice evening stroll. If you're looking for a bit of fun in the otherwise sleepy town on Vientiane, I'd recommend staying here!
I would expect more for this price. The place has not been renovated for a while and it's visible. Breakfast was poor and the shared bathroom spoiled the rest - just imagine running from the third floor downsters during the night, when you need the toilet.. Still, not the worst one, especially if you consider not a long stay.

Security minor issue, you could move the bed to get to the storage facilities. Other than that, great place to stay.
