    I stayed at Hostel Lao for 4 nights and it was one of the best hostels I've seen. It's a short walk to the main street and not much further to Plaza Independencia. The room was spacious with big lockers and the bed was very comfortable. The whole hostel was always super clean. The yard was nice to relax in and meet other travellers. And the staff... these guys were so cool! Always willing to help and chat, and they put on asado and curry nights for us! I could not recommended them highly enough!
