People that worked there didn't make me and my friend feel welcome there at all. There was no locks on the doors and bed bugs in the bed booked two nights stayed one. Aircon was so bad didn't work at all
My stay wasn't success at all. First night I got bitten by bedbugs and during the night some one stole my shoes. These things happen, but I was more upset about the way staff handled them. They had no interest in either of cases. Place wasn't clean at all, shower wasn't cleaned for two days, room was filthy and same with breakfast area. Here is lot to do make it nice hostel.
Cons - Rooms do not lock. Our bathroom also had a drainage problem, pretty gross of you have to step in 1.5 inches of dirty water. They shut off the AC during the day. Ours stopped working twice and we had to ask to fix it. Our tuktuk driver to the waterfall arranged by the hostel was kinda shady, wouldn't recommend using the hostel, just find your own. Pros - meet a lot of travelers, close to night market, decent breakfast included
For roughly $5 USD/night, can't complain! Friendly staff, nice breakfast included, and main town area about a 5 minute walk away.
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.
Without a doubt best place to stay in Luang Prabang. Stayed here for almost 4 weeks! Cheap, clean, movie room, free breakfast (lovely Belgian girl made the best French toast) and great atmosphere! Dave the manager and Bart are a great team and are always there to help you out. The hostel just felt a little bit like home!
This place is suppose to be a great place to stay. Not far from town centre, value for money, relax atmosphere, helpful and friendly staff, also excellent breakfast. However, other than meeting travelers, you might meet bedbugs (if you are the lucky one).
I have stayed in dozens of hostels worldwide and this was by far the worst. Dark dorm room barely lit by fluorescent bulbs, filthy bathrooms with broken lights, sheets had not been cleaned, moldy pillow. And BEDBUGS. The staff messed up my booking and were very unconcerned when I asked for a clean sheet- they gave me one, but it was also dirty. I checked out first thing in the morning and switched to a guesthouse. There are dozens of them in town and it is money very well spent.
Room was spacious, air conditioned, had wifi, large clean bathroom and TV. A couple of times I saw lots of room keys, all marked with the room number they corresponded to, left on a table in the corridor, or even worse, on the reception desk unattended with the front door wide open. Laos is very safe so it didn't worry me hugely but still a bit of a security risk. Well located for a 5 min walk to town. Cleaners knocked for about 5 mins both mornings we were there which was a disturbance.
Not as good as the reviews say, pretty far out of the centre. But met awesome people there that was the reason to stay nothing else. Oh and yeah,,, BEDBUGS!!
Stayed in 3 bed private initially - very comfortable and was then moved to a dorm. It was fine to be honest. Bed were not the most comfortable but ye aircon worked well and we had lockers so can't complain. Maybe the cleaners should just empty the bathroom bins more regularly. Otherwise good atmosphere and good breakfast included.
Booked for one night, was quite a basic hostel as far as others I'd stayed in in Laos, but the staff were very friendly and helpful and the free breakfast is a bonus! Slightly further from town than other hostels, but only by a few minutes walk.
Staff was very friendly and helpful, good social atmosphere. Beds in dorm a bit hard. I switched to private room which was brilliant. Movie room was awesome, we could watch the world championship :-) good breakfast included.
The staff are beyond useless. The Polish guy is new there which is fine however whenever you ask him a question he says he doesn't know and continues reading. Without trying to help in anyway. It's dirty. They overbook beds. The downstairs dorms smell disgusting. It's quite a ways from town considering the size of the town. I would not stay here again.
Nice and spacious dorm room despite it being for 16 people! Big lockers under the beds (need own padlock). Ac very good at night, broken for 2 nights I was there but as soon as the message was passed to the boss, it was fixed within an hour! Good value with breakfast included. Fairly hard beds but typical for Asia. Really lovely lady boss and the guy from Poland who has just started there is super lovely and friendly. Wish it was a bit closer to the centre (30min walk to Wat Xieng Thong)
This was a decent place. The staff were super nice and helpful. After getting to Luang Prabang the location seemed pretty bad. There are lots of very nice looking guesthouse closer to town in more scenic and charming areas. The city is so beautiful it makes sense to take advantage of those. I also found the place overpriced for a private room. The atmosphere was a pretty young crowd.

Nice place to stay, not too far from night market but far enough that it's not too loud. Includes free breakfast of just eggs, but a nice touch. Staff were really friendly and helpful, we're genuinely honest with helping you making decisions about trips and excursions, even if it meant not booking things through them.
highly recommended to all backpackers as it has everything you need... staff are great, special mention to david. He made our trip to Laos memorable... thank you and hopefully to meet u again ... good luck to khammany inn and thien... u guys deserve a star..
Loved the atmosphere. Loved the people running the place. Loved free breakfasts. Loved the movie room. Loved the patio where people hung out. Loved loved loved everything about it!
