Good hostel, nice female dorm, friendly staff and excellent breakfast but there were some small negatives as well: big light in dorm was broken, bathroom had no lock, airco didn't have a remote control so didn't work properly, no comfortable common room (tv room was closed when I was there), a bit out of town and the lockers smelled really bad so everything I put in there, smelled bad. Over all it still felt good.


The music at breakfast is too loud sometimes!!!! But breakfast is so good. For free. Wifi a little intermittent but generally good!! Had a good time at this hostel!


I slept in a female dorm and the attached bathroom was neither ever really clean nor dry (other backpackers are to blame too but the hostel could have put a broom in there or change the soaked mats). The shared bathrooms were a lot nicer. My reading light didn't work, instead there were wires hanging out of the wall right next to my pillow and there were spiders and spider webs and mold in the corners around the window..

Good locations and common areas and breakfast. Movie room is nice. Good place to stay. Only complaint would be toilets, often out of toilet paper and of the 2 bathrooms for 14 people one had no light in it and was completely dark.


smells so bad... but almost good


Decent hostel a bit of a walk away from the night market. Morning breakfast is good.


This place is a circus. Absolutely avoid this place unless you have a sadistic pain streak in you, it's not worth the money by anyone's standards.


In the first night our shoes were stolen and nobody from the hostel didn't care about. Regarding the rooms scheme, we thought that they are very disorganized, because there are several people occupying other people's bed. We also should say that they have a menu for the breakfast although the real list is shorter...


Great place to chill and meet people. 5 min walk to centre and on main street. Staff are really good. Most having been/are travelling themselves. Breakfast is good. Egg galore! (or toast and jam), wifi, movie room. large lockers in dorm. Tours available. Just had a good vibe. Toilet/shower area smelt a little funky. Only downside I guess. But its pretty easily brushed over for the rest. Would actively look at staying again if in Luang Prabang.


A bit of a walk from the center, but that's only 5 minutes. Pretty average hostel overall. Enjoyed my time here.


The hostel is located just a ten minute walk from the night market and the city center. It has a decent free breakfast and a rooftop with a nice view over the city and to Phou Si Mountain - especially at sunset. The staff is friendly and helpful. Only cleaning could be improved and our room was rather dark and smelled at times a little musty.


Nice hostel! The common area is nice, the breakfast is very good, the rooftopbar is very nice. It's easy to meet new people, or to go to the waterfalls with a group, which is arranged by the hostel every day. The rooms are good, the beds are ok, showers are nice and warm, but sometimes a bit dirty. And the tv room is good to hang out and watch a movie.


The hostel smells like a sewer most of the time and the staff is completely useless. Although cleaning staff seem to be there often, everything from the floor to the walls is filthy. Hard beds and cold basement rooms with no wifi. Good luck.


Overall this hostel was great. I had a private room which was clean and comfortable. It was a little noisy at night but I was so tired I fell asleep with no problem. Loved Luang Prabang and this hostel was walking distance to the center of town.


Bathroom toilet spouted water everywhere. Disgusting! I stayed for one night on the rock-beds and had enough. If you're cool with getting no sleep and having disgusting facilities then go for it. It is in a good location though.

Great atmosphere, little far from the centre. Helpful & friendly staff. No lock on door though, but there are lockers. Not the cleanest or most modern facilities. But good place


the atmosphere is what made this place so good for me, the staff are super friendly and helpfull, location is brilliant, the building is old so it's a little bit bruised and battered but it's kept really clean I saw the lady's start their cleaning about 7am, the free breakfast is the best so far, they offer French toast and omelettes


Excellent place to stay! Great location, free breakfast options and common areas (dining room and outside area with hammocks). Very easy to meet people and showers were the best we've had in South East Asia! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Lockers are not big enough to fit your whole bag but will fit valuables. Highly recommended.


Just down the street from the night market. Nice place in Luang Prabang. Great staff.


Amazing vibe and super helpful staff! However, if you stay downstairs, prepare for a hot, stinky night. The downstairs dorm room has no windows and all the exhaust fans are broken, so the room gets incredibly rank. Also, there seems to have been a sewage backup, which made the downstairs sink like rotten, festering feces. I would stay here again for the scene, but this place comes with a huge asterisk.
