I stayed in a 6 dorm room with ensuite bathroom. Clean and comfortable enough bed with individual locker. Free simple breakfast, nice staff and not too far from the city center (10 to 15 min walk). Only really downside of the hotel is the wifi connection not so stable but it seems to be often the case in Laos. I would stay there again.
I had a fabulous time at Khammany Inn. I did not want to leave. This place had one of the best atmospheres of any hostel I have been in. Great staff too!!!!
I didn't actually end up staying here (my traveling partner hadn't booked and couldn't get a room) however, the staff was amazingly nice. They were completely booked up, but offered to put a mattress out for my friend if she couldn't find a place. When we found a different hostel with beds, they were very understanding. I can't really speak to the rooms or bathrooms, but the staff was amazing!
We enjoyed our stay here and would return would also recommend to others
We stayed here for 5 nights and found the main receptionist really helpful and friendly. Its more of a young backpacker place, lots of socialising and drinking, and large dorm rooms. The wifi is very good, but the hot water was a little hit and miss. You can choose one item of food and drink for breakfast. A little out of town, but only 10min walk to start of the night market area. They offer lots of tours and onward bus travel as well.
Great hostel! I throroughly enjoyed my stay here, the staff are great and helpful, and it's within a 10minute walk from the night market and centre of town. Nice, big dorm and clean toilet and bathroom.
Really lovely staff, great free breakfast and a great atmosphere to meet other travellers - really made our stay in Luang Prabang! The private double rooms are spacious and cleaned daily. It was a short, but nice walk to the night market and bars. Would definitely recommend this place.
This place is a short walk outside the town centre and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The shared bathroom and private bathroom in my dorm were both filthy though so don't think I'd stay here again.
Such a warm, friendly atmosphere. Really felt like a community, met so many interesting travellers.

Great place to stay with lots of friendly staff and guests. If you can go for the 6 or 8 bed dorm, the bigger ones are nice but it's a lot of people and often people come back very late from bowling. The place runs great day trips to the waterfalls and are always eager to help. I felt very much at home and ended p spending 8 days there in this great city When in Luang Prabang make sure to check out big brother mouse too!
I chose to stay here after I read the reviews of how great the staff were & it had an available single w/ensuite . Unfortunately I when I arrived i had a difficult time maintaining the staffs attention long enough for them to check me in to my room. This inattention remained consistent thru check-out which was equally difficult when they were unable to tell me the amount that I owed for my room. It was loud at night perhaps fun if your looking to drink & socialize but not the best for sleep.

I really didn't like this place. It is a party hostel, and it is impossible to get to know someone there if you're not partying. Probably alright for the party-backpackers between 18-22. Too few toilets here, always a line. The wifi was down while I was here, and seemed to have been for a while. And, my mixed dorm for six turned out to be me (girl) and rest guys. Also, if the room didn't smell like mould it smelled like pee. Not worth any money, is my opinion.
Average all around really, a little bit outside of the main area. Seemed to be work going on whilst we were there. Wifi was down for the duration which was inconvient to say the least. Not a massive amount of social space.
A fire breakout destroyed a few houses nearby and the hostel lost wi-fi (otherwise fine), the owner was very kind to give me back the deposit and let me to look for other hostels instead. The location is good as it's close to the major wats in the western part of the city and not far from the Mekong river and you can observe the alms giving ceremony right in front of the hostel every morning.
Good hostel, staff very friendly, breakfast was good. A little out of the centre but not too far. We were unfortunate to stay while there was WiFi problems due to a fire a few doors down but other than that, all good!
We stayed in a superior double room with an ensuite. The room and bathroom were large. It was great having the bed made everyday but they did not replace towels which was something we needed after five nights! The room got a bit of a musty Semele as the bathroom didn't have a window but it was bearable. The staff are great - extremely friendly. The breakfast is good for a hostel. It's about a 10 minute walk into the heart of the city but it's straight down one road so very easy.
Awesome staff here!! Place is the cleanest ive come across in SE Asia! 5 mins walk to the night market and staff will organise all trips, /travel arrangements for you at a great price! I would recommend this hostel to anyone!
Fun hostel to meet people and a great location near the Main Street and night market. The dorm rooms are ok, easy way to meet people, but the beds are rock hard and they don't change the sheets, they only tidy the bed for new guests. Bthroom needs to be renovated or cleaned more often. Too big of a hostel to only have one bathroom area in the basement (3 showers. 2 toilets) other than my pickiness, great place to stay and best place to meet people and make friends!
It is a cool place to stay with awesome free breakfast and nice stuff who, from time to time organise cool parties for their guests. The 2 downsides are: my dorm had no door, so anyone could enter any time day or night and it was on the second floor...and the bathrooms are on the basement. I had food poisoning (not the hostels fault) and that was inconvenient.
Not amazing, but not totally awful. The man at the front desk was a little bit snippy if you got into a disagreement with him but otherwise fine. Decent social vibe. Beds were okay, although I did notice that they don't change the sheets which is kind of gross? Great location. Just a 5 min walk away from the night market, not very noisy at all.
