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.

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.


Nothing spectacular, good value and friendly staff.


Were not given the room we had booked, and when we queried this we received hostility. The staff clearly enjoy themselves and are good friends but this can make guests feel like an imposition at times. That being said, the breakfast staff were lovely and the food delicious. Beds hard, we slept in a windowless basement. Ended up moving into town to a sparkling clean twin room with an ensuite for the same price. I hate leaving bad reviews but I can't recommend this place.

Clean and tidy, good lockers, close to night markets and restaurants, bike hire available, really good breakfast (included) and the nicest staff. They also can organise buses to vang vieng, ventiene etc. and day trips to the waterfall. Thanks for having me!


The French Toast is great, very yummy! But it smelled so bad for sewers in the hostels, that you couldn't enjoy it. The first room smelled moist and for mildew. The second room was way better, i moved in a few days later. It would be nice if the staff would have some informations about the possible next destinations like Huay Xai or Luang Namtha or Vang Vieng. If there is hostels and so on. Not every traveller is so experienced.


Best hostel ever! Great staff, very friendly and helpful. They have two common areas and they prepare the best breakfast of Luang Prabang. We really had a good time in Khammany.


Steve was so awesome! Thanks for being so fun and welcoming :) x


Awesome breakfast! Great staff! The only slight criticism is that the music played in the communal area is so loud it's sometimes difficult making conversation with people where English isn't their first language. And a couple of broken showers. Fix those and I'll send everyone there I know!!


Over aller, it's a good place except for cleanliness. We saw a huge cockroach in the bathroom for the first day but de didn't saw anything else in 6 days here.

My favourite SEA hostel yet! The roof terrace and breakfasts are so good. So many travellers here to meet too and it's near the night market buffet :) Haven't got enough good things to say about this place and it was my first proper hot shower on this trip. Would Deffo recommend and would stay again!
