Lovely little hostel, free breakfast every morning, eggs and bread but very nice. The room was clean and the shower was hot. There was a TV and games room and the place was social. The staff were nice. Overall a nice place to stay, about 10-15 minute walk from the main town and night market which was nice. Luang Prabang in general doesn't offer much, I would say 4 nights is more than enough, we stayed 7 and got very bored. Waterfalls are a must see !!!
Good coffee/breakfast and not a bad location, everything else is pretty average.. A lot of maintenance issues with the downstairs toilets like lights not working (so be prepared to shower in the dark). Also no soap to wash your hands, so bring you own and a towel.
The hostel had no atmosphere and lying on the bed was like lying on a plank of wood. The cleanliness was good however.
Room is basic but nice, definitely worth the money. Close to the town centre, staff are nice and it has facilities for watching TV and a roof top which is cool :)
We were in a large dorm on the top floor and the bathroom was two floors down, which was kind of annoying. The three showers weren't great but the one with the toilet in was ok. Breakfast was included and was decent. Beds were hard and very noisy! Asked the guy at reception both nights for a bulb in my bed side light but he was pretty useless, however all the staff were pretty nice. Decent location, walking distance from everything in the town. Very cheap so we were happy with what we got!
Wouldn't say excellent but not bad.. Just above average hostel
The rooms were alright and the free definitely is a bonus. The only thing is that there's really not much of in this hostel, the social area is, well, not really nice. But apart from that you can get everything you need here!
Really good location and attentive staff.

Nice guesthouse less than 10 minutes from the night market(could be closer). Large dorm room but good value for money. The night staff is friendly, but the guy working day shift looks a little sad. Overall, its a nice place, most of the other guests seemed really interesting and due to the rooftop and movie room there were plenty of places to socialise
Very dirty place, the staff not so nice. The only thing good about the place is the cinema room...

Room was damp, cats running around and no atmosphere at all around the hostel
great WiFi in the room and good location. uncomfortable beds though
Just an average hostel. Beds were awful. Movie room was only good thing about the hostel but when do you get time to watch a movie ??
The owner was rude to a member of staff in front of us which made us feel uncomfortable. There was a 'wannabe hippie' vibe to the place. There was an issue with checking in as the owner hadn't checked the room of it was clean and ready and after twenty minutes of waiting for him to do so , we then entered the room and there was a dodgy light, a pubic hair on the bed and hair in the sink. The tap on the sink was broken and the shower dribbled out and wasn't very hot. This hostel wasn't for us.
When I arrived my bed was taken so I had to stay in another dorm. They gave me a discount for it. However, the bed was broken, the smell downstairs is really bad, the bathrooms are not very clean and the wifi is poor. In the evening there was loud music both at the reception and my dorm, so if you want to get a good sleep this place is not recommended. The breakfast was good though
I booked a 6 bed en-suite room with air conditioning however the aircon did not work properly and the toilet was blocked so could not be used and gave off a horrible smell into the room. The main guy running the hostel was very nice, but a couple of the others were very unhelpful for instance when we asked them to fix the toilet/aircon. The photographs of the hostel looked a lot nicer than the actual hostel.
No keys for the room doors meant anyone could come in. No hooks in the bathroom to hang clothes and towels. Breakfast included was nice and free tea was appreciated. Staff played loud music in reception in the morning which was not to my taste.
Rudest signs I have ever seen in hostel saying things like if you leave the window open and aircon on you should have a lobotomy? There are nicer ways to get your point across. Also our booking was for a small dorm but they put us in a huge dorm and wouldn't discount the price. Bathrooms only in the basement and it's quite far from the main area. 15 min walk minimum. Staff were rude. Checked out after 1 night.
Very nice hotel, air con worked really well. We had a double room which was lovely. The location wasn't ideal - it was a bit of a walk to everything, but that didn't bother us too much as it was quiet and the walk was nice
