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!


Booked this place based on its 84% rating. Lacked any atmosphere, rooms downstairs stank of sewage and ammonia, dungeon like rooms and general lack of fun. Expected way more. Wouldn't recommend.


I was soo happy with mad monkey in siem reap :) the beds in the 12 bed dorm were amazingly big and comfy and the bathrooms were really nice. The pool was great to chill by on hot days(and there were lots) and the roof top bar was stunning! Their beef lok lak was the best i had in Cambodia. The hostel is really social and the staff were really friendly and helpful. I recommend this place to everyone! I also love that they have one in Phnom pehn and now Kampot. Similar vibes but all unique.


I just stayed for one night, and the room is okay , just the water is leaking out of my window , so it's very annoying, and the price is high, not cheap, u can find cheap Guesthouse in luangprapang if u can find someone to share the room, that's more cheap


Really nice hostel. The big dorms are enormous very spacious (you don't really notice being in there with 10 or 16 people)! Really nice outside area, breakfast is awesome! Bathrooms, dorms and communal area are cleaned every day. Use your own sleeping bag, although blankets are provided, they do not wash them everytime someone used them and left the hostel.


Great hostel. Very clean, great staff and an awesome movie room that everyone hangs out in. Short walk from the market and organised trips to the waterfall. Those of you that can draw keep adding to the movie room wall. We started something that'll look awesome if backpackers keep it up! But yeah, awesome hostel.


The staff is really friendly but my dorm was disgusting. The smell in here was awfull and during my stay they changed my matress and one could not even call the new one a matress. I believe this place also gave me bed bugs. Besides the bathroom and room of our dorm could not be locked. Although they pay lots of money (i heard 500 dollar per month for 8 connections) for the WiFi, Skype won't work. Breakfast is included and very good!


Cool hostel near the night market and with affordable prices, they also have the cutest puppy ever and the staff will gladly help with any doubts you have


We has a great stay here, the staff were very helpful. The dorm was fully booked when we got there so they upgraded us for free to a private room. The room was very clean and spacious. The hostel was in an easy distance to the markets and temples. I would definitely stay here again.


Had a good stay at Khammany Inn because of the great social atmosphere here. Staff are good too. Like most of Laos accomodation is fairly basic and theres only a few showers, on the bottom floor, for the large dorms. Wifi is pretty bad too. Overall though would recommend for meeting people.


The "superior" 6 bed dorm was cramped with fairly poor standard of bunk beds. Two male staff members walked in, without knocking, to "count the beds"- it was booked by all females at the time.... Reports from other guests of the sheets not being changed between guests. No explanation of facilities, air con only switched on a certain times and with no controller, bitten to death by mozzies (1st time ever in 10 months in SE Asia). Cheerful staff though and good atmosphere
