You have to be barefeet when you use the smelly older toilets. Noisy beds and lockers, and cramped dorms. Breakfast is included so it's good value, but you don't want to be here for more than a few nights.


The place is ok. Good location and nice atmosphere. Free breakfast.


Staff rude and unhelpful. Were told off for being on phone in reception at 10pm and have to wake someone up to get in after about 11 and they make you feel like it's a problem


Staff are extremely unhelpful and rude. Aircon is turned off at ten am on the dot

Nice place to stay for what you pay considering breakfast is included. Close to all the food stalls and a supermarket. Bit quiet when I was there but could be good in high season.


The staff were rude, and made you feel unwelcome. The lockout was supposed to be 2am but the door was shut at 10:30pm with no way to get in other than waking the receptionist. Getting ordered to go to bed at midnight also didn't impress me. The hostel rooms weren't locked and the a/c was only set to the ridiculously high temperature that the staff determined. Beds were okay, showers and toilets were clean enough. Location was good for night markets and pubs. Good tour guides to the waterfalls


Located West of the city center, but Luang Prabang is a small city so you can easily go around by walking. Common areas and atmosphere were rather good, although the staff was not helpful or nice at all. Market price (keeping in mind Laos, and especially Luang Prabang, is expensive).


Good hostel for Luang Prabang. Dorms were ok and clean. Nice atmosphere. Breakfast is eggs and toast and coffee, not bad. After 10 you can't make noise so if you are having a good time with other travellers you have to go somewhere else. But they were very nice when we arrived at 12:30 am and checked us in after a very long trip.


By 9pm there were asking us to leave the lobby, and if you got back to the hostel after 11 they had already locked the gate so that you had to wake someone up to let you in. The staff were unfriendly and unhelpful


Never experienced such rude and unfriendly staff in all my months of travelling. Never once smiled or looked you in the eye . Answers to questions often 'I don't know'. Felt like a child with strict curfews for bed, the pool table closing at 9, being told to leave if we want to chat, air conditioning turned off early when all still asleep. Seriously they need to sort it out, so many people there agreed it was a joke. Lockers so noisey so you wake up and beds painfully hard.


Pros: Location, Breakfast (you can choose between 3 options), Price Cons: Staff not very friendly and helpfull, very small room (I stayed in 8 bed dorm), uncomfofortable beds, during night the main gate was locked (we got up early to see the monks, but couldn't get out! I wonder whats happens in case of a fire??!)


Good hostel and good location. Mixed staff... Night porter is quite unfriendly but understandable! Thy say curfew is 2am but they lock up at 12 ! Movie room is very good but some staff just turn it down without asking. 2 great staff members, sorry I don't know your name !!
