Good place to stay. It is clean, comfortable and it is worth the value for it. The only issue is that there is no wifi in the rooms at the back. You will have to walk to the common room (lobby) to be connected. Anyway, it is no big problem.
The private garden bungalow was Laos style and a really interesting place to stay instead of the usual hostel/hotel room
Staff is super helpful and that is what makes this hostel such an amazing place!!! We loved our stay there!!!
Best value place we have stayed on our SE Asia trip. Beds were fine, shower worked well, wifi in lobby worked fine and great location near to bars and restaurants. Owner from NZ so spoke English and has all the info you will need for your trip to Vang Vieng. Towels provided were old and dirty, room wasn't very air tight so plenty of insects (biting ants) were always in the room during the day/night. We stayed in one of the bungalows outback where Wifi didn't reach, and Wifi was turned off at 11.
Cheap and cheerful!! Our private room was spotless. Chris was very friendly as were the rest of the staff. Nothing but good things to say about the place!!

Basic facilities but did the job. Owner was very friendly and informative. No aircon, just a fan in the room, and wifi only works in the reception. Rooms were secure and could be locked by the handle and a padlock. Would recommend if you are just staying for a night or two in Vang Vieng.
The location is good. But I dont understand why the place is so highly rated. Its just an ordinary one.
Pans a great guy and very helpful. He balances looking out for travellers as well as making sure the Cambodians he networks with are paid fairly by you (tuk tuks, rentals, food, etc). Rooms are super clean, lots of privacy, vey nice rooms and building. Perhaps the best stay in SE Asia for 3$ per person. Only 10 minute walk to centre market!
Pretty basic but relatively cheap. Lack of wifi in the room was a bit of an inconvenience and when in the common room it was patchy at best...but then I think this is more to do with the wifi quality in Laos rather than the hostel itself. Overall it did the job for a few nights
This is a good guesthouse with friendly staff. I really like coffee tables in front of the house. I just stayed one night and the room is ok.
Excellent. Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Would definately recommend this place.

The place is pretty basic, but still good for only $3 a night. They make great food though and it's only a few minutes away from everything else.
Great place overall, will go over and beyond to help and chat. It's a little bit away (not far at all though) from the main "party" area so is a great place to go back and relax. Offers free water, film room, wifi and has a couple of computers that are also free of use! No complaints from us!
I loved my stay here the staff are friendly and don't book out your room until you say your leaving so if you don't want to leave it is no problem
Super friendly staff! Great breakfast, good atmosphere.
The place is pretty basic (it IS only $3/night) but the owner is FANTASTIC! He was able to make recommendations, give directions, explain a little about the area, and help us figure out our itinerary. It was nice to talk to someone who could easily understand my questions and concerns and tell me things straight up. I would go back to Pans Place if only because he was so helpful and informative!
