Pans place was great, very friendly and very accommodating! They have a super cheap menu and loving indoor / outdoor seating. Chris told us all about the different places to go and little tips. Definitely recommend this place to everyone


Had a very good time here, cheap, the atmosphere was good, the staff were interesting and lovely and our room was fairly clean. Would definitely stay again :)


The room was what we expected for the price we paid and was clean when we arrived. The owner was very helpful and gave us lots of information on the city. It wasn't the most social place we have stayed at but its in a good location and If you plan on doing the tubing its a good place to crash.


Stayed here for four nights. Good location near all bars/restaurants, yet quiet. Free computers with internet access to use. Good value food and drinks available. Large communal area, TV room with films and TV shows available. Staff all friendly and helpful, can arrange trips/tours for you at reasonable price.


The private room was a very nice big room with a bathroom and comfortable bed for a super low price. There are so many guesthouses in town that it keeps the prices down. You get a lot for a low price at Pans. The food is also good and the people who run the place are real helpful and have plenty of information. I'd recommend booking here. It's real popular and fills up quickly. While I was there, people who didn't book in advance ended up having to stay somewhere else since Pans was full


Excellent value for money accommodation with a wonderful, friendly and helpful owner Chris who makes everyone feel so welcome.

The owner very helpful with local knowledge, and booking buses around Laos. The rooms simple, but everything worked, what more do you want. The breakfast was good and a decent price. The location is about 5-10min walk to the main 'strip' where the majority of restaurants and bars are. So easy to get to places from, but you can get a good sleep if needed.

Great guest house with awesome staff. Chris is so friendly and helpful. Our twin room was out the back with comfy beds. Wifi was temperamental and only worked in reception/lounge/dining area however there were three desktop computers you could use. The food servered here is good with large portions.


Good place and very well located, Chris is very helpful and friendly owner that is always straight and honest without the need to show himself off. It could have a better wifi in the place but it does the trick if you want just check a few messages.

Hi Joao Thank you for the review, it is appreciated. However you stated that the wiifi could be better. We are in a third world country and hundreds of kilometres from the nearest signifcant town. We spend US$50 per month for the connection we provide for free. The only way to improve the signel is to spend a lot more, which is not an option for a guest house that charges as little as we do.


Nice staff that understand the backpakers and take care of us. Perfect place!! thanks
