Would not recommend. Could not enjoy the view as the windows were so dirty. The bathrooms are very dated which is fine when travelling in South East Asia but not for the prices they charge. We looked at a few of the rooms and they were all dirty.They also processed our payment twice luckily we found out before it was fully processed and our bank was able to stop it. I would only stay here if everything else in Vang Vieng in booked out. There are much nicer, cheaper placers in the same street.

Booked the guesthouse in advance and was scheduled to arrive at 10:00am but had to wait till 12:30. The river side view costs an extra $5usd which wasn't mentioned on the website. The "American continental breakfast" which is included was a selection of ripe bananas and instant coffee that you prepare yourself.

Lovely guesthouse in great central location in vang vieng and if u ask for a river view the view from ur window is stunning! Was so nice to get a comfy bed with duvets and pillows but the one down side is if ur there for longer than 2 nights nothing is cleaned and ur bathroom is rather disgusting by then

My room was not really overlooking the mountainous scenery as promises, but it was nice, and indeed the guest house is in a very good location.

Good hostel, clean, good location with a great view of the river. Staff wasn't very friendly or helpful. Not unfriendly, just not super outgoing.

I have travelled all around the world and am not fussy about many things but the sheets in these beds were absolutely filthy. The first room we had had a terrible smell in between severage and damp and dirty sheets and when we asked to be moved which to be fair they moved us no problem the new room also had dirty sheets. I slept in my tracksuit and still got bedbug bites and had to throw the tracksuit out. Met really nice other travllers here tho Breakfast wasn't bad.

Very good view from the balcony's at the back of the property, staff were good but at times a tad distracted/unfriendly, other than that it was one of the better hostels in Vang Vieng.

we really liked popular view and so will you if you are lucky enough to get a room with a view like ours.. good breakfast which is free, aircon, comfy beds and a view good enough not to leave the hotel. close to the tubing, motorbikes next door

When we arrived late evening we were not greeted but instead they demanded we pay. We were not given the room we had booked. They was no television. There was definitely not a group atmosphere, getting breakfast was difficult as you had to wait until mid morning for them to be in the lobby and then you had to ask for it. When we tried to check out they tried to charge us more than we were supposed to pay and the power was turned off every day.

Spectacular view from our room, great location, big enough room and aircon was great. Having just stayed at less-expensive guesthouses that cleaned your room daily it was a bit disappointing that our room got so dirty. Especially problematic that there are SO many bugs in Vang Vieng.

Woke up with HUNDREDS of bugs/flies in the room- had been in SE asia for a while and so we were used to bugs being around but there was literally loads. We decided to move to another hostel/hotel.

The location is good... With good river view.... The room has big beds... Nice.. Cleanliness is average.. But still fine... It's quiet at night which is good..

This hotel was very clean and the bed was comfy. The breakfast was pretty good and the young guy who works there was very friendly. It was in a great location and though it was on the main street was very quiet as we were in a back room overlooking the river. We would recommend this place.

PERFECT Location - very close to where you hire tubes, good restaurants and travel agents. We had amazing views from our room and the rooms are up there with the best i have stayed in. Internet is fast but only available downstairs!

Wonderful view of the river from our balcony! The beds were comfy, awesome air conditioning, big bathrooms. Breakfast was substantial and delicious, although it would have been nice to have brewed coffee instead of instant, since this is the land of coffee. Daily maid service would be appreciated, even if it meant just emptying trash and changing towels. Expect some "thumpa-thump" until the wee hours from the bars on the island.
