I didn't actually stay at Sihome, but was moved across the street to Getaway Backpackers with no explanation. When I inquired, they got a bit defensive, said it was all the same rate, same owners. Beware of false advertising. The staff was slow to respond to anything - when I tried to order dinner, I was shown a table and10 min later the guy was out smoking. When I asked again, I was told, "This is Laos..." I get asian time, but really? Awful beds, nice showers, decent breakfast, but no thanks.

I actually stayed at the hostel right across the street. It was Getaway or Gateway, can't remember. Don't know why they changed me, but I think the hostels are owned by the same person/people or they just have some arrangement. Either way, good area and not bad at all for the price. Staff was friendly and funny. Oh my Buddha.

Web poked for Sihome but stayed in its sister building for the dormitories. Getaway backpackers was a good place to stay, good wifi, friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were clean and bathrooms were good

Incredibly hard mattresses! Like sleeping on a slab of concrete. Otherwise good.

Stayed in a private room at Sihome which was nice and big with an attached bathroom. It's well located in Vientiane and is a very social place which is great for meeting other travelers. Would recommend as a good option for backpackers or those traveling solo looking to meet likeminded travelers.

The bikes to hire here are great to hire for the day. WiFi is a bit temperamental. Breakfast is delicious. Staff are sweet but sometimes rather loud and in your face.

I had an amazing time, the staff were so unbelievably friendly especiall David who i now consider a friend. Chilled out and relaxing a great place to meet people and have fun, fell asleep in the tv room many times, also the food truly was exceptional and great value for money, i really cant speak highly enough of the staff had a great time being only 5 mins walk away from night market i highly reccommend ans will certainly return if i ever come back to Vientiane.

Good location, clean room, plenty of hot water and a busy friendly atmosphere. Staff helpful. Very close to eating places, the main area and night market. Simple breakfast included.

I loved my stay at Sihome. The music was amazing, the staff were friendly and helpful. I stayed in a dorm room and it was nice and clean. You get a decent breakfast thrown in too. They have created a great, warm, welcoming, friendly environment, particularly for people who may have never stayed in a hostel before. So thank you to David and the rest of the staff.

The facilities and the staff at sihome backpackers were great. Especially David who was very helpful when ever we needed any information. We hope to visit them again soon

Staff was very friendly and helpful with booking buses and activities to do. Free breakfast was great. I was pleasantly supposed the showers had good heat and water pressure. Bed was pretty stiff but after drinking or being exhausted all day it will do. I meet a lot of people by staying here which was awesome, because it was my fist stop on my solo travel.
