Perfect location, amazingly friendly staff and nice and clean - had a lovely feel to it.
The little man in charge was very friendly and made our stay very comfortable, he is the most fun part of staying there. I the other hand, our room, #1, had no glass on the windows, so we could hear all the constant partying of the neighbors during the 2 nights we stayed there and we didn't sleep at all. Don't stay here unless you can cope with that kind of noise, our maybe ask for a room on the ground floor as far away from the street as possible.
Excellent place! Extremely friendly front-guy, clean and big rooms, helpful with questions. Would stay here again.
The guest house was a big disappointment especially for the price we paid. Its situated in a far away tiny alley with whatsoever no views. The facilities were non-existent. No food no hot water nothing no map of the city no help in any tours or bookings... The washbasin drainage always got blocked with just water! Over all a very poor experience. Would recommend to skip this place totally if possible...
Sweetest and greatest guy I've ever met before, owner of this guesthouse is just awesome!
Really nice rooms, good wifi, good location, close to all facilities. I would stay here again
Nice basic place to stay. Room a little dark but very comfortable. Helpful owner. Cheap laundry.
First impression was not that good but improved greatly after 1 good night's sleep. Our room was good sized (twin room) and very clean. Located down a side alley but only a 5 minute walk from the main tourist Street and 5 metres from the river. The owner is really friendly and kind and helped us with bag storage, where to eat and what time to see the morning alms. I think if on a budget you will find it difficult to get a better hostel for cheaper than this.
Our stay at Souk Lan Xang was absolutely wonderful. After a two-day slow boat ordeal this was the perfect antidote - a clean, cool room, a great location at the heart of the old town and a wonderfully kind proprietor who couldn't do enough for us. He didn't kick up the slightest stink when we returned to the hostel blind drunk and three hours beyond curfew after a night at the bowling alley... The proprietor alone is reason enough to stay here but all in all it was a spotless, friendly hostel.
The owner was so nice!! He was very helpful and kind.
One of the best locations on the peninsula. The owner is very nice and dedicated. Just a nice place to spend your nights after so much to see in Luang Prabang. Would definitely come back!
I had a nice stay for three nights here. The manager is very friendly and helpful. He always had a smile and a greeting. The room was very quiet, had good bedding and good air conditioning. There are many restaurants within walking distance. I had to use the lobby to access the internet. When I did, the reception was good.

This was our favourtie hostel during our 5 week trip. Really great location(can walk to night market and centre of town within 10mins) along the river. Rooms were large with lovely furniture, big en suite bathroom and very clean and comfortable. The highlight was the man who works here....he was so smiley and helpful and polite, he was a true gem! Highly reccommend this hostel in Luang Prabang.
Excellent guest house, the rooms are very clean and ours was quite large. Great location and the manager is just so friendly and helpful.
Location was fine, 10m walk to main street. We booked a cheap room and it was perfectly adequate. Two single beds, tv, wardrobe and a bathroom. There was aircon but it got very hot. We had to request new sheets and tp but got them immediately. Friendly man at reception was present all day. A basic and cheap option.
Excellent price. Room very very spacious. Excellent hospitality. Some mornings I woke up with smoke coming through the window as nearby homes were making a fire to cook.
The hotel was pretty nice. It is important to notice that it is a bit far from old city center (30 minutes walking). Nonetheless, it is very relaxing and the restaurant is nice but not cheap - very good for relaxing during breakfast and dinner time (at this time you hear music from the restaurant close by which was quite nice for us). Please take into consideration that the rooms are quite basic (nonetheless, ac works). Please note that you can take bikes for free (only 3 really work).
Great little guesthouse, not far from the hubbub, super close to the mekong and the lovely scruffy reastaurants that line it. The manager was very nice, his english a bit spotty, buy not detrimentally so.
Great, clean lovely little guesthouse in a great location. The guy on the counter is extremely helpful for all local information. I would recommend this place and would certainly stay here again when I come back to Luang Prabang.
Great Hostel! Very sweet owner who did everything to make us feel comfortable. Clean rooms however it was not possible to have electricity during nighttime as the lights could not be switched off seperately. Directly situated at the river with some really nice restaurants with river view!
