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.

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!

Fantastic experience. The only issue is that wifi does not work in the room. The staff is very agreeable and considerate. The location is good and the decor is above average for the price.
Located in a great area of Luang Prabang right by the Mekong, there are great places to eat just a few minutes from the guest house. The adorable little man that runs this hostel will do his best to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Please note that the curfew is 11:30 pm as the city itself has a curfew of midnight. Most bars do close by 11pm so this was hardly an issue!
The man who runs this place is the nicest person ever! He went out of his way to help guests as much as possible. The rooms are nice and clean and have a homey feel. It is a peaceful, quiet place with an area outside to talk to fellow guests. Really wonderful guesthouse!
The reception was incredibly friendly and made us feel welcome. The hostel is small so not much of an atmosphere but the outside social area made it easy to meet the others staying there
The owner was such a lovely man. He made our stay very enjoyable! We would definitely come back here again.
Owner is friendly and helpful. Rooms were nice and clean. Great location, just around the corner from the night market.
A lovely guesthouse in a good location. The room was spotless and was beautifully made up. The man who runs this place was very friendly and was always around. It also has a great communal area at the front terrace. It was the best place we stayed in Laos. Excellent value for money and would recommend this place to anybody visiting Luang Prabang!
Great little guesthouse. Rooms (AC & hot water) were clean and the bed was really comfy. Perfect central location in a quiet neighborhood - we got some of the best sleep during our time in SEA. The owner is friendly but his English is not the best, so communication can be a bit hard. He doesn't offer any tours and you can't expect a lot of help organizing your stay in Luang Prabang. Overall good value for money!
This hostel is nestled off a side street one block away from the river and one block away from the main tourist drag. It's run by an extremely accommodating and friendly man who bends over backwards to ensure you have a pleasant stay at his hostel. Booked a private room with my girlfriend and had comfortable beds and clean bathroom. Just bring earplugs because their is a neighborhood rooster.
