Great location, friendly staff, clean bathrooms. I will definitely stay here again.


Really clean air con dorm. Beds were a little hard but the pillows were perfect. Renting a moto from there was cheap and its right next to the river and lots of shops, bars, and restaurants. Would recommend.


The staff is very unfriendly. The owner came into our room every night, turnt the light on and didnt close the door after he left. A women, working at the hostel, came in our room looking for somethinge. We had to stop her looking into other peoples backpack and other belongings. The beds were really hard. There are no keys for the room. So verybody can walk into the room. Wouldnt stay there again. Its cheap and for a short stay in Vientiane ok, but wouldnt recomend the place!


The dorms and facilities were clean. Wifi was choppy in the bedrooms but ok in the communal area. There is access to computers, drinks and a locked storage space under the bunks. Staff were helpful and friendly. Each morning we had a free breakfast, which was basic but fine. Good value for money, good location. Easy access to food and bars, there is also bicycle and motorbike rental, which is good since there's not much to do in Vientiane. Bus tickets are also available.


Good location. Nice staff. i stayed on the third floor and toilets were on the first floor so that was a pain. Not the nicest or cleanest hostel!!


The owners were very kind and helpful - great value for money with a good breakfast included. Excellent shower and a very clean room. Couldn't have asked for any more!


just so so. I tried to hang my clothes but nowhere. the 2nd floor is on decorating, no shampoo no body gel. But they accept payment by card,that's good!


Nice common area, good free breakfast. Drinks are available to buy but there is not free tea and coffee as it says on hostelworld. Not a lot of functioning power sockets.


Excellent shower, great location, kind staff.


Close to the arch and lots of good coffee shops. Could be cleaner, I definitely saw a cockroach. Not a great atmosphere for meeting people


Good location


Dorm rooms super hot and stuffy at night, and bunks are dangerously high up. Also the only two toilets are on the first floor, which is a total pain to have to use in the middle of the night.


Dorm very warm


Place is oké, 20 and 16 bed rooms. Beds could be sheltered beter with curtains. Bathroom is downstairs as are the showers.


Stayed in a 20 person dorm. It's what you'd expect. Beds were comfy, lockers for backpacks under bunks, and free breakfast. Staff was very helpful.


4 showers, 2 toilets, for the whole complex. And the toilets dont work. Two showers have only cold water. Its not very clean.


We emailed the hostel a week before our stay telling them that we will be arriving from Luang Prabang on the night bus and would only rest at the hostel for a few hours before checking out. Despite paying the complete day's rate, when we arrived in the morning at 7AM we were told that there were no beds and we would have to wait till 9:30 to get a bed (checkout is 11:30). After some argument we were given a couple of beds in Funky Monkey hostel. Location is great though and breakfast was decent.


Good location, but staff and atmosphere were meh. No lock on doors, but there are lockers. Facilities and cleanliness were ok


Good location and pretty good atmosphere. Not the cleanest place in the world but you get free breakfast and its in a pretty central location.


Good place overall.
