A really good little hostel close to the centre of town (Nam Phou fountain, riverside and That Dam). The bunks were cleaned and you could stow your bag in the cupboard underneath. Breakfast included in the price, free wifi and internet. The staff were helpful and relaxed - they let me hang out all day using the facilities whilst waiting for my bus out of town. Nice hostel, I'd go back
Smoking should NOT be allowed in the common area. Lockers under the beds should be improved as one can reach for the bags from under the mattress.
Not great, but an acceptable hostel. No room keys, and a flimsy locked cupboard to keep your belongings safe. Good location.
Nice hostel with friendly and helpful staff! Good dorms and beds, with every bed an electric output and light. The free breakfast is good, and it's very easy to arrange your onward travel from there.
There were bedbugs and staff seemed unsure of how to get rid of them.
As good as you're going to get for a Laos hostel, I'd say. Central enough location, good atmosphere, A/C could be better. As it says, there are only two toilets and three showers but it somehow seems to work, there's never a queue. Would definitely recommend for Vientiane!
Pros: Good location, very easily to get around in this tiny capital city. The staff was quite friendly. Good bed. Cons:There were many mosquitos inside the bathrooms.
Most people are in Vientiane for a stopover when travelling on from Laos so this hostel is perfect. Good breakfast, good shower and dark rooms for a great sleep. From the airport tuk tuks drop you in city centre and the hostel is just down a side street.. Near good restaurants and bank. Perfect for a short stopover
