We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The rooms are spotlessly clean, quiet, comfortable and well-equipped; the staff are friendly and helpful; the location is great with the main area of bars and restaurants very near by. A good breakfast is available too. Overall great value. We returned to Vientiane the following weekend to stay again, and would happily return again if we ever go back to the city.


Great location Fine breakfast Air conditioner a little noisy.

Our room didn't have a window to outside, but we at least had a private bathroom. Small room but in a great location right close to the main tourist area. Lots of shops and restaurants. They have buses and tours you can book through them which is very easy.


We wouldn't advice to stay in this hostel despite the quiete good location as the room was really small with a window on the corridor. The atmosphere was not special and be careful if you want to book a bus ticket through the hostel staff (specially sleeping bus).


When we arrived after a sweaty bus ride we showed up at the hotel only to be told that someone had missed the email regarding our reservation and they were full so we could not stay there. The guy at the front desk was not apologetic and initially tried to suggest we had made a mistake when booking, though we had the confirmation number and email. He told us we could stay at his friend's place next door, which was much older and did not have all the ammenities, as well the hot water did not work


small room, no window... super slow wifi, very average stuff...


This is a great little find. Very clean, and near to everything too. The staff were wonderful and a massive help to us when we lost our iPhone on the back of a tuk tuk! We would definitely stay here again. Thanks again iHouse! :-)


Just a fairly good place to rest your head for night. Clean and big bed in a small room. Tv and wifi where good. And bathroom facilities where nice and clean. Good location near the fountain. And easy to walk round from there.
