We stayed here for 3 nights. It's located near the water fountain and the Scandanavian Bakery (yummy!). It's about a 20min walk to the COPE centre. The room was fine for budget accomodation, it didn't have any windows to the outside just one onto the corridor. The two things we were unhappy about was the hotel offers bike hire but all he bikes were broken! So we were sent elsewhere. Also they offer a laundry service but ask for no bras or pants!! That's a poor laundry service if you ask me!


Be Aware!: This hostel says it has "Twin" beds but they do not. Additionally, they are very stingy when it comes to making up for their own mistake. After being very frustrated with their inability to appropriately put the right bed on hostelworld's website, the receptionist said there was nothing he could do (specifically give me a better rate for their mistake). After many phone calls with many people, they finally lowered the price but they should have done that immediately.

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).
