I love this place and come back here every time I am in Chiang Mai. It isn't a "hopping" atmosphere but it is so clean and excellently located.
The location was absolutely amazing and overrules all the reasons that this place wasn't that great. I would come back just because of how beautiful the view was and the peaceful not-too-many-people atmosphere. If you don't get the deluxe room you are basically sleeping in a shack with a bed and a light bulb hanging from the ceiling. The bathroom is about 100 meters away down some steep stairs and is in deplorable condition (vines hanging through the ceiling, spiderwebs all over.
The room was small but perfectly comfortable. The staff were excellent and able to help us with any questions we had. They have a small collection of books to read and huge collection of DVDs to borrow and watch (there is a. DVD player in each room). The place was kept clean and had a very nice lounge area on the he second floor. It is about a fifteen minute walk from the night market and pub street and it is really close to the Angkor Wat entrance (about 10 minute bike ride).
No complaints. It is what it says it is.
It was all fine. Free breakfast was good but small. Place was pretty clean. Lockers in the dorm rooms but have to bring your own lock. Each bed had its own light and outlet.
No real complaints. The bed was sizable for two people. They gave us an extra towel and blanket when we asked. The staff were kind of non-existent at times and knew little English but we were able to hunt them down every time we needed to. The location was perfect in the center but back behind the restaurants is it wasn't too loud at night.
A pretty good hostel for the price. We booked the hostel five days in advance and when we showed up there only had one available bed (there are two of us). He offered us a private room or we could share the bed and pay half price. We opted for the discount and had an okay nights sleep. I would say they handled the problem quite well.
This hostel was great. Much better than I expected for the location and price. The breakfast to order included was delicious. The beds and rooms were clean and the staff was very helpful in booking buses and such. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone passing through Luang Prabang.
I was very impressed when we arrived at this hostel. We showed up at five in the morning and we were able to go to our room immediately and even get a few hours of sleep! Unheard of in any other hostel I've stayed in. The place was clean. There were big clean blankets on the beds to keep us warm at night. There was hot water available. Each bed has a locker, light and personal outlet. No complaints here!
Good for the price. I like the decorations. The staff member was great and incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. It is just silly that we don't get a top sheet for the bed unless we pay one euro! A kitchen would be nice as well or at least a fridge.
Nice place near the town centre. Clean and friendly, helpful staff. Free breakfast would have made it excellent.
