    Clean, great beds and pillows, and the front desk is super helpful. Tour and rental prices are some of the best I've seen in Luang Prabang. Highly recommend!

    This is a great hostel. Location is amazing. The staff is SUPER helpful and they even have better prices than nearby vendors for beer, laundry, and such. My only complaint is that the bathrooms do not have soap in them, so you have to bring your own soap to the bathroom every time you use it.

    A nice enough place to stay. It’s in a great, central location. The showers are warm and the beds are decent too which was appreciated. A nice breakfast is also included. There wasn’t really anything social going on here though and the cleanliness is just fine. It was fine for me because I knew other people in town, but if you want someplace to meet people you might want to look elsewhere.

    Overall a great hostel. Good location right next to the night market and near the hill for the viewpoint. Main issue is that they overcharged us for the room when we went back for a second time which was about annoying.

    Great location, really friendly staff and a great free breakfast. The cleanliness of the place however could be improved, the bathroom was clean with bins emptied on the first day we were there but by day 3 bins were overflowing, floors and surfaces were visibly unclean and the duvets in the rooms don’t get washed between each guest - they just get folded up and reused as we watched the cleaners do this every day! My duvet also smelled very sweaty 😖

    CLOSED (Do not book as you may not get your deposit back)We showed up and the door was locked, there was nothing to get in. Same story with Downtown backpackers 2. A good alternative is Friends guesthouse in front of Downtown backpackers 2, the lady managing it is super sweet.
