The guide was mediocre and told us he had only been called the morning of the first trek to be told he was required even though we had...

Okay, so what do you expect for a remote town in northern Laos that was the opium capital of SE Asia? English (nor French) is not their first language and that can sometimes lead to some blank stares, but unfriendly they are not. Nice wooden rooms, very decent food, if not prepared at lightning speed. But this is a family-run...

On the positive side, the setting is pleasant, with the rooms arranged around a large garden, and the rooms are spacious. The beds are comfortable, with adequate blankets for the cold nights of our visit. On the negative side, hot water for the shower is heated on demand by a small device on the wall, and during our visit was...

Very big room. The whole building is a wooden structure. Shower water is cold, despite a heater. The sheets does not smelt very clean! Owners are not friendly. The only friendlyperson is the son-in-law, who organise very good trips to the hilltribes. Included breakfast and wifi. Restaurant with very good food, made by the daughter

The guest house is located in the quiet place in Muang Sin. One of the staff can speak English and supported me a lot for the city sight seeing. Also the guest house handing many varieties of trekking and kayaking etc.I tried the home stay tour in a village was excellent experience and the guide was well experienced.

Great place to start your discovery tour through the north of Laos and to visit some of the minority people. Lovely (rotan) bungalows with outside terras. Guesthouse was better than expected. Good bed. Somewhat noisy during Chinese New Year and guests with young children. Breakfast ok.

The guesthouse itself is ok. The setting is nice with the garden around and the rooms are fine as well. Its bamboo bungalows with bathroom. The hot showers did not work properly, but apart from that there was no issue with the room. The issue was more with the owners. There is a young lady working, who is incredibly rude....

We trekked overnight from Luang Namtha to Muang Sing via Old Falangs trail before arriving at this guest house. When we arrived, we were surprised to see a lovely garden and big, clean rooms (bungalow). The bed was firm and the sheets were very clean. Bathroom was fine and spacious with hot shower available although pressure was a bit low....
