This guesthouse is perfectly located in the middle of town, surrounded by restaurants and lots of agency's to book day trips with. I was initially nervous after reading a review which stated rooms on the top floor (D rooms) where very hot and of course we were given the keys to D9. However, I must say that the room wasn't...

Location is great, just in the heart of Vang Vien and next to several restaurants, banks, pharmacies, marts, and tourist services. Staff is friendly and their English is ok for most situations. Facilities are OK for a budget hostel. Contras: The bathrooms are leaking all the time, and it's annoying because the floor is always wet and also ecological impact... More

Good quality for the price you pay. Clean and very cheap, we opted for a private double for the same cost as most dorm beds in other places. Staff was friendly and helpful and I wasn't worried about security. Location is prime so it's very noisy and walls are super thin.

I booked here online before going to Vang Vieng a few weeks - could only book a dorm bed so chose this. The owners were really great - I called to tell them I was arriving very late from Luang Prabang so he slept in the reception to make sure he could check me in when I eventually arrived at... More

Room was plain and simple with no frills but for 60,000 a night for double fan in high season you can't expect more. Clean and nice room with balcony, bed, desk, hot water, and wifi in the lobby. Right in the middle of town so everything is extremely close but it can get a little noisy. Rooms on the top... More

I didn't end up staying here, but I did get to meet the owner and she was extremely nice. I was very, very lost and looking for the Thai embassy and ended up stopping at Vieng Vilay and asking the landlady for directions. After chatting for a bit, she offered to drive me to the embassy and pointed out some... More

This is a great place to stay in Vang Vieng, and the place is huge so there are plenty of options to choose from. We took up a double ensuite room with fan on the top floor for 60,000 kip. It was clean, spacious and had recently been refurbished. This place is in a great central location as you have... More

Probably the best hostel in Vang Vieng, location-wise. The rooms are not the best though. They are old, but the staff keeps it clean all the time. The Internet is actually pretty good, for Vang Vieng where most connections suck. Best to check the rooms first before checking in. I ended up staying here for a week though because the... More
