This was the first place we looked at and after a long journey decided to stay. We got a double room at the front of the guest house near reception for 70,000 kip per night, roughly £5. We ended up staying 5 nights. There are cheaper options in the area but once the backpack was opened we chose the lazy option to stay put. The room was never cleaned while we stayed here, we didn't get clean towels or extra toilet roll, even when we left key at reception. There are so many rules to adhere to. The room was next to the owners kitchen, the outdoor seating area and reception so noisy at times but not too bad. The plus side is the wifi wasn't too bad from this room. There was ants in the room and saw 1 small cockroache but nothing to really concern or bother me. The bed was hard but that's standard in Asia. The real plus of this place is the location. Outside there is sandwich ladies, so ideal in the morning to go buy a sandwich and bring it back to the guesthouse communal area and eat it with a cup of complimentary coffee or tea supplied by the guest house, while listening to the Hill Myna birds muttering away. The tubing rentals is basically a 1 minute walk, the last tubing stop is 3 mintues down the road at Smile bar. There is lots of restaurants in the street and bars.
