If you get into Vientiane by bus this is the place where you'll be dropped off at. Dorms are cheap (I think they're 16 bed dorms) - beds are relatively comfy. Facilities are good, free wifi, free breakfast. Towel and padlock will need to be sorted out by yourself. The place is close to the river and there's everything you... More

Great location in central Vientiane. Large dorm rooms were clean and had secure lockers and very effective air con. Bathrooms and showers also okay. Staff helped with bus ticket booking. The free breakfast is pretty small but can't really complain. The only real negative is a the pretty barren hostel lobby. More could be done to make it a nice... More

This hostel might be the best-located one in all Vientiane, moreover it's a very good value, and breakfast is included. Staff is very nice and helpful. Wi-fi is reliable and fast. Not a party place, but perfect is you only plan to stay a few days

This is a good value hostel in the center of Vientiane. The wifi is amazing, you get free breakfast and a decent bed. The rooms are clean, there is good AC. It is the same price for all dorms, so try to ask for a smaller one, because 20 people can be a bit much. The beds are a bit... More

Great atmosphere for sure, great location, situated literally right, slap bang in the city central.Definitely a more party orientated hostel, so the quieter ones may not approve of such a hostel.Dorms were clean with great AC. Free breakfast. Super close to the night market. Helpful and friendly staff. We would stay here again and we recommend it

The beds were reasonably clean but the dorm lay outs were terrible. I'm tall so I often felt my feet kicking through the end of the bed at someone's head and when I discussed this with the other guests I found I wasn't the only one and it wasn't only tall people that realized this. The free breakfast was ok,... More
