This hostel was quite sufficient for a few nights stay. Cost was 40,000kip including a simple breakfast & coffee/tea. Rooms were cleaned daily. Showers were mostly hot. Wifi worked well. Some staff members were very helpful, others not so much. Good location in the centre of town.

Pros: - Good value for money - Free breakfast - Good location - Decent toilet/shower rooms - Lockers available under the bed Cons: - No free water - No free towels Tips: Don't have to book for the hostel. There's usually some space. Just show up at the front desk.

Finally got to bed - noisy dorm full of mosquitos. No natural light or air. Smelt of feet. Good showers and... More

I met some cool travelers here. However, when I was in the bathroom alone, the main staff (the owner?) came to give me a "massage" during which he put his private part against my butt. It was disgusting. I pulled away and he claimed that me being friendly and smiling gave him the impression I wanted something more. He continued... More

You get what you pay for. The beds are a bit hard but the rooms are clean and so are the toilets and showers. An ok breakfast is included in the price. Nice central location so easy to walk to both the riverside and the city center.
