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

The bed was okay, not the noisy dorm I expected. It didn't seem like they change the sheets after a guest checks out, though. It's a good place, however, to meet people, as with any other dorm/hostel. Also, the receptionist was a bit creepy. He wanted to take a picture with me so he can show it to his friend,... More

The staff were very unhelpful, with a throwaway attitude, and the beds dirty. The beds were also rock hard giving all my dorm back ache. Would not recommend this hostel at all. The staff don't change the bed sheets between travellers either.
