The right place to stay, lots of backpackers and it's in the center with all the restaurants and bars etc. Rooms where good, the fans did their job in the dorm and free breakfast is always a victory. They rent out bicycles and scooters and arrange bus tickets and visas, but when you your own transportation you can go to... More

We had planned to stay 2 nights but checked out after one night as we had massive bed bugs in our bed. Other people left too. I was in the tiger dorm, the nicer of the 3 dorms. Yet they were big fully grown bed bugs! They didn't question us when we asked to leave early they very easily knew... More

This hostel only has dorm rooms so only suits backpackers who do not care for privacy. The staff is rather nice and the services offered are very various (tour bookings, bus tickets...). Prices ares really fair, whether for the dorm beds or for the different ticket bookings. The hostel is also clean, one drawback is the bathrooms, they only have... More

I stay in Anaconda Dorm, a bit dark but all is clean, with a reading light and safe locker. The cotmmon place on ground floor is perfect for those who wanna... More

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
