I stayed here with my boyfriend for 3 nights! After an initial hiccup of the host not expecting us we were shown promptly to our room. It serves it's purpose very close to the restaurants and night market, an easy 5 min stroll away!! The host is lovely very kind and friendly.

This hostel has a brilliant central location that is a nice walking distance from most attractions. Additionally, the street next to it is one of the main routes for the Monk's alms walk making it very easy to get up at 6am and see them without fuss or hassle. Unfortunately the wifi only works in the lobby area, however, it... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in one of the upstairs rooms for 5 nights. The room was large, clean, and the bathroom had wonderfully HOT shower. The location is in a nice part of the city, close to the Mekong. The best part was the host, Ah (spelling?). He was genuinely welcoming, helpful, and always smiling. He speaks English very... More

We stayed 3 nights at main floor, didn't like our room much, little bit humid, damp.. I also read reviews who stayed upstair, it seems to be a lot better than our experience. Except that, location was pretty good, owner is extremely friendly and nice, cheap. If I go to LP again, if I can stay at upstair, I will... More

A lot of great reviews for this guesthouse, I can say I did not feel the same way, we slept on the main level- or should I say we stayed on the main level, but did not get a whole lot of sleep as the sound proofing was poor, and it sounded like elephants were walking around above us. I... More

We stayed at Souk Lan Xang for 3 nights. We were extremely impressed with the cleanliness of the property, especially our room, bathroom, and bed sheets. The sheets were crisp to touch, just like a hotel's. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. The guesthouse is on the route of the monk's alm service, and...

The location of this hostel is good (quiet and near the Mekong) and the guy in the recepection is really helpful and is always there to provide information and help in everything. Nonetheless, that is pretty much it in our opinion - rooms are clean but quite basic. Additionally, the Wi-fi did not work in our room which was quite... More

Man, the basic rooms were pretty good, then the owner upgraded us to a bigger room on the second floor. If you're staying more than a day in a private room, OPT FOR THE SECOND FLOOR. The first floor is okay but the second floor is AMAZING. The rooms are spacious, clean and so comfortable while the owner is so... More

This guesthouse was exactly what we were looking for. Incredibly clean, good hot shower, and a lovely owner. The beds are very comfortable and it is in perfect walking distance of everywhere. I really enjoyed it, but without a doubt the owner is the best. He is always smiley, and happy to help with whatever you need--he even let us... More

Everything was good. The owner will do everything so his guests enjoy a nice time. It's beside the Mekong River and near of everything. The decoration it's charming, the bed are great, and the sheets are very high quality. There's no breakfast, but right in front of this guesthouse has a lot of very good places to have breakfast with... More
