Facilities: 10/10 - There's a TV room with a 100s of movies to watch, WiFi and 3 PCs to use. Decor: 6/10 - It's an old, well established guesthouse and as such, a little rough around the edges. Having said that, it's also clean, tidy and very reasonably priced. For me, it just added to the charm and character of... More

The couple that own this guesthouse are so lovely and friendly, giving lots of advice on where to explore and where the best places to go are! The rooms are clean and very good for the price! They also have free computers which you can use in their restaurant area :)

We stayed three nights in one of the lower rooms. Seen the low price this room was really good. Spacious enough and decent bathroom. A little worn out but that can be expected for this price. I really advice the lower rooms since they seem to be less warm then upstairs. Less then 5 min walk from the center but... More

This place is a great place to stay. The rooms are simple (bed, shower, fan), but clean. The location is great if you want to have some fun in Vang Vieng, but also want to enjoy a good night of sleep, because the guesthouse is located approx. 10 minutes walk from the most popular bars. The owner of the place... More

A nice and chillout place for backpackers. Chris was a funny and helpful host, told us all about what was around vang vieng and gave us all the information, and more, that we needed. The food was good, the room was good, location was about 5-10 mins from city centre, just keep walking on the main street to find it.... More

The food at the guesthouse was also nice and I recommend the blt baguette! The location was also very good in walking distance of everything you need.However, our last night ruined our trip as service in my... More

I am sorry that you did not feel I gave good service, as this is clearly not the feeling of the vast majority of our guests So to answer your specific complaints You were unhappy with how I answered your (just out of interest ) question about exchanging dollars for kip and visa versa. You paid the bill at the... More

The staff were really helpful and friendly, the food was good and the tv room was fun for recovering. The rooms are what you'd expect for the price you pay - they're very basic and could do with a tidy up, but overall the hostel has a very welcoming feel and it's in a convenient location.

A really nicely run place with lots of different options for rooms (from good private bathroom rooms to cheaper shared ones). The food served in the restaurant is better than most at good prices. The staff seem happy at what they do and provide good service. The hotel offers several chill areas, tv room with lots of movies and free... More
