After 18 months of travelling (South America, Aus, NZ, Indonesia and 3 countries in SE Asia) this is among the worst! We were left without a room booking after a trip and after visit 3 full guesthouse we were left with this one! Room is damp and mouldy, bed is hard and it generally resembles a prison cell! Shower is... More

Way above other Pakse guesthouses in the same price range. moved here after a disastrous night's sleep at Sedone. 80,000k for decent, CLEAN room with COMFY mattress, air con and a truly great hot shower. Central 7 boasting a lovely front garden setting. extremely helpful manager/owner/staff, smiley cleaning ladies...basically everything which Sedone lacked, for the same price.

Spent two nights at Thaluang Hotel. Staff was very nice and helpful and the room was clean. The location is also very good, close to Pakse center. Wiki does not work very well in the rooms, but OK in the lobby area.

This place is OK-ish if you need a quick and cheap bed for the night. There were a TON of mosquitoes around, especially in our room. The best word to describe the room is dank. It was very small and dark and smelled quite strongly of mold and ammonia. The walls were stained with mold and water as well. You... More

Stayed here one night as we only did a one day trip to the Bolaven Plateau and Pakse itself hasn't got anything to do. Room was basic and clean for a reasonable price but I wouldn't stay here for a very long time.

Nice rooms, warm water, free wireless internet, friendly staff, Comfortable outside seating in front of the hotel. Few meters from the city center. Good value for the price. I'd recommend to all backpackers.

Its a nice place to stay, staff is helpful. Reception building surrounded by flowers, birds, squirrel and fish. The room is just nice and clean with hard bed, but i'm ok with it. Although the hotel provide wifi, but hardly to get online.

I only wanted a fan room but these rooms only had cold showers so I spent a little extra to get the hot shower and aircon room. The first room I was shown had a broken tv but more importantly a broken shower head - no water coming out. The chap said he would start fixing them immediately but I... More

Decent room for what you pay. A/C worked well. Our room had a cold shower and a squat toilet which is common in Laos but there were better rooms available. The front desk staff were very helpful in booking tours and buses for us. Good location.

We came here after Sabaidy 2 guest house told us that they were already booked. They gave us a "bungalow"-like room in the back for $10. We were made to pay before seeing the room. The moment the receptionist opened the door to our room, mosquitoes started swarming towards us. He promptly left the room without any explanation and we... More
