This place is awesome - we originally stayed at the second Khammany Inn round the corner (all still very nice, run by members of the same family) but this hostel is probably better - Thu really knows what she is doing and manages to spin many plates to keep everyone attended to! We live in China (originally from the UK) and the bed, air con (so important in this climate) TV and services are all better than we have back at our own home!
This is an inexpensive place for Luang Prabang, but for what you are paying you get a lot. Don't go expecting perfection and 5* services - there are plenty of places in town to get that - but a great base to go exploring the town around.

We have just opened up a brand new movie room(with A/C) featuring up to date movies and TV shows, the perfect way to relax after the party atmosphere of Vang Vieng and Thailand. We do daily, affordable tours to Kuang Si Waterfall and our knowledgeable staff can help you plan the rest of your trip around Laos and Asia. We also supply bus tickets and tours, laundry service, towel rental, guest computer and printer(free to use) etc. We have a puppy named 'Lana', who can get a little hyper, but if you're a dog person, you will love her friendly, playful nature. Please keep this in mind when booking if you have a fear of dogs, as Lana is always around the reception area and 'playful' is just a code word that she will jump up on you. She is very friendly and has never bit anybody, she will however enjoy chewing on your bracelets. We have 24 hour reception so you don't need to worry about security, or been locked out at night. If your feeling artistic, we would love you to leave your mark on the hostel and we can supply paints and other benefits for anybody willing to put in a little bit of time and effort. ... more less
