4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

The staff are helpful and friendly, the hostel is quirky and the dorm I stayed in was clean and comfortable. The beds aren't the greatest but suitable for what you're paying. Breakfast is good and there's a decent variety. They do need more bathrooms and toilets though. Easy to walk down to the night market and restaurants.

1. Nice and friendly staffs, able to converse in English. 2. Very airy environment, you will feel comfortable to be in the building. 3. Beautiful art wall paintings. 4. Aircond and wifi is working well. Shower has to be shared, but it's clean and the water pressure is strong. Overall, a good place for budget traveller.

We stayed upstairs and had no bed bug problem, and had a private room with a balcony and aircon to ourselves. Very cheap and offer free breakfast so essentially you are paying 70 000 kip for a private room if you take out what you would pay for breakfast.

The staff is very friendly, the painted walls give a nice athmo and the price is nice but that's literally everything positive. Stayed there 3 nights.

In a nutshell this place has average rooms (especially for the price of the private rooms - 120k) but really nice staff. Rooms are very dark and dingy, bed was pretty terrible, could feel all the springs and didn't feel very clean but the place had a nice vibe, included breakfast and the staff were lovely.

The place was very clean. I think they let the lodgers draw on the walls, because it's full of all sorts of art. There are mosquitoes, but that can't really be avoided. The rooms are spacious and air-conditioned. Wifi is pretty good. Bathrooms are fantastic, for a low-budget place. You can also order some food from the staff, but you're... More
