Really good location, short walk to all the restaurants, shops and night market. Accommodation is relatively basic but all you need and the owner was lovely and always willing to help- even providing umbrellas for those rainy days! Good AC and wifi. We would definitely stay here again!

I was a little skeptical when we first arrived, but the rooms are big and nice and many AC units/fans. Good location, right in the old town, and the owner couldn't be nicer. He watches a lot of TV, but speaks English well, and will help you get whatever you need.

Very friendly owner, who does everything by himself. Big bathroom and nice shower, comfortable beds. No breakfast included. Laundry services are offered as well. Pricey. Would stay there again upon return to Laos.

We had a lovely stay at the guest house. The man who owns the guest house is extremely helpful and dotes on your every need. Offers free water and tea without need to ask. If you're looking for a boozy hostel stay, I wouldn't say it's that kind of environment. However it was very quiet and perfect for what we...

We booked for 1 night and ended up staying for 3. The owner was lovely, always available and couldn't have been more helpful. This was the first place we stayed in on our travels and 7 hostels later is still the best. Excellent wifi and perfect location nearby an abundance of restaurants/street stalls and near enough to many of the...

We stayed at this guest house in Luang Prabang for one night. After a 12 hour bus journey the lovely owner went out of his way to make us feel welcome, offering free tea and coffee, and wifi passwords. We weren't supposed to check in until 1pm, and arrived at 9am due to getting the earlier bus. As soon as...

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...

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...

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...
