DONT STAY HERE. My friends checked into this guesthouse or I would have never stayed there. They start by telling you they have 80,000 kip rooms available but then when you go to check in they tell you they dont have them so you have to pay 120,000 kip. However half of there other building was empty. Then the owner... More

We were greeted by one of the staff just after getting off the slow boat. We were tired so just wanted to get some where to take our bags off. We got a triple room which was perfect. It wasn't really bad at all. The wifi annoyed me a bit. Only annoying thing was being told to be quiet when... More

The room is fine, but there are so many stories with the young receptionist... seriously women be careful. He will go for a "hug" and then try to make out with you. He overcharges and pockets money - - so sorry because otherwise the place is pretty nice.

The room itself was very basic and crawling with various species of insects & bugs.  The toilet leaked everytime it was flushed which lead to a constant sewerage smell. The solution?...a number of small airfresheners placed strategically around the bathroom.   Definitely the worst thing about this hostel was the little weird man that slept in the lobby! He portrayed himself... More

Average place really. If your looking to stay 1 night then not to bad. More nights then you may want to look elsewhere but this place does the job. Remember you get what you pay for, this is a 2 star lower end of the guest house market. We paid 90 kip, not sure how that stacks up in the... More

We arrived on the slowboat and met a representative from this place at and decided to just go there for one night and see how it went from there. Had we read the reviews on tripadvisor we probably wouldn't have stayed here but we had a very pleasant stay and wound up spending 5 nights. The price was very cheap... More

Well the Wifi in the lobby was intermittent and painfully slow to the point of being useless to book flights, AC broken,... More

We were there 4 nights, and it was ok. Free banana, Water and horrible coffee and tea. The worst thing was that you ever give the passport to them if you want to rent anything except to rent a bicycle. I mean, they have all our belongings in our room and need in additional the passport? C' am on...! So... More

At first the place seemed nice but at least it was a little loud sometimes and it is expensive as well. But I really was angry about the fact, that they always wanted our passports when we wanted to rent a scooter or even a bicycle!when you don't want to give it to them they get angry and send you...
