Started off on a weird foot with the guy at the front desk because he was complaining to us about his alcoholic father. That aside, the rooms were clean and comfortable as were the toilets and showers. Wi-fi was spotty in the rooms but worked great in the common areas. The best part about this hostel is that it's right... More

We didnt book this hostel in advance, but when we walked in they showed us their private room and shared for three people and decided to stay straight away. it's pretty clean, has a balcony and wifi bit spotty. Close to everywhere you wanted to go in Vang Vieng no complain but yah, lack of service from the staff.

This place is definitely worth staying in! Apart from the fair prices, the staff was really friendly and helpful (the guy from the reception speaks English), they could help us with all our needs. The owner often showed a smile on her face. There are 6 and 4 bed dorms in the hostel as well as single and double private... More

Dorms are only fans and way too hot. Private rooms are spacious and nice air con is a must but charged for extra. Really need to clean the rooms more tho in the end I had to ask to have it cleaned, for new towels and toilet roll and just the simplest thing of getting the bin emptyed. Very central... More

Normally I don't really complain about hostels, despite the fact that the wifi was horrible and there was vomit against the wall of my bed I've honestly probably stayed in worse places. What did bother me however was how unfriendly the staff was, I had hurt my leg and was bleeding pretty badly, when I hobbled up to the reception... More

We stayed here for about 3 nights and it was great. They even had laundry service. The rooms were spacious enough and the place is in a great location. We definitely recommend it! We stayed on March 2015

The outside was a bit intimidating with its construction, but it's huge inside. Well kept and in perfect location to everything. My friend and I took a private room with our own bathroom for 200000kip total. It was worth it. The staff wasn't particularly friendly or helpful, there was no breakfast, and the wifi didn't work in our room at... More

It's in the center of the city, perfect location. Pretty clean, nice showers. It's calm, not for partyin. They have nice balconies on every flore, and the staff is really nice and helpful. Also they have lockers,but you need to use your own lock.
