I did't sleep at the hostel but I've done the tour of the Plain of Jars with Mr. Kong. It was absolutely a fantastic tour! Mr. Kong take you to all the 3 sites and give you a lot of information about the "most secret place in the world" and the UXO sites. He was very informative and give you... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was our favourite guest house in Southeast Asia so far. The rooms were clean and nice with very hot showers (great as it was quite cold). Kong and his wife were attentive hosts. Kong speaks perfect English and is extremely knowledgeable about the area. He also runs some good value tours with... More

We took the tour to Jar Site 1, Hmong village, Thom Piu Cave, and hotsprings. Kong's tours are better priced than anywhere else in town (that we checked), and had a very personal feel to it. The Hmong children love to see him coming because he gives them balloons, which is adorable. We learned a lot and saw a lot!... More

I spent three nights and did a one-day trip with Mr Keo to the bomb village, a hmong village and a craters site: very nice and clean room with everything needed and great trip with a lot of explanations on Laos and historical events, plus a very nice trip to some hot springs... The owner (and tour guide) and his... More

I stayed at the guesthouse and took a tour with Kong, as was recommended to me by travelers I met in another city. Kong was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. During the tour, he provided a heartfelt and honest perspective of the landscape and the events that took place, unlike too many other tour guides who gloss over facts or... More

We had a great time here. We were there in low season so it wasn't very busy, but we had a clean comfortable room with a fan. There is a common area with a fire pit every night which is great. The owners kids are always around, my girlfriend taught them to hula hoop, it was so fun and cute.... More

Stayed here for two nights and is was ok. If you are looking for new and nice rooms you will be disappointed. However if you are looking for a cheap place to sleep this is a great place. 5 minutes from the bus station. there always seem to be other people around the fire at night, and Kong is a... More

We stayed here for two nights and did the tour of the jar sites with them. The rooms are basic, but ensuite with well working fan and mosquito net (though we didn't need it, since there were no mosquitos in the room). Not the newest rooms, but very good value - included towels, soap, small water bottles. The staff is... More

What an amazing tour Kong gave. I would thoroughly recommend anyone coming to Phonsovan to join Kong on a tour. Initially I thought the tour a little expensive but it was totally worth the money. Kong is super fun to be with, charasmatic, full of information and speak great English. He made my experience what it was! I left Phonsovan... More
