Food is tasty. Staff is friendly. Sometimes you must make contact with them, but that is a part of the charme of laos. Price compare to what you get is just great. I will eat here again

Manychan might be the only place in town to offer dorms, so it’s a good, cheap option for solo travelers. The beds are thick mattresses on the floor, and there are thick blankets to keep you warm if you’re traveling during the cooler months. The shared bathrooms are located downstairs from the dorm. Wifi is good, even in the room.... More

We stayed there one night and paid 600 000 kips (around 6,50 euro). The room was ok but still not very clean. The People were quite friendly. Breakfast ok.

The food here was good, atleast the Laos food. Our orders for breakfast were not as described and we didn't get half of them. It is in the center of town and on the street, excellent location.

We ate here two nights and can happily say the curry is delicious (coconut based, we had both the chicken and veggie). My partner also really enjoyed the veggie and beer soup. The spring rolls are also delicious. However, the noodle dishes were just average. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good price.
