wifi in most hostels?


im going to be traveling through vientiane and then onwards to siem reap in cambodia

my question is do most hostels (not hotels) have wifi? im thinking about bringing my ipad but dont want to lug it around / worry about it getting stolen if there won't be wifi

but being able to check my email / skype with my girlfriend at night would be awesome!

so tripadvisor, in your past experiences have you found wifi readily available (for free)?

thanks in advance

No. Some do, some don't. You will nearly always find a cafe with wi fi though.

There are many places round Vientiane with free wifi, but the cheaper guesthouses (under $20) generally don't have it. Nearly all guesthouses have it when you start to get get above the $25 mark though.

Most bars & cafes have it in the main tourist area.
