“A superb hostel in South East Asia”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

This is my third time to stay in this cozy, clean, friendly, money worthed budget accommondation. For as little as USD 11, you can get a comfortable fan room (shared bathroom). There are several types of room fitting for various kinds of guests. Add USD 2 you can have a delious full western and local cuisine breakfast buffet. There are cpmplimentary drink and coffee for the guests from 10:00 - 17:00. It is not easy to find in other budget hotels all over the world.

Considering the best location location (2 minutes walk to the riverfront park and the night market, definitely this a underpriced guest house.

After staying at the Saysouly for approximately the same price this place did indeed seem like paradise. The staff run a tight ship and the breakfast is good value.

Problems: two of the four rooms I stayed in had an ant problem. Internet was patchy at best.

We had a double fan room for 14$ with shared bathroom on 4th floor (elevator) with a view over Vientiane (but too much smoke/dust everywhere to see far...). Breakfast was good, but not included. Thousands of signs with houserules gave us amusement...

After looking at lots of Guesthouses in Vientiane and trying to keep spending down one hotel suggested Mixay Paradise! Definitely the best price and excellent in every way except Internet a bit off and on. Rooms nice, separate showers and toilets but kept spotlessly clean in fact, everything is kept remarkably clean, like a 5 star hotel clean! I got breakfast included, a buffet breakfast which is really nice, rice and meat and bread and jams and coffee, as much as you want, lots of staff around to help with anything, just ask and they do it. It really is an amazing place to stay and I would suggest looking here first. The Guesthouse has a full kitchen so you can eat all meals here cheaply, in fact it is really a hotel but wants to be budget, but very quiet, I can't say anything bad about it. The view from my room is right down over Wat Mixay, it is a short walk to many different restaurants and close to the river, the night market, you can hire bikes, even the swimming pool and bowling alley are not that far away (an easy walk). I am here 9 nights and will return in October for sure.
Easy to find, Rue Francois Ngin alongside front entrance of Wat Mixay.

Room Tip: Room 414, corner room so views North and East, 4th floor has best views

The hotel is located very close to the riverside and the night market. I stayed in a single room with shared bathroom and it was ok. There is only one fan in the ceiling and it gets very hot at night, so you may want to get a room with AC.

The staff is very friendly however the atmosphere is not that friendly. Everywhere you go you see signs like: "No alcohol allowed - you will be immediately fined 200.000 Kip", "You're not allowed to bring guests to your room", "You can't bring coffee to your room" - even on the key hanger it says "Key lost or broken will be charged 70.000 Kip"..

It's really too bad they do that. You feel like you are being watched all the time..

Well. We booked the room in the corner of 4 floor with shared bathroom. A little bit overpriced as everything in the capital -12 dollars for shared bath but everything was fine. It was very light and has a common balcony, clean and a temple view ( although its no good to be the higher than tha temple). The stuff polite and friendly. Some cakes and free coffee for the guests. Clean bathrooms. But so strange : too many restrictions all over the hotel: dont smoke, dont wash your clothes, dont eat food in the room, dont dry your clothes on the balcony and fines, fines, fines. I've never seen such a "prohibited" hotel. Why? 2 notices on the room door: do not smoke. Why so many? Feels like in prison. I will highly reccomend this hotel for travellers but for the owner : make it less restricted.

Very good value accommodation in central part of Vientiane. Short walk to many restaurants, night market etc. Very helpful staff. Day trips can be booked as well as transport onto other areas. Simple but pleasant breakfast available for a small extra charge.

Room Tip: Recommend paying a little extra for a room with TV as they are markedly larger rooms. They can be di...
