The guesthouse is located fairly nicely. It is a short stroll to the river where the night market is held. It is close to the center of town and you can reach all of the good restaurants and bars by foot.
It was a double ensuite and it would have been a struggle for one traveler. Extremely small and poorly laid out. We did manage to sneak a peek into a twin room and it was quite a bit larger. They don't clean the room unless you leave the key. The water makes a loud pumping noise any time you use the shower/tap/toilet. That goes for your neighbor upstairs as well. So better hope your on the same bathroom break schedule during the night, otherwise your going to be woken up a LOT!
The staff is actually pretty helpful. Sometimes there is a language break down, so you need to make sure you are understood.
DON'T get your Cambodia visa here or anywhere. We paid $39 to get our visa, thinking this would circumnavigate any trouble at the border. The fact is, if you are going over the border with a bus company that does cross border travel they take care of everything for you anyway. Those that were on the bus with us paid a total of $30 for their visa. We paid $39 in Vientiane AND we had to give an extra $6 per passport for the customs stamps. Think we got through some line quicker? Nope, same wait.
