Funky Monkey Hostel
Ranked #22 of 107 Specialty Lodging in Vientiane
Reviewed February 6, 2013

I booked here for 2 nights, arrived at 9.30am and was told by other guests that check in was around 11am, I couldn't check in until 12pm. After lugging my bags up 4 flights of stairs I had realised I wasn't staying in a hostel and that it was in fact more like a prison. The paint was chipping off the walls., ants everywhere, bathrooms unclean and 22 people were sharing one bathroom. So for 50,000kip/ night I don't think it was great value.

Positive aspects were that breakfast was free with a range of choices and those on reception were very helpful with any queries I had. The layout of the communal area is great for meeting people too.

The layout of the hostel promote a lot of social interaction. Met lots of sound people. The dorms were large and clean. Breakfast is included which is nice and free whiskey drinks in the evening. All of which makes it a good value for money hostel.
