This is a big place with a lot of people coming and going - the staff didn't even recognise us (not sure how this reflects on the security of the place). Our room was tiny and had no window. It's not great value for money but it's okay and comfortable enough. The location is decent and they will organise transport for you.

The room was alright, but considering breakfast is not included 110.000 kip is pretty expensive for a double bed room with a/c but no television. You can get better rooms for the same money and sometimes breakfast is included so look somewhere else. Also, the Wifi doesn't work very well and they turn it off around 11.30 pm.
The bed was very good and the room was reasonably clean. Not enough power-outlets, no wifi in the room. The staff were ok, but there was only one kid around who spoke proper english when we had questions.
We got out of here after only 1 night and found a better place (Mixay Inn). Not recommended, find someplace better! It's not hard around the area.

The Guest-house is well located in Vientiane, close to bars and restaurants and several of the sights.

Although the room was spacious the bathroom hadn't been cleaned since the last occupant and there was no window. The staff are okay if perhaps a bit disinterested and the wi-fi was turned off at 11p.m. whic is perhaps a bit early.

My advice is that are definitely better places to stay in the city.

We stayed at the Mixay for five nights. Clean dorm and bathrooms, friendly staff and good aircon!!
Location very convenient to explore Vientiane. Highly recommendable!

P.S. Get some bicycles from the shop on the other side on the road (10.000 Kip / 24hours) and explore Vientiane cycling. It's really worth it. If you are fit cycle to the Buddha Park (27km one way), it's not too far and a nice bike tour along the Mekong.

Room Tip: The dorm on the 4th floor is really good.
