Small room, lots of posters on the Walls stating rules. Felt very much like a big hotel rather than a guesthouse. Staff were ok, price was ok. Location was good though. average overall, I probably wouldn't stay there again if I was back in vientene.

There seems to be only a few cheap places in Vientiane but Mixay is definately top of the list. They have no booking system so make sure you arrive early. We arrived at 11 AM and got the last double room available. Our room was little but very clean and nice. The bead was very comfortable as well. Location is good and service was friendly. They also provide you with drinking water and coffee/ tea and two pieces of toast every morning.

Travel agents will tell you it is a hassle to cross the Thailand- Laos border; it's not. I was in Nong Khai, Thailand and decided to go to Laos spontaneously. I went to a travel agent to buy a bus ticket to Viantiane. He told me I should let him get a VISA for me to avoid hassle at the border. Of course, it would cost me a 'little' extra. I left the shop with only the bust ticket. I made a reservation at a hotel in Viantiane where I intended to stay for 3 or 4 nights. However, after one night, I decided to move to Mixay guest house to save money. The moment I checked in, I forgot I was traveling alone. I stayed 2 nights in a single room and 3 in one of the dorms. The rooms (although basic) are clean and cheap and the location is great. The staffs are friendly and will help you with almost everything. A great place for backpackers :)

Room Tip: In case you don't have earplugs with you, try avoiding rooms facing the road. Also, some rooms d...

I can't say anything was good or bad about the Mixay. It was clean, it was in a good location, it was cheap. However the rooms where basic and the air conditioning was not good. The staff remained friendly and helped us book transport and stored our bags. On the same street the bakery was very nice too.

Room Tip: Double rooms far larger than room for 4 and rooms on lower floors avoid very tight corridors.

my first stay in your mixay guesthouse, on 30th Nov 2011. They are offering free breakfast and tea or coffee. But when I come on year 2012, september 10th.

They are no breakfast provided more over the room rates increase.

I do not feel I will come back for 3rd visit in Vientiane, Laos.

We stayed in the 4 person dorm rooms. Air con and fans available in the rooms. There is a shared bathroom on each floor. The laundry service, although a little expensive, was quick with turnaround. The front desk manager provided great service and helped us purchase tickets from Vietanne to the border, then overnight train tickets to Bangkok. We paid a little higher for service fee, but it was worth not having the hassle of a border crossing. That said, the border crossing was surprisingly easy and efficient. If you have the time, it would be easy to do on your own.
