“A place to get your head down”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Fair price on rooms fresh towels and drinking water everyday. Wifi ok, bathrooms cleaned regularly. Close to riverside and night market. Would stay again although not a lot to do in Vientiane besides visa runs from Thailand.

We arrived early and at 12 were given the key to check in but the room hadn't been made up so we had to wait a bit longer. The bathroom was really bad - the sink nearly collapsed on me so if you stay check the bathroom so you are safe! The free water is a nice touch.

The rooms are not really clean, it's noisy and the staff is quite indifferent. The shared bathrooms were disgusting. For the same price, you can find much better in the area. It's quite overpriced for the value. We only stayed one night and that was enough for us.

This place is worth staying in for the soft beds alone. After sleeping on springy and hard mattresses all over SE Asia, these beds were amazing. It was mostly clean, the staff were helpful and the wifi worked most of the time. It was 35,000 for a dorm bed, much more if you want a private en suite room. Near some good bakeries, the river and night market.

The rooms are quite spacious and the prices were ok. It was very clean and the mattresses were comfy. They also had good wifi. Breakfast is lousy. You get two pieces of untoasted toast and a tea bag or coffee powder When I treid to get some tea, the water was cold, but I didnt want to wait half an hour. There are nice breakfast options in town, so it didnt really matter.

Not enough bathroom / toilet como's so waited 30 mins one morning for a shower. Seemed over priced. The daily water provided is boiling hot as its left in the hot rooms. You get two slices of bread in the morning which isn't worth it. The service wasn't great. You could find better.

We decided to stay at Mixay Guesthouse on our Arrival at Vientiane. It was a very cheap hostel for us. The room was okay, the bathroom also. But we were promised, that we have wifi on our room, but it wasn't. Our Electricity didn't worked. And we had to use a cold shower.
Me and my boyfriend went out for some drinks and when we came back our door was opened, but we where sure that we closed it. Nothing has been stolen, but its the thing how the hotel staff react.
We told them and it didn't intressted him.
So we wanted another room, because we didnt felt save in this one. It wasn't possible, so we decided to check out and want our money back. (We had that room, for two hours) We didn't get anything back. The just laughed at us and said so just search for another hostel. So that was our new plan. But at the End they gave us half of the price.
We wouldnt recommend this hostel to anyone.

Room Tip: Just go to the hostel straight ahed. It's a little more expensive but it's much better and f...
