SpicyLaos was probably one of the most wackiest places I have ever stayed at. It's not really a hostel in terms of a place to stay, it's more somewhere to drink, party and be hungover at- so not the best if you want a decently clean room. The staff are extremely friendly, joining in on the campfire sing-a-longs. It feels more like a gap year camp than anything else.
In terms of the room, the women's dorm had three beds and a bathroom. It wasn't regularly cleaned or cleaned at all in fact, and insects seemed to make their way through the ventilator shaft and end up dissected all over the beds. So hygiene is seriously lacking here.
But they have their own Tuk tuk that can take viisitors on tours on a daily basis, their English is impeccable and their general facilities are very helpful aka laundry, free internet access, drinks and free breakfast. I would definitely recommend this for a young backpacker/ gap year budget traveller who just wants to enjoy the company, rather than the comfort.
