“Great place for solo travellers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2010

Stayed here in November. Was at first a bit dismayed as they had somehow managed to lose my booking, but they put me up in a bed in the hall for the first night!! The hostel is great though, friendly staff, organises lots of cool activities and a nice communal area which is great for meeting other travellers

Tis a bit pricy for a hostel, but IMO its a price worth paying if you're travelling solo. maybe not if you're with other people though...

Great place to stay in Luang Prabang - free breakfast in morning. Really relaxed atmosphere in an old French colonial house. Maybe a bit more expensive than other backpacker places in the area but definitely worth it and while I was there some people moved to here as the other places weren't great.

They organised trips to the waterfalls and the bus to Vang Vieng. Friendly staff and we helped cut down a coconut tree in the garden behind the building. Was sad to leave!!
