We had a confirmed booking at the Lakhangthong Boutique Hotel down the street, Confirmed by Hostelz.com. We were trundled to this Backpackers Hostel, which turned out to be OK, clean, but noisy.
The Vietnamese owner of the Lakhangthong Boutique Hotel also owns this hotel, (he says) and we were moved here because he said that his hotel, up the sreet "is very expensive" and we only booked a "cheaper place", which was this Backpacker Hostel. This was not the truth. He has a scam going, if you book the cheaper room at the Boutique, he moves you down to the Backpackers Hostel, apparently.
The breakfast at the Hostel was good, the rooms were clean, the water was hot and the location was OK. Just disappointing. The people here don't speak Lao, which we do. They are Vietnamese as well. The young man at the desk was helpful but the young lady there was usually in the bed by the desk with a huge quilt over her and couldn't be roused. Keep a sense of humor! You have to to keep on travelling!
