This was the absolute WORST place I stayed on my ENTIRE 40 day trek through Laos, Thailand and Cambodia. We went with a tour group; otherwise I never would have picked this place. From the outside it looks acceptable. However my first night sleeping here my roommate woke me up saying she just saw rats running past her bed. I thought she was probably imagining it but went to turn on the light to investigate only to hear squeaking. The rats ran back through the shower drain (which is apparently where they came from). We had left the bathroom door open because it couldn't properly close and after this incident we figured out a way to use an elastic band to keep it shut. Staff hardly spoke English and didn't seem to care about rats in rooms. Fast forward a few days and my roommate was alone in our room while I was on the beach. She frantically starts to text me saying that a HUGE rat just crawled out of my bag. After running to the front desk in a panic asking for help (no one spoke English and therefore didn't help) she enlisted the help of a Tuk Tuk driver. They used a broom to sweep it towards the bathroom drain but it was too big to fit through. Eventually they swept it out of the front door instead. This was terrifying to us because obviously it hadn't gotten into our room the same way as the other rats so HOW exactly did it get in there? Once again the staff didn't seem to care about our problem. We ended up moving to the Rockstar Inn next door because there was no way we wanted to continue our stay at Mien Mien. To me a rat problem seems like something that is completely unacceptable and the staff's lack of concern was one of the most frustrating experiences of my trip. If you want to see what a few nights in hell feels like stay at the Mien Mien.
