We enjoyed the place and the quiet room to relaxe. We passed a nice time! We like the location in the city. The service was amazing and the food excellent! The tuna sandwich was a good recharge after many days of eating rice.

Very friendly owner and staff. The place is 5 min away from the party places, so it is calm. But if you want the vangvieng party ppl: its just around the corner. This placee has been offering the best value so far in laos.

I have moved to Pan's place to save some money, as the room with shared bathroom only costs 30.000Kip there. The room itself is perfectly fine, big enough, with some furniture to put your stuff on. The shared bathroom is large and clean.
There is free WIFI and free water available and the staff working at the hostel is exceptional freindly and helpful.
The bed linen were stained, but clean, and the towels were new, clean and smelled fresh.
The locaiton of this place I found positive. It is not really in the Centre of Viang Vieng, but about 5-10 minutes walking away, which is nice, as there is less party noise and less drunk teenagers around.

What I did not like so much about the accommodation was the matrass of the bed. It hard, which is not a problem for me, but it was apparently very old and has some dips in it, so it was a big diifcult to sleep and the walls are very thin though, pretty much everything can be heard through the walls. Luckily when I was there the people in the surrounding rooms were very respectfuly and kept the noise at a minimum.

We went to Vang Vieng not expecting the greatest accomodation in the world so Pan's Place was fine for the two nights we stayed there.
The rooms were very basic, small with hard lumpy beds and even lumpier pillows. Having a few drinks most nights however meant this didn't bother us so much. We only had one plug in our room making it hard to charge things, as the fan also used the same plug so you had to sweat it out to charge anything. The bathrooms were basic with hot water but difficult to get the right temperature and one of the typical bathroom/shower/toilet combos.
The owner was helpful and humurous while giving a good run down of the hostel and where everything was which we often didn't get throughout our trip. Good run down of tubing.
There was also free water.
The restaurant was decent enough and good value for money.
Given what we paid we didn't expect anything more or less.

Pan's place was definitely one of the cheapest places I've ever stayed at. (approx. 5 Euro for a double) However, you get what you pay for. The room and bathroom could be a lot cleaner and all the interior felt a bit old/dirty. But you kind of expect that when you pay so little.
The owner was friendly nevertheless and organises tours and transport.

This guesthouse is an excellent place to stay for the cost. It is very cheap (~6$ for a double) and the host was extremely helpful and nice (doesnt pressure you into any tours and has good suggestions for daily activities). The food there costs a bit more than you can find in town but it is packed with meat and a good value. Rooms were very basic but clean, and definitely worth the money.

Booked 2 night's and ended up staying 8! Clean and roomy. Welcoming and relaxed vibe. All the info you need on vang vieng and getting to other parts of Laos. It's in the perfect location, walking distance to the centre of town but out just enough that it's a bit more quiet and relaxed.

Vang vieng is lovely place, I hope to return one day and when I do I will stay at Pan's Place again.
