“Great Hostel, Definitely Recommended!”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Chill, family-run hostel with clean and cheap rooms, great location, great atmosphere, what more can you ask for in a guesthouse? The Chilllao family will give you all the information you need to make your stay in Vang Vieng as enjoyable as possible, no worries. Would definitely recommend it to anyone coming to Vang Vieng, stay at Chilllao, you won't regret it!! Will definitely be coming back here when I make it back to Vang Vieng. Thanks for the good times guys!!

Stayed January 2013, traveled solo

Room Tip: Depending on your preference... the beds are either very, very soft or quite hard. i personally like...

I came to Laos not knowing the language and worrying if I can communicate. The guesthouse had very good and affordable amenities. The staff and people spoke excellent Lao and English which really helped point me in the right direction. A must stay place in my mind.

After Luang Prabang I came to laos and found an even cheaper place to stay! I would have felt terrible trying to barter as the price was already ultra-low, rooms were clean and the wifi as you can see is working great here in my room. Very close to the tubing shop ( i think its about 300 meters or so, 2 blocks) I will be back soon guys, perhaps in june when I get my next break from work.

Probably between average and very good - very OK. Average rooms, pretty good staff, good times nearby. Pretty good place to sleep if everything's all fuzzy anyways, like Vang Vieng was for me most of the time.

staying at chilao hotel now, I pay 40,000 kip for my room and have had no problems. I can't believe that in 2013 there is a place in the world where you can still get a private hotel room for under 4 quid! I want to recomend this hotel to anyone who visits Laos and I also want to thank terry for helping us with the kayaking tour. Seee you next time. Khob jai lai lai der ! ( means thank you)

Room Tip: Room 308 has a "cloud" bed for those of you who want bouncy

I stayed here a year ago and spent christmas with the chilllao family. It is the BEST (budget hotel) that I have seen in my 4 years of travelling. My room was clean and had wifi 3/4 bars on the second floor. out of Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos I would say that CHILLLAO IS the best "bang for the buck" as they say.... Meat stand Fruit Shake and Fruit stands are all right across the street along with Joint Development bank and a western union... as for the tubing, you can even have them pick you up here any time before 15:00... They also sorted out my bus ticket to the 4000 island which was an AMAZING place to see.

Room Tip: I checked a few before I chose mine..... they are allll basically the same but some beds are harder...
