Mixok Guesthouse not Mixok Inn

Great laundry service, close to everything, decent hot water
When staying at this guesthouse do not get it confused with the Mixok Inn on the corner. They are not the same even though the breakfast offered is provided by the Mixok Inn. Everything with this place was fine until we tried to get our breakfast on the day we left. The room was clean, the hot water was decent, and the staff was friendly. On the day we left though, we tried to get the promised breakfast, but apparently, contrary to the belief of the guesthouse (they think it's 7 AM), Mixok Inn does not start serving breakfast until 7:30 AM. If you have an early morning bus, and you have already paid for your breakfast with your booking, you will not be able to get it or any money back. Otherwise, this is a decent place to stay.

there were beds

beds, location, baguettes with breakfast
i was probably too hungover for both nights we stayed but it was mostly clean and the beds were quite sleepable. location is good for trekking around boring Vientiane, though I'd skip it all together if I were you and head straight for the north (nong khiaw - oh my heart). don't, DEAR GOD DONT book the overnight bus to Hanoi with them. I mean, is likely that they are all the same but we did the "better" bus and were still shoved in the back in broken seats next to the over flowing toilet, like white cattle. just fly. it's not worth the "adventure" or the agony.

Our room was filthy, the bathroom smelled, they did not clean the room and you had to ask for clean towels (we stayed for 4 nights). I think you can get a better room in Vientiane for the same money! Would certainly not stay here again!!

Not so good

First impressions weren't brilliant, the night receptionist was surly and not very helpful, barely looking up from his phone to give us our key. The day staff were fine. The room was at the front but we didn't find it too noisy. WiFi worked in the room, just a shame that the bathroom (and so the room) stank of sewerage. There were no other rooms available so we bought air freshener and that helped.

good choice

excellent location in the citycenter. vientiane does not offer so much but it's nice to chill out in one of the bars or stroll in the nigh market, the hotel is close to lao kitchen restaurant where you MUST order the duck laab , one of my favourite dishes of SEA ah the only possible problem is that does not have a lift and there are 4+ floors, for me was fine

2 nights at Mixok Guesthouse

Value for money, location, comfy bed
We stayed two nights while we sorted our Thai visa out. It is fair to say that you get what you pay for... Very cheap price equals not great conditions. This said, the location is great, just minutes walk distance to lots of cafés, bars, restaurants and the night market. Breakfast was included in the price and although limited it was good size and decent quality with an a la carte selection of egg base dishes: omelette, or fried eggs, or scrambled eggs, or pancakes, plus banana and bread with butter and tea/coffee. Also had a couple of local dishes like rice and soup. The bed is very comfortable and the room has air con and a fan so we had a very good night sleep. There are a few downsides, firstly there is no elevator and our room was on the third floor, not ideal! Also, if you are very bothered about cleanliness, avoid this place! Towels were dirty and the toilet is quite something... Technically there is no shower space, is basically a shower cap with no water pressure next to the toilet very Asian style but with no space almost to move so it is easier to sit down on the toilet and take the shower there. All in all this is a value for money guesthouse in a great location, ideal for those traveller on a budget that need a bed to sleep for a couple of nights, I would not stay any longer than that and probably I would not stay there again. Down the road there are nicer backpackers hostels at a similar price and better conditions as a friend of us was staying there.
