Ex-pat in Thailand”
This was my second time staying at this Hostel. Polite friendly staff in a good location with retaurants and shops around the corner. Great staff that takes care of all your needs and they even got up early to give me a ride to the Embassy for a new visa for a cheap price. Would definitely recomend this place to others and will return again on my next visit.

Good choice”
It's a pretty decent place to stay. I've been in the female dorm aka. "The Queens Room" and everything was clean and you have your own power socket and a lamp. Air-conditioning works but is not very strong. 5-10 Minute walk into the city. The staff is friendly but the one woman can't speak any English (not her fault however a little bit annoying). For Breakfast there is a choice between different toast/jam/egg combinations and pancakes with jam. I would definitely stay here again, especially since the price is the best you can probably find here.

Good Hostel ”
The rooms were cozy with comfortable beds and aircon. For breakfast there were several options, and the ones we tried have been tasty. The bathrooms has not been clean all the time, but this is what you have to expect in shared bathrooms. Staff was nice.

Too many mosquitos!”
Booked a standard double room with private bathroom. Got eaten alive by Mosquitos as there were big gaps around the door (when I checked, other rooms had the same). The bed was rock hard and uncomfortable. Could have been cleaner -dead mosquitos squished over the walls where previous guests had clearly had the same problem as us. We didn't have breakfast included so cannot comment on that. There seems to be a social area outside. Wouldn't recommend staying here.

Quite central but uncomfortable to stay in”
We booked a single room but was given a 4-bed dorm all to ourselves. It felt like we were in jail with the cement flooring and rock hard beds. Neither of us had a good sleep the entire night. They had to showers and two toilets, both unisex. Quite uncomfortable really. Wouldn't recommend unless you're on a tight budget.

Nice vibe and good location”
Lots of social spaces which makes for a chilled atmosphere where it's easy to get talking to people. Big plus for a good, free breakfast! It's in walking distance of the night market and pretty much everywhere else, as Vientiane is quite small. The only downside was that our beds were really hard.

This guest house is run by Vietnamese. They are helpful and friendly. The room facility is quite normal and worth the cheap price. If your budget is tight and just need a place to stay in Vientiane, I recommend you this place.

Private (prison cell) room ”
Generally a nice enough place, but the twin room are like a prison cell. Concrete beds with an incredibly hard mattress... Also a serious issue with mosquitoes in the room, which were mainly living behind the pillows. Not the greatest

Not too happy with it”
Had a good outdoor sitting area. Rooms too small. Bathrooms not too clean. Booked tickets to 4000 islands from them. The staff did not know any details about the journey. The travel agency was called DK Travels. Their overnight bus was old and very uncomfortable . The driver of connecting bus to Ban Nakasang kept stopping for hours on the way and we reached by 12 noon instead of 10am as stated by the travel agency!

We book we arrived and even if there is written fast check in the girl at the reception made us wait one hour . She cannot handle the reservation trough agoda and make us wait sieving and welcoming other guests . The room they give us was not the one we booked was tiny smell bad air and got no any amenities . We were not able to sleep the last night because of some drunk guests making noise. One had the face full of blood because some one punch him. There was another who try to help him but was completely drunk . I woke up to see what was going on and there was the same girl at the reception who did not handle the situation at least try not to disturb the other guest .. very bad
