Good backpacker friendliness. Easy walk to everywhere.”
Full-on welcome :-) Most helpful staff. Small adequate room with all facilities. Quiet sleep. Up stairs. Beware the slippery floor when exiting the shower.... I buggered my elbow in a nasty slip. Cold deep swimming pool. Free whisky during happy (2) hours. Good breakfast. Reasonable price tuk-tuk from bus station outside town. Vang Vieng is a full on adventure traveller town. A good place
Amazing and chill place ”
Was such a great place to stay. Bathroom facilities were fine, pool was clean and available. The manager (Chang) was also welcoming people to chillao and offering free whiskey to everyone during happy hour. I stayed in the 7 bed dorm and made some really good friends there. The workers and Chang also make it very easy to visit all the sights around Van vieng! Do recommend for future solo travelers!
Nice place with everything you could need. Rooms are basic but have everything you could need including a hot shower at a great price. The mattresses were very hard but not a problem. The breakfast is great with lots of choice and a buffet! Staff were also great - Tranh was really helpful and friendly to help us plan the best way to do everything while in Vang Vieng.
CONVENIENT LOCATION, ENGLISH SPEAKING STAFF”
We came from Luang Prabang when we arrived in Vang Vieng and to our surprise, the van (actually most of them) drop off right in front of Chillao Hostel. We personally chose this hostel because it was affordable and had a pool. What was a bit surprising however was that the pool was actually on the first floor, inside the gate. So swimming there actually is seen from the outside. Hahaha! The hostel was typical although I could personally say that it can make use of more tidying up as the kitchen is a bit exposed when you walk into the area for rooms. I guess the whole area is also undergoing construction because there were much debris of construction stuff and unfinished stairs/cement around. Getting around was easy because they also offered a lot of services for tourist activities. We in fact booked our van to Vientiane from them. Also, their staff are almost all foreigners too and speak English really well. Overall, it was a good place to stay in especially if you plan to party.
Great hostel, friendly staff, lovely city”
The Chillao offers everything you're looking for as backpacker: great location in a beautiful area, veey friendly staff, delicious breakfast included and the facilities are also good! Sometimes it might get noisy in the rooms if people are partying in the common area, but earplugs can easily solve that problem... :) I had an amazing time, stayed much longer than planned and would definitely come back! Highle recommendable hostel!
Party hostel in Vang Vieng”
When you are travelling to Vang Vieng to have the frat party of your life (including free "whiskey") and don't care about cleanliness at all, Chillao is the place to be. I for one found the toilets were unacceptably dirty and the general cleanliness level of the shared area, dorm room, showers, pool was also pretty low. The breakfast was good, though.
It felt like walking into utter insanity. The music was so loud it was difficult to check in, then the girl by the speaker turned it up. As soon as the free drinks start pouring this place takes party hostel to a whole new level, one which you must lower yourself to if you don't want to be extremely annoyed with the abundant idiocy. I'm not sure how many 'happy' shakes it would take. The room was cramped. The aluminum sheets making up lockers under the bed made thunderous noises when anyone climbed up to the top bunk. Locker itself was a joke, bent door and broken latch. The bathroom in the 4 bed dorm was gross, never seen such an awful toilet seat in my life. No way I'd shower there, though the place made me want to be able to was away the filth. The massive rows of shower and toilet stalls Behind check-in were ok, depending on which one. Like being at a festival hoping that the porta potty isn't too wrecked. Party starts back up as soon as breakfast starts, so sleeping in after being kept up is not an option. For a tiny bit more money you can check into one of the many guest rooms around, enjoy the bars and many other great things about Vang Vieng, and return to a place without dealing with people who drink like fish and/or have taken too many drugs to anything but take some more.
We stayed at Chillao for 4 nights and overall, we were satisfied with our stay. The location was perfect for us and the staff were helpful. Highlights were: Good breakfast, buffet style. Not many options but it will get you through the morning/afternoon. Free lao whiskey in the evening Swimming pool was great and the water pretty clean Awesome views from the balcony upstairs A few ideas for improvement: The sheets on our bed as well as towels were disgusting even for a cheap hostel. Free drinking water upon request only. Please invest in a refill station where travelers could top up their water bottles. Even if you charge us more because of it, it will be worth it.
Great hostel for a great price!”
We had a great time at chillao, Chang was a really helpful guy who always was there to assist with any requests we had! Lovely breakfast and nice free whiskey in the evenings!
The staff in Chillao is very accommodating and helpful. They tried to find us for our booked Hot Air Balloon activity. Location seems to be at the very center and probably one among the favorite meeting places of tourists. No elevator though. They helped us with our bus bookings too.
Cute hostel and very friendly staff”
Ms Nhung in hostel is very friendly. She helped us with many useful informations. Thanks so much. The hostel in center of vangvieng - very close with sakura bar - a active bar in here.
Thank you so much! our valuable guest ! Hope to see you !
Book it! You will like it for sure ;)”
Nice and simple hostel, everything what a traveler needs is here. Clean rooms and beds, not that soft, but I like. Clean toilets and also have hot water in shower, so good after rainy day. Oh, btw the breakfast is super cool! As I said before: simple but great! Don't know if it's noizy during a night, coz I was so tired and slept like a child :D
Thank you Oleksandr so much! It's wonderfull, cuz you like our hostel. We will try our best to make all guest sastified!
Good value for little money”
Hostel was good, good breakfast included, wifi worked well, beds are very hard to sleep on, facilities are okay but not always clean. I can recommend it if you're looking for a nice cheap hostel
Thank you for your review Your review is our motivative!
Amazing staff, amazing people!! Definitely a party hostel... so if u want to party and also relax i recommend you to pay for a private room (less noisy) than the share room in the first floor were the noise is really loud. Free whisky from 7 to 11 pm!! Just amazing!! Free breakfast also amazing!!
While the hostel was great itself, the room was quite uncomfortable. If you have issues sleeping on a rock hard bed, then I wouldn't recommend staying here. There was also no functioning AC in my room so sleeping wasn't great. But the location is great, the staff is professional and helpful, and breakfast was really good.
I'm stayed the hostel on one night. The staff was helpfully and responsive. Everything good, but have minus. This is creaking beds and moans neighbors drunks.
I like it here as it's really chill like the hostel name suggests. LOL! Recommended only if you do your own due deligence. You get what you pay for. Look after your valuables like a responsible adult would do. Small to medium sized lockers depending on what dorm room type you booked into. Breakfast is satisfactory. Reception and staff is friendly. I'm still around for few more nights if anyone is looking for a fun and laid back dude to hang out with. Just ask the reception for a dorm room where the beach bum from Singapore is staying. LOL!
More than expectation”
$5 per person i cant believe that it has a pool in front of the hostel haha. It s so lively and enjoyful with the others. Moreover, it has a breakfast for you !!
Nice hostel to stay lovely staff . More spaces to set and chill . I recommend that you won't regret (;
Simple and Clean ”
Basic and clean accommodation. I had a private room with a king size bed (could feel the springs unfortunately) and a wet room bathroom. It's a bit of a party hostel and can be a bit noisy but if you're not travelling with kids it's fine.
