good cheap option ”
nothing special, but good for 2 nights in VV. i had a private room - there was a bit of a weird smell, it didn't have any windows, and the bathroom could have been a little cleaner. that said, i slept better here than any other place in SE Asia so far. the bed was very comfortable and the AC/fan was perfect. Plus having no windows meant it stayed nice and dark and cool :) breakfast is OK, had the scrambled eggs and fruit both days. wasn't super social hostel, but if you want something cheap and quiet, this is a good option. staff was not very friendly, the guy checking me in barely spoke and just opened the door to my room and disappeared. minimal speaking when booking my bus ticket for me as well.

Good value”
Army Barracks was a great stay for us -- we stayed in a private/double room and the bed was comfortable, shower was hot, and the air-conditioning was strong! The sheets were a strange material...somewhat vinyl feeling...but for a short stay it was no problem. Good location in the city, a short walk to everything.

Great value for money for a budget backpacker”
For only £9 for a double room per night, this room was great value for money. Although basic, it included air con, a balcony and free breakfast. The room is clean and the bed is super comfy, almost like memory foam. The location is great, right in the centre of the town. Would recommend as a low budget hostel.

Clean And Tidy”
Nice place, Good location. Clean ,tidy with friendly staff. Breakfast was good with a few different choices. Room was good with hot water, wifi, comfy bed. I had a room on the street frontage with small private balcony. Tours, buses, etc are available onsite but did mine through an outside agency. Only small problem with this hostel is it's location on Google Maps. It is in the wrong place. It's real location is a bit further down from Nana Backpackers, but most bus, tuk tuk drivers seem to know it. I can certainly recommend and would stay here again.

Authentic clean mellow hostel”
I stayed 9 days at Army Barracks. The hosts are very kind and authentic. Over time they made me feel appart of the family. Comfortable beds. nice breakfast with 6 choice to varry. hottest shower i had in SE Asia. Free whisky for the party people! it is located about 10-15 min walk from the madness which if you want a more chill laydback vibe is grreat. not a party hostel but good vibes at night to get started. i was sad to leave and recommend this hostel great price/quality ratio! A+

Good location without being right in the noise. Friendly staff. Comfortable. Great value for money booked in advance. Decor may not be to everybody’s taste!! The room window was left open during the day by cleaners so security is questionable. Can lock small valuables away though it is in a potentially removeable box.

Best hostel? ”
Army barracks is pretty good. The army theme is limited to camo print bedsheets which I found amusing. Rooms arn’t as busy as other hostels so more chance to sleep. Really clean, fair breakfast. Coffee always runs out but you cant have everything. If looking for a hostel in VV which isn’t a wild youth club, this is the one.

Just Perfect”
I tried to find some bad things on that Guesthouse, but could not really. Everything is perfectly fine there, starting from its lovely and so helpfull staff. Rooms à shared toilets/bathrooms are clean and generally OK, with hot and good showers & quiet OK beds (hard to ask for more in a dorm). The breakfast is just AWESOME. I did not test the restaurant because prefer to eat outside, but they also left me prepare my own dinners some times. Really the best place to stay in Vang Vieng.

Basic but cheap (plus free whisky)”
Rooms were an okay size with large windows and a small balcony however they were incredibly basic. The bedding was horrible, very old and bobbly and felt awful against your skin. Bathroom was a typical wet room and because it was small, everything else got soaked - the plug was full of hair so it turned into a pool! No housekeeping offered, however we didn’t stay for long so that wasn’t a problem for us. Rooms were clean on check in. Overall okay for the price, breakfast was adequate but nothing special and location was a bit out from the main area but this meant it was quiet. Boyfriend was happy thanks to the free whisky! Also offers cheap laundry service!

The receptionist was really helpful and smiles a lot, everytime. Location is a bit far from the other bars which means place is quiet at night. Breakfast was ok. The noodle shop across the hostel is good though. Nearby buggy car rental too.

Great place to stay - fantastic food.”
This is a new place in Town, only open for a couple of months but I highly recommend it. When we checked in we asked for a different room as our room had no window (room was fine though) Tommy happily changed our room to a much nicer one with balcony for no extra cost. The food here is EXCELLENT, the best we have had in Laos. The friendly family who ru the place are from Vietnam and there are lots of Laos, Vietnam and western food options at good value. Breakfast is delicious too. They booked our bus tickets for onward travel with no problem. I would stay here again for sure.

Staff can't communicate. Got over charged”
The nice thing about this hotel was clean and has breakfast. But all the staff speak very little English and was hard to communicate. It seemed like they were all too young and wasn't trained enough. They were there to do basic jobs that they were told to do and not motivated at all. I paid with credit card but mashine wasn't working very well so the staff swiped millon times. Now I have to contact to my credit card company to cansel the payment. They didn't even know how to use the mashine... I think there are so many better ones than this hostel.

not clean”
The room smelled like mold, had a big puddle of water under the bed, and we found a baby bed bug on the mattress and some crawling up the wall. Left immediatly and stayed in a much better located and cleaner guesthouse (Maylay- highly recommend!). The manager was really nice about it and gave us a full refund but I would check the beds with a fine toothed comb before staying here.

Very good”
Very basic, you get what you paid for. Booking tours was done efficiently for me. Big common space area to chill and eat. Appreciated the breakfast. In the dorm room, the beds are a bit too close together but there were no bunks so atleast you're your own. The only downside was that the water got shut down for us for a while. No showers, toilets, sink, etc. There were a lot of angry people but I felt bad for the staff who were trying their best to deal with it. I didn't spend that much time at the hostel anyway being out and about.

About the hostel, it is very simple but according to the price you pay. Beds are old but breakfast is very good! Nice atmosphere
