Nice place with friendly staff. Good location. The room was small and very modest. Food in hostel was excellent. Totally worth for money.

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.

High recommend for Backpakkers ”
I traveled with my 17years old daughter. The hostel located very convenient place and staffs are so so nice! What was a wonderful experience there is they allowed for art on wall,my daughter love the art and she left one. Thank you for giving us such good experience. The room has only a bed,shower was great with hot water. If you're type of "city traveler" it wouldn't for your accommodation. But if you're true Backpakkers,the place is highly recommend!

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.

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.

One must stay at the Backpackers Garden Hostel”
the hostel staffs are all commendable for being very accomodating, friendly, polite and courteous
It was a breeze! The hostel staff just takes really good care of you. From the duration of your stay, how to go around the areas in Vientiane and even help with your travel bookings. I couldn't be more happier.

Nice rooms, friendly staff and good location
I had a nice stay at this hostel, the rooms were very clean and comfortable. Watch out with tuk tuk drivers that take you to another hostel with the same name (Sihome Backpackers Hostel), they are far away around 5 minutes walking. Staff was really helpful and they could arrange bus ticket for me to Luang Prabang for 180.000 kip with pick up.

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.

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!

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

Not a fan, but great if you need barebones accommodations ”
The room was bare, the carpet was old and dirty, the courtyard was a mess and they were painting the whole time so it smelled like paint fumes, the location was pretty close to stuff which was nice. If you have low expectations or you're used to backpacker whatever standards, it will meet your needs. Otherwise, look elsewhere. I won't be staying here again.
