    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.

    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.

    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!

    Staff, food and price

    We were a group of 3 and we just needed an overnight stay so we picked this dorm. The dorm is simple and there was free breakfast. The 8 persons dorm with bunk beds was clean and the facilities were not too bad. However, location is not as convenient as it is hidden in one of the alleys and to get to town centre, a bicycle would be required. Overall, not too bad for an overnight.

    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.

The travel agency was called DK Travels. Their overnight bus was old and very uncomfortable .
