Excellent”

Faraway suits was perfect for my daughter & I's 3 nights in Vang Vieng. We got a good price on Agoda & thought we'd treat ourself to a slightly pricey place than we'd been staying perviously. When we first arrived & realised there was still building work in progress my heart sank thinking it would be very noisy. We were pleasantly suprised, it wasn't noisy at all. Our room was lovely & spacious with a very comfortable bed, great pillows & felt clean & fresh. Our corner room had lots of light & great views of the incredible mountains & if you're an early riser you get a lovely sunrise view of the city waking up. I loved watching the Monks heading to the Wat (temple) then all the children cycling around the corner & down the road to school. Far & her staff were all very friendly & helpful & in a few months when all the building work is finished & the pool is ready it will be even better. I recommend Faraway Suits & will definitely return when I'm back in Vang Vieng. Thanks Far :)

Was staying for 3 nights during my backpacking in Laos, the place is still under construction, but the room was already completed. The English-speaking reception is no 24 hours, and the room cannot be locked. The locker inside the room is huge. The view from the rooftop is amazing! You can book tours and transport there as well (common in Vang Vieng).

Ideal for Solo Travelers”

Faraway is a modern addition to the Vang Vieng circuit, without sacrificing atmosphere. The pool area is nice for small or large groups, and is likewise very well-maintained. Breakfast is average, but is on par with what you are paying. Location is just off the main strip, but 'far enough away' to enjoy some peace and quiet. Staff are friendly, if not completely attentive.

We had a wonderful stay at Faraway Suites. We been living in Southeast Asia for a few years now and the bed & pillows were among the most comfortable we've come across in our travels here. Our room had a great view and everything was very clean. The breakfast was pretty standard. The staff was friendly and the pool area was really nice. The location was good, just took a few minutes to walk to most of the restaurants & cafes in town. We'll definitely be staying here again!

Very Relaxing Stay”

The Faraway is a newly constructed hostel that was designed to cater to backpackers. The rooms are large, air-conditioned with comfortable beds. The bathrooms are great as well. The food at the on-site restaurant is very good, although, breakfasts are not included in most room prices. The pool is nice and refreshing. A great place to cool down or relax and soak up some sun. Every inch of the hostel is krpt impeccably clean. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful in making sure guest needs are met. And while it’s located within walking distance of many popular attractions, tours, bicycles and motorbikes can be arranged on-site. So, while it’s tempting to chill right there, there are lots of great things to do in the area.

Good Hotel but very very noisy Temple close by! ”

First two nights spent here were good - rooms are average size, with good powerful shower. Room has only got a bed and not much else but it’s functional. Location is good to get to and from restaurants, activity sites etc. Hotel has plenty of activities which can be arranged! Staff were all friendly! Breakfast wasn’t bad for price paid. Cons: - No safe lock in the room and you need it when you’re out all day doing activities. -Hotel only provide 1 bottle of water on arrival and then you have to pay for refills. -When we asked to do laundry they said it wouldn’t be done before we left so that’s more than 24hours! Finally: from 7am 31/12 to the point where we were leaving at 11:30am 1/1 there was some sort of prayer going on at the temple nearby which went on ALL day and ALL night (to make matters worse over a microphone) and then really loud music! We got sick and tired of hearing it and very little sleep! So just be wary of this when you think it’s the perfect location!

Dear guest, I thank you for review. During your stay during new year. It was indeed a little noisy at the temple there was a gathering at the temple to thank Buddha for all the good of the past year. And to celebrate and wish good fortune for the new year. I apologise if this has caused a sleepless night. This is certainly not a regular occurrence!

A peaceful place”

I stayed in dorm room. The place was newly built, and completed, no more construction work as said in other reviews. I love for its peaceful atmosphere, no noise, no party, nice vibe, nice pool to see. Me too had seen no one use the pool. The dorm was a bit warm compared to weather outside which was colder at night. Upper bed had no curtain. There's not enough locker due to someone over use it or lock it forever and gone, but not really a problem. Everything else and overall was excellent. Highly recommended while it is still in good condition.

I stayed here instead of the infamous Nana’s and was SO glad I did. The pool here was lovely, comfortable and clean (the water at Nana’s wasn’t even see through 😟). The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms & showers were spacious & clean, and most importantly, the staff was responsive and helpful. I left clothes hanging up in the room when I left for Vientiane and, after contacting their Facebook, the employees were quick to put myself aside for a friend to pick up! The price here is very reasonable as well. I would definitely recommend staying here. It was nice to go tubing with the partners, but return to a much more comfortable hostel.

Central location, still a work in progress”

When they say it’s still a building site, they really mean it! However the floor that was open was comfortable and the dorm clean. The sink/bathroom area could have been kept a little cleaner. Staff were not as friendly as I had anticipated from the emails I got before arriving, but I think the guy that checked me in was just a volunteer. There is no water or tea/coffee provided. Location is very central and the views from the room are incredible. Overall I would stay again, this place will be beautiful when finished.

A work in progress”

So this place is still under construction and they are renting out rooms while the rest of the building is being completed. The staff is very nice and somewhat helpful. The beds are very comfy and they changed the linens while I was there. The bathrooms and showers were kept very clean. Unfortunately, not all of the beds have privacy curtains and none are equipped with reading lights. I found this somewhat annoying as I was trying to get packed at night, but had to do it in the dark since the lights were already out. The aircon is turned off in the morning, so it gets rather hot after 8 am. There is no place to sit other than in the dorm and there is no tea, coffee or even water - so you have to leave for every little thing. For the price it was decent, and I would recommend it if you are cool with the bare minimum.

Awesome swimming pool and jacuzzi”

Hostel is located kind of at the edge of town, but since the entirety of the town is of walking distance, it doesn’t really matters. The swimming pool is a very big plus point, you can just take a dip after a long day of exploring. Shower and toilet are separated, very very big shower room! The hand basin is conveniently located next to the shower and toilet. Strong aircon in the room, steady and comfy bed and blanket. You can book tours and rent scooter with the receptionist. The only con would be it’s not really a social hostel, so don’t really have chance to make new friends. But if you like quiet and peace, it’s perfect!

Great Owner; Work in Progress”

I really enjoyed how new and clean the dorm room was, and how wonderful and helpful Far was in assisting me and answering all my questions. However, the bathroom facilities could have been kept cleaner, and it was hard when the rest of the staff didn’t speak any english. The laundry didn’t come back smelling so nice either. However, I would still recommend this hostel, and I’m excited to see what the place will look like when it is completed.
