Great locations, amazing staff”

I had such an unexpectedly amazing time in Vientiane! The staff here were so accommodating and helpful - they printed my Vietnam visa for me and let me shower after checkout. This is one of the least expensive hostels around and undoubtedly a bargain for what you get. However, I will say that the beds were not comfortable, so if this is a high priority, it might be an issue for you. The location was PERFECT because you’re right in between the two night markets, close to some lovely cafes, and one of the best Indian restaurants in Laos 😍 (Jamil Zahid Punjabi restaurant). I would definitely come back again!

The staff are really kind and helpful, and the place offers everything you need to get into, out of, and around Vientiane -- bicycle rental, travel planning, nice cafe on first floor, clean and quiet dorms, etc. And once again, the staff are really helpful with anything you need, making you feel right at home and making your life easy.

This is a nice hostel. The beds are clean and have curtains for privacy. They are set up like pods, with their own plug and light. Each room has its own bathroom, so you are only sharing with your bunk mates. They also have a place to lock valuables. It’s a good value.

+ clean + great breakfast / cafe + great staff + well organised common area and info - sometimes it was hard to get hold of anyone at reception as no one was there! Maybe they are like this because it is low season??... - the female dorm was quite small and barely anywhere to put your stuff considering the amount of beds

Nice hostel in a great area. The staff do not speak much English and so it was a little difficult at times too speak. I rented a bike for a small amount so I could access the city, very close too the night market. Good community area and they have computers you can use. Blanket is provided in a nice case with shampoo too :)

I love the Cafe very much. food is delicious and reasonable price, booking with breakfast is definitely worth it. Wifi connection is good both Cafe and room with a different network. staff is friendly and nice. But is just not my day when I check-in, I request for lower bunk and they assign the bed most near to the door. the AC is end of the room so my bed is very hot all the time even middle of the night especially some of the roommates didn't close the door when they in and out. I wake a few time at night due to the heat. Found a bedbug on the bed 1st night and 2 cockroach in the toilet on the 2nd day. It really ruins my day after a heated night.

I stayed in female dorm. The space was limited, and bed was more like tatami mat. Air conditioning was minimum, and I was hot all the time. Staffs were nice. The location is little far from shops and restaurants if you don’t like to walk. It was convenient for me since air port shuttle run right in front of the hostel.
