A hostel with a wing of separate hotel type rooms. ”
The place is a whirlwind of young backpackers coming and going. I enjoy that atmosphere, some don't. I stayed in a private room, which was a little shop worn, but clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They are glad to give you tips on where to go, and will make bus and tour reservations for you. The swimming pool is an added plus, but it has no ladder. Be sure you are fit enough to hop/pull yourself out, whilst maintaining your dignity. A breakfast is included.

Good location but there are nicer guest houses”
The location of the guesthouse is great, very close to the night market. The room was okay but not very clean (stained bed sheets, dusty). The pool is nice however shared with the hostel. The staff was unfortunately not very friendly or helpful. You get breakfast which is included in the price, however we preferred to eat elsewhere. It's good value for money but there are nice guesthouses in Luang Prabang.

Ok hostel but not worth the money ”
We were really looking forward to staying here because we’d read good reviews but we paid £24 a night over New Years and were a little disappointed. Overall the hostel was fine, room was clean, shower was hot and towels were replaced daily. The staff were super friendly as well and the free breakfast was good. The main downfall was the pool was pretty dirty, there were bugs floating in it so it wasn’t really usable. We also had to move rooms because there was a mix up with their bookings only to discover just another couple went into the room we had so we were a bit annoyed we had to move for no reason. The only other issue was the WiFi never didn’t work at all. I’d recommend if it was cheaper!

Great 3 days”
We booked this guesthouse on return to Luang Prabang for location and pool. When we arrived it was extremely busy with young backpackers which for us older travellers was a bit of a worry. However, we had nothing to worry about, the staff were friendly and helpful. Giving fabulous advice about where to eat in town, how to travel to next destination. The owner and her family were also great and extremely friendly. The pool was fabulous to chill beside and we meet a lovely young man and had some great chats. The room was more than adequate and the shower was fabulous. Would recommend the private rooms to anyone.

The pool was crystal clear and a welcome relief from the heat. The room was cool, clean and quiet, especially considering the span of ages., and the family is delightful.

Forgot to pick me up at the airport, wifi did not work, dirty hippies everywhere. They did let me keep my bag at the desk and take a shower in the group showers after a waterfall trip onmy last day there after I checked out. But there has to be 50 better placed there for the same price I spent

Free breakfast & swimming pool”
This family-run hostel is in a good location, on a quiet side street few minutes walking distance from the night market. The bigger dorms have fans, the 4-pax dorms have AC (from 8pm to 10am). Rooms/bathrooms are not particularly fancy. Breakfast is included (super-fluffy banana pancakes!), and coffee/tea is available all day for free. The common areas have a nice social vibe and there's a small swimming pool (not fancy, but great to cool down in the Luang Prabang heath).

Just don't have high expectations”
We thought it would be 'different' but the room was very different. We stayed in what was supposed to be a double room but was a twin. Bed was comfortable enough. Shower was pathetic. Spurted out wrong way and shower curtain is useless with water covering the whole floor of the bathroom so if you need to go to the toilet after that you get wet feet. NO bathmats available. No daily cleaning but they did actually sweep and give us clean towels after 2 days. Pool is missing tiles right around the pool so the top edge is very sharp. No steps/ladder in or out of pool. First night ws ultra noisy but after that it was fine. Staff are friendly. Breakfast was pancakes or toast or scrambled or omelette or cornflakes with a banana with all. Drinks at the counter for a good price. Fridge was cold. Great location just 5 minutes from main street and markets. Pretty good really but was just really shocked on first sight and the shower and pool is a real let down. Oh and there is pool lounges unlike the picture.

I wanted to leave early but was unable to get a refund. I only stayed one night. I found it so hard to contact Agoda to cancel and get a refund.

Need to improve customer service”
We arrived early. They said that the check-in is still at 12nn. We left our bags in their place and tour around. Went back at 11:30 am. Asked if we can check in again, said it's at 12nn. They answer you in a passive way seems they are angry and agit as always. It seems that they don't care with their customers. When it was 11:50 am we asked again if we can check in already, then he said not yet. So okay, we really have to wait til 12nn despite the room is already available. The staff is just watching film on his computer. So when it was exactly 12nn, we told him that it's 12nn already... hence he was obliged to bring us to our room. We booked a deluxe room for two. Had a problem first with the outlets, not working. Wifi in our room is weak. Breakfast is so-so (pancake with banana). It has a pool that only 'works' from 11am-6pm (ugh).

Good spot.”
Good breakfast, great pool. Cheap beer. We had a private room for 3 of us although you could share in a dorm. The pool was a great retreat to cool down or just chill out and meet people. Great spot.

Best hostel in Luang Prabang”
I loved the social vibe of this hostel. I felt it was a good value for the price. Not the cleanest, but not too dirty. The breakfast was great and the common area was always filled with traveller willing to share info and rides. Having the pool to escape the heat was great as well. I stayed in a 4-person dorm and had no issues with noise, although I know others felt differently. Regardless, I highly recommend this hostel and would gladly stay again.

I wasn't supposed to live this hostel,and that ,when I got there I thought may be a quietly place, but at a night ,I slept early with my friend, until 12am my roommates,which were so many westerners came to in room ,and were speaking loudly, I think really disrespectful for someone shares same room,that was only thing I have to complained, so I suggest someone who is deciding to book this hostel, if you are party animals that suit for you definitely,if you are not ,probably you need to consider some other places

overrated ”
+nice breakfast, cheap beer, helpful staff and good location. Pool is good, bet there is no shadow, expect 1 umbrella. Open only between 11-18. Dorm rooms are too small, dimension of 4bedroom is actually like for 1 person. 6bedroom is like for 2. No AC during the day, it's impossible take a rest, there is hot like in hell, everywhere even in common area. WiFi isn't slow, it's super slow. This place is so overrated

Kind of cheap place good for meeting people, bad for sleeping and sanitation”
It only costs $6 to stay here and you do get free breakfast that is pretty decent (especially a banana pancakes!) and you will definitely meet a lot of travelers. Definitely seems to be a haven for young European travelers who want to party every night so if that's your thing you will enjoy the atmosphere. If you are wanting rest and a clean air conditioned place, you probably won't like what you find as it is loud until about 11pm with drunk roomies in the dorm coming in at all hours, air con only at night, and despite the cleaning that seems to happen almost daily, a bathrooms that feel gross with no hand soap whatsoever. Pretty close to the night market which is a plus. I would recommend finding somewhere else though, definitely better deals around if you look.
