    Cheap place, bed bugs but not worth it”

    Bed bugs!! Switch beds a couple of times but I could still see bed bugs crawling! When I told the guy working night shift that there were bed bugs (I showed him proof) and asked for a different bed, he claimed there was no more room. After talking to his boss, he lead me to a dorm room that was completely empty. Toilet always having issues, and the dorm rooms had a stinky smell. Staff weren't very friendly and helpful. Otherwise, it's a cheap place and for what you pay you can't expect much. Though, there are other places for similar price that are better. Breakfast was ok, it had a nice selection to chose from. Nice location, but I wouldn't recommend this place.

    Above average”

    You get what you pay for and for £7 for a double room it could be a lot worse. The reviews explain this place to be awful but it’s really not that bad. The free breakfast is some of the best we’ve had, the bed is a little hard and the bathroom is in need of an upgrade but other than that it was perfectly fine!

    Fair but please fix toilet and staff’s attitude.”

    The place was good for the value. Loved the free breakfast and clean bed. My complain is that the bathroom is broken so walked in to the toilet with nasty things on it because people have a hard time flushing it and also the staff could be a notch or 5x nicer. A smile really wouldn’t hurt.

    zero customer service”

    they definitely don’t remember that they need the costumers to keep with their business. the staff was very rude with us, all the time. looked like they didn’t want to be working there and were lazy about giving answers. also the matress, at least in the private room, was really hard, i even looked to see if it was a matress or a piece of wood with a blanket on the top, because that is what it felt to be. also, the pictures are definetly not like reality. breakfest is included but was better if wasn’t. they say they have wifi but only works in the garage not in the rooms. and to complete, if you are planning to share a room, you will also share a very durty bathroom where the toilet leeks and you need to go without your shoes. i think they could alow shoes at least in the bathroom, for hygienic precausions.

    Cheapest place in Luang Prabang”

    This is the cheapest place I could find in Luang Prabang city centre. It's around 5 min walk to night market and other tourist spots. The hostel in general is clean, still the toilet and shower room can be improved. The staffs are super helpful, he helped with calling the airlines to change my flight date and finding my friend's lost and delivering it to another person to bring it to Vang Vieng for us. The breakfast here is also big plus as the menu is diversed and the taste is good.

    I arrived quite early for check in and unfortunately wasn’t greatest by the happiest of staff. The hostel was in a great location, breakfast was great and you can book everything at the hostel for a very cheaper price (cheaper than most places in town). The rooms were clean, but unfortunately the beds were very hard !

    Average but good location ”

    The location is great and the receptionists are great. But the girls serving breakfast behaved like throwing the plate in front of you. No smiles or any words. I didn't have wifi connection in my room so I used to stay in the lobby. Then one evening a lady was at the reception requesting money back coz she didn't have wifi connection in her room and asked to call the police. Then the receptionist told her she would have to spend the night in the police station if the police come. I was speechless!!

    Typical hostel yet a great location”

    It was a typical hostel with the regular breakfast meal included in the already cheap accommodation, which I got surprised. And as common as it is, it's no surprise that it's filthy and wi-fi not reliable. The staff can barely speak English and not so accommodating.

    Great hostel, with amazing breakfast!”

    I chose to stay at this hostel after already staying in Luang Prabang for two days. And this hostel was definitely better! It was clean and the staff is always ready to help and give useful tips. As a hostel i think it is a bit overpriced, but breakfast is included and delicious which makes me feel okay with spending those two extra bucks than what I normally would do on hostels. The atmosphere is also good, it's very easy to meet people at both breakfast and in the evenings.

    Nice and silent place near the river”

    The place had a pool table and a big chilling area to meet the others from the hostel. The prices for beer and shakes were kept low and the staff was quite helpful in pointing me out cheap bike and scooter rentals :) they also sell bus tickets on the minimum price ( I checked 7-8 more places). So just the quality of the pancakes for breakfast each day differed but this was ok. I had a very nice time in total!

    Unpleasant staff, lack of atmosphere”

    It's got potential but unfortunately the staff clearly are annoyed by the guests, resulting in no atmosphere no music and they wouldn't even allow simple kind favours like keeping a bottle of Coke cool in the fridge for us. I believe this is the cheapest hostel in town and we only stopped for one night, keep it at that and nothing more

    This backpackers is in a great location, very close to Joma bakery, very short walk to night market, restaurants/bars and river. Gate is locked at 10pm which is good for security, they are happy to open for you if you come back late at night. Staff were very kind to call our transport to vang vieng that was running late. Breakfast is simple but nice. Great choice for backpackers and couples.
