        Good location and at a good price”

        Price, air-con

        the mixok guesthouse is a comfortable enough place in the centre of vientiane. the exterior looks a bit tired and could use a lick of paint, but the interior is fine. the room is a bit spartan, but the air-con works well, the bathroom is clean, the shower has hot water, and the toilet flushes well. the bed was a bit soft, but i'm used to rock-hard mattresses, so maybe for others the mattress would be ok. the tv had an eclectic choice of channels ranging from thai tv, lao programmes, espn in english, chinese stations, aussie news, and the most entertaining nightly news from north korea. the hotel apparently closes their doors at 23:00 so late night revellers may be a bit put off. overall i'd recommend the mixok guesthouse to anyone who needs a comfortable place at a low rate.

        Centrally located, clean, good English speaking staff

        A great place to stay if you are passing through Vientiane. A little confusing on arrival as there is a Mixok Inn and a Mixok Guesthouse 5 doors away from each other. They are both owned BH the same person though so one will advise which one you are staying at. Both include breakfast but you have to walk to the larger of the two to have it which is no issue as its so close. The rooms are clean and feel safe. The tuk tuk from the main bus station drops you in the centre which is just over the road from the hostel which is great or just ask for Mixok and most drivers will know where it is in Mixay Village.

        Good Value For Vientiane ”

        Cable tv, wifi and A/C

        I booked this guest house on Agoda and paid for a double room. I've stayed in numerous hotels and guesthouses over the years and the standards are low and bad value for the money you pay. Mixok is a newer building than most of the run down derelict accommodation in this area of town. The rooms are new and decent and unusually for Vientiane budget hotels everything works. Other positives are an efficient A/C unit, cable TV with a good choice of channels and the hotel has a good CCTV system for security. I was given room I found noisy as it was near the road. I requested to change to a quieter room and was given a room on the third floor away from the room which I really appreciated. All told I don't know a better place to stay in Vientiane in this price bracket. Breakfast is served at the Mixok Inn a few doors away from 7-10am. It's very simple, a couple of eggs and a baguette with jam and self serve coffee and tea, but its enough to get you started in the morning.They have no association with Mixok, their annoying presence is just incidental. Mixok is a decent place by Vientiane standards and I would stay there again without hesitation.

        Decent, well-located hotel”

        Location, Internet speed, Great aircon

        This was a good comfy room with great aircon and great Internet. The breakfast was supplied by a sister hotel about 200m down the road (despite the guy who checked me in telling me it was next door). The food was ok, basic but decent quality. Given what I'd paid elsewhere in the country Mixok seemed over priced .... however I guess Vientiane is the capital so it must be expected. I ended up staying an extra night in Vientiane (due to missing the bus out!) but I went for a different hotel (Bayern Guesthouse) which was much nicer and cheaper.

        Location

        If you travel to Laos to stay in the hotel then don´t go to Mixok Guesthouse, however, if you just want a cheap place to relax after all the walking this would probably be the place in Viantiane. It is right in the centre of the city, the rooms have a bathroom with hot water (not to strong though), tv with sat, air con... in general really good for the cost 11 to 13 euros. Btw, the breakfast is included (in its twin hotel 10 metres away), it is basic but enough to start the day.

The location of this guesthouse is very near to night market and surrounding with a lot of restaurants. The good thing is the room rate was included breakfast and it served in mixok inn(new building), we still able to had our breakfast (serve 7AM onward) before heading to airport.

        Mixok Guesthouse not Mixok Inn”

        Great laundry service, close to everything, decent hot water

        When staying at this guesthouse do not get it confused with the Mixok Inn on the corner. They are not the same even though the breakfast offered is provided by the Mixok Inn. Everything with this place was fine until we tried to get our breakfast on the day we left. The room was clean, the hot water was decent, and the staff was friendly. On the day we left though, we tried to get the promised breakfast, but apparently, contrary to the belief of the guesthouse (they think it's 7 AM), Mixok Inn does not start serving breakfast until 7:30 AM. If you have an early morning bus, and you have already paid for your breakfast with your booking, you will not be able to get it or any money back. Otherwise, this is a decent place to stay.

        Location, Basic and Clean Rooms,

        We usually stay in Vientiane as a stopover. The Mixok Guesthouse is definitely a no frills accommodation, but it's clean enough if you're just looking for a place to crash. Sometimes, the noise from the street can be quite loud and the room we stayed in had a musty smell to it. The good thing about the hotel is that it is close to nice restaurants, the river, temples, travel agencies and all the other major sights in Vientiane.

        Budget Guesthouse”

        The location is brilliant, although it’s situated on a main road so wherever you are in the guesthouse yo can hear the traffic. Avoid the front rooms which overlook the street as the traffic noise is unbearable. It’s an extremely basic guesthouse but it’s quite cheap for Vientiane , 130,000 for a double room. The lobby is nice, they have a cafeteria and seating but the rooms really need renovating. No toiletries or soap supplied. WiFi is touch in the rooms and go but works well in the lobby. They offer a decent next day laundry service @10,000 kip a kilogram. Staff are fairly friendly but English is limited. No elevator of course. They have cctv security so it’s secure in that respect. If you can afford to pay several dollars more a night you can get a lot better hotel but if you’re on a tight budget this isn’t a bad option for a night or two. The Mixok inn 50 meters down the road is no longer the same business; they are now separated. You’ll need to ask front desk if you want your room cleaning. I was there 3 nights and it wasn’t cleaned but I was alone in a double room so it was okay. And I am environmentally conscious so I don’t think it’s necessary to change the towels everyday.

        No Frills Place to Sleep in Decent Location”

        Location, Location, Location

        A basic no frills guest house in Vientiane. Could not complain as it was priced well on Agoda as an "insider deal". Agoda price was much cheaper than their walk-up rate and the rate offered to me when I wanted to extend my stay. No worries, just go upstairs and book another night on Agoda over their free WIFI rather than pay at the front desk...ka ching just saved another 8 bucks. Good location on Guest House row and a 5 minute walk to the river front and all the resto's. Good hot water, slow WIFI, decent AIRCON, handful of English channels on the Tele and rather comfy bed. I would likely stay here again based on value and price. Lodging in Vientiane is much more expensive than other locations in Laos. Prices are on par with Luang Prabang but the rooms are much less value. If you are into ladyboys this is the perfect location for you as you will have a good selection along the street that fronts the Guest House.....LOL

        mixok guesthouse is in a great location. it's close to the riverfront and all kinds of great restaurants. it's pretty easy to walk from it to the centre of town and back. tuk-tuk drivers are always easy to find and like the rest in laos, they aren't pushy and don't really care if you ride with them or not. the room was fine. we did find a pair of dirty underwear in the bathroom upon arrival but it was quickly cleaned out. expect a few problems with the room (our aircon was a little broken) but for the price, can you really complain?
