        Always my best accommodation, but...This is definitely my best accommodation in Vientiane, but I have a notice for potential guests who may chose My Box Hostel & Cafe. There was some construction work just next to My Box Hostel & Cafe (at least 11th and 12th in June 2019) and it caused a really serious problem by making awful sound and vibration which made me unslept since 09:00 till 18:00. Of course it was not a fault of My Box Hostel & Cafe at all, but you may possibly find another accommodation if you have a plan to stay several nights in Vientiane in this June 2019, I’m afraid.

        Highly recommended hostel in Laos!”

        The manager and her staff are very accommodating. The common lounge/area is also good for reading and relaxation. The washroom is clean and well-maintained. The only thing that quite disappointed me was the cabinets. They were too small for big backpacks, hence we had to put our backpacks on the floor. Good thing is that the room’s still clean.

        Peaceful clean hostel.”

        This hostel was quiet but centrally located. The staff was pleasant and welcoming. The facilities were all very clean and seemed quite new. The privacy curtains on the bunks provided a nice sense of seclusion even in the dorm. The showers were hot and had excellent water pressure and the wifi worked well. The free coffee and tea were a nice touch and the cafe/lobby area was provided a good space to hang out outside of the room. All around it was a great hostel!

        Clean, great location, friendly staff”

        Staff: The entire stay the staff was helpful, spoke English really well, and always friendly. It felt very welcoming there. Location: There are buses from the airport that drop people off at the temple nearby. Transport to other cities is easy since there are mini buses you can get through the hostel that pick you up there. There is also the night market 5-10 min walk and many good restaurants really close. The breakfast is toast, bananas, and coffee but it does the trick. They also have clean rooms and plenty of bathrooms for the dorms.

        All was fine. I would just add a few small luggage handles near the bed to make it easier to place a smartphone or a small bottle of water or just hang a towel. And I'd put more catrons between the 1st and 2nd floor to avoid unnecessary light.

        Wonderful place to stay, immaculate and well-finished. Great showers and ample bathrooms for the number of beds. Beds themselves very comfortable and nice and private, and luggage lockers can easily fit a 50litre bag plus daypack. The breakfast offerings are a lovely bonus, and the staff are super friendly and extremely helpful. Only negative is that there were a lot of people arriving late and leaving early in the morning, most of whom would turn lights on and were quite inconsiderate of others trying to sleep; no fault of the hostel staff at all though!

        I stayed here for 4 nights. Very clean sheets and towel (though it had never been changed while my stay). My favorite was the style of bathrooms. Toilet and shower are completely separated in different rooms, and so toilet’s floor was always dry and clean! Thanks a lot.

        Staff were amazing! Bed was clean, big and comfortable. Bathrooms were great, can't fault anything other than there isn't a common area for hanging out and meeting other people but the building it fairly small and doesn't have room for one. I would 100% recommend. Great value for money!

        I stayed here for one night as a quick stop over before then planning to leave laos the following day. Instantly I was impressed with the hostel from how friendly and helpful the staff were along with how clean and modern the hostel is. This is definitely great value for money particularly as the bed is large and comfortable, the dorms are fitted with lockers and a padlock (given to you by the front desk) and privacy curtains. The aircon is also very good and the WiFi is fast. The hostel is located in an area with multiple restaurants near by and is also quite close to the night market (approx 5-7 min walk). I would come back to this hostel in the future :).

        I like this kind of pod hostels. It is similar to those in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. Quiet, clean, no mosquitos, very friendly and helpful staff. Though breakfast is not mentioned, you can have it for free - a cup of coffee or tea, toasts with butter and jam and bananas. Actually you can have tea/coffee and bananas 24 hours a day. Thank you for such a great experience!

        Good for a night or two stop over in Vientiane”

        This is an above average Laos hostel. There is a cafe that has fast internet and can serve as a good workspace. The beds are comfortable and the rooms stay cool. The people at the front are very customer oriented and easy to deal with. There are bananas, coffee and hot water available for free all day (I thought this was very nice). The bathrooms are spacious and clean with soap and shampoo. There are no luggage lockers, only small lockers so the room gets rather cramped. Overall, I recommend this place as a quick stopover.

        Great for the price but don’t book transportation thru them”

        My Box is very clean and the dorm bunks have curtains for privacy. You can actually fit a large backpack in the lockers! The lady in charge speaks perfect English and can answer any questions you may have. Toast, tiny bananas, and coffee for breakfast. Actually coffee and bananas always available. Great WiFi as well. The only thing I wouldn’t do is book transportation thru them. The bus company they use isn’t very good. In fact it’s just awful. My 14 hour sleeper bus ride to Luang Prabang has left me with PTSD. Trust me and book transport elsewhere unless you’re an adrenaline junkie AND a masochist or you just truly hate yourself. Do research. I feel this is important to mention. The hostel is great. The transport they book isn’t.
