                      Best place to stay in Vang Vieng!!”

                      As soon as you arrive & see the pool you just know it’s going to be a fab time in this hostel! The staff are great, friendly & repectful, we got to know them as we spent a lot of down time at the Nana & it was awesome that they come from all over the world. The rooms are clean & they provide you with a clean towel each day, we had a private room and it was excellent! There is a real party vibe here & we met so many awesome people! Would come back here, in fact we made our stay longer and stayed more nights at the Nana as we had the best time here in Vang Vieng. Highly recommend!!! Will be back again for sure!

                      Suberb hostel in Vang Vieng with swimming pool and an awesome atmosphere all around the hostel. Staff very Friendly and helpful, manager Pikachu is the best take to everyone stay . The public area around the pool is great and has something going on all the time, and it's wonderful place to book your tours and activities and meet people. Free Vodka & Whiskey served from 7-9pm, you can really enjoy this hostel even if you're not there to party. Would 100% recommend to everyone.

                      stayed more than I booked. hostel overbooked but the manager named pikachu was nice enough to freely upgrade me and my girlfriend to a private room so it was great since we kinda needed it. Big bed, nice view from the balcony and modern facitlies. staff was great with the information about tours and what to do in vang vieng. rented the bike here and used the laundry service. Huge place with nice restaurant and bar. We got more than what we paid so really satisfied with my stay here

                      New hostel in vang vieng so it was nice since the hostel is clean and facilities were new. Pretty big for a hostel and the swimming pool is a nice touch! Staff were very helpful and friendly and the manager pikachu is a great guy who helped us sort our vietnam visa. Dorms have no key but have lockers, toilets clean and they have a restaurant and bar (w/ pool table!) Had a fun stay and would recommend to anyone :D

                      Brilliant Private Rooms”

                      This is a party hostel but the music stops before 12 and can't really be heard in the rooms. The private rooms were amazing value for money - very comfortable, modern and clean. Only comment would be that the dorms were slightly cramped (didn't stay there but saw) and that the area around the pool stays quite wet and with all the wet shoes around it doesn't feel particularly clean as there are often a lot of flies. However, wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Vang Vieng.

They helped us with things to do in vang vieng and even the vietnam visa. Free alcohol at night. Big swimming pool to cool during the day. Great atmosphere, social vibe, free to play and request music at the bar. Really enjoyed my stay and might stay here again when I come back for my visa!

Location is very good, places to eat and go out drinking within few minutes walking distance. Would recommend for people looking to have a more social/party stay in Vang Vieng.

                      If you want to party in Vang Vieng, this is the place! The hostel offers a nice pool, free vodka and whiskey every night and good and affordable food. The private rooms are really nice, clean and spacious, and the shower is also nice. They arrange the tubing for you and it is the best way to meet people! If you are in a private room and prefer to rest, it is still okay, since the music is not that loud and it stops around midnight.

                      Considering the available options in Vang Vieng this hostel is a solid choice even if one doesn't like to party. Maybe I was lucky but my dorm room (6 bed) was fairly comfortable and roommates were considerate. Unfortunately the beds didn't have any privacy curtains and the AC in the dorm was already a little tired, resulting in a warmer but still reasonable temperature. There are more than enough toilets and showers available and they are kept clean though there's no shampoo provided in the showers. Keep in mind that I went there during low season, might be a different experience when it's more crowded.

                      Stayed in hostels around south east asia but I must say this is the biggest hostel I've been to with a restaurant on the left, bar on the right and swimming pool in the center. I heard atleast 200+ people can stay in this hostel. and the hostel is always fullybooked everyday! insane! so thus no free breakfast because they can't really serve everyone. but you can order food for a good price and the bar is cool. the nana staff are the best of the best. everyone is awesome. bar and reception included. stayed here for a week or so and enjoyed every single day. easy to meet people as well :)

                      actually just booked a night because not sure if I'll enjoy staying in a party hostel since I'm more used and into laid back and chill places but thought i'd try this hostel since it has high reviews and heard from friends. Actually liked it here a lot and stayed longer. Didn't expect to make a lot of new friends. Sometimes it can be too much but that it's what to expect here. Very very fun hostel. quite clean, and the private room is awesome. Staff are absolutely friendly too. might try out other party hostels now in the future. thanks nana

Stayed in a dorm for 1 night and it was nice and clean with lockers. But recommended to stay in the private room if have the budget! Excellent staff and can order food from the restaurant. Fun fun hostel , met a lot of people along the way here and it was awesome. Enjoyed my stay here for sure.

                      If only I could stay here at Nana forever lol. Had to leave for vientiane but decided to just come back here instead and stay for few nights more. seriously had a lot of fun here every single day. my friends and I really enjoyed the service of the staff and their friendliness. We even got to hang out and party with some of the staff outside so it was cool! very chill in the day and nice to swim on the pool. free alcohol at night woot. party party. food in their restaurant is quite good. facilities clean and dorms basic but fair for the price. i can say this is the best hostel in laos. love nana

                      Best time at nana”

                      Had a great time at nana and they made my stay in vangvieng a lot more special. Met so many awesome people and the staff were great too. Nana is definitely a party a hostel so if you're looking for fun and make new friends then this is for you. Music can be loud but it stops before midnight. Facilities and toilet were clean for a party hostel . Regularly cleaned and they offer tons of services. Can't recommend this hostel enough!
