I'm a REAL backpacker dammit. ”
Originally booked somewhere else, but was persuaded to move to Real by some friends I'd made. Real ended up being my social hub in vang vieng and I stayed an extra night. Did tubing and the lagoon tour via real too. The place is a little worn and tired but the atmosphere more than makes up for it. There are small dorms with quirky names. I stayed in raddit which I think was supposed to be rabbit. I liked this hostel because had a real communal feel and the breakfast was pretty good. One of the receptionists was a bit rude to me, interrogating me to where I was staying because she hadn't seen me check in and I guess she thought I was stealing a bed??? I'd checked in with someone else and found her attitude really unnecessary, but she was fine to just avoid.
I love this place ! ”
The staff here are what really make the place ! They are so so friendly and welcoming! I ended up staying five nights here !! They all new my name and greeted me like a friend everyday. The beds are by far one of the more comfier beds in Vang Vieng ! I tried out a few and was glad as to where I was staying. The place is clean and it is an excellent place to socialise and meet people. It is opposite a real good cheap restaurant and just down the road from Sakura Bar (free drinks 8-9pm). The breakfast is also really good and you can book things easily from reception. Thanks so much for a great day !
fun hostel ”
very social hostel. had a great stay here. if going to vang vieng I would recommend for sure. the room stunk of paint though as just been decorated. pool table is a fun touch. I didn't bother doing the bar crawl and just net them at the bars anyway!
Good location, very clean, staff very informative”
I like the atmosphere, you will meet great people, it has all you need in vang vieng, they dont serve drinks like in other hostels, but I think it's okay, there are so many places around to party
In the center of vang vieng, the value for money is excellent. Excellent breakfast, bathrooms and rooms always clean. you have pool and billiards a disposition and in the evening the wisky is free. The people who run it are very friendly, The child are so cute! Recommend.
I was sent to the Real Vang Vieng Backpacker Hostel 2, as the one I paid for was having a pool built. I feel this is rather dishonest, you should've taken the property down over this time, as they have different ratings! The toilet roll was left empty for a few days in the communal toilets and for some reason one of the staff tried to turn the air conditioning off an hour early in the room.
Crazy and so fun!”
This hotel such a great to stay with in Vang Veang!!!!!! near Sakura bar, easy for walk to the river and let's chill with restaurant at river. You can walk to the cave by follow the little map ! Such a great beautiful trip!
It seemed like a party hostel on the app but it wasn't, quite and calm, very chilled and relaxed, free pool and foosball tables, pretty clean, good breakfast. staff is helpful and they offer good and VFM tour options. Best eateries and bars are just a stones throw away
Not very fancy facilities but good value for money.”
Very friendly staff with a lot of options for entertainment: from tours to book with them to pool and a swimming pool. Very friendly environment also with other fellow guests. Maybe the downside is they don't provide free water as many other hostels in the area. They did offer free whiskey and watermelon.
Don’t stay here! ”
The room itself was dirty. The bathroom trash can still had toilet paper in it from previous guests and a razor blade on the floor. They’re were 2 man guys working the front desk. One with glasses is very attentive. The other one with ponytail is extremely rude. Checkout is at 11:30. At 11:15 I get a knock on my door and it’s the second guy telling me it’s time to go and waits there until i walk out. Aside from all of that, I got food poisoning from there complimentary breakfast. I just spent hours in the hospital in Vientiane where they found that I had E. coli and brucella. The only thing I ate prior was breakfast at this hostel in Vang vieng. Starting feeling sick instantly. DONT stay here! There are several other hostels on the same street.
Great for solo travelers ”
Booked a night here and ended up staying for 3 nights. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the breakfast was really good and having a pool to jump in at any time of the day (with some free whisky every night in the common area) made it a really enjoyable experience.
Good location. Party hostel. Acceptably clean bathrooms, showers, and beds.
Very social place with a pool and a pool table. Room was clean and beds were okay but there was a must smell and the bathroom could do with some work. Free breakfast is good as long as you like eggs
Perfect find ”
Accommodation here was great. Very central, friendly people and staff. Rooms and facilities were clean. Would definitely recommend staying here - The daily tubing tours at 12.30pm is a MUST :)
I don’t know if I would recommend this hostel ”
I will say the price is good for having a pool, breakfast and AC at night but you need to be really careful with your belongings, don’t live anything important without attention and if something is missing ask to see the cameras.
I didn't stay the real Vang Vieng Backpacker bz it full. Before I came here, I chat with the front officer by FB and comfirmation our booking and show reciept bz the expense paid in full by credit card already on 10 Oct,2015. I need sure but when I came here, the man brought me to another hotel. Why? Why? Why? Why you don't keep my booking? It was bad bad bad. I will not to book this hostel forever. They don't care customer.
Desappointed, i will choose another one next time”
Bed, shower, locker ok Even if people come here to party, the dorms are quiet (you dont hear the music in there) Most of the staff is welcoming and nice, except for a guy who seems to be the boss and who's quite rude in my opinion. The dorm was dirty when i arrived. No soap/towel to wash and dry hands. A personal lamp would be good. I would go for another hostel if i ever come back. I had much better and less pricey previously.
Very worn Hostel”
Ants in the Rooms, really (even for Asia) hard mattresses, loud kids in the hostel all day, WiFi was not working for a long time.... The place has definitely seen better times, everything seems very worn.
Lovley place. Good location, extremly clean, giod breakfast, kind and flexible stuff, pool and tablefootball. I totally recommend.
very good party hostel ”
Friendly staff, good breakfast, nice travelers and rooms ok!
