            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.

            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 !

            Disappointing”

            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.

            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.

            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.

            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.

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.
