      Very helpful if you do the Thakhek loop

      If you plan to do the Thakhek loop, it is a great place since you can read the guestbook of travelers who did the loop with motorbikes and speak with the travelers that completed the loop. You can also rent motorbikes here. The restaurant is quite expansive but very good. It was clean and quiet.

      Only place to stay for the Thakhek loop, rooms are basic but clean enough. Nice place to hang out, eat, drink, play cards and meet other loopers because there's no other restaurants around. They also rent bikes for the loop at a fairly good rate

      A very nice place to stay - Comfy dorms and it looks like single rooms are available too”

      Cons No water refills.. Only plastic bottled water available.. Although I struggled to find water refill facility anywhere in this town except random shops Awkward power sockets in dorm - just at each end of the room so phone cannot be recharged at bedside Long walk to city/riverfront.. But close to some shops at least Bathroom facilities basic, but ok Pros Good place to hang clothes on balcony- quick dry Reputable Moto rental next door Close to start of the loop Nice rooms - light and airy with view of garden Adequate bathrooms Balcony Nice garden Good Food.. Plenty of choice and fairly well priced Helpful staff.. One of the guys took me to the bus station on his bike to save me paying more for a tuktuk

      Reviews are fairly accurate”

      The reviews are fairly accurate for this one. It's not a great place to stay in terms of facilities. The dorms are a bit basic and there aren't really any curtains. The toilets were often blocked and the showers not that clean, but i can get over that stuff. For me this place was a great base for meeting people to do the Thakhek loop with. I met six others fairly easily.

      The Thakhek loop starting point”

      If you're in Thakhek, probably you're going to do the loop. This means, unless you already have everything figured out, this is the place to be. On the first night you'll meet plenty of people to give you tips or tag along. You can rent the scooters there (checked other prices in town, but ended up renting at the lodge) and get maps or help with the staff. There are definitely better value for money, but meeting people that did the loop or are about to do it make it worth staying here.

      Run down and remote”

      We arrived at the lodge before 9 pm (our bus from the south was delayed), the bar and the (very limited and slow) restaurant were already closed and since the lodge is located at an industry-prown road quite far away from Thakhek itself, we had a hard time finding any food anywhere. The staff was´t helping much, just telling us that there is no place to go. Apart from the (handy) option to rent a bike for "the loop" directly at the lodge, there is no assistance for the tour, not even a map to take away, just an outdated one at the wall. When we returned from the loop, we spend a day in Thakhek and found that the small town is (unlike the area around the lodge) very charming, has beautiful restaurants and affordable guesthouses and dorms directly at the mekong and you can get a bike for the trip everywhere for the same price as at the guesthouse.

      The main house is very simple. Our room was not that nice and the bathrooms on second floor were just old and kind of used down. For one bight it's okay. The food is nice. Behind the travel lodge is a second building. A villa. With rooms for 100000. Those are greeeeaaaat! It's an beautiful island. Ask for those rooms!

      provides everything you likely need, dorm has normal beds

      Note that the location in Google Maps is wrong! It is not in walking distance of the bus station. We had a pleasant stay here in the dormitory. It is quite expensive though compared to the rest of Laos. Basically everyone in the lodge will be doing, or has done, the loop. The staff wasn't particularly helpful. The food was good, but also reasonably expensive and took a very long time.

      Bed bugs ! ”

      Travel Lodge is really taking advantage of their reputation. We had bed bugs in room n°24 and saw in the dorm too (and of what we seen, it is not a new problem). Then, people used to say it is the place to have information about the loop, but honnestly you have can find exactly the same information online. My advice : don't sleep in Travel Lodge, it doesn't worth it. But come to have a lunch and maybe meet other people for the loop. Also, countryard is nice.
