        Very clean, free breakfast, and great location!”

        Y-Not hostel was great! Really! I was very fortunate to find such a great place at this affordable price!The hostel was very clean and perfectly comfortable! Kehn (the owner), worked in the hotel/hospitality business since he was 16 years old, moved his way up to management at a hotel, and now opened his own hostel! He put a lot of time and effort into Y-Not and his hard work paid off! What used to be a bar, Y-Not Hostel is one of the best hostels in Luang Prabang, thanks to Kehn and his wonderful staff. In a clean bed and breakfast of eggs (your style) and a baguette made personally when you wake up, I was happy to wake up here. (By the way, Kehn is only 21 years old, and has started and established his successful business from scratch!- what an inspiration!) I cannot say enough about Y-Not and the wonderful people who work here! I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to get to know them. Stay at Y-Not Hostel! Koi hok jao!

        Great base in luang prabang”

        The shared dorms here were absolutely fine as a base to use whilst exploring luan g prabang. They are pretty cheap, but absolutely fine! The staff were lovely and helpful, breakfast was provided if you wanted it( not too pricey) and they sorted out bus tickets etc if you asked. The beds were fine, you got a duvet and towel! The showers were not and the water never went cold. Coming from private rooms in guesthouses to here, I was dubious, but I had absolutely no reason to be! It's centrally located and offers everything that a traveller needs to explore, but at a really fair price. Great stay!

        So comfortable as a hostel. Thick mattresses and hot powerful showers. Staff are lovely, bikes and motorbike rentals are great quality. I was able to use their staff kitchen to cut my fruit, store my things in their fridge and also accidentally got my dates wrong and booked a night before I arrived, they were very forgiving and I didn’t need to pay extra.

        Not a pleasant stay”

        Pros;. HOT water, good basic breakfast included with our booking (but you can't order before 8:45 or 9:00). Not a long walk to the Old Town and close to Utopia. Cons: very noisy at night (dogs barking, roosters, etc.) and the sound entered the room easily. Beds were very hard, with a thick plastic cover, and the pillows were much too thick. The upper floor where I stayed was weak and the bed shook whenever someone walked by in the hallway. The guy at the desk seemed to only care about watching YouTube and didn't want to be bothered for anything (except breakfast, which was served promptly and cheerfully). Bathrooms weren't very clean.
