Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed at the guesthouse for over two weeks. It’s located directly in the center of the UNESCO world heritage town Luang Prabang in a small side street. Only 30 meters to Mekong riverside and a 2 minute walk to the night market. So everything you need is close enough that you can reach it by walking (shops, restaurants, some of the tourist attractions). But still very quiet at night to have a good sleep.
The room was very clean and equipped with an aircon and tv. The bathroom was modern and had a hot shower with good water pressure (even upstairs). The mattresses were also very comfortable, one of the best I slept during my whole trip through Laos!
There is a nice seating area in front of every room to relax, have breakfast or just enjoy the atmosphere of the city at the end of the day.
The owner and the staff of the guesthouse are very friendly and helped in every situation. At the end it felt more like home instead of staying in a guesthouse. I will definitely come again!

While our travels in the north of Laos the Y Not Lao Guesthouse was our homebase in Luang Prabang. We've stayed there a few weeks and it was great! Everything is new and very clean, air-conditioned rooms, tea and coffee for free and we really felt at home at this place. Awesome location near the Mekong and the center, nice restaurants and the night market close by. Best thing about staying there was the atmosphere; with the owner and the staff it felt more like friends and family after our time there. I will definitely come back! Thanks for everything :)

Authentic restored rooms and very close to the city centre and all important sights. Staff is very friendly. Very reasonable prices. Owner Mike grew up in Australia and is very supportive. Perfect location to explore Luang Prabang and the Lao way of life.

I loved my stay at Y Not Lao - the location was perfect, close to many of the sights and in a charming part of the world heritage center. It is also very quiet around here, lots of great restaurants nearby. The breakfast every day was amazing - coffee, fruit shakes, eggs/fruit/pancakes. Definitely one of the best free breakfasts I've had in Asia so far! Mike is so friendly and made me feel so welcome. He is very helpful whether you want to know more about the town, things to do, or if you need help figuring out where your ride to the bus station is... The only thing I didn't love was that my room was above the kitchen so it was sometimes a bit noisy in the morning as the staff was getting ready for breakfast. And my room didn't really have a view...so it was a little dark. But since I wasn't there much during the day, it wasn't a big deal. And it was good for sleeping!

Y-Not Lao Guesthouse is now the ONLY place I stay when I visit Luang Prabang, where I have two adopted Lao sons and many many Lao friends. I visit once or twice a year. Y-Not is located on the main peninsula on a quiet off-street just steps from the Mekong River, so the location is superb. Prices are generously low, the rooms are clean, the water is hot and air conditioning cool, and each room has its own patio with table and chairs. The breakfasts are lovely, and made to order. But what lifts Y-Not Lao Guesthouse into the exception is the staff, particularly Mike (Mai) Kito, the manager. Mai befriends guests, and those with enough days in Luang Prabang may be treated to his friendship. He can recommend and arrange off-the-tourist-map activities (like The Bamboo Experience, or The Living Land, or renting a boat for a day's trip down [not up, where most tourists head] the Mekong, to explore genuine Lao villages ), but if you're interested, and if Mai has time, he may take you to his own home Khmu village north of LPB, where he has built a farm for his family. Mai also runs a program that provides free books to isolated northern Lao villages. An hour in his company is worth the price of airfare--his stories of encountering Khmu forest spirits; stories about the vast, extended family for which he provides; his knowledge of Lao myths and culture. And his nephew Tana, who lives at Y-Not, is certainly the number one candidate for The Cutest Kid in Laos. So Y-Not Lao Guesthouse is a wildly exceptional choice for accommodation in Luang Prabang. Guests get a terrific location at an affordable price in a quiet Lao neighborhood with lovely comfortable rooms, but in addition they get opportunities, through Mai and his staff, to expand your experience of Laos into a dozen different directions unavailable anywhere else. Five stars, happily awarded.
