The dorm room was good though security not excellent (lockers falling apart & rooms not locked). The common room & bathrooms were clean & pleasant. Staff were helpful & friendly. Felt a bit ripped off by the onward ticket to Nong Khai I booked through hostel - paid 60000 kip for bus, but was taken to train station. It would have been much cheaper to hire a tuk tuk & buy the train across the border (20 batt) ourselves. And less stressful, since the songthaeow was 20+ min late.
