This place was an awesome stay, its in a great location (close to a swimming pool with cooled water which is amazing in this heat! Also close to bookstores, the night market, and the national museum). The people are friendly and very helpful, you can also buy your bus tickets to almost anywhere here. They serve delicious burgers that have pineapple on them (yummy!) and have free breakfast and wi-fi. The rooms are cleaned daily (and the beds are always made).
The staff is friendly and welcoming, and the people I met here were great!
Great place to stay for a few days or a couple weeks (if you can find enough to do in Vientiane for that long!)

Otherwise a great hostal. Yummy breakfast and great location but I'm afraid this does not make up for being bitten! The hostal workers knew there were bed bugs and i told them again so hopefully they will do something about it but i doubt it.

The hostel is pretty average for the price - good clean bathrooms, good wifi, free breakfast etc but they have a HUGE bed bug problem.
We only stayed one night here because we got beg bugs...guess we should have listened to the graffiti all over the walls.

This hostel would be really good, but it is unfortunately completely infested with bed bugs. I woke up covered in bites and saw them crawling on the sheets.
Good location though, excellent hot showers, good free breakfast.... But not worth the bites!
