Having travelled up through southern Laos we had grown used to having to pay for any luxuries in our rooms (eg air con, ensuite, hot water... Towels...) So we were happily surprised with the amazing value of a place located right in the centre of the capital.
The rooms are amazing, very spacious and clean with plenty of toiletries, cable TV and air con as standard. The bathrooms were also of the same high standard and we were very happy to collapse here after our long journey.
As I have mentioned the location of the hostel is perfect especially if you wanted to do the lonely planet monument to Mekong cycling tour which starts in the road one over from the hostel (there are also plenty of bikes available for hire from the hostel to do the tour with at 10,000 kip per bike which you can keep hold of as late as you like).
The management staff are another great thing about the hostel. They are both very friendly and helpful when it comes to finding your way around. They also managed to sort out our door pretty quickly when the lock was broken (albeit with the help of a hammer) and even offered us anotherr room when it seemed we might not be able to get it to work.
Finally the key reason that you should book this place is the amazing cooked breakfast that is included with your room. With 5 or so different choices including pancakes and French toast it is Well worth booking a room here just for this reason alone!
