When we showed up at 2am there was still a crowd drinking and having a conversation outside. Staff members ran over to help us with our bags and get us checked in. The next day, I had to go to the embassy to get my visa for Vietnam, but the owner was able to arrange a same day pickup and save me some time (however, it did cost me $15 more than if I had done it myself). The eight person dorm room was 50,000 kip, but it also included breakfast which seems worth the price. The rooms have fans, A/C, and large lockers.
The hostel has a movie room down stairs and is always really active. I would say it is the best place to meet new people in Vientiane. However, if you want water, bus tickets, or a bike, it might be best to walk down the street and get it cheaper. Basically, if you are lazy and want to arrange everything through the hostel, it will cost you. But, they will be happy to accommodate.
