Initially, did not have a good experience with this guesthouse as we arrived very early from Pakse and they were full but said that we could reserve a double room with fan and private bathroom and come back at 12. We weren't so keen on that without seeing the room first. So we arranged to come back at 11 and see a room then.
On returning at 11, we were told that there were no rooms available other than a double room with shared bathroom. The price with private bathroom was 12 dollars, with a shared bathroom 11 dollars, which seemed like not much difference for an ensuite. Anyway we took the shared bathroom double which turned out to be great.
The 2 shared bathrooms with toilet were spotless, good shower. The room itself was very clean, nice bedding. we had breakfast which was ok with toast, egg, bread and jam.
The lobby area is very nice and always has a few travellers using the wifi.
The location is great, right by the water area and the night markets and food stalls.
Would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for the strange pricing scheme where for only 1 dollar more you can get a private bathroom (if it's available!)
Can organise tours/buses too at a reasonable price. Good English spoken.
