I stayed in lemon laos for almost 6 days and this place felt like home. The staff was warm, kind and welcomed us like members of their family. This place has pool and ping pong tables, and also a cool hangout place where everyone can seat and enjoy each other company.
I warmly recommend everyone(not only backpackers) to try this awesome place!

the place is not too easy to find, actually a little bit far from the pier. the dorms are like dorms are. the wifi is ok. the price is good the included breakfast is awesome. when you are once there the location is actually pretty good and i think its just the hostel to be to meet some other people. the waterfall daytrip is amazing. enjoy

Stayed in the 10 bed dorm. One of the worst ones I've ever slept in as it was extremely hot each night and the one fan in the room doesn't reach 50% of the beds.
Beds and pillows are very uncomfortable, old and dirty. My sheets were stained with blood.
Staff are lovely and friendly. Vibe is great.
Super cheap but you really do get what you pay for.

Lemon Laos Hostel (used to be spicylaos, they changed the name) is a great and cheap place (2$ a night in the dorm) for hanging out on the terrace with fellow backpackers and meeting up nice people. They also organize trips to the waterfall every day. The matresses are not the most comfortable in the world and it's basic but I loved staying there and finding my place in the backpacker's community in luang prabang :)

It really seems like a backpackers' mecca, but has enough space to host lonesome souls as well. Free wi-fi, a few big (up to 10 people) and a few smaller (3 people) dormitories without doors, but lockers are available. Fans in every room. You have to get outside the house to get a shower, but the toilets and showers are surprisingly clean for the price. The staff is really nice - the owner's son was having a birthday party the day I came and everyone was invited.

Spicy Lao (now officially Lemon Lao) is without a doubt the best backpackers in Luang Prabang. The World-Heritage listed building has several dorms with fan/air con options and the place has the classic friendly sociable backpacker buzz that so few places truly create. The owners offer all transport/sightseeing/food & drink/laundry services at competitive rates and are more than willing to go out their way to help you out such as a loft to the bus station. This is a fantastic place to meet people and have fun in Laos.
