If you go to Luang Prabang in Laos and look for a place were you not only get value for your money, but also meet a friendly staff (owner), you should check in at Oudomphong ll Guest House (remember it has to be the new building ll ;).
The rooms are clean and nice, it's a quiet place(not a lot of party/young people). It's about 50 meters from were the marked starts and only 30 meters from the Mekong river. When entering the street, don't get "scared away" by the look of it, as soon as you enter the Guest house, you will be happy :) The owners are just so friendly and will help you if they can!! I will surtenly stay there again, if I return to Luang Prabang again. Free Tea/cold water and free WIFI, but most of all clean and super friendly place :D
