Good value for money, costed 22.5$ during high season (January) as all other guesthouses were more expensieve or very poor. Big room with fan and huge bed, big bathroom with really hot shower. Nice overall, but Wifi stopped working one day and no one could fixed it. We complained to staff few times, but they just tried to persuade us that Wi Fi worked although it wasn't. So we just used Wifi spot from restaraunt across the street

We stayed here for one night, and it was clean, the staff were friendly, and I would stay here again. It wasn't anything special, but the location was perfect, and it was exactly what we were looking for. Great price, and enough beds for all 7 of us.

Room Tip: We had some conflict at the end of our night with the Tuk-Tuk drivers, and would have felt more comf...

After staying at the Phousi Hotel in town and not being satisfied, we decided to stay at the Nam Sok Guest House for the remaining 4 nights in Luang Probang. Cost was 120,000 Kip($US14) per night for a double room for two people. What we got was a basic clean room, functional bathroom with decent shower, cable TV, free Wi-fi, good a/c, windows with shutters and flyscreens, and a bar fridge. The room was about the same size as we had at the Phousi and a nice large bed. It is only a very short walk to the Mekong River front with all the restaurants and cheap massages. The guesthouse has its own restaurant, or on the opposite corner is a nice little restaurant both with decent prices for breakfast/lunch. Across the road is travel/tour operator with reasonable prices. Just a short stroll to the river front restaurants in one direction and in the opposite direction, the nite markets. Get up early and watch the Buddist monks parade for alms. If I ever return to Luang Probang I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room is cheap, king size bed - 10usd, with free wifi
Location is good; walking distance to night market and mekong riverside.
Room wasn't clean. No air-con remote in my room; and they didn't have a working one either
The restaurant beside served bad coffee.

Myself and my partner stayed in Nam Sok Guesthouse for 3 nights in August 2011. We paid 70,000 Kip a night for a double room, with a fan, en-suite, hot shower and wi-fi.

The Guesthouse was very good value. We had a very comfy bed in a clean and quiet room. The location of Nam Sok is great.

Very simple clean guesthouse style hotel in Luang Prabang
Walking distance to the river, Mount Phu Si, lots of shops and restaurants.
Water pressure not great but just shower at off peak times to get water.
Simple egg and french baguette breakfast served in the courtyard.
No complaints. Stayed 2 nights

We stayed here for three nights, it was the cheapest we could find (100k kip per night between two or £4 each) but this was still over priced for the quality of the room. We had no window, the room was very dark, the shower was leaky and there were a lot of ants in our room.
We were prepared to 'rough' it as we were on a tight budget, but the room became so hot that on the last we night decided to pay for air con in our room. At reception we were told 20k kip for the night (an extra £1.60) which seemed fair for one night. Then when we tried to check out the next day we were told that it would be an extra 100k kip!! This is totally un-reasonable as we would be paying for our room twice. As a compromise the owner said 50k kip, which was still un-fair. We argued for a while but had no choice but to pay so that we didn't miss our bus to leave. Terrible service.

Room Tip: pick another hotel!
