Big clean cheap rooms with comfortable beds located on the main road through vang vieng excellent value for money and a good atmosphere on the bar area only complaint is the service can be a little slow and rude but still would stay here again for the rooms.

We ended up staying here for 4 nights after only planning to stay a couple.
We stayed in a triple room which was so nice! It looks more like a hotel than a hostel.
It is located right in the centre of town close by to everything and lots of people coming and going to meet as well.
We ate here once but it is one of the more expensive - you can get the same food anywhere for cheaper.
Overall loved it and would recommend it!

Had a really great stay here with three other travellers. We had a four bed room and was really comfortable compared to the hostels we had been staying at. The rooms were big, spacious, clean with good bathrooms. The staff were really helpful too.

The downstairs area has a restaurant with really good food and drinks (highly recommend the watermelon shake here as well as the Pad Thai and fried noodles). It was a great place to just hang out and watch the Friends re-runs that Vang Vieng is so famous for! Highly recommended!

Great place to relax, wonderful beds and covers, wifi decent. No book exchange or bicycle hire etc. but places nearby. Beware scammers!! (Motorbike hire) staff nice but overall extremely difficult to actually plan how to catch tuktuks to lagoon, etc. don't know about tubing. Chill out area pretty good, rooms again were amazing. Would stay again, great value. Vv overall is expensive but this was great.

We got in really late, around 130 in the morn. As we knew options would be limited, we decided to give this a go. The owners son was nice enough to let us know that parents were out for a walk, this was Laos Women's Day, so even a majority of the locals were drunk. It did take an hour or so, but in the meantime we chatted with the Belgium couple who we had come in on the bus with and drank a Beer Laos. We had a few encounters with drunk tourists just leaving the bars…. of course I expect this it was just bad timing as I was incredibly fatigued. Finally, the owners returned and though they were a bit smashed they were able to check us into our rooms (minus a bit of confusion). This really was no problem, we got in late and it was a holiday after all. The room was big and clean, cheap at 50,0000 kip. As this is a hostel in a party zone, you are going to get other travelers coming back late and being a little raucous. It wasn't too bad, the all day journey of bus travel without a/c had just worn me thin. The shower in the morning had almost no water pressure, but other then this I think this hostel is great and the owners were really nice. The wife is a little silly, but in a good way.

I stayed here for 1 night, 30.000 kip pp for a dorm (6 pers). There is WiFi (connection is so so) hot water. Bathrooms are not clean, but for 30.000 acceptable.

They can do laundry, 8.000kip/1 kilo - back the same day.

Staff is not very friendly - They seem agitated.

Easy to meet other people. It's good for what u Pay for it but don't expect to much.

We lucked out and got room 401 (highly recommended on here) without even asking. Only 80,000kip between the 2 of us. Big, clean rooms. Hot shower. Awesome private balcony and view! Great social area with restaurant and close to everything. Internet sucked, but not enough to make me not want to stay there again. Highly recommended!
