Chilllao Youth Hostel Guesthouse

Reviewed 29 January 2013

Native english speaking staff so able to help with all travel inquiries. Other staff fantastic- helped return a bag to me which I had left on the bus. Wifi and free tea and coffee are available. Rooms are quite simple but clean and free of any critters and are good value for money. Hot shower also helps. Is situated on main road and is walking distance to restraunts, tubing, scooter hiring. Only downside is it gets quiet here at night (ie no bar down stairs to meet othertravellers). But otherwise would definately recommend as a cheap and helpful place to stay at.

Chill, family-run hostel with clean and cheap rooms, great location, great atmosphere, what more can you ask for in a guesthouse? The Chilllao family will give you all the information you need to make your stay in Vang Vieng as enjoyable as possible, no worries. Would definitely recommend it to anyone coming to Vang Vieng, stay at Chilllao, you won't regret it!! Will definitely be coming back here when I make it back to Vang Vieng. Thanks for the good times guys!!

I came to Laos not knowing the language and worrying if I can communicate. The guesthouse had very good and affordable amenities. The staff and people spoke excellent Lao and English which really helped point me in the right direction. A must stay place in my mind.

After Luang Prabang I came to laos and found an even cheaper place to stay! I would have felt terrible trying to barter as the price was already ultra-low, rooms were clean and the wifi as you can see is working great here in my room. Very close to the tubing shop ( i think its about 300 meters or so, 2 blocks) I will be back soon guys, perhaps in june when I get my next break from work.

Probably between average and very good - very OK. Average rooms, pretty good staff, good times nearby. Pretty good place to sleep if everything's all fuzzy anyways, like Vang Vieng was for me most of the time.

staying at chilao hotel now, I pay 40,000 kip for my room and have had no problems. I can't believe that in 2013 there is a place in the world where you can still get a private hotel room for under 4 quid! I want to recomend this hotel to anyone who visits Laos and I also want to thank terry for helping us with the kayaking tour. Seee you next time. Khob jai lai lai der ! ( means thank you)

Room Tip: Room 308 has a "cloud" bed for those of you who want bouncy
