We weren't expecting much as the reviews were terrible. The staff were very helpful and obviously trying to cope with no resources. Was once a little haven after a hard day at the plain of jars, you can tell but the owner's son has let it fall into disrepair and neglect. The stairs were rotten in cabin one, cabin five was lovely. Awful karaoke from down the bottom of the hill, but was over by 10. Without a car it would have been awful as it is far from town, we drove into Phonsavan for dinner twice at Bamboozle, what a find, that place is. Breakfast was absolutely fine, not sure what the fuss was about. Dogs barking all night but that is Phonsavan.
