Another objective review from FattM. As always, your results may vary. NOTE: This review is for Youth Inn 2. Youth Inn 1 is being renovated or something. They're on the same street. 1 is close to the river. 2 is opposite the temple. And the fellows who live in the temple ring the bell at 4am to start their day,... More

I stayed here for 1 night as it was cheap,however,if you can afford it I would suggest paying a little bit extra and staying somewhere semi decent. The rooms smelled quite badly and the walls were very dirty. The sink in the bathroom drained right onto the floor so it was pretty pointless even having a sink in the bathroom.... More

The hotel is fine, buy stay away from the bikes. We had the most frustrating 4 hour trip back from Buddha Park, and the owner was far from helpful. Thank goodness for the kind staff. You've been warned!!

We ended up in the Youth Inn after exhausting all of the other budget options. The room stank, but the bed was free of bugs and whilst not exactly comfortable, was not uncomfortable enough to keep us awake at night. However, we did see a cockroach. We paid 60,000 kip for one night and immediately moved to Mixay Paradise next... More

The Lao Youth Inn is just aacross the Wat Mixay (Temple) in the tourist area of Vientiane, close to the waterfront. The GH is relatively big, our room (double) was relatively clean and had mosquito screens on the window, the bed was okay. The only downside is, that the walls are thin and people talking in the next room or... More

Youth Inn 1 was infested with bed bugs. We thankfully inspected the beds before paying, and left quickly. Youth Inn 2 was not. The rooms were reasonable. 'Good,' I hear you say. Well, yes, but the tale has only just begun. Firstly, the staff were rude and unhelpful, and would say one thing very clearly, but then would later create... More

location is fine, sheets were clean but service is pretty poor, sleepy quality (we could here guests in next room and hall) pretty crappy and my shoes were stolen from the lobby, i would stay somewhere else next time. price was cheap but for $3 more you can stay next door and looked much better.
