I used Booking.com to book into the Thawee Guesthouse. Upon arrival, I was told by the woman on the desk that although they had received the reservation that morning, they had given the room to someone else. When I protested this and showed the confirmation, she just laughed. She did, however, say that they had one “large” room left, but...

After searching for a cheap room I decided to stay here. Met all expectations for a cheap room in Laos. Big room and bed. Only stayed in Vientiane for 2 nights before moving through to Vang Vieng. Good location and staff

We arrived to find that the management of the guest house had apparently changed and the new owner had no knowledge of our Hostelworld booking. Instead of offering an apology and refunding my $10 deposit, he suggested that I kindly 'forget' about it and agree to take a room at a higher price to the one I had booked. Thanks...

We booked this hotel by making searching on internet, we found this guesthouse. We spent nearly one week here, we felt satisfied with the room, staff and service. The location is terrific,very walkable and close to tons of great little local sidewalk eating places, and right by the night walking streets. We'd stay there again for sure

We honestly experienced no problems with this hostel - the guy (Ming or Michael) runs the whole place by himself and does a great job. His English is perhaps not the best but he is always trying to learn. I have read some of the other reviews and didn't find anything like that at all. The room was fine -...

DO NOT STAY HERE!!! At 1st glance the hostel looked ok. When checking in we asked about the free airport transfer that was offered online & we were told that we had to pay. I got on the website & showed where in capital letters it stated free airport transfer & the guy finally gave in after a lot of...

Booked for two nights at the hostel and were redirected to the guesthouse which was fine. Still nicely located for everything in the town (not that there's much!) and our room was a decent size. However there was an extra single bed in there which meant the double was squashed up against the window and left about 6inches between the...

Location: The guesthouse is located fairly nicely. It is a short stroll to the river where the night market is held. It is close to the center of town and you can reach all of the good restaurants and bars by foot. Room: It was a double ensuite and it would have been a struggle for one traveler. Extremely small...

We stayed here after booking a room in Vientiane Backpackers Hostel through HostelBookers.com ... Or so we thought. Vientiane Guesthouse is a sister-hostel to the Backpackers Hostel and this is where you are sent if you book a private room through HostelBookers. After arriving at the Backpackers Hostel the guy took our money and sent one of his staff to...
