We stayed at Villa Merry 1 for 3 nights during a short stop over in Luang Prabang and it was one of the finer hostel experiences we have had. We booked a double room which was huge. It had an AC unit which worked great and a mini fridge to keep your beers (or water) cold. The room and bathroom... More

They helped us book a full day trip to see elephants, Hmong Village, butterfly park, and Huangxi Waterfall - very enjoyable for all. The family room had a balcony overlooking the... More

The staff here are friendly and most of the staff are English speaking so no difficulties getting advice for the area. When we checked in we had made a mistake with the dates and needed an extra night which was arranged for us with no problems. The rooms are clean and tidy and had great views of the river but...

We stayed here for 4 nights, and all the staff were extreemely polite and helpful. The price is good, and when our aircon stopped working one evening they had called for repair personnel instantaneously. Breakfast was good and cheap. Location is also good. Highly recommended!

Staff was super friendly and welcoming and helped us a lot with planning our days, including a trip to the elephant sanctuary. Rooms were big and nice, aircon was a bit weak and the showers weren't that great but besides that it was perfect. Breakfast was also very good but not included in the room fee!
