My stay in the dorm of Joy Guesthouse was awful!! I realized that there are many bugs in the beds, just impossible to sleep!!!! Moreover, I wanted to make a small change in my booking, and the staff denied in such an unfriendly manner. My worst experience during my last 4 months in Asia!! Go away!!!!

This would have been a 5 star rating, given how nice the rooms are, great location, comfy beds, hot showers, super nice & helpful staff, decent wifi, good facilities. We booked a private room and it's very nice and would have been worth the cost of not for the noise. I'm even tempted to give it 2 stars as we...

This place is ok if you're young and don't mind noise from the rooms next door or downstairs. The walls are thin. The rooms are basic and the bathroom was the usual basic one. The owners are quite helpful and the location is central and there is a great place for rice soup breakfast next door. There are double rooms...

The location of Joy Guesthouse is perfect as it is located right across the Mekong River and in the central part of town (very close to the famous temples and night market). The staff is helpful and friendly. But we think that 90.000 kip for two simple, thin mattresses in a crammed 10-person dorm with only 1 toilet/shower is too...

My boyfriend and I loved our 3 night stay here. It was just outside of the more upscale tourist area which ended up being perfect. Our room was clean and quiet and it was so amazing walking right outside and seeing the river. The location is great as it's a 1-2 minute walk to the night market. The owners are...

The best thing here is the location! Just next to the river and still close to the city. The dorm room is also good but only one toilet/shower for 10 people is not too much. But for the price (we gave 45000 for one dorm bed) its nice.

I happened to reach here midnight with no phone. Has some difficulty contacting the owner. White bedsheet and white pillow case. Very clean room and toilet with warm shower. I meet a lot of friends from there. Their tour package and bus ticket is very cheap!!

I arrived at 01/04/2015 with my friend. House was cleaned and simple. Water was good. Above all, mirror was very big, so women could use conviently. Host was very kind. Unfortunately, a little bug came out but that's okay. Wi-fi was not good well. You think this point. But I wanted to go here again. Thank you.
