This Guesthouse is in a great location with Monks receiving alms just opposite in the morning down the road from the throngs of tourists. It's near the main shopping street and the leafy part of Luang Prabang in fact everything you need to do in Luang Prabang is within easy walking distance . Staff spoke good English

Our room was given up to the highest bidder after we 'secured' the room for $25USD the day before. We had seen the exact same room on Agoda for $35, Booking.com for $31 but upon walking in were told it was for available for $25. Arriving the next day we were rudely told by the woman (whom we had not...

This is listed as nam sok 1 on booking.com as well. I couldn't write on there as we didn't book ahead, so felt the need to post here. The bottom line is the rooms are old and smelly, the old Vietnamese couple that own the guesthouse refuse to acknowledge it, and they are EXTREMELY rude. Worst guesthouse I've ever been...

Stayed here for 4 nights in great location just off the main road in Luang Prabang. Very reasonable price for a spacious, clean room with air con and fan. Our host spoke perfect English and was extremely helpful and welcoming. Would highly recommend anyone to stay here.

Nam Sok won big points for service from the moment we arrived - having been set free from our box on the sleeper bus in the early morning, the guest house allowed us access to the room hours before check in to freshen up. They continued to be helpful and attentive throughout the stay (and the main guy had decent...

We found this place on Agoda and decided to just show up and try to get a room. For 70,000kip we got ourselves a decent fanned room. The sheets were clean, which was nice. The walls and bathroom weren't too appealing though. If you're not too picky, this place is perfect. Awesome location, right near the Mekong. They also had...

The room was spacious and equipped with aircon, shower, fridge etc., but very dark and window facing another building within 2 meters. Location is good with lots of alternatives for breakfast and dining. Didnt see much of the staff. Bathroom a bit worn out.

After a grueling bus ride from Vientiane that arrived after midnight, I was more than pleased at what some lovely new friends had managed to book for me. A spacious room with TV and ensuite bathroom with hot shower greeted me and looked like heaven. It was only 70,000 kip (single occupancy) in high season and included free drinking water...

The perfect stop if you only have one day in Luang Prabang. Location is close to everything you need, and just a short walk to some of the major sites. The staff are very helpful, and there was always someone around if you needed something. Rooms are clean and spacious, and very cool

I know Laos is generally behind when I comes to tourism but this place was an example of how bad it really gets. Glad I only had one night. Paid well over twenty dollars for what I do not know. No airport pick up which I booked, no refund for taxi. Took 10 mins to find staff upon my arrival,...
