When I arrived in Spicy Vang Vieng, i thought it was an absolute dump, but as a solo backpacker, the atmosphere was great and the people were friendly. The lockers looked a bit dodgy but during my entire stay (4 days) my valuables were safe. The free brekkie was great - just tea and a baguette each morning, but on...

Coming to Vang Vieng we decided to book a bed here online and seemed great for the price. Little did we know how cheap Vang Vieng was, and how much better accommodation you can get for the same price.

People staying in huts outdoors - feels like camping. Much more geared for younger people to stay here, party atmosphere and very laid back. Always people lying about in the common area chatting. Free WiFi. Drawbacks - outdoors so the Wildlife was hard to handle (gigantic spiders, cockroaches and millions of ants in our room.
