Stayed here for 2 nights while doing the Plain of Jars tour. The guesthouse is a short walk away from the mini-van station and near the main road for various food options. Kong, the guy who runs this place, also does tours to the jar sites. Kong is a great and knowledgeable guy with lots of funny stories, anecdotes and historical insight on the area and the secret war. I am super glad I booked my tour with him! The room I had was a little tight, but this was perfectly fine for my 2 nights. Hot water shower was great considering it does get a bit chilly there. In the evenings, sit by the fire, have a beer and hang out with the other guests and Kong. This was a great way to relax after a day of touring. Kong was also kind enough to arrange my onward ticket to Luang Prabang and walked us to the mini-van station in the morning to ensure we got the right one. Great location, easy check-in, cozy atmosphere. Would definitely recommend!

I stayed here for a total of 4 nights. Very friendly guesthouse. Close by the market where I found some great food for breakfasts and close to town. Kong and his family are great hosts, very inclusive of everyone. Amazingly good hot, strong showers too. I went on one of Kong's group tours of the Plain of Jars and it was extremely informative and we also had a lot of laughs. I liked the central place where you can sit and chat to other guests around a fire. Free coffee and you can buy a beer. It was good to chat to Kong about onward travel plans. That is how I ended up going to Sam Nuea and then on to Viengxay to visit the caves and learn about the history of The Secret War in Laos. Really fascinating and confronting story. PS I stayed in a standard room which was fine but I had a peek in the bungalows and they looked really nice if you have a few extra dollars.Good value.

I chose this place after reading reviews about the place and Mr Kong and I wasn't dissapointed. I stayed in the double bungalow - in the newer part. It was clean and comfortable - and quite spacious, with a table - with a great hot shower. I was also given a hair dryer to use (just ask - they don't leave in the rooms as some people steal them). A fire is stoked up each night in the communal area where you can chat and drink with your host. This place us also a quick walk to restaurants, ATMs and the night market. I did the Plain of Jars sites 1, 2 & 3 tour with Mr Kong. They run most days as long as there is enough people. More people, the lower the cost. We were 4 people in the end. Mr Kong is a wealth of knowledge and has a lot of interesting information to tell you as well as some humerous stories. He also knows of some good photo opportunities at the Jars sights!

Rented 2 rooms. One room was part of the larger complex; the other was a larger room that was part of the newer complex. Booked through Agoda, and proprietor was very helpful. Showed me the rooms and made sure I liked them before processing the transaction, as is the custom, it seems, in Laos. You ask to see a room if there's vacancy; they show it to you; if you take the room, it means you're okay with it and cannot complain about it too much later. No fridge in either the older or newer room. This region of Laos can get super cold, and the windows never could be shut tight, so mornings were freezing. Super hot water though. In the older room, the toilet was extremely low, even for someone who stands only 5'4''. It's not almost as squatting; it is squatting, to me. Neighbor owns a rooster that wakes you up at 4 every morning, which is the case at about 80 percent of hotels I have stayed in during my time in Laos. Very close to Hmong morning market, where you can find produce, meat, bakery items, and cheap hot food. The morning market is also where you can catch a bus/van to a different city, or a tuktuk within the city or someplace nearer or to the 2 main bus stations. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Bring cash (crisp bills) to pay.

We had a double room - good size, very clean, fan (not needed as cool at night in October), shower with plenty of hot water - shower and toilet are together but we managed ok The social fire pit is great as is the 10,000 kip for large beers Kong is a great host - even picked us up from the airport- we did his day tour of sites 1,2,3 which was excellent- he was a mine of information. We took the 30 minute flight from LP on Lao Skyways $us50 and then the 6 hour van ride to Vang Vieng (2 stops for toilet and a soup lunch)
