The hostel is kind of ancient, but it's part of the charm. We stayed in Cottage Number 3 (I think there's 1 and 2 kind of close by as well). The receptionist was a super-efficient and helpful Vietnamese girl named Thu. She was very sweet. We had to switch rooms because our bathroom had a drainage issue and she was really helpful through it all. It's kind of inexpensive and cosy. But I'm warning you, the hostel is really old and a bit behind the times!

my wife and i stayed 9 nights at the villa merry lao 3 hotel in phousi road. our room was on the first floor. in all the 9 nights we stayed there the room was not made up or serviced once. every 2-3 hours the level in the toilet would rise to just below overflowing, slowly receding and then a horrible stench filled the bathroom and room. the exhaust fan was not working in the bathroom, so we just had to grin and bear the sewerage smell. the location is not good as it is right opposite a "nightclub" and the noise is bad, although a handyman had an attempt to put double glazing in.(not very effective). it is about a 20 minute boring walk to the nightmarket. a much better position at more competitive prices are the guesthouses behind the general post office and behind JOMA(famous coffeshop and bakery) from there to the nightmarket is about 5 minutes. merry laos 111 is run by 2 girls, one, about 5-6 months pregnant) looks after the breakfasts and supposedly the rooms. the girls are trying very hard to please everyone and they do a good job, i think the problem is the owner has 3 hotels and tries to run them on the cheap.
my wife and i are both in our mid 70's and have stayed at many guesthouses, but we definitely made the wrong choice here.
there is plenty of accomodation in Luang Prabang, just take a tuk-tuk from the airport or bus-station and ask to be dropped off at JOMA and you will have dozens of very attractive guesthouses to choose from at more competitive prices.we were really surprised to see some comments of TA members actually recommending this place, although we do agree that the girls are doing their best.

Had a great time during our 3 day stay here. Very nice young lady at the check in desk. Rooms were nice but AC froze up every day. Comfy beds and great spot to watch the giving of alms in the morning.

I stayed at Villa Merry Lao III two weeks ago (Feb 2012) for 4 nights.

Thu, who manages the hotel was so lovely and helpful with suggestions on places to visit, including best times to go, etc. She was so attentive that when I had returned to my room for a nap after an early start, she came to check on me when she hadn't seen me for a few hours saying she was worried I might be sick and couldn't get downstairs (I was travelling alone).

The room was a great size, very clean. I had no problem with TV reception has mentioned in a previous review, however I was on the 3rd floor and was only able to access the WiFi on the ground floor which was a little disappointing.

Location is great for dining & bars being straight across the road from most of the recommended bars, which have a curfew of about 11pm so you aren't kept up all night with noise.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Villa Merry Lao, big thanks to Thou!

Room Tip: I stayed in a Superior Double Room (see photo) which was $28 per night. Some may consider this quite expensive especially compared to other rooms options in Luang Prabang Hostels, but I thought it was excellent value for what I was looking for.

The room is big enough but quite basic. There is a television in the room but reception is horrible so you cannot really watch any channels. Free wifi is good. Breakfast provided is pretty good as well. Across from many pubs which is good for us. Staff is the biggest draw in the hostel! Receptionist is always smiley and helpful. Makes you feel really welcome in the hostel all the time!
