Had a great week in our Deluxe Double Room with River View. Amazing breakfast, especially the Crêpes, nice cocktails and a lovingly created area. We came here to have a releaxing time and were really impressed. If you are searching for a nice place to chill out and meeting interesting people, I would recommend SaSaLao. Sure, to the city centre it is a few minutes to walk, but with a tuk tuk you have a cheap and comfortable way to get there. The staff could be more extroverted, but all in all: Thanks for the great time. :)

PS: Also join the Sa Sa Sunset Cruise. Had an amazing sunset.

This is a really bad hostel. The service is awful and often rude. The rooms are crowded and the bathrooms don't work properly. The shower flooded and the sink didn't have a waste. The lights cut out one evening. There are dogs everywhere at one point I had 5 in my room and one of them was on heat, you can imagine what was happening. Also its really far out of town and the roads into town don't have lights or sidewalks. Just so many nicer places to stay with friendlier staff. Avoid avoid avoid.

Awesome wee bar with great view and access to river cruise on offer also.
Ben was great along with the other young French gentleman. Very helpful and friendly. We only had beers as we waited for the cruise but hung out for a while afterward also. Cool place

This place is simply amazing! The bungalows are just great with big and comfy beds, bath is clean, the staff is kind and helpful, the service is the best so far, food and drinks are delicious. They also have very nice massages, a mud bath and a free river cruise. Highly recommend this place for a short or long stay.

We stayed here as a recommendation from a friend. At first it seemed good, the facilities are nice and it's a cute little set up with some nice areas to relax. We did know ahead of time that it was about 2 km away from the city centre which we had decided we were fine with.

The service is what really made this hostel unbearable. When we arrived we asked about laundry, we were told if we brought it in the morning it would be ready the next day late afternoon. When we brought it in the morning, they told us "maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow morning, maybe tomorrow afternoon" ??? Not sure how that is suppose to be helpful. We called later to get an update because we were trying to plan our next day. They said it would be ready that evening. When we returned to the hostel, it wasn't ready. They said it would be ready in the morning before we check out. The next morning, it STILL is not ready. The girl at the desk told me it would be there soon... At this point I was overly frustrated and went back to the room. I returned to get an actual time frame of when it would be ready and she pointed to a garbage bin full of our laundry and said it was still wet. Great!

We asked for a refund for the laundry which they did give us (reluctantly as the girl at the desk slammed the money on the counter and didn't look at us). It wasn't about the money but how unprofessional and unhelpful the staff was. They were not apologetic or considerate of our time.

Although the facility is okay, it's really not worth the trouble of dealing with the staff and the commute into the centre. We moved to another hostel in the centre that day and the staff was much friendlier and kind (and the facilities better and cheaper!!).
