Luang Prabang, Laos
I read the reviews for this hostel before booking. Yes, they are true. The lady at the reception is very very helpful. We reached Luang Prabang very late in the night (11:30pm). But managed to get a Tuk-Tuk to this place (thankfully, it is popular and so the tuk-tuk driver knew the hostel!). The lady arranged a shared trip to KwangSi falls, which was really good! The next day, she also arranged a motorbike for us to go to Tad Sae and gave the directions as well. Altogether, I definitely recommend staying in this hostel.
Very bad value for money. Rooms were basic and clean but it felt more like a prison cell. Mainly disappointed with the city of Vientiane as well.
