You are made to feel quite unwelcome on arrival with barely a smile! Our room was in the reception area which did not bode well for a good night's sleep! We paid $20USD which they gave us a local rate of 160000K even though their sign said the double room with air con and en suite was 150000K (perhaps disadvantage...

I had booked 2 nights in a 8 bed female dorm. I arrived in the evening after a long bus trip and they left me waiting for a while and I didn't know what was going on! They finally put me on the 4th floor (the 4th set of stairs are a death trap tiny and very dangerous!) and the...

I stayed a few nights with my girlfriend, the room was clean-ish, dust everywhere and ants would make an appearance. The staff well I can't really say they did much for me during my staff yet I didn't ask them for much. They didn't really seem to smile or say hello. They do give breakfast which was okay and the...

I've stayed in Mixay several times - it is a clean, quiet and comfortable place to stay. The staff are nice and the price is the best in town (40000 kip). The girls dorm is really comfortable however the aircon doesnt always work so can sometimes be very hot and stuffy. When im looking for a party or wanting to...

Got the double room with AC. Room smelled strange. AC didn't work. Very loud, as room is basically IN reception. No windows. Bed is reasonable. After in the room for a couple hours, got a bad headache. NOT recommended.

Luckily we booked only one night, double room for 180k kip, really overpriced for a bunker room without windows. The room and bathroom were really dirty, full of hair and dust. The staff is really rude, not possible to have any useful information. Taxi and tour overpriced. Just better avoid this place!

Stayed here for 3 nights. the rooms are small, no windows and shared bathroom down the hall. For 70.000 kip i am sure you can find better value in the area. Expecially when its low season. The staff however was friendly and they included a free basic breakfast in the room price which helps a bit on the price, but...

I don't have anything against hostels. I've spent months living in them when traveling. But this "guest house" did not have the friendly vibe anywhere. The manager/owner was beyond unfriendly and I didn't trust him. Some of the other folk staying there seemed a bit dodgy (And I lived in third world countries before and grew up in Brooklyn in...
