Mama Paps is a really lovely old lady offering a dormitory on the upper floor of her house. The family lives below. Loved the food. Small kip, big portions 😊 Basic but more than welcoming!

For 25.000 kip you get a double bed in a dorm, including a mosquito net. The family speaks English and is really nice. You have a hot shower and clean toilet as well.

The accommodation is basic. A whole room full of mattresses with mosquito nets. But I arrived at about 10:00pm and the family welcomed me in. And they were only a fraction of every other accommodation in the area. The best part was that in the...More
