Stayed in this hostel for over a week and couldn’t recommend it enough. Clean and spacious. Very centrally located and next to everything you need. The staff can’t do enough for you, Michael and Peter are the best hosts. They organize buses and tours from the hostel. Definitely stay there again when we’re back.

Stayed: March 2018, travelled with friends

We initially booked in a different hostel at the same street but the beds were dirty and there was a funny smell. We walked on and found Rock Hostel and were happy we stayed there! Receptionists were super friendly, free breakfast was great and the crowd was fun. Highly recommended!

For meeting people and partying, this is a good place. Don't expect much rest on party nights, as the music can be quite loud in and outside the hotel. Stayed in a private room with my partner, which had basic necessities (bed, towels, shower, toilet).

Pros:
1. Great location, easy to access all areas of town
2. Quick and easy organization for tubing, and transport
3. Reasonably clean
4. A/C if desired (though not needed at night)
5. Breakfast is included
6. Some games in the social area
7. Really nice staff

Cons:
1. No window curtains
2. Loud at night (the people in the hostel are really respectful, it's outside)
3. Can get cold at night, and the blanket they provided wasn't really enough for my partner and I to share. I'm sure if we asked they'd have given us another, however.

Such a great hostel, good vibes, staff were amazing and helped us loads, great distance from the centre, 10 minute walk max! Hot showers and very clean dorms! Would definitely recommend this to any backpacker!

We stayed here for 6 nights and had a great time. It's a backpacker hostel in Laos, so if you're expecting the Ritz Carlton, you're gonna have a rough time. But if you're here to experience the town and countryside, the rock hostel is the place to do it from.
