We spent the night here in early February. While we expected a basic place, we were very disappointed with the guesthouse. The man at check-in was surly at best and difficult to find when we had an issue or two. When we did find him and let him know about the huge column of ants streaming up our bathroom wall,...

We booked a room here through Agoda, and paid quite a bit for it ($25 if I remember correctly). We arrived to find out that we were one of several who were overbooked (all Agoda's fault, of course). Coincidentally (?) they did have a room available at the guest house across the street, which I believe is run by the...

I stupidly forgot my wallet containing passport, U.S. dollars and credit card in the room (under the mattress) I returned to the guest house to retrieve it. I expected to recover it without the money of course but ... this is the game. The owner told me he has nothing found! I explain, first calmly, that my wallet: large and...

We booked this place through Adisak 3 months in advance of our stay based on the trip advisor review. We were only the second boat in, and fortunately only 2-3 minutes after the first. The owner had just given our room away to a tour guide from the first boat as we walked into reception. Both the owner and tour...

We booked way ahead of time on Agoda (being overly cautious & not wanting any hassle when we got off the boat). Ended up paying less than other drop-ins were quoted. Difficult to compare, as not many guest houses in Pakbeng are on Tripadvisor, so this place looks good with the lack of many other reviews! It was basic, but...

We booked 3 rooms at this guesthouse through Agoda.com, 5 months before the occupation date, for a one night stopover during a 2 days cruise down the Mekong. As you might or might not know, Agoda.com charges in full the price of the reservation instantly. Therefore, our 3 rooms were fully paid 5 months ahead of time. Surprise! The day...

We didn't book in advance and had no idea where to go but the owner stopped us on the street and told us he still had a room for 100000 Kip. The room was nice and at a convenient location. I can only recommend this place if you're staying in Pakbeng and are on a budget.

Just 3 minutes walk from boat. Simple, clean room with all you need. Noisy bar opposite, but closed down at about 10.30pm. Pre-book direct with guesthouse, or walk past the hustlers surrounding the boat on arrival. You'll get better value (almost half the accommodation price offered by the slowboat trip guide and hustlers). Gorgeous breakfast in restaurant opposite overlooking the...

I thought I had it bad until I heard the stories of other hostels/guesthouses. It wasn't anything amazing don't be expecting much. Clean(ish) room depending on what you call clean. Bathroom did the job. Very very good location 2 minutes from the boat. Friendly staff although we didn't see too much of them, very basic value for money stay. After...

We had an excellent room, clean, good bed, nice bathroom. The location is great, very closely located to the pier and across the street is a breakfast/lunch restaurant of the same owner, with good food and good prices. We paid 100.000 kip for the room. When you get out of the boat, don't let yourself get persuaded by the local...
