If you're going to Vientiane and on tight budget try this budget friendly hostel located just in Mekong riverside. The room and staff were friendly. They served good food too. Everything was a good walking distance. I will definitely stay here again in the future.

Visited twice for dinner while in Vientiane. The new managers have included specialty French dishes alongside traditional Lao food. I was impressed with service and the quality of the food. Delicious. Couldn't get a better setting watching as night draws in over the Mekong. Beautiful.
