Start and finish of The Loop

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Mar 2013
This lodge is a great place to start and get ready for The Loop. You'll meet people who just finished it and people who will be your travel buddies. You can leave your bag there and book a room for when you return. The food quite nice for a reasonable price.
The logbook is a must as there are many useful tips for you to take with you when you do the Loop. The rooms are basic but clean, however the bathrooms and toilets could use s lick of paint and a proper clean.
Friendly staff who speak English very well.

          We stayed here for three nights as we made our way to kong lo caves and back.

          First the room we had was massive and clean with a huge bathroom, fan and hot water. We ended up having to take the mosquito net down as it blocked the fan so much we almost drowned in our own sweat. The staff are non emotional, very rare to get a smile out of them. The food is fine, just like anywhere in Laos, fine. Wifi also decent closer to the restaurant but not so much in the bedrooms.

          The real benefit of here though is the travel books for 'the loop' and Mr Koo's bike rental. We went with him and he was very helpful, letting us get used to the bike the night before and giving us the keys with no charge.

          Location is good for the bus station (4km) but not for the centre, takes at least 30 mins to walk and jumbo drivers will overcharge you.

          We were very annoyed when we cam to pay as they advertise being able to take credit cards all over the place and then use a ridiculous exchange rate to dollars as well as the standard 3% on top for CC. We were quite annoyed as we were about to set off to the caves but they didn't budge or care, never really worked that out in Laos.

          Anyway, if you plan to do the loop drop in to read the travel books but it really isn't a good location to do anything after dark.

          Nice, quiet place with large, clean rooms. Negative is that it is quite far from the town centre and the river.
