  1. This summer i went to Laos and stayed at Kounsavan and Pan’s Place!
    Pan’s place was fine, but really basic with the matresses on the floor.
    Kounsavan was great because of the pool!

  5. I’m definitely bookmarking this. I have recently tried a hostel too and because of my good experience there, I was somewhat encouraged to travel and try the hostels instead of finding a hotel, which is usually the biggest expense when travelling.

      True Carlo. Very similar to the Philippines 🙂 You should definitely try hostels. Cheap but decent and you’ll meet a lot of new friends 🙂 Hope you enjoyed our list of best hostels in Laos 🙂 🙂

  10. From the picture Kounsavan Guest House / Hostel Luang Prabang seems to be a common one but a laid back place or a homey one since you are just like at home resting on a nipa hut.
