Liked: Basic guesthouse with cheap&good food as well as nice river views. Most of the people stay just one night, but they have some tips to explore countryside if you decide for it.

Disliked: One of the dorms is just under a thin floor of upstairs restaurant, so it can be pretty noisy in the evenings. Other thing - maybe nothing to dislike but consider - is that they do not offer free pick up to the ferry border crossing, as it's just don't exist any more, new bridge was opened in the end of 2013.

Liked: The owner of the hotel could not have been more helpful in assisting us to join our Mekong Cruise. She personally took us to the ferry and made sure to pass us into the care of the Cruise rep. The food was good and there were free bikes to use. The hostel operates an 'honesty system' where you have a book to record any thing you use eg food, drinks and then you make up your own bill at the end. The main selling points of the hostel are the unbelievable helpfulness of the owner and the cheap price

Disliked: No windows and poorly fitting shutters yet very poor provision of mosquito nets (ours was full of holes). Ensuite toilet didn't have a door. Poor standard of general cleanliness.

Liked: Right on the Mekong River the views are lovely. The bungalow room we had was spacious with a huge balcony over looking the river. Restaurant was ok - when busy food was good but when quiet not so much. Owners Maleewan and Don very chatty and friendly.

Disliked: Most people only stay for a night before crossing into Laos so can be very quiet. Music festival over the river kept us awake until 2am, but not a major problem for us (and think seasonal).

Disliked: This hostel only provides 1 key per room, which if you're sharing with people you have to leave in a container on the Reception desk.

Liked: The staff was super friendly and they met us at the bus station, even though I didn't expect this

Disliked: The dorm rooms were under the restaurant, and since I went to bed early I could hear people walking on the wooden floor all the time.

Liked: It was pitch back when I arrived in Chiang Khong but the lovely hostel owner picked me up (for free!), which was very much appreciated after a long bus ride from Chiang Mai!The rooms were basic but incredibly cheap and the atmosphere at the hostel was brilliant. Food and drink was tasty and fairly priced and the showers were hot.Finally, the view over the Mekong river into Laos in the morning was brilliant!

Disliked: N/A
