What we say: 4 stars

Friendship Guesthouse is one of the best and most popular cheapies in town despite being super basic. The beds come with old clean sheets and blankets and the bathrooms come with hot water and Western toilet but there are maintenance issues in every room with door handles broken, holes in doors and fixtures missing. Incredibly, despite the maintenance issues, the rooms still feel quite clean and liveable. The WiFi works sometimes and rarely in the rooms unless you have a super powerful laptop. The rooftop is a great place to watch the sun set over the Mekong, usually with a handful of people drinking beer – it's actually one of the better places in town to grab a view of the sunset. All in all, a good budget place.
