What we say: 4 stars

Opened in 2008, Spicy Laos is the only true hostel in Luang Prabang. It's a dorm-only affair and the prices here are incredibly cheap for Luang Prabang. Cleanliness leaves something to be desired, but no one seems to mind. Other spaces in this heritage house have been converted into a movie room, computer lounge and lots of common areas to chill out with a Beerlao. You're guaranteed to meet people and a message board is littered with activity sign-up sheets. It's one of the few places in town that has a true backpacker vibe. If you're travelling as a couple, you might be better off finding a budget private room elsewhere as the price of two dorm beds is almost as much as many budget rooms in town.
