Sisavangthana Rd, Ban Xieng Mouane, Luang Prabang T: (071) 254 426
Conveniently located on a quiet backstreet sandwiched between the Mekong and the main road, Namsok Guesthouse 3 is a budget-friendly place with free albeit spotty WiFi and it’s as cheap as it gets in Luang Prabang for a room with a private bathroom.
The rooms contain springy beds, some have old satellite TVs, a couple of pieces of furniture and large hot water bathrooms with wash basins. Some of the bathrooms feature creative design and plumbing typical of budget guesthouses in Laos, with the showerhead positioned so that the water goes on everything but you. This quirk aside, Namsok 3 is one of the best budget options that also allows guests to choose air-con.
