Nam Houn Guesthouse
Stylish bungalows on the Nam Houn
What we say:
Little-known Namhoun has some really great bungalows with thatched walls, grass roofs and stylish indoor/outdoor bathrooms with Western toilets and really hot showers. Each bungalow has a private balcony, with views of both the Nam Houn and Nam Ou. Rooms closer to the main entrance have garden views, but are only used when the rooms closer to the rivers are full. WiFi is available in the reception area, but it doesn't extend far enough to reach the rooms down by the river, but those with garden views will get a strong enough signal. The rooms here are a step below those at Sunrise Guesthouse, but the noise situation is favourable, making this a good balance between cost, location and quality. There isn't a restaurant, but great Lao food and river views are minutes away at Sunset and there are a bunch of other restaurants 100 metres walk away. A great choice.

Best place in town!
We stayed at Namhoun Guesthouse for a total of four nights during our trip in Laos. It is a family-run place, and the woman in charge is just so sweet. She doesn't speak much English but has a very kind disposition. When we were the only people in the guesthouse, she even gave us extra veggies she bought from the market as a snack. She also has a slew of adorable puppies running around the place right now! The bungalows are rustic but spotlessly clean. The balconies have their own hammock and chairs perfect for reading and relaxing. It's just off the main road near some good restaurants. For $6/night, it really can't be beat!

This was probably the best value guesthouse of our entire stay in Laos. Rooms were basic but clean, set just off the river in a peaceful loacation and came complete with hammock! At 40,000 kip $3, a night they put the Riverside to shame. The family are in the process of building new bungalows with riverviews so anyone going soon should check them out first!
