Great dorms, overpriced private rooms
Sabaidy 2 has been a backpacker haunt for years and really lives up to its backpacker reputation with a vibe not found anywhere else in Pakse.
The dorm rooms are what everyone comes for, but they're in such high demand that they're rarely available and you're left with the overpriced private rooms with share bathroom. In fact, the private rooms are so overpriced that we recommend going elsewhere if you can't secure a dorm as there are some great deals to be had at places like the Lankham or Sedone River. What's worse is that Sabaidy charges a fee for WiFi use – the only place in Pakse we saw with this policy. For many, this will bump the price of their accommodation up substantially. Come here for a dorm room and a good backpacker atmosphere, but if the dorms are full, head elsewhere.
