Typical backpacker haunt
What we say:
Backpackers gravitate to Pan’s Place, perhaps drawn by the yin-yang symbol, the canary yellow building or the congregation of other scruffy backpackers chatting away out front. Pan’s Place is not the cheapest, nor does it offer the best value, but this is the place to make new friends, meet new travel mates and have fun in its friendly, chilled out communal atmosphere. Pan's has changed hands over the years but the welcoming vibe, unique buzz and wacky 1970s style remains. The rooms are ultra-basic, and guests can look forward to a small somewhat rustic room with a bed, fan and wet room bathroom with electric heated shower and western toilet. Guests quickly make themselves at home lounging on the terrace playing something from the collection of board games or watching DVDs in the movie lounge. Fast free WiFi is offered, as is free water.
Is this the cheapest dorm in Vang Vieng? No, Nana Guesthouse dorms are cheaper. Is this the cheapest private room in town? No, Dokboua, Domon, Khamphone and Kianethong Guesthouse are all cheaper and infinitely cleaner and nicer. Malany Villa 1’s air-con rooms are actually cheaper than Pan’s fan room. But Pan’s Place is what it is, and if the description excites you, then advanced booking is recommended as this hostel is extremely popular.
