Spicy Lao Backpackers
For guaranteed good times
What we say:
Past their sign saying Welcome Home!, SpicyLao looks like a shanty town on the banks of the river with its hodge-podge of bungalows, open-air showers, and a big bamboo dorm. As a bona-fide backpacker haven, Spicy Laos has its pluses and minuses. The good: free WiFi, free breakfast, cosy communal areas, movies, friendly folk and organised activities like exploring the local caves or drinking Beerlao around a bonfire until the wee hours of the night. One of the minuses is comfort, and the tree-house dorm is stuffed to the rafters with 14 beds accessed by wooden ladders. The four-bed female dorm or bungalow offer more space and privacy, but they still have to share the grungy toilets. If you've come to Vang Vieng to meet people and party, you're guaranteed to enjoy it here.

Bugs and things
Not trying to be rude... just honest: Stayed 2 nights, and that was 2 too many. Bugs everywhere and my body is full of red bumps from all the bites... next stop MALARIA clinic? I hope not GREAT VIBE with all the other travellers but the cleanliness and security is terrible

could do better with your money
Travelfish sum it up pretty well. Probably good if you are by yourself and want to meet people to go tubing with although in Vang Vieng its not exactly hard to find people to party with! My only complaint about the dorm was that it was really hot and stuffy (no fans). Can't imagine what its like in hot season. You can probably pay a similar amount elsewhere for your own room.
