Cheapest beds in town
What we say:
Painted bright turquoise, Sabaidy Guesthouse is a beacon for travellers on a very tight budget. Its rooms are the cheapest in town so you'll need to arrive early to have any hope of securing one before they fill up. Dorm rooms have bare bunk-style beds (you'll need to put down a deposit if you want a sheet or towel) or private rooms on the upper floor have one, two or three beds and a fan, but little else. All rooms share bathrooms which do have hot showers but could benefit from more regular cleaning. Lockers are available to store your valuables and the staff offer visa services, onward travel bookings and cheap laundry. Overall, the guesthouse is quite grungy, but it's great for meeting other travellers and you can't argue with the price.Check rates around Vientiane best price guarantee!

I stayed there fews days ago. I think now they only do dorm, and the dorm is 35000k/person but it's really good value : bunk bed with good matress (not the really bad one i used to see in asia...), toilet/shower on corridor and inside the room (i had 4 toilet/shower in my room for 8bunk bed!!), they do female and male dorm, you got hot shower, wireless is working everywhere in the building, it's well located, the staff is nice and helfull, and it was really clean. I think it's a really good deal for people travelling alone as you won't find a single room or double room for this price. so if you are on budget, dorm is the solution!

Not a fan
I know that almost two years have passed since I stayed here but I noticed there were no reviews so I thought I would add my two pence. While the above review makes this guesthouse seem like a hive of activity, when I was there most of the dorm beds were free. The staff were not particularly welcoming but nor were they unwelcoming, simply indifferent to my arrival. The bed, or at least the mattress, was fine but they don't provide sheets. The major negative is that there are no mosquito nets either individual ones for your bed (I guess hard on a bunk) or even on the windows. I sprayed up before I went to bed but still managed to get bitten more than I would have liked. The toilet/shower was unclean to the extent I did not want to use it. On a vaguely positive note the location is pretty good, it was right were the tuktuk dropped us off from the Northern(? - my bus came from VV) bus station. The guesthouse did seem very popular for people booking onward travel. Most of these people were not staying at the guesthouse though, just using it to book buses. I never found out why. I had tried to get into Mixay guesthouse originally but they were full. In fact, many of the guest houses in that area were full by the time our bus arrived. Overall, I would definitely not recommend staying at Sabaidy from my experience there.
