Cheapest beds in Lao Cai

The smallest rooms at Hai Yen – or the Binh Dan as it also appears to be known -- are some of the cheapest digs in Lao Cai and will do the job for the budget traveller.
The rooms are certainly nothing fancy but are light and have air-con, although bathrooms are particularly small and damp; upgrade to a larger room if your budget permits. It's located near the bus station so is good for onward travel.
