Good budget option

Located in bamboo-walled rooms above the popular breakfast and dinner buffet spot near the dock, Phetdavanh offers very simple rooms with shared cold water bathrooms.
It’s really a place for people on an extremely tight budget as for just 15,000 kip extra you can get a great room with private bathroom, a hammock and river views. Still, this is a tidy place with a friendly family at a price that can’t be beat in Muang Ngoi unless asking to stay with a family in their private residence (which is often a viable option). Rooms can get noisy when people in the village wake up at daybreak.
