Right on the riverbank, the Nam Ou Guesthouse is very popular with backpackers.

It has a large, pleasant balcony with river views which serves as a restaurant and is a great place to sit and relax. Try not to look down below the balcony and the areas in the proximity of the rest of the houses as this seems to be a convenient rubbish dumping ground and is quite unsightly. Choose from a variety of rooms, all not so large but quite clean. Some have bathrooms inside, some don’t but all have hot water and Western toilets which is a bit of an upgrade from previous visits. The best thing about this place is the backpacker vibe and you are quite likely to meet like-minded travellers in this place hanging out on the communal balcony. Just don’t expect much in the way of room quality.
