One of the better choices
Up the main road on the right about 300 metres from the dock, Vatsana Guesthouse (also with signs spelled Vassana and Vasana) has an old building with a more recent addition attached.
The old building houses bare basic rooms with shared bathrooms which are a step up from Donevilasack’s rooms with shared bathrooms. Vatsana’s new building sports decent rooms with private bathrooms, TVs and air-con. WiFi is available throughout the guesthouse and the owners are really friendly. The only minor complaint is the noisy restaurant across the road is a favourite for travellers passing through town in the high season and it will keep you awake until closing time at about 23:00.

Cindy Fan is a Canadian writer/photographer and author of So Many Miles, a website that chronicles the love of adventure, food and culture. After falling in love with sticky rice and Mekong sunsets, in 2011 she uprooted her life in Toronto to live la vida Laos. She’s travelled to over 40 countries and harbours a deep affection for Africa and Southeast Asia. In between jaunts around the world, she calls Laos and Vietnam home where you’ll find her traipsing through rice paddies, standing beside broken-down buses and in villages laughing with the locals.
