To get here, head down the side road across from Dok Khoune Hotel and then turn right. This is a classic backpacker favourite with great information on the walls, good room prices, motorbike rental and a lovely family to help you enjoy your time in Phonsavan. The rooms are basic, but you do get a reasonable if saggy bed with quilt, hot shower and Western toilet with bucket flush in a basic bathroom and the pleasure of sharing this place with plenty of other guests in the high season and no one in the low season. We think this place easily bests Kong Keo in the budget end of the market, yet the prices are similar. This is the best budget place in town, but just remember that it is basic.
