This is one of Pakse’s best options for backpackers (though to be fair, there isn’t much competition in town).
Backpackers can choose from fan-cooled dorms or private rooms with fan or air-con.
The dorm rooms are simply an oversized room with four single beds. There’s no privacy between beds but it’s not crowded and it’s a respectable ratio for the shared ensuite bathroom sporting hot water shower, sink with countertop, mirror and towel rack. The dorm has windows, clean white cotton sheets, an electrical outlet shared between two beds and a long row of cabinets that serve as lockers able to fit a large day pack. You‘ll need to have your own lock.
Private rooms are small and functional, with windows and electric heated shower. This is the most decent backpacker-ish place to be found in Pakse—don’t expect anything lively, it’s just not this town. There’s a terrace out front with tables to hang out in, transport booking services and motorbike rentals are available for 90,000 kip. Some English spoken.
Not surprising, given the value for money and lack of decent options in this price range, Nang Noi Guesthouse is often full; book ahead.
