Friendly and accommodating new management”

Staff, location, dorms with both AC and fans

Intro - I had a pleasant stay of several days at Niny Backpackers (I extended several times). I soon made myself at home there and made friends with the staff's adorable and inquisitive daughter. Staff - I am told that there was a recent change in management (a few weeks ago), which may mean that older reviews regarding the staff are no longer valid. I found the current staff to be friendly and helpful. Location - The place is well situated near a night market and amidst a lot of tourist activity, as well as walking distance to a number of coffee shops, the National Museum and a nice walkway along the river. In general Food in Laos is rather expensive compared to neighboring Thailand; there are a number of nearby places catering to tourists (which may further inflate the prices). For more local (and affordable food) you may need to have a bit of a walk. There is also a nice therapeutic herbal steam room nearby which I also recommend visiting (which may help reverse some of the effects of the large quantities of pork fat you are likely to eat whilst in Laos). Dorms - I stayed in the supersized dorm with countless beds but felt quite comfortable (likely because there were not too many people staying there at the time I was there). I particularly liked the thin firm mattresses and slept very well on them (but I am slightly ascetic by nature).

Awesome stay although just for one night ”

Niny was good and kind person, she let us check in early although we reach there at 8am. The dorm room was big enough, we have a good stay and met a lot of travelers at here. Niny helped us book the train ticket to Bangkok with good price and she was helpful, she always ready to help you if you have any problem. Her daughter was cute and wasn't feel afraid of us. Definitely I will come back to here again. Thank you Niny!

Still can't quite believe how great Niny was; perfect location, very clean, good A/C, and SO cheap. If I'm ever back in Vientiane, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. (Plus the standard tickets/laundry/rental services of course)

I stayed at Mixay guest house on my first day in Vientiane. I just wanted to cry as soon as I got off the taxi and saw what it looked like. I just didn't know Niny was down the street from Mixay.... way better! I'd definitely go back
