  • Description


    Hi, My name is Pingpong. I abandoned the past from Bangkok Thailand after was living and working there for more than 10 years. I came to Laos to start a new life in Thakhek city. I love to meet new people from around the world so I decided to open a hostel".

    Our hostel located in Thakhek city,center of Laos. In other word, it is in the middle between Vientiane,The capital, and Pakse, big city in south of Laos. Our town have famous motorbike loop called "Thakhek loop" or "the loop". Most of backpacker that visit our town is to do motorbike loop. The hostel is really small. We renovate abandoned old house and turned it to "feel like home hostel ". Only 14 beds in 3 dormitory rooms. Hostel is fully book almost every day. So you can meet a lot of people from many countries around the world. Grab some beer Lao and start conversation, share your travel experience with hostel friends and laugh everyday when you are here :)

    There is another famous rock climbing area, many people said it is the best in south east Asia. There are many routes, almost 400 routes. Start from beginning to advance level and it not far from town. Only 20 minutes by Motorbike. There are many rock climbers from Dec to Mar. If you do rock climber, this is paradise for you. Even if you are beginner and never climb before you still can go and try :)

    More over, there are tons of cave around you can explore by yourself. Just prepare you gear, grab motorbike and 15 minutes from town you can find many caves and start your own adventure. last but not least, swimming spot suck as blue lagoon also possible for you to enjoy your time in sunny day :) and it not far from town.

    Our hostel have large common area in garden and tree house with hammock. You can chill and relax when you feel lazy and don't want to go any where :)
