Sihome Backpackers Vientiane Reviews
Fun hostel in Vientiane Jan 22, 2014
A few minutes walk from the riverside and central Vientiane, is Sihome Backpackers. This hostel is quite new, and there is a good vibe to the place.
Dorms varying in size from four to eight beds, all allocated names like ”aliens” and ”cowboys”, are all white painted with decorations made by previous visitors. You will get a free night if you make a painting.
I was staying in an eight bed dorm. Lockers are underneath the lower bunk bed. The bed was one of the hardest ones I have ever slept in, but after a few BeerLao I slept like a princess anyway. The dorm had both air conditioning and fan. There are three great showers and two toilets to share in the hallway. If you need your morning shower, it might be a good idea to set your alarm a quarter to the full hour, just to avoid waiting in line.
Breakfast is included and you can choose between pancakes and toast with eggs of your choice. I did not try other food than the breakfast, but it sure looked nice!
Downstairs is a large common area with a simple bar, reception desk, some sofas and a pool table. Outside are wooden tables and chairs. There is also a TV room where you can lay down on pillows and enjoy a movie from their collection. They offer a laundry service.
The staff is nice and helpful, and they will join you for drinks in the evening and take you around to the different bars and clubs.
