It can be hard to choose a great hostel when there are so many choices.
This ancient city in northern Laos happens to have over 35 hostels on offer. From backpacker vibes to chilled atmosphere.
Laos is a great destination for budget travellers, too.
It’s amazing what can be enjoyed for a few coins. Think swimming pools and free breakfast.
Average price for a bed: Hostels in Laung Prabang are CHEAP and cost 3€ – 5€ per night for a bed in a dorm. A private room starts from 10€ up to 14€ per night. This is a rough average just to give you an idea.
Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
Private rooms: Unfortunately, it seems private rooms are not really common in Luang Prabang hostels. As you’ll see, none of our top 3 hostels have private rooms.
However, many of the mixed dorms have great beds including privacy curtains and lockers.
We suggest booking a small 4-6 bed dorm if you like quiet and privacy. Female solo travellers can opt for female-only dorms.
