Sailomyen Cafe & Hostel Reviews

Sailomyen Cafe & Hostel is a modern, clean hostel in a central location within Vientiane. Many travelers are either on a visa run from Thailand or transiting through between northern Laos and Thailand. The hostel is very secure, Wi-Fi is excellent, and the cafe and hostel are both nice places to spend time. Check-out is not until noon, and the hostel has luggage storage as an option for anyone with extra time.

The Location

The hostel is in a prime location, being a short walk from That Dam, Patuxay Monument, and the Morning Market. It is also not far (fifteen-minute walk) from Chao Anouvong Park and the popular Night Market, which is just off the Mekong River. The Thai Consulate is a twenty-minute walk or a short tuk tuk/bicycle ride away, and the airport is a fifteen-minute drive.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The mattresses and sheets at Sailomyen are of high quality and very comfortable. All spaces in the hostel are kept in pristine condition, and maintained throughout the day. Air conditioning keeps the dorms very cool all day and night. Medium-sized lockers are in good condition. Beds are loft-style, so there is no creaking or shaking of bunks. They also have their own lights and charging ports.

Bathrooms are very clean and kept up throughout the day. There is one bathroom unit for women and another for men, along with one restroom for both cafe and hostel guests on the ground floor. Showers have strong water pressure, water heaters, and are spacious. Towels are free, and soap/shampoo are provided in the showers.

Common Spaces

Reception is at the back of the cafe, which provides an extra measure of security before anyone can go up to the dorms. Here it is possible to find tourist information, good Wi-Fi, and help with arranging transportation or other plans. On the third floor, there is a lovely outdoor lounge area with a view. The cafe is a classy, welcoming space where many staying at the hostel pass time, and it even has a book exchange. The atmosphere is social but slightly reserved. There is no kitchen for guests to use, but breakfast is free and delicious, with a couple options from which to choose!


Sailomyen is a very high-quality hostel. It is a nice place to retreat to, while also being in a great location for sightseeing. It is clear before even walking in the doors that Sailomyen knows what guests desire, and it excels at fulfilling those hopes.
