This is the dirtiest / skidliest hostel I ever stayed at in Asia. It was in Vientiane, Laos. Not really setup for backpackers, hotels were $50US each and I found this “gem”. It felt like I was in the movie fight club aka squatting in an old abandon building.
Funny how you then get to Europe and if you don’t look for a hostel you just may end up at some hotel which is also skidly for 60E, ha. For some reason though spending $50us a night on a hotel room in Laos was just well, mind blowing. If you just arrived maybe but if you’ve been in SE Asia for a while, you’ll know where I’m coming from.
Turns out, ran into some awesome people and had a great time. Oddly enough, it also had WIFI, go figure? The staff was relatively nice and it was in a dumpy part of town. Vientiane is not so much a tourist town but it is definitely developing.
P.S: Don’t forget that 1st Class Eurail Pass if you’re going to Europe, it’s free.
