This guesthouse offer the freewifi, it's clean and it's a good deal for low budget rooms.
However, the hot water is shared so don't expect to have real hot water unless you take your shower around 11PM, in the morning it's nearly cold even at 7AM. The toilet make noise everytime someone use it in the nightboor's room (lak of ventilation) so if you're using it at this time, don't be surprise if bubbles pop up and wet your butt :p
You can have also free coffee and tea but the water is'nt really hot and no sugar.
Overall i would recommend this place, especialy for just one night after or before the trekking, because it's quiet most of the time (not in the main road) and the owner is helpfull with correct english speaking.
If you want to eat, i recommend also the "Papaya restaurant" juste after the corner, their Luang Namtha fried rice is so damn good and the owner (+waiter/waiteresse) are really funny! Good place for cheap breakfast also !

... Buddhists or spirit people and the Akha people are spirit people. They believe that there are many spirits and deeds have to be done to keep the spirits happy. On a recent trip to this village, some tourists touched the sacred entry gate and this was thought to be really bad for the spirits. The tour agency that brought these tourists had to pay the village money and provide them with a pig and a chicken for ceremonial purposes. We told Zouk that we wanted to make sure we ...
... ve read that you get the best rate by paying in US dollars). Once we got our visas, we passed through immigration and were in Laos! Another tuk tuk costing $6 got us to the Laos border town of Huay Xai where we had booked a night at a guest house. We met a Canadian couple, a Dutch guy, and a Spanish woman on the tuk tuk and shared some stories. It was a nice group.
We found our guest house ...
... land to both sides. We had come out of the protected area now and so there wasn't as much forest. Instead there were a lot of rice fields and rubber trees which the village harvest for the Chinese. The swing was right by where we entered, the swing is really important to Akha people and no one is allowed to touch it. They hold a swing festival each year where everyone in the village has a go, it is something to do with the fertility of the rice. Soup told us about the ...
... training must have consisted of "put all of your weight on every part of the trekkers body even it is some silly part like a kneecap then grab hold of the toes and yank them from their sockets." "Pushing on the muscles hard enough to move them to the other side of the bones is a job well done." When we were not grimacing in pain, we were laughing hysterically. Can you say free until they pull out the bracelets yet again and shove them in your face until you want ...
