Owned and operated by local historian and raconteur Mr. Sousath, this is a good, low-luxe, but comfortable base for exploring the jars. Built pell-mell in a series of additions, the rooms vary and the decor runs the gamut from comfortable wooden lodge to musty cell. Ask to see your room before checking in. A few luxe setups have floor-to-ceiling windows and fine views. Bathrooms are guesthouse basic with fickle solar showers. Good Lao and Western food can be found in the popular lobby restaurant, whose walls are covered with land mines and various other objects of destruction. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the convenient offices of Sousath Travel are the best place in town to arrange for a guide. Don't miss any chance to chat with Mr. Sousath.
