Staying in Luang Prabang can be pricey so don't get your hopes up!
If you want cheap accommodation go to Ban Wat That area which is known to be less expensive. Do have in mind that the guesthouses in this area fills up quickly during the high season, from November to February!
So try to book a room in advance if you can. If you're not picky about room standard, you can just wing it and you won't need to book any rooms in advance. But be prepared to walk to find a room in the high season.
When I last visited Luang Prabang in Nov 2007, my goal was Chaliny guesthouse according to my Lonely Planet (from 2006), but some backpackers told us that the place had shut down.
So, plan B was to find another one. That didn't turn out to be a problem as there are guesthouses scattered almost everywhere in Luang Prabang.
Here are some suggestions!
Price per night: 300 B
Nice, clean rooms with attached bathroom, hot water and air-con.
This guesthouse was excellent considering its location - the evening market was just 10 meters from the guesthouse, and a couple of steps from Sisavangvong Road and the restaurants.
I could either pay with Kip or Baht. There's a smaller room upstairs which is cheaper, but smaller.
Unfortunately I got a room right by an alley with screaming cats at night. Thank g** for ear plugs!
Where: Phousy 3 is located right outside the monk school near Th Sisavangvong.
Price per night: 10,000 Kip Currency converter
The large room I got was not the cleanest room I've seen, but it was alright. No air-con, but hot water included. At the bar, they show a movie every evening. And not to mention, the staff was helpful and friendly.
I didn't try a dorm room, so I'm afraid that I don't have anything to say about it.
Where: Ban Wat That area, near the Mekong River
Price per night: 60,000 Kip Currency converter
I never stayed here, but I met some British backpackers who stayed here a couple of nights, and they seemed to like the place because of its location.
This guesthouse is pretty run-down, but clean.
Where: Sisavangvong Road
