The bus is comfy! But the road which is currently under construction makes the trip very unpleasant.

Bus Sleeper, Naluang, Jul 13, 2019
For a 20h bus ride it was as comfortable as it could have been. Made well-timed bathroom stops, we got a welcome gift of water and snacks, beds are relatively comfortable (a little short if you're tall). The co-driver really looked out for us.

Bus Sleeper, Naluang, Jul 12, 2019
Beds were very small. We need to sleep in the beds with 2 people. There were no curtains. The drop off time is really strange (4:30) because you can not check in any where.

Good trip, good service, beds quite small for 2 people but not much you can do about that! Actually a quite enjoyable 20 hour bus ride!!

-do not state which bus terminal. Yes, they’re opposite and I was fortunate in having not much luggage as I went to the wrong one. Others had a lot to carry across the main road! -very hard to find the bus counter as one is inclined to look for Naga Travel when it’s actually something like ‘99’ -Company did not and still have not responded to my email sent 5 days before bus. If they had, I could have gone to the right terminal... -snacks were nice -sleeper bus never chanted at Laos border. Just reclining seats -toilet had no light or flush and smelt the whole bus within an hour of departure -driver was smoking and it filtered to the coach through the endless ‘no smoking’ signs... But, as all the other reviews are the same comments, Naga Travel clearly has no intention of doing anything!

Bus Express, Naga Travel, Mar 30, 2019
It was not a sleeper bus. The only quality that could hint to a sleeper bus is that the seat reclined a bit. Only problem was that if you actually did recline the (highly uncomfortable) seat back it hits the person behind you and takes away the already non excisting leg space. In the ticket it said that it could be an older bus but that once you crossed the boarder the bus would change into a sleeper class bus. It did not. The bus ride lasted abou 20-21 hours so you can imagine the joy. I was quite dissapointed as was the whole bus full of people. I am quite short (5'2/157cm) but I left the bus with sore legs, back, neck and arse. I dont want to imagine what it would have been like for someone taller. The thought that kept occurring to me during the journey was: my school bus at home is more comfirtable than this. At least there's wifi on that. On a positive note the staff was very nice, the snacks they gave were good as well and you meet a lot of nice, new people who also think the bus is horrible. That's at least something to bond over.

We didn’t change into a sleeperbus. The bus was okay but not for 20 hours. Very late stop to get dinner.

The staff were nice and very helpful and explained what was going on and sold us SIM cards. Luckily we were a couple so the seat/bed that you have to share was fine, but if you’re on your own may be slightly weird sharing with a stranger as they’re not large.

My schedule changed and I did not go. Arrived in Chiang Mai too late to go. Since it was non-refundable, just lost only money this time.
