Pak Beng, a small Mekong village, seems to live mainly from the travellers coming up-or downstream with the slowboats. All of them have to stay a night over in Pak Beng and all of them want a cheap clean room; so better book in advance, even if this might be a bit more expensive than booking locally - in case that rooms are available.
The Monsovanh Guesthouse, not far away from the slow boat landing station, is clean and cheap. Rooms upstairs in the first floor are a bit better. Rooms are small with a fan (no A/C) and a clean bathroom with shower, hot water and toilet. If your room lacks a chair, desk or a locker, never mind. You might most probably stay anyhow only a night here. Downside is the noise: walls are really thin and the noise will actually not contribute to your sleeping comfort.
The Guesthouse is located on the small “main road” with a lot of good restaurants and an internet shop.
