Stayed a couple of nights and thought it was pretty decent, especially considering the price. Friendly, hard working staff with good english. Booked a jungle trek through the hostel and it was by far the best thing I've done in Cambodia. Highly recommended. Was lucky to have Anita as our guide, really can't say enough good things about her. Extremely... More

For 4$/night, my room was clean and the bed comfortable. The shower in the shared washroom did not work, but a cup and a big bucket was at our disposition. I found out it was a pretty good way to get shower! (But no hot water) Bummer, there was no paper toilet at all. I asked a first time and... More

I stayed in a dorm which was filthy. Bathroom appeared not to have been cleaned for weeks, there was rubbish under my bed from previous guests, and the floor is uneven so I kept tripping over in the night! It was $2 so I guess you get what you pay for.... The only positive point about this place is the... More

We stayed one Night in Backpackers Pad and we did a wonderful 3 days jungle trekking, it was great. But in the meanwhile when we were on the trekking, the owner of Backpacker Pad moved our luggage (with valuable things) from a closed store room to the stuff room, which was unlocked! When we came back i recognized, that they... More

The manager was incredibly rude. I do not know why he was so rude. He seemed friendly at first and the only reason I can think of for his change of attitude was that I was not booking a tour due to an injury I have sustained. I stayed in a double the first night nd moved in a dorm... More

Ok, this place is 5 dollars a night. I cannot complain much beyond the fact we moved to a place for 7 and got hot water and a much cleaner room. Staff is really nice and if you are trying to stay as budget as possible this is a great way to do it. Just expect to get what you... More

Nothing here worked! Broken toilets, electricity was down and the loud generator kept cutting out. Impossible to recharge phone or have a shower. Broken bikes that they tried to rent out. The place was filthy and about a km from town centre. There is a backpacker atmosphere here though, so that was nice if thats what you're after.

I stayed here about a month ago and found the staff very sweet and they try very hard. For the price you really can't knock it. Great value, good people and delicious food... Though a lock on the bathroom door in the shared dorm and a shower that actually works would be great, that's my one complaint. Overall nice place,... More

I'm not sure if the previous reviews are about the same place where we stayed for few nights. The manager was very friendly when offering us the place but that's where his friendliness ended. In the evening he had a private party with friends and family after which he was not in a state any more to be dealing with... More
