Deplorable. Worse than a submerged horse stable Having not been able to get a room at the nearby Banlung Balcony Guesthouse round the corner, myself and two others walked over to the Backpackers "Pad" which we could see from a distance. Granted, from a far it looked like a dilapidated slum with overgrown nettles and dirt around it, but I... More

Pay extra -no mosquito net (in a jungle province) -friendly staff, english aint that good though -------------------------------- Longer story: Me and a group... More

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

It was $2 so I guess you get what you pay for.... The only positive point about this place is the... More

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!
