Honestly the accommodation is pretty basic here, our room wasn't even sealed as half the window was missing and the toilet/shower was in a closet sized space. Didn't sleep a wink as it was over the back alley for the bar which was super noisy and the adjacent building site starts at 7am. The bar downstairs is the main reason... More

Felt so welcome here. Everyone who works here is just so smiley, helpful and nice. They felt reliable/responsible and my room felt safe and was clean. The food downstairs is good and the location (this area is one of the better ones) too. If you bargain, a tuk-tuk to the riverside or to the Russian Market will cost around 2... More

Quite simply, the bar is owned by a great guy named Kok and the guesthouse is a totally different owner and business. Please don't confuse the two and paint the bar with the same brush as the accommodation. Kok is constantly investing in and improving his bar whereas the guesthouse owner is not! Hope this helps future reviewers to write... More

First quite sure we got ripped off here by quite a lot for our twin room. Room 6 (attic room) avoid if wanting to stay here. The beds are hard with every metal spring at the surface to dig into you. No hot water. And the "windows" are wholes in the bricks. Not sure about the other rooms in this... More

Having arrived late at night in Pnom Penh, the Blue Dog was our final destination for the day. We checked in at the reception with a most uninterested lady who showed us the dorm. It was bad: a very low ceiling (about 6 ft), horrible beds with all kinds of stains on the sheets and in the dorm it was... More

Room was clean and decent with fan and ensuite. Location was very good, with restaurants and pubs in walking distance, and the riverside a 5 minute tuktuk ride away. The only con was the noise since our room was the closest to the pub underneath, but this didn't ruin the experience in any way. Great value for $6!

Wasn't expecting much anyway from the reviews but there are far better places to stay in the city! We arrived having booked in advance only to find our room double booked! The woman was apologetic but this seemed to happen rather a lot! She tried to fob us off to another hotel, which had terrible reviews on here so we... More

This is a typical hostel above a pub. If you don't mind cold shower, music until late and ok standards and like staying up late, drinking Chang and playing pool, that's your place. Rooms are rather tiny but cheap 8$ (for a double room). Food is all right Be careful about tuk tuk drivers waiting outside, they often ask 4times... More

The blue dog guest house and bar downstairs was a great introduction to the kindness and friendly nature of the Khmer people. After staying at a nearby hostel, we came across the guesthouse after a night out drinking. The staff were so friendly we decided to change our accomodation and extended our stay in Phnom Penh. Although part of the... More

We didn't stay in it, only had a lunch: Pasta Marinara for $3.75 and Chief Salad for $3.5 . Draft beer cost $0.75 during happy hours (7 a.m. - 7 p.m.) and a little bit expansive later. Food was rather good, well cooked and served. Though not so much seafood in my pasta and bacon in salad, portions where big.... More
