Thought we would trust in lonely planet for a bar recommendation one friday night... Ba-bow! Lame. Claimed by LP to be the most happening hostel bar in Phnom Penh, its a massive fail - unless you like sitting down, enjoying the free wifi, spending 0 on drinks, and just playing with facebook... PLENTY of better places for a beer/cocktail/shot/whatever within... More

I've been coming to Top Banana every month or so over the past year. Since I've been coming the place has added security cameras and revamped a lot of the building with more plans of improvement in the pipeline! The food is great and well priced, Ceaser Salad is my favorite! The staff are really friendly and helpful and you... More

Nice a/c cooled rooms. Rooms, bath rooms and common areas are clean. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, who contributed to the great atmosphere in the bar. Good food. Location is fairly good to the palace and park.

First of all, people complained that the hostel is party or noisy, you should know 2 things. First if you read all the comment here, people tell that it's a nice party hostel. At 1am they close the bar so if you wanna sleep after it's okay. For the noise in the morning,everywhere in Cambodia they are building at the... More

Stayed in twin room for 14 dollars. Tidy and clean room with hot water private shower. The bars upstairs is fun and a good place to meet new people. Beerpong and other drinking games are available. Also tours can be booked there. Downside to the hostel is the noise. The bar pumps music until 1 oclock. In the mornings construction... More

Top Banana does what is says on the tin. I stayed for 2 nights in a decent sized room with double bed and fan. Good value at $10 per night - stay in the dorms if you're on a tight backpacker budget. Agreed, it gets a bit noisy at night, but one expects this in a busy Asian City. There... More

Well it was a good place to meet people. I food was good. The music is good. The bar is nice with a good view of street life below. But the rooms are nothing to write home about. But all and all it was a good experience.

We stayed in a dorm which was cheap but the air con was fantastic and the beds were very large singles, almost doubles! There is music played in the bar till 1 o'clock most nights so not... More

We stayed 2 nights in this lovely guesthouse, which is very close to the main attractions. The double room was very clean and the AC saved us from the heat outside. The food was really good- try the pumpkin soup. Dispite everything, the prices are quite expensive - 18$ per room and modest dinner for 15$.
