The best review you can give to anywhere is if you'd go back. And i would go back here. Despite the rather rickety stairs leading up to the reception/bar area it's worth it. Very nice room with a/c and a fan and a nice bathroom. Currently undergoing some major renovations which can be noisy but i'm sure this is only... More

Top Banana is a cool spot to stay in PP! Pros: 4 bed dorm is so worth it and is the same price as the bigger mixed dorms, easy to find, good location, tuktuk drivers are always outside, awesome chillout area upstairs. Cons: wifi only works in the bar area, tuktuk drivers are always outside, showers are so so.

The prices are very low and you get what you pay for. Some mosquitos and a communal shower for most rooms. Lots of cool people from around the world wind up here and that is the main attraction. Outings and Barbeques are arranged regularly.

I stayed here for a few nights in July in a single room. The room was really nice (big and clean) and the location is good (there are a lo of nice restaurants in that area). A drawback was that the staff was neither very friendly nor helpful and the internet didn't work in the room.

This was in an ideal location and recommended for travellers. The bar is good to chill out in during the day and also to drink in at night. It gets busy with other guests and travellers staying in other hotels so it is a sociable place. It also has nice restaurants and bars on its doorstep. The room was clean... More

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
