I got my own room and obviously more expensive for that, and for what I paid probably better in a cheap guesthouse as they didn't include soap or ever clean the room the entire five nights I was there, I think it would have been good if they at least change bins. The wifi didn't work in the room either,... More

Wasn't too impressed with Phnom Penh but this place is great. Good location, chilled out vibe and very helpful staff. Very good common area and bar. Will definitely stay again when I pass back through Phnom Penh.

I feel really torn writing this review as I genuinely feel that my poor experiences of this hostel are down to the downright inconsiderate behaviour of other people who have stayed there, rather than the staff and facilities. First off, when I checked in at 1.30, I was taken down to my bed in the 8 bed dorm and the... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review, we are sorry that your experience was jaded by other guests. We ask all guests to keep the dorm rooms locked and this was like you say down to the guest who should not have gone back to the room to relax, we will keep a closer eye on it from... More

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.

Top B, General Manager at Top Banana Guesthouse, responded to this review

Thanks so much for your comments. Sorry about the tuk tuks, it's pretty difficult to stop the constant harassment from them and moto drivers all over Cambodia, they drive us all crazy. We do keep them from being directly outside the guesthouse entrance to stop them bothering guests. We hope to see you back soon. More

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.

Thanks for you review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. The dorm rooms each have 2 bathrooms but all other private rooms apart from one budget room have their own en suite facility and all with hot showers. Come back soon for more fun and BBQs :) More

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

It seems like you may have walked into the wrong bar because Top Banana is never quiet on a Friday night! In fact we have just built a new wall on one side of the bar to reduce noise pollution from other establishments. We are a guesthouse and a rooftop bar so our guests start to fill up the bar... 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
