We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff were very helpful and made our stay all the more special. The restaurant, which is on the property is being run by 4 ladies who dish up the MOST AMAZING Food!!! The driver, Sa at, is a sweet man who knows his way around Phnom Penh.... More

It is our privilege to stay in You Khin Guesthouse and an honour to know Muoy, the founder of the guesthouse and Seametrey village school that she founded. You Khin guesthouse is filled with warmth and love, with loads of laughter and fun of children around. We had such a lovely time in Phnom Penh, the best part is really... More

I went to YKH with a few girlfriends for a long weekend in PP and we absolutely loved it. We were initially attracted by the charity aspect, wanting to contribute to local economy rather than to some international chain, but I would probably go there anyway as it's just so nice. Rooms were big and clean and the swimming pool... More

We have stayed at YKH a lot over the past few years and are always drawn back to the lovely and relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed lovely and simple meals from the ladies in the kitchen and ice cold drinks after days exploring the city. Looking forward to our next Cambodian adventure, we we once again return to YKH.

What a thoroughly charming guest house - such a surprise. Lovely friendly atmosphere, comfortable well-appointed rooms, good food and close to everything one would want to see in the city. One of the good things is that the guest house is used to support the education of children in the adjoining school who would otherwise miss out. I would certainly... More

Having booked You Khin based on tripadvisor ratings, I was expecting it to be nice. What I got far exceeded all my expectations. This place is beautifully appointed. The room was an excellent size, VERY clean, and had everything one would need for a great stay.

What a lovely place to relax away from the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh. A little hard for tuktuk drivers to find so mark it on your map to make it easier. Beautiful staff and gorgeous clean rooms. A real oasis in the busy city.

I have stayed twice at You Khin and had a great experience both times. Rooms are spacious, basic, and clean, and some have very beautiful bathrooms with natural light and showers on stone surrounded by colourful pebbles. Lovely! The office staff speak very good English and are very polite and friendly. On the recent visit, I asked for transportation from... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You Khin House is a architect designed house, built on three floors. The guest rooms are on the first and second floor around a central staircase lit and ventilated by a "wind tower" with sky light. The architecture sets it apart from other buildings in Phnom Penh and is nestled in a green patio, guarded from view by the traditional wooden house at the front. Only when the front door is open and one has stepped in the hallway can the house be seen. All rooms and all parts of the hotel have natural light. The ground floor is a gallery displaying original paintings by the late artist and architect of the house - You Khin. His work are also displayed on all the floors.The swimming pool is used by children at the Seametrey Children's Village school next door between 9am and 2pm. A bright and airy communal lounge on the second floor has a pool table, a flat screen cable TV and a small library. The owner lives on the top floor. The volunteers at the school live in the wooden house at the front. Some staff members and children live in the school next door.You Khin House is a community. It is for people who want to experience life in Cambodia at its best and get to know local people and interact with others. ... more   less
