This place is great value for money - the bar and pool are really cool, with bar food and drinks being cheap, varied and tasty; it has a great vibe, with travellers hanging out here all day. The reception staff are really helpful, helping you book tours and coaches. The rooms have aircon, good bathrooms and are spacious.

The place is very well looked after and kept really clean. The bar is relatively cheap and the food is also very tasty. The pool is probably the best bit and is open 6-10 every day. Brilliant for when it's way too hot to do anything else in the day. The hostel also had kittens which were very playful and... More

Thanks for your comments and I am delighted that you loved your stay here with us at Eighty8. The pool is also my favorite thing about the place! Okay... maybe the kittens and then the pool ;) Thanks again and enjoy the rest of your travels :) More

Really enjoyed this hostel, was feeling knackered at this point in my trip and this was the perfect place to chill out for a few days. The beds are really comfortable, with good bathrooms and the best hostel wi-fi I came across in South East Asia. There's a great common area with lots of comfortable places to sit, a pool... More

First thing I have to say is the whole first floor is a bar/pool area. While the prices are great and the pool is cool, they play music that steadily gets louder nonstop from 9am-closing (midnight I think). By 7pm having conversations are hard. The sound pollution to the rooms is definitely noticeable. If they turned down the music a... More

The pool and lounge make this place: it's a great place to meet fellow backpackers or just cool off after travels or a long day taking in Phnom Penh. Keep in mind it's a little set off from the main backpacker area. But an abundance of tuk tuks help scooter you around father out, and we walked to most places... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us your thoughts from your recent stay with us. We are located a short 5 min walk from the traditional center of the city, Wat Phnom. We are in more of an local Khmer area which gives you a more authentic Cambodian experience of the city. If you would like to stay... More

This was a good social hostel,the restaurant/ bar was nice, you can try loads of different dishes both Cambodian and western and it's quite cheap. The staff is very helpful. We stayed for 2nights in room 1 (6bed mixed dorm), the bathroom wasn't the cleanest place in the world and was a bit old so we used the 4showers that... More

Undeniably the facilities here are great. Clean, a good night's sleep, wifi, a pool, good food and drink. However, we really felt like a nuisance to the staff when we asked them questions and were told to read the posters as opposed to having a short, polite conversation to help us which would have been more welcoming. But this hostel... More

Thank you for your feedback. I am really sorry that this one-off incident has lead you to conclude that all of our staff are "poor" in terms of service as I can guarantee that this isnt the case. I am very disappointed that you had this experience as we rarely get feedback like this. Usually it is the complete opposite,... More

This place had a great young atmosphere with a great communal area. Loved the pool and cocktails on the hot days. Didn't rate it 5 stars because the rooms and bathrooms were not great like SLA Boutique Hostel. But the ambience was much better!

Glad you enjoyed it and really picked up on the vibe. Please compare like for like. Our dorm beds aren't $16.50 like the SLA Hostel either. Safe travels. More

We stayed in a dorm room for a couple of nights. Unfortunately we visited Phnom Penh during Khmer New Year, which means that everything in the city is closed, except for some Chines restaurant that we found. This meant that we spent the days in the hostel. They have a swimming pool, a pool table and some nice couches to... More
