4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great private rooms in this place - spacious, clean and modern with good AC. Great communal areas downstairs with bar and pool. Attracts a young and sociable crowd. The wifi is a bit annoying, having to sign in repeatedly. The tuk-tuk mafia that hangs out the front is quite aggressive and even got abusive when we walked down the street... More

88 was my first hostel experience, and what a one at that! We've stayed here twice now in our trip to Cambodia. The rooms are clean, the bar is well stocked and the food is amazing! Highly recommend the lok lak, amok, pulled pork sandwich, club sandwich and the breakfasts are really good! I've eaten a lot of eggs in... More

Stayed here for two nights and it was one of the better guesthouses in Cambodia that we stayed in. Pool was amazing after a long day in the heat and the drinks were always good. We stayed in a twin room and it suited just fine. Everything was clean as expected. It was just a shame we didn't stay there... More

Living in Cambodia, I had the chance to spend many nights at 88 while visiting Phnom Pehn. It's a great hostel, with good dorms that offer private bathroom for a decent price. The private rooms are also nice, with a bathroom and a big bed, but a bit too pricey ($22-24) for offering the basic. Nevertheless I recommend the 88... More

Stayed here with friends for a week and was a really enjoyable stay with a good downstairs area. The bar area served good food and was a great place to meet other travellers mainly from UK and Europe and the pool was really good in the heat. Had to get tuk Tuks to get to places around the city, but... More

Such a great price, we wernt really backpacking on our travels but thought we would give it a go, and it was great!! Clean and tidy with a awesome social/bar area. Rooms were nice and spacious. Pool was out of order when we stayed but looked good. Staff were super helpful and trust worthy, lots of helpful information.

Thank you for your awesome feedback based on your recent stay with us. So sorry about the pool. As part of our routine cleaning cycle, every year or so we have to completely empty the pool, give it through clean and replace the water. This usually takes us a day but must have fallen during your stay. Thanks for your... More

I had stayed here for 2 nights during my travels around Cambodia, on entering you greeted by a number of plants and you feel like you are in a tropical jungle, the music in the bar area is nice and keeps up the party atmosphere, seeing the pool was a welcome relief, a chance to cool down from the heat....

Thanks for your feedback. We also like to think of Eighty8 as an little oasis and a welcome break from the bustling city of Phnom Penh so I am pleased you felt this when you arrived :) There is little we could do about your bed situation. As in most dorm rooms, there are beds that are near the entrance... More

Really fun hostel, we have collectively ticked off most of the cocktails on the list, which was great to escape the hustle of the city and relax on the lounges. We also went on the mekong cruise through 88, which was great value and a lot of laughs. Staff spoke great english and were happy to help. Eighty8 is great!
