I was only at this hostel on a stop over from Ho Chi Minh City to Siam Reap so only stayed for about 6 hours, however, I didn't want to leave. The beds in the dorm are genrous - doubles from memory and no bunks however rooms are quite loud from the music in the bar below. Pool and bar... More

I stayed here just one night. I sent them my details for a free pick up and that was perfect. As soon as I was off the bus the driver was there, holding a paper with my name on it. That was perfect. Sadly once I was at the hostel I found the driver to be slightly pushy about doing... More

Eighty8 has some solid outdoor communal areas, including a well-stocked bar on the main floor. The dorms were perfectly fine, with large beds and lockers. In terms of value, Eighty8 is a good budget-friendly choice for anyone visiting Phnom Penh.

Rooms were satisfactory - beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space, although our bathroom needed some work and the wifi doesn't reach the rooms. What makes this hostel is the communal area - it's fun, lively and the food and drinks are cheap. Location is not great as you need a tuk tuk to get to pretty much... More

Simply put: -The staff are terrible, the worst I've ever seen in a hostel. - We checked out at 9 and tried to book a bus to Siem Riep, all the bus companies they promoted and got commission for were either too later or full - They then wouldn't help us book another bus - Rooms were average - 3/4...

Hi Jasmine, sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us, we do try our very best to please everyone but it on this occasion we failed. As regards to our bus company that we use here at Eighty8, they are the top 5 here in both safety and comfort in Cambodia and yes your right we do get a $1... More

I have been to quite some hostels but this one had it all. A pool, clean and wide beds, AC, and an awesome ground floor where I met a shitload of great people in just 2 days. I'd got here without a doubt if I ever return to PP. Very nice staff as well and the food isn't bad either.... More

The rooms aren't bad - they're clean, have working air con and fans and are nothing exceptional but can't really be faulted (although we could never get the door to lock I'm sure there was a way) - but what really makes this place is the lounge and bar area. Spacious, great place to meet people, inexpensive and comfortable, the... More

Friendly staff, good egg sandwiches, clean rooms (daily) and an awesome lounge area.. Chilled out vibe. Nice stay in Phnom Pen and an easy spot yo come back to at the end of the day or night. Stayed four nights and was hesitant to leave

We stayed one night at the Eighty8 and enjoyed our time there. The room was clean, it's size was ok, the AC was working. We didn't like that the bathroom had only a curtain to separate it from the bedroom. A proper door would have been nice. The location of the backpacker is ok, but it's still a 15min walk... More
