The place was great but the owner was seriously creepy. The first night we arrived he was super drunk and making very inappropriate comments about my body when I was ordering dinner from the bar. He then got worse and started aggressively throwing his flip flops at us! The other staff were great and friendly.the hostel it's self had clean... More

Ant G, Owner at Eighty8 Backpackers, responded to this review

OH DEAR…. you have clearly taken any comments out of context and assumed any such interaction was aimed at you personally, do not flatter yourself. You completely mis-read the dynamic at the bar; we were not only celebrating Khmer New Year but also the birthday of one of the guests. Whilst I will admit humor is subjective, you definitely missed... More

We had a great stay here. Really reasonably priced for a double room (around $24) and while we didn't stay in the dorms we heard other people telling us how great they were. The place has a really good bar atmosphere and is great for hanging out by the pool. The best part is the staff and the owner who... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Eighty8. My room was simple, and there was no view to speak of, but the point of staying in a hostel isn't being in your room all the time- plus it was spacious and extremely clean. The staff were lovely, and the downstairs space with the pool/bar/lounge is just fantastic. Happy hour was... More

Thank you for your comments and feedback. We take pride in our cleanliness and have a dedicated housekeeping team so I will gladly pass your comments onto them :) Of course a hostel is all about the social environment and we have tried to create a comfortable, relaxing social atmosphere around our bar and pool area.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. The room was clean and well kept, but the real draw here is the atmosphere. Happy hour 5-7 every day brings everyone out, letting you meet lots of other travelers. We had a fantastic time here and would recommend this for anyone looking to enjoy their stay in Phnom Penh.

Thank you for your feedback and we are delighted that you enjoyed your 3 nights here. I am pleased you go to meet Anthony and by the sound of things he was on form! Over the busy period that was Khmer New Year he got stuck in and made a guest appearance behind the bar. Thanks again and enjoy the... More

I have been travelling solo and stayed in a 6 bed female dorm for 2 nights. The room was a good size with comfortable beds and large lockers for storage. The pool and bar area is a great spot to meet people during the late afternoon and into the night. Chilled place and would stay again. Staff could be a... More

88 is fab! The dorm rooms are spacious and the beds are amazing being almost a small double size! I found our room really quiet for sleeping which was great but downstairs in the bar was always lovely and always someone to socialise with! Staff spoke excellent English and could really help you and they have their own tut tut... More

Great hostel, perfect for a city like Phnom Penh where, in my opinion, you can waste some time at the bar and by the pool. Spent 3 nights, met some really cool people from all around the world. Might not be the best location but then again, I don't think there are any perfect locations in Phnom Penh. It wasn't... More

My first stop in Cambodia and I was very excited to stay here, unfortunately it fell flat and did not meet my expectations. I'll start by saying the bar and restaurant were pretty awesome. Worth a trip for dinner and socializing. We stayed in a deluxe private room for 24 bucks a night, site description was highly over exaggerated. No... More

Thank you for taking your time giving us your thoughts and feedback. I apologize if we fell short of your expectations, but it does seem you have very high expectations, especially for a hostel.

I ended up at the Eighty8 hostel after arrriving in Phnom Penh at 6am without a booking from my preferred choice of hostel, which kindly recommended Eighty8. Dorms were all full so I shared a two bed room with my travel buddy from the bus. It was on the first floor and had an ensuite bathroom with shower (no door,... More

Thank you for taking your time to write a balanced detailed review of your stay with us. All of our private rooms are located on the top floor so they are away from any noise. The only really noisy room is our above bar dorm room as it is above the bar and the price reflects this. We do close... More
