Stayed there for 3 nights. This hostel had a cheap-unfriendly-loud feeling to it. I had an almost unpleasant experience, and moved to another place. The first two nights, in a single for $22, totally overpriced for a dark, no-windows (well, there are windows somehow, but they don't open and face some sort of wall within 30cm), neon-lighted room. The other... More

I booked one night at the 88 backpackers in a female dorm. I send them email to get information and the team was answering very precisely, promptly and professionally and I appreciated it a lot. The booking is really easy through their website. They also offered a free pick up if you are coming by bus and if you informed... More

This hostel makes it easy to meet many cool travelers! The bar scene was fun, and the prices were very good. The people I met wanted to stay at the Hostel and party and they were cool, we all had a great time. The food at the bar was also delicious. I thought the location was good, a nice street... More

A modern and fun place with a good system. The staff was very helpful with all our inquiries. The rooms are nice and clean, although I don't like that the bathroom and the room are only separated with a thin curtain (no door). Our last night here was also disturbed as the staff got pissed, they stopped serving food earlier... More

Thanks for your feedback and I am glad that overall that you enjoyed your stay with us. Apologies if our small staff party disturbed you.

This hostel was really social, particularly as it had a swimming pool where you can play volley ball. There's a definite buzz around the place as well because the lobby/ reception area is huge, with a pool table and loungers. The staff were really helpful and the rooms were clean with exactly what we needed. Lockers were also provided to... More

Great happy hour deals, nice clean pool, friendly staff, over all was a great stay here and very good value. I would... More

When I arrived at Eighty8, Phnom Penh I thought I'd been upgraded to a 5* hotel. It's a beautiful building with a pool, great staff who go the extra mile, very clean rooms and a lovely bar area doing good food. A great end to my trip.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights and overall found it a good stay. We stayed in the private room and room and bathroom was all very clean. Air con worked well, and bath towels were provided which were a real bonus!!! Although we liked our room, we did find it particularly noisy of a night time. We... More

I stayed 6 days at Eighty8 and I must say that I never felt as comfortable at a hostel. They have the best facilities you can dream of for 6$ per night, my dorm room had both fans and aircon, beds were nearly double sized (and not bunk beds), the restaurant/bar provides all that you need at a fair price...

We stayed here for a night on our second time in Phnom Penh. What a revelation! Very friendly, incredibly efficient staff. Large, clean twin room with air con and fan. Excellent breakfast and lovely bar staff. For $22 a room, we couldn't fault it. I am 30 years old, travelling with my 28 year old brother and we certainly felt... More
