After spending 2 weeks in Vietnam we were pleasantly surprised to walk into this little haven of calm in the north of the city. The open bar / restaurant area has a great vibe and a nice little swimming pool to cool off in the heat. Knowledgeable staff with very good English make booking buses and ordering food and drinks...

We booked this hostel because of its excellent reviews. Maybe we are not the target audience for this place, but we didn't like it. So I will share my experience to other backpackers, looking for Cambodia and not just for party. I'll begin with the room. The double room we had was okay. But the bed was horrible. Normally i...

This is a great deal for the money. The rooms are clean, nothing fancy, but well equipped. You can't ask for a better bar or pool either, and it always is a great place to meet fellow travelers. The best part (in my opinion) was the morning market that appeared around 6am right down the street: BEST street breakfast we... More

I'm soon going back for my fourth time in 2 months. I threatened them the last time I left that, I just might move in. When I left, they said "see you soon." As if it was expected. A little cocky if you ask me! I guess they know, they have earned the right to be a little confident!

Had a great time staying here, great food, service and cheap accommodation and drinks. Stayed in a mixed dorm rooms, made a lot of friends in the dorm and whilst chilling by the pool, which is perfect for the midday heat. It has tuk-tuk drivers willing to take you off to the city's sights, and they don't try and rip... More

I stayed here at 88 in 8 bed dom (1 night) and 6 bed dom (1 night) during my stay at phnom penh. The restaurant & bar was quite spacious with a pool table. The breakfast at the restaurant was good with complementary juices or soft drinks.The guest will get a 3$ credit at the bar if u'll book online... More

Great place to stay.very friendly.helpful staff.cheap, and great food, as a 59 year old with my 57 year old wife, son of 26 and a few of his mates. I did not think I would be in to hostels.etc Stayed in two very nice hotels during stay.but nowhere near as friendly and atmospheric as 88.

We stayed at Eighty8 for three nights and had a mixed experience. The drinks at the bar were fantastic, but the food seemed very variable (I had an amazing stack of pancakes, but my girlfriend had a stale bacon roll) and not terribly good value. The reception staff were very accommodating and helpful, but suffered being understaffed at peak times... More

Recommended by the lonely planet this backpackers is the best in the city. Cheap but clean! Awesome pool, great food, pool tables, bar.. Just an awesome set up. Close to everything. Helpful staff. Stayed in a female dorm, nothing special but nice clean beds. Perfect for backpackers on a budget!

The staff is very helpful and very nice. The owner helped me out with an attorney when I had some troubles in another town. The pool is clean as well as are the rooms. No soap anywhere for guests, so bring your own. There is a sign in the kitchen telling the employees to wash their hands, so there must... More
