Pros: Swimming pools, comfortable beds, big lockers, lots of places to relax in the hostel, value for money, pool table, really nice staff aside from one, GREAT FOOD- especially the Khmer dishes. Cons: Poor wifi (and only in public areas), constant blaring music starts in the morning and continues all day, the main reception lady was rude and unwelcoming on... More

We thought we'd save some money by booking into a backpackers. What a surprise! If the name didn't give it away I would have never known! We stayed in a double room which had an ensuite bathroom, very clean and spacious (cleaned daily). The AC was fantastic! The pool was cleaned every morning and great to jump into after the... More

Coming from a 4* hotel in Vietnam the idea of backpacking could be seen as a step down. How wrong could I be ! From the moment we were met at the bus stop to the moment the kitchen staff went out to find the ingredients that they had run out for our meal of all the staff have been... More

We stayed in the Standard Double Bed Private Ensuite, it was clean, bathroom was big. It's not prepared when we arrived so we had to wait. You can book bus ticket at the reception, and the bus company will pick you up at the hostel.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in on my travels. Dorms were very clean and comfortable and the bar was great for meeting others. Reasonably close to bars and other attractions, just a short tuktuk drive away!

We arrived at the hostel without a booking and were fortunate enough to be checked in straight away. The hostel bar was busy but not too loud and the rooms and bathroom were very clean. The hostel really did exceed our expectations and the bar staff and reception staff were very accommodating and welcoming. Do not expect a palace when... More

We stayed here for two nights. We booked a superior double room two days ahead of time. When we arrived they had lost our booking through a system glitch, and offered us a mattress in an empty room, which we reluctantly accepted for $10 for the night. It turned out to be worse than expected, and in hindsight we probably... More

The hostel is nice enough, decent basic rooms (albeit a little over priced) and the staff are really nice. The problem is that they play overly loud music until 3am. I'm not adverse to a party but they should take a tip from Mad Monkey and turn the music off at 11pm- that way anyone who wants to sleep can... More
