This was a nice, clean hostel where I met a lot of warm and enthusiastic people. The amenities are nice, the beds are full-size, the A/C works well, the computers downstairs are always available & the internet is lightning fast, and the staff is very willing to help out. I rode around on the tuk-tuks, saw a friend from my... More

Absolutely loved this place. The dorm was kind of big, with a lot of beds but I met so many people it didn't matter. They have something for you to do every night and a bar across the street with great deals. Everything you want and need out of a hostel. Make sure you book ahead, they get pretty busy.

Stayed here last week for 3 nights. I stayed in a private room which was comfortable but basic. The rooftop bar was good and got to meet some nice people that we all ended up in pub street. 1 night the fire alarm went off near 1am set in error but at least it works. The food could be better....

Stayed here for 3 days, everything just above average. Actually can make it much more better especially the way of approaching the guests. The location of the hostel is good, you can go Central Market, Royal Palace and Russian Market just for a few minutes by tuk-tuk.

I arrived quite late (midnight) at the hostel because my bus was really late and it wasn't easy to find someone. But the Tuk Tuk driver found the security staff who were very helpful. I got my room (6dorm) which was really clean, nice bed and bathroom include. The only bad thing I could say about this place, was noisy,... More

My husband and I stayed here in a double room with an ensuite for three nights. You must pay in cash on arrival and the nearby ATM only accepts Visa cards (not our travel cash card) so we had to do a bit of running around before we could check in. The rooms are located up several flights of steep... More

We had made the mistake of arriving a day before we were originally booked. They took care of it with ease and helped us with an otherwise lousy situation. Food was great and staff was friendly. Very clean as well, definitely recommend whilst in Phnom penh.

Good points: The shared bathroom was clean all the time. There is also a nice rooftop bar. Drawbacks: The restaurant was expensive in comparison with other places in Cambodia. We also tried a couple of meals and didn't like at all (especially one local food made with eggplants - horrible). You'll probably have trouble if you want to sleep before... More
