This is a great hostel for any backpacker looking for a fun atmosphere and a great base to start their exploration of Phnom Penh and its tourist sites. Staff are very helpful with any questions and there are several reputable tuk tuks outside that will get you to any of the local sites at a reasonable price. Beds are nice... More

Lovely hostel, really clean, really fun and good value. Amazing restaurant and bar, with a wide selection. Only negative the room had no windows so some days we woke up at 11am and it was all slightly disorienting. 9/10 for me!!

I am a 31 year old female solo traveller who spent one night here. Clean rooms, nice bed and lovely, helpful staff. You can party or you can be chilled out, it's the best of both worlds. I had a few drinks in the bar and easily met other people and had a great night. Definitely recommend!

One of the loveliest hostels we've come across so far in Asia, staff were so lovely and fun the bar staff made sure everyone was having fun and at 11ish everyone is rounded up to go out which makes making friends easy. Food in the restaurant was lovely too. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Nice vibe, good rooms with big comfy beds, fun people, good bar upstairs, location is fine but probably not the best (had to get a tuktuk everywhere but this might be the case generally in Phnom Penh), hot showers, great services offered which makes it very easy for backpackers, however we made the mistake of eating here twice, once for...

Best staff I've come across since travelling. The bar is extremely popular with backpackers and everyone goes there for drinks even if they're staying elsewhere. Great dorms, very spacious and huge beds! The food was brilliant and we found ourselves eating downstairs every meal time. Oh and Seb is one sexy beast ;)
