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

The hostel itself is quite nice.. its was a great place to meet other people and had a nice bar! The staff were very friendly and helped us sort out our next travel arrangements and gave us great tips. However the rooms are very basic and the bathrooms really needs an update. The shared bathroom has the shower nearly over... More

The main reason we picked this hostel was for their social responsibility policy. The people we met in cambodia were so lovely and deserve to be treated and paid fairly! The hostel was great for meeting people and the staff in the bar made sure everyone was having a good time. The staff in general were so helpful sorting everything... More

Lots of activity here for backpackers! Staff was very friendly and breakfast was delicious & a little on the expensive but you're paying for convenience. Got a double private above the bar & was bummed at how someone's puke was not cleaned from the next day but there were two other stalls to choose from

Travelling solo and the great staff made me feel very welcomed. Close to good places in the evening for a cold beer. And events they organize help charities! Great place to meet people and to have a good time. Some German friends recommended this place to me and was so glad they did. I would recommend it to anyone!
