A friend and I went backpacking through Cambodia and Thailand and stayed here for a couple of days. The service was excellent and the rooms were clean. We met a lot of great people and made lots of good friends. Would definitely stay here again!

I stayed here in March for 5 days. The dorms are spacious are clean. The restaurant has a huge selection of food and it tastes great! Most of the staff is kind too. The fact that this hostel has their own 'tuk tuk drivers' is definitely a plus: you will need them in Phnom Phen, and this way you know... More

This has been the first hostel we've stayed in where it's convinced us to stay another night, not by pressure just because it's an awesome hostel, we stayed in 6 bed dorm, would recommend as the 8 bed dorms (from what I saw) are linked to other rooms, but the staff were awesome, breakfast (not included) hit the spot and...

Such a perfect hostel! The staff are so caring and kind that's it's a joy to be here! The dorms are well spaced and the bunk beds are huge! It's like a double bed! The restaurant downstairs served everything you could want from food to drink! The bar upstairs gets pretty wild... And that's great!! As a solo traveler it's... More

This is the hostel you pictured when you left home. They really have thought of everything. Nice rooms, easily the best air con in the country, good bathrooms. Great bar and plenty of activities. If you are looking for western comfort food, good restaurant. Amazing staff. A little pricey, but they do have the goods to back up the price.... More

This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Everyone working here is great, they have lots of fun activities and the kiwi guy Vath doing the pub crawl was awesome. It's fantastic that they are socially responsible giving back to the Cambodian community. For example the pub crawl pays for school fees for children. My friend and... More

Amazing staff. Nice rooms. Great atmosphere. Stayed in the Siem Reap Mad Monkey also and it was just as good (plus a pool). Even if you don't stay here please go for a mad monkey bar crawl with them. The only place to stay in Cambodia. Also big love to Tina who works at Phnom Penn's MM!
