My friend and I arrived to Phnom Penh not knowing what to expect. We were sent to the mini Banana and did not regretted it at all! The dorm in comfy and the staff is there for you (all of them speak in English, a little bit of fluently). Yes, the bar is noisy at night and therefor don't go... More

Staff were lovely and the drinks were delicious we stopped in here for a drink on our way back to our hotel and were not disappointed. The staff friendly and the ambience was very chilled and relaxed. Worth a visit if you are nearby.

The room is small, but really fair for the price. You got everything you need around you, supermarket is not far, also food from all over the world. It's walking distance to the Royal Palace (20 min). The owners are extremely friendly and open, speak a lot of languages (perfect in english, french) - you will feel at home immediately.... More

Bas and Pauline, a lovely couple working at Mini Banana will welcome you in a very friendly way. The rooms are simple yet clean and the dorm has been newly renovated and looks great. The bar is very friendly and you can meet a lot of nice people. It is also close to many city activities. On the weekends, it... More

I was searching for a place to stay for one night when I arrived here in this area of the city. I was tired of searching and the only wish was sleeping. Here was very cheap and soft extremely good, I did not suspect so good, but here there was.

Stayed here in a double room sharing a bathroom for 10 usd, one of the lowest prices we could find in Phnom Penh during the low season. The place has some nice (multilingual: Dutch, English, Khmer, French, etc) staff around, ready for a chat around the bar, it's clean and, as I've said, cheap! Would definitely stay again when I'm...

We stayed here for a night in the dorm in a double bunk bed for 9$. International staff was friendly and everything was well organized. The place was recently taken over and refurnished, but their old website is still in the air. For instance they do not serve a full menu or the top banana anymore, just snacks.

Travelled around Canada, NZ and Asia for a year and this was definitely one of the best hostels we stayed at. $17/ night for a king size en suite room with aircon. After a long time travelling we were not interested in too much partying so the Mini Banana was a good compromise- always someone interesting at the bar to... More

Stumbled across this bar in PP and had to pop in for a drink - we stayed for four! Chilled vibes and friendly people. Drinks are inexpensive and served with a smile. Nice neighbourhood near Malis Restaurant which is also a must. The bar is being extended during the low season so I expect this place will only improve in... More
