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

Mini banana is a really nice hostel, close to the royal palace They welcome you really nicely, and even show around. Rooms are simple but very clean! The bar is really nice to chill out and met people

We stayed in a dorm room upstairs for 4 dollars. What you see is definitely what you get. This is not a problem, it is not luxury and we did not expect it. The reason I want to give this place such a bad review is the level of noise that meant we both slept just half an hour in... More

We were staying in a boutique hotel next door but used this bar every day & night. Great staff, friendly and helpful. Cheap prices even by Phnom Penh prices.. $3 G&T served in a chilled half pint mug! And a great atmosphere. You would be foolish not to give it a try!

Nice local people very friendly staff. We felt at home. 👍😊 we did not stay at the guesthouse... Happy hour all day. Just go there if you are in Phnom Penh ☺ just opposite of the 1 up banana hotel. The best rated B&B in Phnom Penh

This is a great little hotel, situated very centrally in Phnom Penh and reasonably priced. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. Food is available from sister hotel, Top Banana - ordered and delivered to Mini Banana. Reliable and honest Tuk tuk transport is always available if required. There is a pleasant bar area and, again, prices are reasonable. The... More
