We stayed in a dorm room and found it to be clean and extremely comfortable, which for $6 was great! The rooftop bar is one of the major selling points of the hostel and is lovely place to hang out - also with it being the only place in the hostel to gain a wifi it is usually packed with... More

Came from Siem Reap and found this place. Really happy with my choice. Everything is clean. Toilets and showers are clean and work well. The rooftop bar is the best one yet, really chilled but a good place to start a night and meet people. Food is also good. Staff weren't that welcoming, except for one guy, Sam, who works... More

Good and decent place to stay for a night or two. Rooftop bar is really nice it's just bad that this is the only place having wifi. Rooms are ok, standard but nothing special at all. Bathrooms are lower standard. Food is alright in the bar but could be faster, it takes ages sometimes. In total it's a good place... More

Stayed here after being told by other travellers it was a nice and clean place to stay. Very disappointed and the food ordered on the top deck wasn't cooked well enough. The rooms a little dirty and for the price not worth it. The music volume whilst trying to relax destroyed the atmosphere of the roofdeck.

Loved this place! It has a bar/restaurant on the top floor that sells food and drinks at a good price. The rooms are clean and have a private bathroom and air con and or fan, also dorm rooms. Within easy walking to river front and Grand Palace. The staff are very friendly and helpful. At night the roof bar cranks... More

I booked this place over Agoda after hearing about the rooftop bar, but being warned about its noise levels. We paid for a twin room with an ensuite and air con but instead had a room with a fan WITH NO WINDOWS. Who in their right minds wants a room with no windows?! It was horrible like being in a... More

We booked this place from our hostel in Sihanoukville, planning to get there the next day - receiving confirmation that we had a room. Upon our arrival, there was no room reserved for us! However, they said they did have a room that was "a bit noisey". We were tired so we figured what the heck. We get to the... More

Spent 2 nights here, in a double bed room with AC. Good value for money. The roof top is really cool, loads of space to chill out, good music, nice staff. But quite noisy at night so if you're not in the mood to party it might not be the right place for you. Personally I slept through the noise... More

I have traveled Asia for over 20 months the last three years and never have I encountered such incompetence and inadequate staff training/treatment in a hostel/guesthouse/hotel before. This goes for the staff as for the management and even the manager. I must also say that I have stayed in Cambodia for over 5 months in a row now, and the... More

The rooftop bar is awesome, and a great way to meet new friends, but my visit overall was less than pleasant. First off, if you stay here, check the bed to see whether it's got bugs. I left this morning and my legs are covered in bites now. Not fun. Also, be sure not to leave any stuff out because... More
