You get the feeling that being included in a Lonely Planet guide book has gone to this hostels head a little bit. We stayed for two noisy nights, the rooftop bar blasting out bass music until 2am (it was a Friday and Saturday night but still they have guests downstairs) Also had to ask four times for another pillow and...

Affordable ($8 for a double with bathroom) and close to where the buses drop you off. Quite noisy, especially on the top floor. Food was average. They rent bicycles, have a laundry service and book buses etc.

I come here every time I'm in Cambodia!!! It is filled with the friendliest staff, with a fabulous place to chill out at the rooftop bar. Definitely recommend for those backpackers on a small budget looking for a great time!

Thank you all good service... More

We came for 2 nights in this place. I had booked a room by phone 2 days before arriving, asking for a quiet room with a double bed. We had a room with 2 single beds on the street side and just under the noisy rooftop bar..... hard to sleep... And the 2 nights were short because we also had... More

Staff was nice but super inattentive took them forever to prepare my room. Got room with AC and the AC at 16C felt more like 30. Was not working properly at all. Entire room smelt like mold. Bathroom was always leaking. Bedsheets were non-existent. Glad I slept in my sleeping bag as bed bugs were everywhere. Fun for party goers... More
