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

We took an en-suite double room with a fan here for $10/night, and it was more than adequate. We were first shown a room with no window but asked to see another room with a window, and it was the same price. They may obviously try and fill this room first but don't forget to just ask if that's what... More

Thanks 11 Happy! This is one of the best hostels where I've been so far. We stayed here for 4 days. The staff is super friendly and always happy, they wanna help you with anything. And one the best things of the hostel is the moviehouse and for sure the rooftopbar, the best place to stay to meet other people... More

The rooftop bar is brilliant for meeting people, and the beer was ok. Personally I thought the music was about the right volume. We met lots of different people and had no problem conversing. A couple of the staff are brilliant, but the majority are non descript. Can only get wifi upstairs! Food is average. Good location, the flicks is... More
