A great location with cheap, clean, big dorm. Even if it was a bit noisy in the night and construction-work at 6 a.m. Free towel and very good showers. Good place to meet people, and have a beer and some food at the amazing rooftop were they also have TV, pool table hammocks and wifi. The staff is good, but... More

The first time we came here, things were very average but still nice, cheap room 12$ with A/C , so we decided to book a room for our last day, which was five days later. But when we arrived, they didn t had our reservation and they got us a little room. The room was rotting, seal was leaking and... More

Rooms are average and could do with a good clean! First night we stayed in a room without a window but the next night moved room due to how stuffy it was (no working ventilation). If you've come to Phnom Penh to party then this will be the place for you, you will probably be too drunk to notice the... More

I stayed here on two trips to Phnom Penh on the recommendation of some fellow travelers. Its in a great location a couple of minutes walk to the river one way and ten minutes to the central market the other. The front desk staff are incredibly helpful and friendly as are the staff who run the bar upstairs. So one... More

Good location, rooms aren't too clean..couple of bars of old soap left and overall looked like hadn't been cleaned for a while. Clean sheets and towels though. Great rooftop bar, the main highlight. Cheap drinks and free pool table. However food is expensive. On the email confirmation it stated we got hot water and air con. However, on arrival we... More

When we booked the bus in Siem Reap they arranged someone from here to pick us up. It turned out OK. We stayed in an AC double on the top floor for $12. For the price this room was fine, clean large enough, absolutely no frills mind you. Theres a bar on the top floor, which is pretty good, with... More

Although we didn't stay here, arriving late at our hostel we didn't fancy walking around to look for a restaurant however we stumbled upon this place which we'd heard good things through word of mouth and decided to give it ago. The food was amazing! I'd definitely recommend the apple and blue cheese salad. This place became our local over... More

Very close to the Mekong Riviera, you will find this spot as a great place to meet interesting travelers, who enjoy a good conversation. The service at the roof top is very convenient, the food has good quality, and the roof top has been decorated in a way that is very appealing for you to sit and relax, meet interesting... More

Where do I start with this place.... First of all I need to correct all the haters. You get what you pay for with the rooms, they are all private and single beds are a decent size, showers are average and you get what you pay for..... A hostel! Now onto what it's all about the social aspect... The roof... More

Stayed here with a large group and the staff were so kind and helped us with everything we needed including booking buses and activities in Phnom Penh! The rooms were fine but nothing special but it didn't matter because we spent all our time at the rooftop bar where food and drinks were served - there was loads of seating,... More
