We stayed here for a night before heading to Siem Reap. The Room is huge, clean, and reasonably priced. Location is in the heart of Phnom Penh, near to all must-see places only for 2$ tuk-tuk ride. Budget-wise, This is one of the best place to stay in Phnom Penh, recommended for backpackers.

This got good reviews which why I booked here - but I am not sure why as there are much better options in pp. This is in a pretty good location on paper but the road is in a terrible state outside so it is grubby and dirty all around. And because the hostel is so basic it is all... More

Great place to stay, well situated, friendly staff who help organise any tours and provide entertainment! I had a small private room, no AC but a fan which was fine. Lots to see and do, recommend this place, Hamish the owner and his staff were great company for a solo traveller

I stayed in many hostels/backpackers while in Cambodia but Velkommen was certainly the best. The staff are all very friendly, with good English, they made staying there feel like home. The rooms are well priced, cleaned daily and I never heard a complaint being made. They are situated in an ideal location, with easy access to all Phnom Penh has... More

I was pleasantly surprised by my stay at velkommen's. The dorm was spacious, clean and even came with individual lockers and pad locks. The two toilet/ bathrooms were cleaned daily & worked fine. The wifi was excellent - no issues with it what so ever. The location is close to the grand palace, museum, riverside & central markets - we... More

Nothing really bad to say about this hostel. Rooms were nice, people were nice. Everything was clean. The staff were very understanding of the ridiculous time of day we arrived and left, despite us waking them up! Good location right by the markets, so generally great stay!

We were there for 3 days. The owner is very helpful with advises and getting me good tuktuks. This is important as it's my first trip to PP and I don't speak the local language, it helps to have look out for me. I stayed in the private room for 2. It was neat and clean. There was even some...

We stayed 2 nights and everything was ok, just the air con was not working properly and we had to switch it off because we were freezing. Anyway good location, close to a street market and the river, was easy to move around; average prices.
