We were there for 3 days. The owner is very helpful with advises and getting me good tuktuks.

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.

We stayed here as well as the guesthouse across the street, and both were good experiences. I stayed in the dorm on the top floor. There were about 6 bunk beds and two bathrooms. It had it's own free wifi which worked great. The bathrooms were generally clean and the shower and AC worked fine. They provide you with a... More

10 of us have spent 2 nights at this hostel! The front desk was actually a "bar" with comfy sofa available! There are books available for exchange so you can bring some old books for exchange of other books of your favourite! We stayed in 1 double room (shared bathroom) and 1 room with 8beds! The beds and shared bathroom... More

The security seemed to be lacking and the staff was friendly, but not helpful. Common area isn't very good for meeting other travelers. The room didn't feel very clean and the bathroom trash wasn't taking in the 3 days I stayed there. Wifi was pretty bad.

I did not regret staying here and I am so looking forward to come back here after my trip from Sihanouk Ville! Its definitely something like home. They served excellent quality western food, so please do yourself a favour to try them out. We had the double ensuite with air-condition and we love the power shower and the aircon is... More

Overall definitely the best backpacker lodging in PP. Excellent location to traveling about the city. Stayed in a single room, well worth the price, clean, comfortable, quiet, with hot water. Hamish has a very pleasant personality, with an excellent staff.

This is a quiet but friendly hostel, with a few private rooms, right in the riverside area. It's also gay owned and thus very lgbt friendly! Hamish, from Australia, is awesome and the staff are all great.

Good value rooms here! We are a family of 4 and the owner upgraded us to a huge room with 2 double beds. Rooms are quiet with a decent sized bathroom. Clean with lots of storage for clothes and bags. Nice balcony to look out onto the street. We were upgraded at no extra cost after booking 3 nights online... More
