Arrived in Cambodia in February booking the guesthouse in advance as it was our first stop. The guesthouse location was lovely and tucked away in a quiet street away from all the street noise, but handy enough to bike ($2US hire) around the town. The room was clean and large double bed and your own  bathroom attached. The complex is... More

This is a great guesthouse, we weren't planning on staying here but I'm glad we did. We stayed in a double aircon room which was very nice. The restaurant area downstairs is a great place to hang out and the food was well priced. The staff were more than friendly. We recommend the European to anyone we know going to... More

I spent 6 nights in the lovely area of wat bo and had a good sleep in the very quiet and affordable dorms (4$) shared bathroom was clean and staff very helpful. Good value for money and especially the nice garden / communal area made this stay really pleasant.

This is a great hostel for the price, it is very clean and the staff are always friendly and helpful. It is in a decent location within a $2 tuk tuk ride from the night markets and pub street. They also offer tour advise and free activities.

A colleague and I stayed at European for about a month during October 2014. Before I moved to this guest house I moved twice in a week. We had large single rooms with AC, fan, private bathroom, TV and a gecko for company. The staff are a little too nice. Don't stay as long as I did because you get... More

Hi. Thanks for the nice review. We do try to keep the atmosphere as pleasant as possible and as you mentioned the staff are very good at coping with whatever Cambodia decides to throw at us from time to time. Personally I am very happy the way things are and hopefully Cambodia will not lose its charm over the years.... More

We stayed here for 6 nights, upstairs in Room 13 immediately above the Dorm. The room was big enough for us, bed was large but no hooks or cupboard space to hang clothes etc., although there was a hat rack that was some help. The room was a bit musty but more than bearable. The shower was fine but wet... More

Hi and thanks for the review. I noted your points about more hangers. We had little wardrobes in all of the rooms and we eventually took them out to make more space because we found that most guests stay for 3 or 4 nights and rarely unpack so the wardrobes were redundant. We got the hat stands instead. I think... More

Could be cleaner. Floors are old and squeaky. Place was noisy all night. Staff was helpful. Room was bleak. Stayed there one night instead of the planned three. I stayed there 6 and 8 years ago and it is just getting worn out.

Obviously a very disappointing review and I don't think in any way deserved. The guesthouse was renovated entirely just over two years ago. All of the fittings in the rooms are that age. I suspect you mentally wrote your review before you arrived. Things always seem much better in the rosy past. Anyway I hope you enjoy the rest of... More
