Staying here, you'll know you're at Khmer guesthouse - you leave your shoes at the entrance. Being on a little spur off a short stretch of unimproved road, it's quiet, but still within easy walking distance, and even easier tuktuk diistance of everything. The tuktuk drivers who linger in the street will try to get your business, but they're also... More

We liked the location and the friendly staff but the facility itself could be cleaner, especially the bathroom. The neighborhood is quieter, about a 15 minute walk or $1-2 tuk tuk ride to the 'entertainment' area. It has some interesting restaurants nearby and even the option to use the swimming pool of another guesthouse for a fee. We had breakfast... More

We stayed three nights at Bun Kao Guest house. Big rooms, warm shower and working AC. The rooms were simple but with comfortable beds. There was a TV, we didn`t use it. The guesthouse is in a quiet and dead end street, many other guesthouses in the same street. As it`s an unpaved street it might get very muddy in... More

We stayed there few nights and it was great. Rooms are clean enough and bathroom too. We paid 12$/night without breakfast in high season. The owner is really friendly and welcoming, that's the reason why we choose this guest house. The owner speaks a good english and give you a lot of tips. His staff doesn't speak english and can't...

Mr Bun Kao's kindness and hospitality and the reasonable rates are this quirky guesthouse's strongest points. I had a wonderful time here in Dec 2013. The staff are unbelievable kind and helpful. Mr Bun Kao himself is lovely and he will give you great tips and directions (even at 5am). I stayed in a dorm for the first two nights... More

Bun Kao Guesthouse is a simple and nice guesthouse. I shared a double with a friend, it was very affordable, clean, and the staff were kind. The guesthouse is a bit off from "downtown" but if you rent a bike or like walking, its a great area to stay since its a bit quieter. Wifi was free and pretty good.

I came on the recommendation of a friend. It seemed okay at first, they even sent a tuk tuk to pick us up from the bus terminal, even when our arrival was at 7am. When I got to the dorm, I realized the bed in the dorm was covered in bits of dirt, and it seemed like there were ticks... More

A special thank you to Mr Kao and Noy for being polite, attending to our needs, ensuring we had transport, and were willing to share about Cambodia. And of course, thank you Visal, our tuk tuk driver who was polite, never pushy, made good company for conversation and always punctual. You made our rainy temple visit day a more comforting... More
