Our stay here was really good. Room was reasonably priced $12 for a clean air con room. The reaturants is cheap and good food. It seemed quite disorganised and it was hard to tell who was in charge and the laundry service was awful. (Late to return the clothes and then they were damp and smelly- use somewhere down the...

This is my first, and hopefully my last, less than 3 star Trip Advisor rating. During my stay I met other conent & happy guests, so I stress that this was my experience alone & one I hope given my conversations with staff members, will never happen to another guest. More than a week later, my skin is still covered... More

What a strange place! The room is smelly, hasn't got toilet paper, not even a towel provided. Just a disgrace. After having a shower we decided to move to another hotel. The owner went mad and wanted us to pay half the price for the night. (I gave him $5, way enough for a shower. After quite a loud argument... More

After picking us up from the bus stop our Tuk Tuk driver informed us it was Labour day and that every hotel was fully booked. And yet he took us directly to The Siem Reap Central Hostel were they had a room available. I suspect he had some deal with the owner. The room itself was disgusting. Had I gone... More

cant believe that it's $10 fan room, it should be $2. It makes me think worse more about Cambodia. Please stay away from this name. Don't trust taxi driver too much. There're many good hotels located near old market

As it was Chinese New Year everything was booked out. We went to this place as a bit of a last resort. Firstly, its a nice enough looking property but its just not well maintained. Run by lazy men we were flat out getting a towel. Our fridge didnt work, when I looked behind the bed there was dirt -... More

I do not usually write reviews but feel somewhat compelled by this place. We have spent 1 night here and feel somewhat trapped by having paid another 3 nights. We are hurriedly looking for a way out. It is very dirty, and the staff could not care less about our presence. We were woken up this morning by staff members... More

We checked into this hostel thinking that paying US$40 for 2 nights we would at least receive average service and a clean room. However upon checking in, we were greeted by a man playing computer games who did not even look at us or tell us details of this beautiful town. The room was an absolute joke! No soap, towels,...

Spent two nights in this hostel with my two daughters and my wife. Unfortunately the booking was pre-arranged by our tourist guide who commented that due to the peak season there was no other choice. Price was reasonable at $25/night/room for a double and a twin. However the cleanliness of this place was scary. The bathroom was dirty everything leaked,... More
