Sorry Bun, but you're letting this place go downhill as you spend all your spare time on your new place. The pool was dirty and overchlorinated to compensate. No-one was about on lots of occasions so there was no service then. It's still good value for a/c, pool, big rooms and closeness to night market and pub street BUT it... More

We stayed here for about a week while we were waiting for our flight back to Thailand and it was very good. Bun and his family are very nice. The room we stayed in was on the ground floor by the pool and it was clean with air conditioning. We moved here from were we were because they had a... More

The hotel is very nice, only problem we had with the room was that the hot water was non existent. The owner Bun is a very nice and talkative man, his family and employees are also kind and helpful and will always greet you with a smile. I did however find that Bun did attempt to make money of us... More

I stayed at Bunlinda for 3 nights plus and extra day waiting for my night bus, and I loved it. The place is well located: just few minutes walk from the night market, even if it's not really easy to find at first. Mr. Bun has been an excellent host, warm welcoming me, making sure I had my days properly... More

Bunlinda hostel is a true guesthouse in the centre of Siem Reap. It offers large rooms, excellent tours of Angkor Wat with a very professional driver and best of all, an excellent family atmosphere. Mr. Bun was a great host throughout. He introduced us to his family and friends and in fact, I would go as far to say that... More

We stayed at Bunlinda for 3 nights after riding from Thailand. We chose it because of past reviews we read. It is an ok place to stay for young backpackers I think, we are a bit older and weren't that impressed. It is close to the night market. The place is relatively hard to find, we had gone past and...

I stayed there a couple of times and had every time a warm welcome. The family is so generous and their Cambodian food is so delicious, you don't want to eat western breakfast. You can choose a room with airco or a fan. Up to you. A nice swimming pool and a big hall where you (for myself) can do... More

This is a small family-run place with maybe 6 rooms, which are slightly dated and in need of some attention. It's on a quiet side street and if I was a single female would feel uncomfortable walking here in the dark. However, it's only a 5 min walk from the centre of town but is quiet and peaceful so the...

Come here just so you can meet this amazing family! They are truly such lovely people and will make your experience in Siem Reap so much more amazing. We had the privilege of being here the night of Linda's birthday (Bun's daughter) and the family graciously invited us to be a part of this amazing night. There were friends, family,... More

More than anything else, when I travel, I want contact with local people not just tourist stuff. BunLinda provided a perfect home stay where we felt like part of the family from the moment we arrived. It is not perfect or "western" in anyway. It is authentic and a great location if you want to mix in with locals in... More
