We stayed here for 2 weeks while my girlfriend recovered from a stomach bug that we'd caught from being too stingy and staying in terrible places and eating terrible food. The British owner runs the place like a British hotel which is very refreshing after 5 months on SE Asia where the standard of customer service is terrible. The food... More

My friend and I stayed at Downtown Siem Reap Manor, down the street from the hostel. This hotel provides an alternative to the hostel environment, while still creating a friendly, social atmosphere. Alex runs the poolside bar and is an incredible host- well informed, friendly, helpful. The owner was incredibly accommodating. The pool was amazing, towels provided and food and... More

We originally booked a 1 night stay through booking.com and ended up staying for 15! The English owner also owns a hostel a few streets down and runs both with great professionalism. The rooms are big with the best shower in South East Asia. Cable TV is offered and the beds are super comfy. There is a pool which always... More

Not as mental as the other hostels, but then again the manager at the other hostel not naming names was a complete knob... More

Stayed here at the end of my trip and wish I had more time. The place is clean, cheap and excelent location. The guys behind the outdoor bar make the place. The socialising and extra activities really make this place a good time. The Pub Crawl they organise is one of the best nights I had travelling. Highly recommend this... More

have now stayed at this hostel twice and really wish I wrote this review after my first experience as it was intiially good. A lot has changed in the week I was away – a responsive fun bar has turned to taking 10mins to pour 1 pint, don't bother asking for a coktail because they can't make you 1. In... More

Very good hostel, super friendly and helpfull owner and staff, swimmingpool, clean rooms, good food, nice bar at The pool, best brownies i've ever had and not two minutes by bike from The center. If you like it's even possible to work here for a couple of days or longer.

We loved this hostel! big clean beds nice rooms! The pool was awesome and it was great being able to run a tab for the duration of your stay! Nothing was better then coming back from Angkor Wat to a nice cold pool! At night the hostel was also great for organizing going out and drinking games at the bar!... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Clean rooms, secure property, reliable and trustworthy service - that is our guarantee. Downtown Siem Reap Hostel is a hostel with high standards, but with backpacker and flashpacker prices. British owned and managed, and established in February 2011, Downtown Siem Reap Hostel has become one of the most popular hostels in Siem Reap, and now with a newly built swimming pool, bamboo gardens, and extra rooms, we are able to accommodate and serve 50 guests per night. Our accommodation includes cheaper fan dorms, AC dorms, twin and double rooms, 4 person rooms and deluxe family rooms (Feb 2013). Our kitchen is open from 6.30 am- with a cheap backpacker menu with all eats under $2.50, to Thai food and Western food- something for all budgets. Our breakfasts have always been a big hit, with set-breakfasts including tea/coffee and juice from $2.50. Our popular bar is open until 2 am, and often later - of course staffed by Western staff. We offer free pick-up from the airport and bus stations in Siem Reap, so please, always inform us of your travel details when booking- we cannot guarantee a booking unless we are responsible for picking you up. We are open 24 hours a day - we never close! Our success is due only to the shear dedication of the Khmer staff employed here. They speak excellent English, serve with a smile, and are here to make your stay as comfortable as possible. ... more   less
