“lovely place, feel good gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2011

We planned to stay 4 nights at You Khin, but ended up staying 6. The hospitality is perfect, sometimes the team is still a little inexperienced, but this is part of the charm. Mrs Yuon is a most charming and inspiring hostess, there is a team of Cambodians and a volunteer western people around, added with children from the connected school next door a great place to stay. Our children loved it. They spend a couple of hours in the school also following lessons with local children, a fabulous experience. There is also a possibility to have a massage, haircut etc possible and the team can help you with your planning a bookings. Absolutely recommended!

We spent five nights in this wonderful place. The hospitality was perfect, everyone so nice and smiling. The rooms and common areas are lovely, very well decorated, and perfectly clean. Furthermore, the guesthouse aims at funding the school nextdoor. Plenty of reasons to go there thus. To be fair, the only thing that was not perfect was hot water: it was not really hot.

You Khin House offers 7 quiet and tidy rooms, set in a safe and central part of Phnom Penh. Stepping through the doors into You Khin House off the small alleyway of Street 830, you immediately are made to feel at home. The staff here are excellent and provide very good service and help you out with whatever you need.
You Khin House is situated next door to a local Montesorri School, which has been set up with a local NGO. Every now and then you can hear the sound of happy children laughing or learning and you are more than welcome to visit the school itself.
I very much enjoyed my stay and would return again with no hesitation.

You Khin is a delightful boutique hotel tucked away down a lane off the main boulevard. Each well appointed room has an ensuite &ids comfortably furnished. The owner, Muoy Khin, is a very gracious lady who has the philosphy that all children should have free education so established a Montessori school &, when the adjacent property became vacant, she bought it to establish a guest house to support her school.Together with managers Brad & Laura she ensures her guest have a memorable stay. The walls of the house are decorated with art works by her late husband, internationally renown artist You Khin & together with the ground floor music room which is used by the school puplis this makes for a unique place to stay. The pool is a very welcome addition to this charming place. I only wish I could have stayed longer & will definitely return.

A lovely guesthouse in the middle of Phnom Penh (diplomatic area) where Muoy You, the owner, has transformed a dilapidated building into a cozy and stylish place. Seven room each named after a day in the week, beautifully decorated, a small swimming pool (where kids are welcome!), some fitness machines, a lounge with a snooker table and a mini-spa corner to get pampered. We really loved the place and that it was only a 10 min walk to the main attractions. Given we were in the midst of the Water Festival celebrations, it was just a bit noisy to get to sleep due to the many open air parties. Apart from that a place to discover !

I recently had two spells at You Khin House during my month in Cambodia and found it a peaceful and extremely comfortable oasis in a very busy city. The owner is delightful, the staff very helpful. It had only recently opened but by the time of my second stay the word was obviously getting around. Everyone else staying there said how much they were enjoying the experience. A very friendly place and highly recommended.
