I originally booked four nights at Angkor Wonder, then extended my stay twice for a total of 12 days. Without a doubt, this is one of the most exceptional places I have stayed at in Asia.
The location is quite central (2 minute walk to Pub street, the old market, the night markets) and the food options around the hostel are seemingly limitless. The price is very competitive, and my cold shower/fan room was very spacious and cleaned every few days.
What really makes Angkor Wonder special, however, is the "staff". Mr Why Not and his lovely family live in the guesthouse, and try very hard to make your stay as memorable as possible. Whether assisting in booking transportation, temple visits or other tours, you'll find that the prices are great and on-par with what is offered elsewhere. Their tuk tuk drivers are friendly (especially the great Mr Bo) and speak good english.
And no review of Angkor Wonder is complete without a mention of Mr Beer-O-Clock, one of the tuktuk drivers. If you're bored of pub street, grab a few cans of Anchor and sit in the garden, and you'll see why his name pops up in so many reviews. He's a force of nature, to put it simply.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat, and would definitely recommend this guesthouse to any traveler. I felt like part of Mr Why Not's family, and they made my trip to siem reap unforgettable.
Chulmoy Pumah! (Cheers, my friend)
