“Just walls and a roof. Oh, and a bed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2015

Stayed at Sakal Guesthouse in town

Place is unfriendly, reception is behind bars and at night they play incredibly loud music(1 am and 5am) next door. Sheets were filthy, got clean ones, though.

Room is spacious and location is good, even though it's Sihanoukville.

Room Tip: Stay at the back, away from the bar or get a different place

Both of us were Eaten alive by bed bugs in rooms 103 and 104. They moved us at 5am to room 201 and 202 which was fine after a thorough inspection. Asked for discount for that night because of the inconvenience but was told it wasnt their fault. Ask for express laundry to was our clothes in case the bugs got on them. Went to pick the clothes up and they wernt there, had to pick them up next morning whicn ruined our night because had no clothes to wear except underwear. Still made us pay the express price after asking to pay regular price. Said no because we agreed to pay for express.

We recommend Sakal if you are staying in Sihanoukville for the first time, if at least a couple of nights. Its location is great, the food is well priced and the rooms are very clean and spacious. Our only issue at the time was that we got there we had a downstairs room overlooking building materials, we asked to change the room to an upstairs balcony but there was another building site next door so we stuck to our original room given. After a long days travelling I think we may have over reacted as this was not a fault of Sakals. My biggest tip would be if you want a evening sun facing room, book one of the twin rooms instead. Overall we had a great stay in Sakal and the restaurant staff are lovely.

Room Tip: Twin rooms are the way to go for a first floor, evening sun facing balcony.

Room Tip: the aircon rooms are very nice, we never use aircon but these rooms are the newest and cleanest. But...

I moved here as the place I was in previously (big easy) had bed bugs. Sakal also had bed bugs. Not sure if it's a problem with the are or what.

Apart from that it was decent. There was a tv, towels supplied, wifi worked in my room and the shower had hot water.

We stayed at Sakal just up from Serendipity Beach as it was recommended to us by someone who had lived in Snooky for a few years, good location at the top of the town with easy walking to the beach restaurants and bars.
If you want clean simple accommodation this is a good option, nothing flash but for the price its fair value.
Would probably stay elsewhere next time as there are so many options

I stayed in the dorm room five nights. It's cheap and that is what you should expect, but i would say it was ok. Until they robbed us in the night while sleeping there! There is a rude old man who stays there months and said it's been happening often. The management was nice, but does nothing with it, not even warning, nor trying to catch the thief or putting lock on the door.
If you stay here, make sure you have NO VALUABLES in room, as you will lose them. Plus it doesnt feel good to know someone came to your bed and stole your bag from next to your pillow.
