I stayed for 2 nights in a twin room on the ground floor ($5/night). My room itself was nice, the beds were comfy and it was pretty good value, no bedbugs. However, on the second night, the entire hallway inside was literally covered with large flying bugs, without exaggerating there were HUNDREDS of them. I had to put a towel... More

Hello You had the misfortune of coming in this period where many flying insects (inoffensive) bored us all. Alas, during the rainy season in Cambodia, we can do anything. Fortunately it only lasts a few days. I am very surprised that my receptionist was rude to you, this is absolutely in these habits, his nickname is Smiley and people love... More

You can visit pagoda (reclining buddha, wat phnum sway). You can lose yourself in the big typical Cambodia market. Hang out in beautiful and quiet countryside. For... More

The building for the guesthouse is beautiful, with a lot of big space and wood everywhere. The rooms on the first floor are just great, clean and affordable, with high ceilings, wooden floor and very quiet too. We stayed there with my husband for a week and the staff has always been very pleasant, Smiley is willing to help the... More

Great place with great staff. Went out of their way to give good service. Let me use their phone to organise a trekking trip with different tour operators and postponed my bus to Siem reap one day when I didn't feel well.

Nice rooms with high ceilings and good ventilation (not too common in Cambodia or in Asia in general). The price was fair for the quality and the rooms were clean (especially by Cambodian standards). I have only given this place three stars, however, because, although the rooms were decent and there was a nice chill out area overlooking the lake... More

A really nice guesthouse overlooking a lake with superb sunsets. The rooms are spacious and cool, and the food is very good. Really helpful staff - a truly fab place to stop for a few nights whilst exploring Rattanakiri and the local volcanic lake.

great place to stay, only four out of five stars because of its location which isn't really walking distance from the market (esp at night). otherwise very friendly staff, good food and the room was a good deal.

Smiley (at reception) was the highlight of our stay. He was more than accommodating (we are a school group of 10) and helped us book transport & accommodation in Phnom Penh as well as organising a tour to the Yeak Laom Lake.
