The 18-bed dorm is awesome! Each bed is its own unit with a sliding door, air-con and lights inside, plug-ins, and a huge locker beneath. You seriously don't feel like you are sharing a room with 18 people! The hostel is a short tuk tuk ride away from anywhere you want to go. The front desk staff can help you... More

I've stayed at many hostels in many different countries, and had quite a good stay at eighty8. The owner was a very nice and friendly gent, and my girlfriend and I even got the pleasure of enjoying a drink with his mother who was in from England. Staff was helpful and pleasant. I would stay here again. We stayed in... More

We arrived at the hostel at 5am as our night bus was early. We were let in and allowed to chill there until check-in which was awesome of them. They even let us check in slightly earlier (as soon as the beds were ready) as we had to wait so long. The staff were super helpful and friendly. Booking buses... More

The location was pretty convenient for us as it was at the same road of KFC and a grocery shop, plus within walking distance to the mosque. Hence, finding halal eateries was not that hard. Night can be scary, as like any other ASEAN countries. So, avoid if you must to walk around the area at night (if safety is... More

Myself and my friend stayed here and it was our first hostel in Cambodia. During the day the atmosphere was nice with ambient music - it was low season so it wasn't too busy. Pool looked nice although we never used it. Our major problem with the place was our dorm room looked out into the social area - you... More

I have stayed in many hostel around SE Asia (as well as currently working in one) and have to say this one is in my top three. Definitely best in Cambodia!! I booked a pod room which gave extra privacy with still great value for money as a regular dorm. The food and drink were very well priced and delicious... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for one night at this hostel in order to visit the killing fields after traveling through Vietnam and before heading to the Angkor temples. We had great expectations given the reviews, but our private double room left me a little disappointed. No windows, a sterile light, bathroom separated only by a curtain so not much... More

Thanks for the feedback and sorry you were a little disappointed in the room, this is our only room without a window, but it offers a large double bed with a little more privacy for couples and one night staying guests. Whenever possible we are more than happy to re-allocate you another room if so required......this room will soon become... More

My boyfriend and me were here for 2 days in august. The hostel staff is fine. The building is ok with the pool and places to seat outside but we were a bit sad with a room without windows. It was not written like that when we booked it. The room was ok and the bathroom inside too. The drinks... More
