We went to MM in Phnom Penh two times. The first time we stayed in a doubleroom which was perfect - very clean and sweet paintings on the wall. The second time we stayed in a mixed dorm which was okay. The restaurant there is literally the bomb! The western food like the couscoussalad or the chickenwrap are sooo tasty,...

This hostel is super great for young people hoping to socialise. The rooms are great and the showers are hot. However the service at the hostel restaurant is not the best. The waiters/waitresses never actually came to us when we sat down.. we always had to wave them down. And it takes a long time to get your meal. Also...

This place does an excellent job of catering to backpackers. Comfy dorms with the necessary amenities, and a swimming pool to chill out in. You can book tours and transport around Phnom Penh and other parts of Cambodia easily as well. Its located within walking distance of Street 278, which is frequented by tourists and has a few bars and...

Clean rooms, stayed in the villa side. Quiet aside from the dogs outside (which are alll over Cambodia). This was the place we spent our first 2 nights of 2.5 week holiday. Excellent, calm.
