Great hostel if your looking for a good time! The first night we had a room for 4 people as its all the had and it was luxury! Amazing big beds & a great bathroom.. Hard to come by when your backpacking! They had a roof top bar which was where the party was at.. They play water pong though.....

I am a 31 year old female solo traveller who spent one night here. Clean rooms, nice bed and lovely, helpful staff. You can party or you can be chilled out, it's the best of both worlds. I had a few drinks in the bar and easily met other people and had a great night. Definitely recommend!

One of the loveliest hostels we've come across so far in Asia, staff were so lovely and fun the bar staff made sure everyone was having fun and at 11ish everyone is rounded up to go out which makes making friends easy. Food in the restaurant was lovely too. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Nice vibe, good rooms with big comfy beds, fun people, good bar upstairs, location is fine but probably not the best (had to get a tuktuk everywhere but this might be the case generally in Phnom Penh), hot showers, great services offered which makes it very easy for backpackers, however we made the mistake of eating here twice, once for...

Best staff I've come across since travelling. The bar is extremely popular with backpackers and everyone goes there for drinks even if they're staying elsewhere. Great dorms, very spacious and huge beds! The food was brilliant and we found ourselves eating downstairs every meal time. Oh and Seb is one sexy beast ;)

We arrived here early and immediately the staff were more than helpful with help and assistance planning our onward journey and sorting our thai visas out.

Every night is incredibly loud until about midnight from surrounding bars and clubs, gets old. Rooms are over priced for the city. No free breakfast, which is lame. The location is good during the day though. I'd try somewhere else next time.
