I stayed here on the express orders of a friend of mine, because he said I'd meet cool people if I did. He wasn't wrong. I literally met 10 or 15 expats in the time I was here. The bar has a really nice garden feel with its own official bar cat Pumpkin. They do their own Kampot Pepper infused... More

I've stayed there for 5 nights in March. It's right in the heart of Phnom Penh but off the main road so u can't hear the traffic. The rooms are clean and nice. The guest house has a bar which is always busy. Great place to meet people. I liked it so much that I stayed there most of my... More

I spent several afternoons enjoying the beautiful setting of the Mini-Banana's relaxed bar setting. With available wi-fi I was also able to get some good work done. This also became a central meeting place for several of us to get together before going out to explore the city. It was also a great place to come back to and have... More

Staff were lovely and the drinks were delicious we stopped in here for a drink on our way back to our hotel and were not disappointed. The staff friendly and the ambience was very chilled and relaxed. Worth a visit if you are nearby.

The room is small, but really fair for the price. You got everything you need around you, supermarket is not far, also food from all over the world. It's walking distance to the Royal Palace (20 min). The owners are extremely friendly and open, speak a lot of languages (perfect in english, french) - you will feel at home immediately.... More

Bas and Pauline, a lovely couple working at Mini Banana will welcome you in a very friendly way. The rooms are simple yet clean and the dorm has been newly renovated and looks great. The bar is very friendly and you can meet a lot of nice people. It is also close to many city activities. On the weekends, it... More

I was searching for a place to stay for one night when I arrived here in this area of the city. I was tired of searching and the only wish was sleeping. Here was very cheap and soft extremely good, I did not suspect so good, but here there was.

Stayed here in a double room sharing a bathroom for 10 usd, one of the lowest prices we could find in Phnom Penh during the low season. The place has some nice (multilingual: Dutch, English, Khmer, French, etc) staff around, ready for a chat around the bar, it's clean and, as I've said, cheap! Would definitely stay again when I'm...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In a genuine Khmer neighborhood, in a free-from-traffic-sounds back alley just behind the busy nightlife of Street 278, lies Mini Banana Guesthouse. With its jungle-layback look we create a nice hide away guesthouse with bar and restaurant for the backpackers. With the local Khmer and expats dropping in at night-time we offer you a real Khmer experience with a travellers edge. With the completely renovated A/C dorm, and 7 private rooms (A/C or Fan), we provide accommodation for every taste and budget. We can help you with your visa and other services, and can provide you with information about the many things to do in Pnom Penh. With our new kitchen we can provide you day and night with the taste's of East and West from our new menu. During the day, a chillout vibe rules the guesthouse, engage in chess, watch a movie, read a book in the many lounge area's, and share idea's with the many backpackers. At night the vibe transforms in an energetic atmosphere, the bar lights up, the locals drop in, the pool table attracts its guests, and with the right amount of people we might even get the poker chips out. ... more   less
