Stayed in double room, good air conditioning, brilliant value for money. Situated near all sorts of great tucker on the street, and more bars than you will need. Very helpful, and a little cinema attached to boot.

You can't have a night club with loud music all night on the roof and expect to have people sleep there. The stairs in the hotel are big and wide and it allows the noise to travel into every room. I took the advise of the tuk tuk driver I told him I wanted a cheep hotel in a quiet... More

Didn't stay here but great rooftop bar for casual drinks! Pool tables, nice lighting and really cheap drinks. Great vibe about the place and open to anyone (not just people in the hostel). $1 draft beer and cocktails from $2. Happy hour finishes at 9.

Staff completely into their phones 24/7. You stay there waiting for attention but whatsapp messages and favebook are more important than you! Rooftop bar is nice but same atmosphere as downstairs. Choose something else, as Phnom Penh has plenty of options for you!

Didn't stay here, however, came for a night out on the rooftop and it was amazing! So much fun, super cheap and great service from the staff - should definitely go for a night of partying in Cambodia!!

It was a really friendly vibe, there is also a rooftop bar which is relaxed and "happy" friendly. The rooms were air conditioned and clean. Enjoyed the stay here. It's in a great location too, couple minutes walk from the food market and night market.

Decent ish hostel in the heart of Phnom Penh. Reasonably priced food with a good cinema next door. Slept in a 10 person dorm with no issues, fans were great and we even had a balcony. Wifi only worked downstairs and was pretty iffy on the rooftop bar (which has some pretty great views but also two very run-down pool... More

I wouldn't recommend staying here, the rooms and bathrooms are filthy, don't get cleaned and half of the toilets don't flush so everything is just left there to smell. However, the rooftop bar is a really nice place to chill and the food and shakes are so good, so I would recommend going to the rooftop bar but not actually... More

Not a nice place to stay to be honest, toilets smelt and looked like they'd never been cleaned, dirty bed sheets, dirty floors. However if you do stay here I would recommend staying on the top bunk rather than the bottom, the fans and air con only hit the top and the bottoms sweaty and hot, none of the air... More

Expensive and basic for what it is.. however I think this is because of the great roof top bar that entertains during the day and night - pool, beer pong, darts, good WiFi in the bar only. Great place to meet other backpackers and very central to the centre. No hot water and basic rooms
