5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I stayed in the all female dorm as this was more comfortable for me as a solo female traveller. There were 5 single beds and the room was huge. The monsoon shower was AMAZING! We had new clean towels everyday and shampoo & body wash was provided. There were also lockers for our personal belongings which was great. This hotel... More

A group of three of us stayed here for 2 nights whilst we did the killing Fields and S21 in Phnom Pehn. The location is excellent and the rooms are fantastic. Very clean and a lovely, powerful shower complimented the room very well. Unfortunately if you are on a budget I would not recommended staying here. The food in the... More

Thanks for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us we will pass on the compliments to the cleaners and other staff, although it is shame you think people shouldn’t stay here because of two pieces of toast. We do also have free flow coffee and juice for $1.50. But duly noted on the menu is now... More

Dorm rooms are really well set out allowing for privacy and space. Comfy beds and fleece blanket. Shower is incredible!! Especially after a nice swim in the pool. Bar and food a bit pricey seeing as you can get it for 1/2 price just down the road. Good at organising trips and transport.

The best hostel I've stayed in on this trip! It's clean and the staff are very professional. I got the 5-single bedded dorm and it was spacious! Movie at the bar around 8pm with reasonable priced food.

This is NOT a high five star hotel, but for the price it provides high services. Cost benefit ratio is well worth it. Location is not great, but the ownership is lovely. Decent food, pool was better then some of the high end hotels, and the owners make you feel like part of the family.

Really nice hotel/hostel. I don't normally write reviews but this deserves special mention. I stayed in the dorm - large beds, solid (no wobbles), spotless linen, clean bathroom, like a hotel. We all loved lying on our beds, enjoying a real proper mattress! Pool and restaurant area is gorgeous, bit like a resort (does not feel like a hostel at... More

The 8 bed dorm room at the hotel was amazing! the room was very spacious, had a balcony, great beds and even better bathroom. Excellent value for money at $5- 6 US a night. Also located close to the lucky supermarket and central market you are able to get transport anywhere. As it is a hotel not hostel there is... More

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. The rooms are very modern with OK beds. Air con excellent. WiFi excellent. Food from the pool bar cost more than local restaurants but it was tasty and convenient. Nice pool. Close to central market but not much around in the evening. Would return.
