This little hostel is in a great location and is great value for money. The owner is exceptionally helpful, but if you're after a hostel that has a communal feel this isn't the one for you. Your room key is also left on a tray on the front desk which was a little concerning for me but is fairly common...

First and foremost we must mention Gilles and the other staff - all so lovely and helpful. Gilles had so many great tips from which ATMs to use, which temple tour may suit us best and was just so cool to talk to about life in Siem Reap and Cambodia in general. We felt welcome from his first email and...

Arrived late from our bus from Laos, and our room must have been given away as we were upgraded for the night. It was a decent enough room, with a fan and ensuite. The bathroom was ok, nothing luxurious but did the job. The beds were a little bit hard. The owner was very friendly and accomodating.

It was a relief being in this place because of Mr. Gilles who runs this place. Being a French man, running a hostel in Siem Reap turns out to be beneficiary for the travellers as he is someone who speaks proper English, is well aware of the scams and threats around for tourists and warns you about it every morning...

Gilles, the owner, is very friendly and knows exactly where everything is. The location is perfect. Maximum of 5 minutes to pub street. Rooms are basic but you get what you pay for. The curtains were closed when we walked in, it was when we looked behind them that we realised why. Please clean this up Gilles! It was disgusting....

The guy who runs the place, Gilles, is very friendly and nice. The place is very clean. It's a good value for money. And it's just 5 minutes away by walking from the old Siem Reap market. I recommend it to those in a shoe string budget.

The hotel is located very close to the center, at walking distance from all the bars and. The restaurants. The French owner was very friendly, and makes a chat with everybody. The restaurant serves some great breakfasts. The road is a bit busy, but not really a problem.
