The private rooms that face the road are a lot brighter and nicer (with sliding doors and a balcony) than the rooms on the other side of the building which are much darker - but cooler as they get less sun. Worth knowing and maybe asking for a road facing room. The air con doesn't work at all so may... More

We had to stay over as our hostel could not extend our stay and we needed a place to crash before our night bus left at 2am. 1. When I made the enquirer I was quoted a different price per person to when I checked in. 2. There is mould in the bathroom, the aircon was not working and the... More

I'm a budget traveler myself and have to choose the cheaper way of sleeping. Rooms are cheap to stay a long time, with fan 4 usd and with airco 6... More

Good location and nice rooms for what you're paying. Also the people were very friendly and helpful. A lot nicer than we were expecting for a cheap hostel. Decent comfortable beds and good aircon. The stairs were a bit of a killer with the backpacks and upset with didn't ask for a balcony but over all happy with our stay.

We arrived here without a booking and were relieved to find somewhere to put down our heads. The location of the hostel is good and the rooms are big, however ours really needed a paint job. I felt that it wasn't very clean either. There were stains on my towel and pillow. Staff were helpful but the lobby is dark... More

After a long bus ride I got to my hostel only to be told they didn't have my booking and didn't have my room. Another guy turned up and was told the same thing. We left together to find somewhere but had such difficulty because it was Chinese New year. Eventually we turned up here and they had one room... More

Very basic room but cheap. We had just done an extremely long bus from Bangkok to siem reap and had not any accommodation booked. 4 of us asked a tuc tuc driver to take us to a decent hostel near the main town.. Dropped us off here and we were pleasantly surprised at the price and what we actually got..... More
