“Don't Miss staying at You Khin House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

This was the highlight of my month-long trip to Myanmar and Cambodia! Muoy You runs a wonderful hotel, but the highlight, for me, was visiting the school and learning about her projects. The children from all walks of life are getting an amazing, well-rounded education. They learn three languages, manners, music and more. It was amazing walking into the hotel and hearing young children playing instruments. The food was wonderful, other guests at the hotel were interesting, and Muoy You is a kind, gentle and generous woman. Don't miss this experience!

Room Tip: My room was great. It was on the top floor and overlooked the patio/pool area.

We stayed here as a family of four for three nights. Service and staff were excellent and friendly, as was You Khin house itself - terrific paintings and garden. The highlight was a terrific christmas dinner for all the hotel guests. Our room was a little shabby, but this wasn't a big issue. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

My hubby and I stayed here for 3 nights. Overall, we had quite a pleasant experience at the hotel. Thought the main pros and cons were below.

Pros:
1. Soothing atmosphere and decor - the hotel wraps around a lovely courtyard with a sparkling swimming pool and plenty of greenery. There's also artwork displayed on almost every wall of the hotel. On almost every floor, there are large common areas where you can sit, read, and relax.
2. Delicious food - we were thoroughly impressed how flavorful the food (lunch / dinner) was at the hotel. The Khmer noodles with coconut milk sauce and fish was especially good!

Cons:
1. Aggressive tuk tuk drivers - There are usually about 2 to 4 tuk tuk drivers parked outside the hotel door, but they always lurk next to the door asking when your next trip will be and how long you plan to stay in the hotel. After a while, you get tired of being perceived as nothing but dollar signs.
2. Hidden location - The hotel is a bit hard to find. It would be helpful if the hotel would give out maps to the hotel guests so that they can provide them to tuk tuk drivers.

We had 2 wonderful days at You Khin House. A very nice location in the middle of the town. The room was comfortable enough for us and even not having all time very hot water was ok as well. We were impressed with all the kids around and how lovely they get teached. We can just recommend to stay at You Khin Guesthouse to see with how much love kids get teached and supported.

I enjoyed Phnom Penh a great deal, and the You Khin House was very comfortable. My only criticism is that it was very difficult to understand who worked at the hotel versus who was there to work/volunteer for the school on-site. I loved seeing the kids in their music lessons, cooking crepes, and in swim class. The cause is great, and for that your stay is doing more than providing you with a bed it's supporting something important. I would just encourage the folks at You Khin to make it clearer to guests who they need to interact with on hotel related matters so as to not create awkward interactions with school volunteers.

Great little hotel, by staying here you can do your bit for a very worthwhile cause. Really interesting stay, you see things here you will see in no other hotel. The food in 'the four ladies' kitchen is brilliant, proper home cooked Khmer cuisine. Beautiful.

The lady who welcomed us was very supportive and charming. The room was spacious, cosy and clean. After an exhausting trip we were so gratefull for the great, great dinner, which was provided at the hotel. Great value for price - we really recommend this guesthouse/hotel!!!
