“not good enough”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

I have never been at a Guest House where the staff went out of their way to be rude, even openly sneering. They made it perfectly clear that they had no respect for foreigners whatsoever. Yes the rooms are reasonable but I was very unhappy there. If people want your business they should treat you well.

I was recommended this place by a Khmer friend, as it is popular amongst locals as a good place to stay when visiting PP. At $7 per night you can't go wrong and the rooms are sufficiently clean, and serviced every day. There is a lift. The staff are friendly and free albeit slow wifi in rooms. The Burly is in a good location with good value restaurants only a short stroll away. It is close to Olympic stadium and Orussy market.

first of all this is not a hotel with full services that travellers are used to expecting. It's cheap and good enough for a night's sleep and staff are friendly. But let's list out some of the pros and cons anyway.

Pros
- Affordable
- Reasonably clean but not immaculate
- 2 Restaurants across guesthouse that serves reasonably good food.
- free wifi on every floor
- friendly staff
- lift
- Reasonably close to most sights, like the genocide museum it's very near.
- air-conditioning available. I'm glad to have this!

Cons
- noisy
- extremely slow wifi
- small rooms, toilets and beds. If you're a european / american sized big dude. This might be a bit small for you.
- can't lock the room from inside. We woke up once at 9am with our doors opened but figured it must be the cleaner who left it open!! Very unsafe.
- Do not believe the pictures you see on their website!!!
- Dim lighting.

If you're a backpacker this is an ok guesthouse to stay in.

Room Tip: ask for higher floors

Stumbled upon this guesthouse by accident, and really appreciated that it was out of the main fray of backpacker guesthouses. It was very clean and peaceful, especially on the upper floors. You can walk to local markets, and Four Corners Coffee Roasters (no drinks, but great source for beans as they roast on site!) is just across the street. Comfortable stay and very helpful staff. When checking out, I had to leave one of my suitcases behind as I've been hauling too much on this trip. After just a minute or two the staff went out of their way to come after me, thinking I had forgotten it. Would definitely stay here again next time I'm in Phnom Penh!

We really enjoyed staying here: it was cheap, clean and even a bit luxorious by backpacker standards. The elevator was a huge plus.

We had a double bedded room with fan and cold water The price was $US 7 per night, which we thought was good value. The staff were friendly and helpful. The Burly Guest House is a 10 min walk down the road from Capitol Tours and is close to the local sites. We recommend Asian Spice for cheap but freshly prepared eats. If we were to come to Phnom Penh again - we would stay at the Burly Guest House
