Love it love it love it :) It is just few meters away from the river side, just opposite of the local market, in the middle of bustling Phnom Penh North.
I spent three nights here and I have no complaint at all :-) I stayed in a fan dorm room which is, well, on the top floor. The dorm is pretty big and got attached 2 attached bathrooms/toilets (and there are lots of toilet rolls too!!!) which is very convenient. And its clean, too! The mattress is good, the lines is clean, the towel smell just nice. What to complaint there? Hot? Hello... this is SEAsia! Wanna a/c room but at fan price? Go somewhere else, not in Phnom Penh, that's for sure.
The chill out (common) area is cool too. I'd choose whichever table or couch that I like, sit for how many hours that I like; even sleep on it! Watch the movie/TV, get some drinks at reasonable Phnom Penh's price. Most important, hang out with other backpackers! I could understand why other backpackers that I met (that have been in Phnom Penh and this backpackers house) before I came here strongly recommended this place.
The staffs are friendly and helpful. I feel immediately comfy here! Come and stay here if you come to Phnom Penh!
