This was the final place I stayed during my backpacking trip, so I felt like nothing could really surprise me, but I was very much pleasantly surprised by the service and accommodation at Camory Backpackers Hostel. They really seem to care about guests, and are willing to go the extra mile to anticipate needs and help you have a great trip.
A couple examples: I was traveling by myself, and they suggested that I may want to join two girls for a Tuk Tuk to see the Killing Fields and S 21 so we all could pay a little less, and offered to ask them if this was OK the next time they were in the lobby. They weren't pushy, simply wanting us all to have a more affordable experience. I may not have known to ask on my own (they were in a different dorm room), so this really worked out of me.
Also, I'd booked an all-girls dorm, but this was full when I arrived. (It's pretty common for hostels in the area to have this sort of situation.) Instead of putting me in the mixed dorm (which would have been fine for me, and standard at any other hostel), they put me in the other dorm room, which was empty, so my request for a non-mixed dorm could be honored. If you have traveled in SE Asia, you know that this is some NEXT LEVEL customer service.
Dorm rooms themselves are great. Really hot showers (another luxury in Cambodia hostels), super clean (made beds every day, with cute little towel origami), super good A/C, private lights/chargers, curtains for privacy (!!!), and huge lockers with their own locks. Basically backpacker's heaven.
Breakfast is stellar.
Good location- Right on the river, so short walk to the night market and other attractions.
All in all, highly, highly recommended.
