Was traveling solo in Cambodia during mid January and decided on European guest house through the high ratings on both lonely planet and TripAdvisor.
Spent three nights in a private with an ensuite bathroom. And three nights in the 6 bed mixed dorm and have no complaints whatsoever about both setups. Clean, 24 hour laundry service, hot water, towels provided in the single private. Hot water in the dorm showers as well and the bathroom kept very clean.
The lounge area is an excellent place to kick your feet up and relax. Good looking bar counter, lounge chairs, tables with ample space between them. Its perfect for a conversation with fellow travelers or even if you just want to kick back with a book.
Didn't eat here all that much but the smoothies are good and so is the Cambodia tap beer. ;)
The real attraction here is the staff. They're extremely helpful, well mannered, good natured people. The owner Murray has a great sense of humor, as does Nicole (the manager). Helped me out with any queries I had and were great to chat with at the bar. I was offered a free Tuk Tuk pick up from the bus station. They helped me arrange for a Tuk Tuk for my temple tours. One can even book their bus tickets through the staff.
All in all, great experience. I know where I'll be staying my next time around in Siem Reap. If there's a negative , its the fact that the kitchen isn't open to the guests. But that doesn't seem to be the norm in SE Asia. So again, no complaints.
