“Great Guesthouse in every way”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights at the start of May but could have spent our entire time in Cambodia here! Due to it being low season it was $8 for a double fan room or $10 for a double A/C. We decided on A/C which had a TV, fridge, ensuite bathroom and bright white sheets!

We decided to use the hotels tuk-tuk service for the temples as it seemed it would make the experience more stress-free. We paid a total of $30 for 2 days including the grand circuit, the mini circuit and being at Angkor Wat for sunrise on the second day. I think we might have been able to get it a couple of dollars cheaper but as I said before, we wanted ease and reliability. The staff also let us borrow a guidebook to the temples free of charge so we could read up on the history etc of each temples.

We ended up booking our next transport through the hotel too which was a sleeper night bus to Sihanoukville. They gave the same price as the cheapest we had seen around the rest of Siem Reap ($14) so we booked with them. After spending the day in town the staff let us use an empty room to shower and freshen up in!

I would highly recommend this establishment!

My Why Not (Manager), his family and friends run this place. It has a family feel to it. Angkor Wonder is 5 minutes to the city center and about 20 minutes to the Angkor Wat Temple complex. Rooms are very clean and very suitable. Mr Why Not will do what he can to make sure you enjoy your stay. He has his own Tuk Tuk drivers so no need to haggle. I would recommend this place to anyone. I stayed about 12 days and I enjoyed every minute of it. I

Room Tip: Any of these rooms are good.

We've stayed 5 nights in this hostel ... it's basic and not always spot-clean. Moreover, the bathroom wasn't great, but we don't complain, it was ok for us. If you are looking for comfort, don't go there, there are plenty of resort and expensive hotels around, but if you are a backpacker or traveling on a tight budget, it's definitively worth it. This hostel is really cheap and the owner- Mr Why not- is a really great guy, he can advise you as he knows pretty well the city and surrounding having worked as a tuk-tuk driver before. The staff is friendly and the hotel is right in the center. I would recommend it!

Me and my husband stayed there for almost 5 days to enjoy our honeymoon trip. We had our delayed flight and we arrived at Siem Reap at almost 11pm but still the tuktuk driver, Mr. Pha is very warm and accommodating when he fetched us from the airport (free airport pick up included in our package). This helped us a lot since it's our first time in Siem Reap. When we arrived at the hostel Samoa (hope I spell it right) is also very friendly and accommodating. Mr.Why Not and Samoa even taught us and plan for our itineraries, that makes our stay in Siem Reap a memorable one! They even provide us with a tuktuk driver (Mr.Pha) to tour us around Angkor Wat. We had a very affordable private room, complete with personal ref, tv, large comfy bed, cabinets, and a private bathroom. We really enjoyed the delicious breakfasts served to us everyday, with the beautiful, eldest daughter of Mr. Why Not as the restaurant crew..
From reading the reviews before I booked to this hostel, and until finally we experience what we have read..ever wonder why this is called Angkor Wonder Hostel? and why is the owner Mr. Why Not? You have to find it for yourself... :-)

I stayed for 3 nights at this great place. The family is amazing. They are so helpful. They give you a lot of informations and help you with everything you need. "Mr. Why not" knows also a lot about the area, because he worked as a Tuk Tuk Driver before. His english is pretty good.
On my last day, i visited one more day the Angkor temples and checked out in the morning, because i have to check out in the morning, because i took the nightbus to Sihanoukville.
As i came back from the trip in the afternoon, they offerd me a spare room to rast a little bit (because they said, that i will not get a lot of sleep on the nightbus) and also i could use the shower, before i went to the bus.
I only can highly recommend this place. When i go back to Siem Reap- i know where i stay :-)!

We arranged a pick up from the bus station, the bus was very late but we still had our lift waiting for us to take us to the hostel. Mr Y Not is a fantastic host, nothing is too much trouble and he helped us with what trips we wanted to do. he sorted us with a Tuk Tuk driver for a sunrise trip to the temples, our driver Lucky was fantastic, we were with him all day and showed us a lot of things. Location wise really good, night markets and pub street only a five minute walk away.
The hostel itself was great, very friendly staff, they really made you feel at home. Rooms were basic but clean, bathroom a bit small but no real complaints. This is a hostel more than a hotel, a real family ran place that makes you feel like part of the family when you are there. Really nice little courtyard area outside to chill in at the end of the day, and a fridge full of ice cold beer to purchase. Then there is Mr. Beer O Clock, what a star!!!! If you stay here you must have an evening drinking with him, really interesting character and lot's of fun!!! We spent 4 nights here and we were very sad to leave at the end of it, thaks for a great stay :-)
