Was fun place cheap poolside room very clean big no TV but didn't need. Perfect location. We were oldest people there fifties. If you don't mind a little music till midnight an youths parting you will love it as we did.

Room Tip: Poolside room good one flight stairs but bar and pool night MKT and everything one min walk.

The roof top bar on the beach helped create a fantastic atmosphere. Some great cocktails and excellent food. Wonderfully relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. Great party feel to the place, yet the rooms and dorms were all lovely and quiet. It was fully booked the first three nights I was in Siem Reap and I had to go elsewhere, so book early to avoid disappointment.
The beds were clean and comfortable, the staff ever so friendly and helpful. Work was nearing completion on the extensions and pool, when I was there, so it should be even better now.

Room Tip: Book ahead as it is often full up.

Besides being a clean hostel and having a helpful and friendly staff, it has a pool with its own bar on first floor and a great rooftop (banana) bar and restaurant with amazing food and drinks... Perfect place to meet other backpackers. Its a FUN place. Lots of plans for travelers everyday.

Will definitely go back when traveling to Cambodia again.

We styed there only 2 nights but now i regret that we couldnt be there for long or actually work there !!! The Place has the best localization. Internet is verry ggood, staff is very friendly, helpfull, speak really good english. I mean i just dont know what to add as theis place is just perfect. I wouldnt reccommend it for Familly traveling with kids as it would just disturbe them same as it would disturbe young backpackers. Seriously Guys Thank You For Hospitality and Everything!!!

Staff: Firstly I want to praise the staff. They are super friendly, put a lot of effort into you having a good stay and help where they can. Their English is pretty good and you can ask them for or about almost anything.
Facilities: The hostel has everything you need. First off all it has got a pool which is pretty awesome for a hostel. Then there is the rooftop bar which is a great place to be whether during the day or at night to relax, enjoy some music and company or to get awesome food, which brings me to the kitchen. They have a kitchen in the roof top bar (not for your own use) with great staff. The food is really, really good and I haven't had anything I did like. I just didn't expect to find that in a hostel.
People: In general you can expect people staying here that are outgoing, looking for party, fun etc. The owners were/are backpackers themselves and know what you are looking for. They organise a lot of stuff like Booze Cruise etc.
Location: The location is pretty perfect. You can reach anything easily by tuk tuk or even walk there (pub street 5min max walking distance, night market easily reachable on foot as well)
Value for money: Its not the cheapest place in Siem Reap but 7$ or so a night aren't expensive either. However with the money you spend here you not only get a great place to stay with all the above mentioned but also you can be assured that all the staff there get a fair pay as well as support with their career and education. They are a social responsible business (check out their Facebook page for more information). Travelling to a country like Cambodia I think you should be willing to give a little (be nice to the people there, spend money to support the local economy, make sure the people employed get a fair pay etc., preserve the nature and don't litter, support torturing of animals etc.) to receive A LOT.
All in all PERFECT place to stay no matter whether its just for a couple of days, weeks or months.

Room Tip: If you like your sleep maybe avoid getting a room on the ground floor at the pool area. There may be noise and music from 9am on or so. But in the end its a hostel so you have to expect some noise.
