“Fun and enjoyable”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

The Siem Reap Hostel was a great place to stay. They have a swimming pool which is perfect after a long hot day at Angkor Wat. They also have a pool table and a fussball table, if you want some more fun ha-ha. The location is good and only a 10 minute walk to all the main restaurants and cafes.

Room Tip: I stayed in the dorms on the 1st floor, which were good.

My stay at this hostel was great! The service is good & the staff are helpful. The common areas are great to hang out & meet people. The pool is clean & refreshing. The beds are comfy & big lockers for all your stuff. The wifi was always working well. I was able to book a bus from the hostel & they helped organise tuktuk drivers for the day as well. They offer a free pick up service as well which i gladly excepted & the driver was friendly & helpful as he even pulled over to wind down the plastic when it rained.

Thank you, indeed thanks to all reviewers, especially of late, who have scored us so highly. 13 in a row! Hope I haven't cursed us! Staff here at the hostel, including our tuk tuk drivers, have been working hard over our busiest high season ever. so you can have a good time. Your kind reviews and top scores are great reward for the team's efforts and our continuing popularity means the Hostel can grow - we put our staff amoung our highest priorities in this regard. It's awesome to see our beautiful Hostel climbing up the rankings. :-) G and D

This is one of my favourite hostels ever: It's great value (USD 6.- for a bed in a 6-bed-dorm with a/c, private shower, separate private toilet, huge lockers, private balcony and a swimming pool! Pay USD 2.- more and you get a buffet style breakfast with fresh fruit, cereals, toast, coffee, tea, juices), is very clean, has got lots of communal areas and the people there are great! Enjoyed my stay there 100%.

Not going to add anything except to say that everything was catered for and to find faults would be nitpicking.
Specific highlights are the music, the pool, well run bus tickets and tuk tuks to the temples. Very good value.

Really great hostel, the rooms were really nice, space under your bed to lock away your bags, good air con and really nice bathroom. In a great location to get into town!

The staff were helpful booking tuktuks to Angkor watt etc and offering advice. However the overnight bus that they booked us on to Phnom Penh was horrific, definitely look elsewhere for that!

The pool also wasn't great we went to a different hotel to use their pool for the day instead. Overall great value for money and excellent location!

Hey and thanks for the perfect score. We chose our bus companies based on safety and quality of service but of course guests are welcome to shop around. Re the pool: Some folk do like pools in the sun, however we love the fact ours is under cover, especially in the heat of the dry season - keeping it nice and cool after a day out at the temples - check our other reviews here about this! We have it serviced daily by professionals to make sure it's ready for a refreshing dip when you are. Thanks for staying and hope we see you again someday.

Great hostel. Staff were friendly, rooms were very clean, separate shower and toilet in room for 6. Towel rails galore were a bonus.
Really comfortable bed with own plug socket and light. Air con and fan in room worked really well and it was great to have a pool to be able to cool off in.
Good buffet breakfast for $2 but other food there was pretty expensive.
No towel provided was provided but a great place to stay and I would definitely return.

Super happy you enjoyed the Hostel as much as we do - thanks for the kind words and the great score.
Re meal costs: We do our best to keep these down while providing quality food - prices are comparable to eateries of similar standard - we cater for western tastes as well providing local dishes at a range of prices. Always happy to recommend some of our favourite alternatives around town.
On the assumption that many backpackers are carrying their own, we provide towels to dorm guests who request them for 50c to cover laundry costs. Guests who chose to go a little more upmarket and stay in our beautiful private rooms are provided towels for free. But don't get me wrong readers - our dorms are lovely as well!
Thanks for staying and saying - hope we do see you again someday.
Cheers

I like everything in this hostel, from its lively ambiance, smiling and helpful staffs to the facilities and cleanliness. At the time I came to SR, I didnt know it was still peak season for tourism, so when I popped up there in the middle of the night without booking ahead, not only SR hostel but whole town seemed to be booked up, so I had to wait for the next day to stay there... There are lots of things for your entertainment there even if you travel solo but simply just the enjoyable music and the relaxing atmostphere are enough for me. Everything is convinient and environmentally friendly, I can say. If I come back I'll book head, i promise =D
