This place is magical! Clean, uber-affordable, good food, loud when you want it, quiet when you need it, and the drink specials...oh the drink specials!

Though what truly makes this place special are the people who run it and the manner in which they do so. When you walk in it is apparent that the staff is happy to be there and eager to assist you with making your trip as memorable as possible. Some struggled with English, but there was no miscommunication that couldn't be remedied with a smile and grabbing someone who could better understand.

Gus and Driess are always present. Interacting, smiling, encouraging, and the champions of creating this extremely positive vibe.

5 days was much to short. Cannot wait to go back!

The place is so popular that the staff is a bit overwhelmed. When u check in, you might have to wait a while as I did. But it's no big deal. It's definitely the perfect place to meet people and have a few drinks before hitting pub st. book in advance for all your days you want to stay. I had to switch hotels since I only booked one night! :(

This is probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Run in a socially responsible manner, the hostel has a warm and friendly atmosphere with regular events that encourage everyone to make new friends. The food is really good (beef lok lak is awesome!) and happy hour at the bar is ridiculously cheap!

Oh, and the pool is just the icing on an already bloody tasty cake. Great stuff! I will be back as soon as I can...

I enjoyed staying at this hotel. Location is great, just few minutes walk from Pub Street, a great spot to eat and party. Great atmosphere at the hostel... perfect for solo travelers and young people. Staff is great, they always smile and really friendly. Good thing, they have restaurant. so really value for money I paid. I really suggest you to stay here!!!

Booked the private double which was extremely reasonable for a private room.

The hostel arranged a free pick up @ the bus station & even though our bus was near 3hrs late he was still there to meet us.

Room was huge, shower, tv, wifi, balcony (not a great view), lockable storage etc

We expected beats & music into the night as it is a hostel but despite the great atmosphere below it wasn't invasive of the room.

I would highly recommend, the socially responsible element in relation to tour guides and Tuk Tuk drivers is also worth supporting.

Location wise it's only a 8 minute walk to Siem Reap centre, turn left at the door and straight over the bridge.

There is a reason why this hostel is no1 on hostelworld. It is a little more expensive than the other hostels in central siem reap but my god is it worth it! I can not explain enough how lovely the staff here (Somali in particular!). They go above and beyond to help you and even the cleaners who don't speak great english will greet you with a smile and try their hardest to respond to your requests. For a solo traveler this hostel was perfect because you literally just have to sit in the bar and before you know it everyone is talking to you. The only fault I can give this place is that the pool is by the bar so you will feel very exposed while swimming. But then that is not the hostel's fault but the architects! The cinema room is amazing and there is a pool table to add to pleasure. I made a friend at the border of Cambodia who came with me to get a room but they were actually fully booked for the rest of the week! As i said its no1 for a reason!

Room Tip: check out the cinema room!
