The Siem Reap Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 6, 2010

I've to admit, I'm quite skeptical when it comes to booking hostels in South East Asia, but the quality of this place really blew my mind!

The pick-up service was friendly (cold beer awaits!), the room was amazingly clean, bed was super comfortable, bathroom was really hygienic, staff were really friendly, pool was refreshing, breakfast was delicious.. I don't think I can complain much about this place! Maybe one thing, the computer room should have a/c installed, or at least a fan, so that it's not too stuffy. But, the other good parts of the hostel kinda shadowed that one weakness.

All I could say is: Awesome stay! Don't miss it if you're looking for an affordable stay in Siem Reap!
The only thing that I was sorry about was that I couldn't stay longer!

The Siem Reap Hostel was the best hostel I stayed at during my 3 weeks in Southeast Asia. The staff was extremely friendly, the amenities were fantastic, and the value was the best. Highly recommend!

Complete with friendly staff, pool, bar, pool table and chill out rooms in a handy location only 10min easy walk to "Pub Street" and markets, The Siem Reap Hostel is a great place to base yourself for as long as you want. Great value for money - Highly recommended!

An enjoyable oasis with everything you need and central to any tourist things you may wish to do. They work a lot in the community so if you are interested you can get involved.
The rooms and facilities were as good as many major hotels and the place is clean, the free internet means you can catch up with family and friends so they know how things are going and the pool was a delight after a long day and the staff most helpful.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two months while working at a school nearby. I really can't fault this hostel. The pool was a welcome relief from the hot days and the bar area a great place to socialise. The location really close to town and nearby markets.

This hostel is a just 5 minutes from the Old Market. Lots of great food around the area. Super convenient. Friendly staffs such as Chanrey. Their tuk tuk drivers are trustworthy but slightly expensive for a day trip to the temples about USD15.00 . Rooms and ensuite toilet were clean everyday and they even make your bed. Angkor Draft Beer was 50 cents during happy hour!! One downfall would be the mosquitos but I can't blame them. OH I forgot they even have a Swimming pool!

It has everything that you would want from a hostel (though, it felt more like a hotel) - great rooms, common area, bar and restaurant, fast internet, pool, friendly staff, activities, everything.
We had a private room for three. The rooms were huge, the bathroom had all that you needed (though, try not to have three people shower in a row, it clogs up the drain), it was cleaned every day, the tv had a million channels. The staff were the friendliest (just maybe don't get them to send you your postcards, as not one of my 12 recipients got theirs) and the tuktuk drivers were so helpful. We had Ter drive us everywhere for days, and he was so friendlly, gave us advice and never let us get bugged by sellers or anything.
The hostel itself is about a five minute walk from the centre (Pub Street for resturants and bars, the central market right nearby, the night market about ten minutes away), and a tuktuk ride would cost about US$1.
The only thing that it lacked was the awesome backpacker atmosphere, but that may definitely be due to it being low season (must say, most of Cambodia was quiet at that time of year).
However, would defintely stay there again! The best hostel I've been in.
