“Loved this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

We had a really good time at Here be dragons, stayed there for three nights. Really nice owners, helped us arrange bus and circus tickets and recommended a good cooking school. We also had fun at the pub quiz night and met some nice fellow travelers here. Yes, the rooms are basic and the bed is quite hard, but the downstairs area and food is great. Stay here in Battambang.

Stayed for 2 nights and everything was fine. Two very nice owners who were always very helpful.

The court yard to the front of the hostel is one of the best you'll find. Room and bathroom in private room were both very clean.

Thanks for a good stay.

We really loved it there, felt like home from the minute we stepped in. There are hammocks and a rooftop terrace and excellent food (also the best fruit shakes). The people who run it are great, besides being nice and fun people and all, they'll organize rides and tickets for you if you want but won't bother you about it if you don't.

A group of us went out to this bar on many occasions on pub quiz night, BBQ night and when we just wanted to chill out. The atmosphere is great and the staff are always friendly and chatty. Great place to hang out!

We were supposed to stay just 1 or 2 days, ended up staying a week. It's a great place, perfect atmosphere and the owners are the nicest people. If you like to relax, enjoy good food and don't mind to have the time of your life, go there now!

Absolutely loved this place. We wound up staying longer than expected.

Is just a short walk into town, but most of the sights are out of town.

Good food - actually amazing food all reasonably priced. Staff are so helpful and really do make you feel very welcome.

We stayed in a private room which was clean and secure.

Only recommendation is to maybe shop around with tuk tuk's we found getting one off the street cheaper than the one that the hostel recommends!

Altogether though such a wonderful place with lovely people

Great place to stay, nice atmosphere, good food (morning milkshakes, sandwiches, pancakes excellent). Lovely staff always up for a nice conversation and even drinking games !! The dorm is really clean and everything well organized. Very close to the center, less than 10 minutes walk. The guesthouse is situated in a very peaceful environment with a park across the road.
