“Absolutely great hostel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

We stayed there five nights. It was an absolutely great stay! For only 10$ we (2 people) had a double room with attached bathroom. The room was clean, had wooden walls, a comfortable bed with mosquito net, a small desk and a shelf. So we had enough space to unpack our backpacks and put everything at a place. The hostel is very lovely, has various tables inside and outside to relax, meet other people and enjoy the delicious food they serve. The people (Dirk, his wife and all the others) were very friendly and nice. There's also a pool table to use for free. It is a real oasis in the laidback city! It is the place to stay and I recommend it to everybody!

This little guesthouse is well worth the $4 they charge a night. A friend and I stayed in the girls dorm and a few male friends stayed in the larger dorm. Super clean. Staff friendly. Really cool chilled vibe. Has good bar/pool/seating area where you can sit&chat. Rooms can get odd as only a fan however it was the warmest time of the year and we still managed to sleep. A definite must stay if I battambang.

We arrived in Battambang late at night after a full day riding a bike on dirt tracks.
Looking for a guest house, we found light in the street 1.5.
A clear spot was welcoming us : Ganesha Guest House.

The guest house offers rooms, with inside bathroom, or dorms.

We took a room for 8 USD/night (without breakfast)
The rooms are quite small, but very clean and with HUGE windows.
So we felt very well there.
Equiped with a mosquito net, a fan, a small table, shelves and a chair.

There are common areas to share your traveller's tips at every floor. (table+chairs)
There is a pool at the ground floor.

The bad point for rooms : the top part of the wall isn't closed to the corridor.
We think that noise of room next door will be heard from your bed...
We didn't experienced it : there weren't other guests.

We also liked the service :
Dirk and the team are very helpful and can sort out things with you (like finding your broken clutch lever in Battambang...)

I highly recommend this quiet guesthouse run by Derrick and his wife. They made our stay in Battambang easy and enjoyable. They booked our bus and circus tickets with no added commission, drove us to the aforementioned places on their tuktuk for free, and treated us like we were family. They are clearly experienced in the hospitality industry and know how to ensure your stay in Battambang is the best it can be. If you are in Battambang, make sure you stay at Ganesha Guesthouse!

Room Tip: Rooms don't have AC but each bed has a personal fan and they let us bring up an extra fan from d...
