Stayed one night in a $2 room with a fan after coming from Koh Rung Island, just needed somewhere to leave my stuff and nap before the bus back to Phnom Penh in the morning.
Made my bed with sheets, which was basically a gym mat on a 2 level wooden bed frame with about 20 other gym mats and some lockers.
You can hear the partying noise from the room, but it was actually quite comfortable as there were only about 3 others sleeping in the dorm during the night and the background noise was drowned out by the fan.
I don't even know what the bathrooms looked like as I didn't use them, and I wasn't game enough to use them after seeing all the feral travellers getting wasted at the bar and acting disgraceful. Checked out in the morning and got out of there, never intending to go back.
If you need a place to crash for one night, its perfectly cheap, but don't expect anything more.
