This guesthouse is very clean, nice, and we get a double room with hot water, tv, fan, towels, water, soap, etc for 6$.
The stuff is nice as long as you don't expect anything else from them than a good morning in the morning, and a good night later.
We rented a motorbike through the guesthouse. They ask you to keep your passport until you returned it (that's common in asia).
The thing is that when we rented it, we wanted to check any existing damage on the bike, but they just say: no, no, no, don't worry, no, no, no. And they didn't let us do this checking with them.
So when we return the motorbike, the real owner (first surprise: it didn't belong to the guesthouse), saying that we broke the fender. It was, actually, broken, but for sure we didn't do it. Maybe someone passing by when we were parked? We don't know. But the thing is that we complained to the recepction, 'cause they didn't agree to list the existing damages, so, how could we know that it was not broken when we take it? We asked them to give us back our passport, as we didn't do anything, and they didn't do things propertly when we rented it.
So... second surprise!: they couldn't give us our passport, 'cause they give it to the motorbike owner!
So when you rent your motorbike in there, and you trust them to keep your passport, they just give it to a complete stranger!
Of course, the nice owner asked us to pay 16$ to replace the piece. He even offered us a discount if we changed it at his garage (thanks). He said it was the best price you can get.
We finally agree to change the piece ourselves. We went to the oficial suzuki garage, and being tourist it costed, in total, 5'5$ (so probably for a cambodian is like 3$ or less... it's a piece of plastic).
And while all this was happening, the guesthouse stuff was just agreeing with the owner, saying "I don't know", and shrugging.
So if you are not in a hurry, just walk around the city, and rent your motorbike at some other place.
By the way, this nice owner has a shop with a big yellow 1 (Maybe called top one? I don't remember). All the motorbikes has a stiker on the fender with the yellow one. Just in case you want to avoid some problems ;)
