  • I really didn't like this place. I chose it because it has a really high rating but I don't know why that is. For an extra dollar, you can stay in a really nice room in a newer hostel in Phnom Penh. The rooms were empty, just a few mattresses on the floor. Wouldn't recommend it.

  • Very simple. The dorms are futon-like mattresses laid on the floor, but they're comfortable. Each bed has it's own fan and mosquito net which keeps you cool at night - better than a/c. Cold, but clean shower. The only social area is a few tables on the sidewalk with a fridge of cheap beer for sale, but it always had a great atmosphere and was easy to meet people. The owner is friendly and helpful. There is always a security guard outside at night to watch the place and let you in. Overall it was great for

  • I didn't feel very welcomed or was met with a blank stare when I asked questions about the area. The service was very standard and the room was below my expectations. The location is a bit of a walk from the busy central area of the river so I felt a bit vulnerable walking on my own at night to the hostel. Overall, the hostel was a disappointment.
