  • We stayed in a private double bed room which was very clean, with large own bath room. Staffs were very friendly and helpful, the price was very reasonable. Recommended hostel in Phnom Penh for sure.

  • the hostel is in good district, but it's better to rent a bike (there are no bike for rent in hostel). there are 2 buildings, one is with restaurant, reception is in another one, no common room! but in general we liked the hostel. when we stayed there, it was very clean. also they provide a free bottle of beer every evening.

  • The staff are very friendly and helpful. We arrived there at midnight and they served us very patiently. It is a party hostel and arrange some activities for guests. I think it is good hostel and i will stay there next time.

  • Really cool hostel. Cool atmosphere. The beds are clean and comfortable. The restaurant has a huge selection and the food is excellent, although a bit on the expensive side. Also felt very safe there. The only negative aspect is that the lockers are rather flimsy and the rooftop bar closes at 11.30pm. But would highly recommend this place.

  • Staff were extremely helpful. Great atmosphere. Great food. Great party area on the roof which was well away from the sleeping areas.

  • Average hostel, bathroom inside the room, the ac was too high but wasn't noisy. The staff is in the mood: "we are just chillin here, not working", so they can be annoying and they don't try the best to give you good explanations. everything extra costs money (towels, locker, map...). best thing is that it is a good place to meet people.
