Place was easy to find. Room was comfortable. Service was OK. Good place to meet other travelers and enjoy a drink. They made arrangements to hook people up for trips. Room facilities were clean and amenities as promised. Will stay again.

Had an excellent time at banana hostel. Staff are really good and friendly especially Neat who was always great fun behind the bar. Excellent location and clean rooms with a very reasonable price. Highly recommend this place.

The bed was awesome, far the best in any hostel or guesthouse I visited. The lockers where robust and reliable, the shower had nice pressure and warm water with clean environment. Overall the bedroom and toilet was awesome. I suggest you stay on 2nd floor. Sockets for charging your electronics are located on every bed and all around the bar...

I stayed in a private room that was spacious. It was surprisingly peaceful as well given the proximity to the hostel bar & the main road. Nice hostel & bar with a really lovely team. Felt very welcome there. Special mention to the manager Neat who did a great job

Probably the most clean hostel I've stayed in whilst travelling around South East Asia. The room was spacious and clean with good functioning air conditioning and fan all for a very reasonable price. The only negative about the room was the shower water was freezing. The staff were friendly and helped me post my postcard. The bar was lively with...

Had a great stay here, good vibe on the roof top bar. Excellent location and the staff were very friendly, and were always up for a laugh especially Neat, she was always smiling. Neat also took me out to the markets making sure the guests saw a lot in Phnom Penh. Also managed to sort out visas and travel here...

I have been to the banana rooftop bar on a number of occasions over the past couple of years. It is truly a great place in a great location. The staff, especially Ramet, is over the top good. They are all very friendly and help to make you feel comfortable and contribute to the great experience. Definitely will return next...

Myself and my friend stayed here 3 nights! We were able to book into a female only dorm. The rate (considering what you get for your $), is excellent value for money! We had a 6 bed dorm with 2 showers/toilets, big beds, outlets at every bed and a personal light at each bed. There are nice big lockers underneath...
