Great place for backpacking! Nice terrace, good happy hours, fair prices for the room and amazing staff. Special shout out to Ramet, a great bartender and receptionist who answered my stupid tourist quiestions and helped out.

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...

Top Banana is located very close to all the main attractions and restaurants. There are also many Tuk-Tuks available right at their doorstep to take you anywhere you want. We stayed in a 8 bed dorm right below the Top Banana bar so it got a bit noisy late in the night. The bunk beds are very solid and non...

Thank you for writing your review. Unfortunately there was an incident the other week where the man fell (after a few drinks) as he climbed into bed. He did split is chin but is ok, there was no real damage. The staff who dealt with him that night and morning added that he was a real nice guy and even...

The staff are super friendly, always there to help. The location is perfect, nearly everything is within walking distance- restaurants, bars, salons etc The bar is great for meeting people, and super cheap. There are a million tuk tuk drivers outside ready to take you anywhere you want to go. We stayed in a private twin room. It was basic...

The room was quite okay, if you take into account the price 16USD 2 beds, 4 people. No extras (soap champoo, etc.) which was completely fine. The only thing is that our room was directly under the Top Banana bar and the window to the street (live band), so it was terribly loud. I can sleep anywhere without problem but...

Thank you for writing a review and it seems you had a great time - sorry it was a little loud. We do have other large twin rooms like this at the other end of this large hostel so please if you come back and visit, do request one away from the bar. Have a safe and fun onward trip...

Very good hostel with a good location to get to the must see places in Phnom Penh and to go out at night. Friendly staff, good food, clean dorms and beds and a nice bar to easily meet other travellers and have a couple of beers.

The room was a good size and the guesthouse appears ok at first, but the tuk tuks and mopeds right outside your window beeping each other and revving their engines until 2am does not make for a good nights sleep. Also the bed has a plastic cover more akin to something you would find in an old people's home and...

Stayed in the private room. The room was basic and clean. Toilet was average. The staff was not very helpful as compared to my experience at other guesthouses in Cambodia. The bar was not very busy/ noisy the nights I stayed there -which was a plus for me.
