Private room had poor aircon. I had to drag the mattress off the frame to be under the fan and A/C unit. The cafe blasts music at 7 am on a sunday for whatever reason. On the plus side? Beer is less than $2 (which is fair) and the staff make sure you catch the bus. Location is decent, 10-15...

Visited here for 2 nights when I first flew in to Phnom Penh. The checkin process went very smoothly and I even got upgraded from a dorm to a private room when there was an error in the system. The pool was lovely after a hot days sightseeing and the food and drinks at the bar was excellent and reasonably...

I stayed in a 5 bed female dorm and it was fine; room was a good size and all of the beds were single (not bunks). They have a great system where you sign up for a tuk tuk to the killing fields/S-21 so you end up easily meeting people (and splitting the cost!). Only downside of this place is...

Dear Moods24, Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that you had a good stay with us. Unfortunately, the bag snatching is becoming more of a problem - not only in Phnom Penh, but other popular holiday destinations. Everyone, please be more cautious and "be aware of your surroundings". Our advice would be to not walk alone...

The hostel itself is lovely probably one of the best I've stayed in Asia. I stayed in a 8 bed dorm it was very spacious there was a small balcony and the bathroom was amazing, especially the shower, everything was extremely clean and the beds were pretty comfy. There is a small pool but not a lot of sun beds...

So very pleasantly surprised by the standard of this hotel with hostel facilities. We were concerned that as an older traveller it would be too young and noisy, but it mixed and accommodated all age groups well and we found we were not at all disturbed. Great pool area and good food. We would definitely return here. Thank you for...

Really enjoyed this stay and wish I had booked it earlier. Definitely would recommend it, from the decor, to the pool, bed.....everything quite perfect. The only thing I would change a bit is probably the menu but thats a matter of choice as staff and customers seamed quite happy with what was being offered

This hostel has comfortable and secure dorm rooms. There is a comfortable common area to hang out in near reception. The pool is a big plus although it is not very clean - I wouldn't put my head in the water. Downsides are that the wifi didn't work in the rooms, the breakfast is not good value for money (beware...

Stayed in a female dorm, well cleaned, and with a balcony. Breakfast is not included but available for extra. A bit pricey but the unlimited drinks are nice. The hotel restaurant have a small selection of Khmer and Western dish, for a good price. The staff is really nice and helpful.

I stayed here for 4 nights on my own whilst doing sight seeing in Phnom Penh. I stayed in a single bed room which was simple but clean enough for a place to rest. The reason I booked this hotel was mainly for the swimming pool. It was a nice getaway from all of the sights and a good place...

Rosmedubey, 6 Mar 2017 | Read review
“I have stayed in just about every room type here. This year we had a ground floor one facing the pool (room 16) and it was great-convenient to avoid stairs, have a quick dip in the pool or a beer in the restaurant. Frankly I have never had a bad room there. They now have dorm rooms and I have never stayed there, but at the price offered ($5-$10+/-), they sound like a deal to me, especially having a restaurant and pool there-if you like dorms of course! Not my cup of tea, but a good price in a first class hotel!”
