A very good hostel. Very clean with very friendly staff. Only saw Sam So once but he seemed like a really great guy. Great value. I wish the staff knew a little more of the details about places to visit but maybe I just caught them at a bad time.

My notion of staying in a guesthouse/hostel was a lousy service, but when I read good reviews from Mr. Samso about his guesthouse I was so amazed how accomodating they are with all their guest. They even arrange our tuktuk driver and sights to see for our short stay in Siem Reap. Even on our late arrival, Mrs.So went by...

We booked at Sam So through Hostelworld.com, they provide free airport pick up (tuktuk) so I emailed my arrival time in the airport & they confirmed immediately. The rooms are ok for the price, wifi is fast. Location is also ok, 15min walk to Pub Street. What makes them special is they really provide a family-like service. When we arrived...

Upon arrival around 9:30pm local time in Siem Reap we were picked-up by Lai ( Sam So Guesthouse's official tuk-tuk driver) on time.

Stayed there for 3 nights, the room was good for its price. The owner and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Perfect :) They organised the airport pickup, arranged all the trips with tuk tuk, booked a private massage, all at very good prices.
