Stayed in one of the double rooms with my brother, was a regular hotel room with a pretty awesome shower. There were a few things I really liked about the place. The outdoor dining area/garden along with the pool table was a nice option for hanging out and beginning the day or ending the night. Also, the manager (I think)... More

We got pretty lucky when we checked in. Our party of three arrived in Cambodia late Sunday evening, and there were only 2 people booked for the room. We asked the manager, Mok (I think that's how you spell his name) if he could accommodate us, and he obliged to do so at the same rate the two of us... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. It cost us a total of $15 / night for a room with a bed for 2 persons. The good: - The location is a 5 minute walk from the center and the market. - It was clean. The bad: - They are very unorganized. They cannot check you in when the big boss... More

Hostel was not clean. The staff took advantage of us. He overcharged us for the tuk tuk transportation to the floating village and temples. He kept insisting that this was the best price and we did not need to look elsewhere... After paying him, we quickly found out that we were overcharged 15-20$ easily. We asked for a refund but...

I booked here for 2 nights for $30 and they said I have a free breakfast, when I checked in the morning, I have none! The place is dirty, no telephone, and the reception staff is impolite and got a bad service. The best part is, when I checked out and took a bus heading to Thailand, the bus stopped... More

I wouldn't say this place is terrible or dirty. More like, rough and older accommodation. I have stayed in worse places for a much higher price back in the States. At any rate, the staff are pretty much aloof, but helpful when directed. They showed me the room before I booked. They honored the price they originally quoted, upon check-out.... More

I am so shocked that there is a hostel that dirty!!!! Please, if you don't want to spoil your vacation, don't book here.Look for a fair priced hotel. This one is cheap but at least cleanliness should be number one priority. A lot of improvement can be done!!!!

You get what you pay for in this "hostel" lets just say it's a cheap, kinda trash hotel. The employers sleep in the lobby all the time. Day, night it doesn't matter, it doesn't give you a welcoming feeling, but what the heck, it's just a place to sleep when you are seeing Angkor Wat, and it does the job.... More
