Great hostel in the centre of Siem Reap. Clean rooms, friendly staff and chilled bar area. Everyone is made to feel welcome and I couldn't have hoped for anywhere better to stay. The bar is always busy and it's the perfect base for solo backpackers to explore from.

Awesome place! Cool people, the most chilled out bar in town, and it even comes with a semi-indoor beach. And they've even got soft beds and hot showers! What else could you wish for? Good vibes all around, simply had an amazing time!

I was recommended this hostel by a fellow traveler. This place is fantastic. Great staff, beach bar, and pool. Not loud after midnight unlike other hostels. The food here is also amazing. Their Thai red curry is now my favorite. If I am ever back in Siem Reap I will stay here again.

This was the first and only place I have stayed in Siem Reap. The staff is amazing. Karim went out of his way to make sure I arrived safely from Thailand and even organized a tuktuk from where my bus dropped me off. The pool is amazing the drinks that flow are cold and the food is amazing. Best Amok... More

Although i did not fully enjoy my time at Downtown Siem Reap Hostel, i dont blame it on the hostel or the staff. The staff here are for the most part very friendly and very willing to help out whenever they can, although can sometimes show favouritism to the huge party goers. The rooms were clean but there were constant... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Clean rooms, secure property, reliable and trustworthy service- that is our guarantee. Downtown Siem Reap Hostel is a hostel with high standards, but with Backpacker and Flashpacker prices. Staffed by a mix of Western and Khmer staff, our success is driven by and primarily due only to the sheer dedication of the Khmer staff employed here. They speak excellent English, serve with a smile, and are here to make your stay as comfortable as possible. British owned and managed, and established in February 2011, Downtown Siem Reap Hostel has become one of the most popular hostels in Siem Reap, and now with a newly built swimming pool, bamboo gardens, and extra rooms, we are able to accommodate and serve 70 guests per night. Our kitchen is open from 7.00am serving a mixture of food from a cheap Backpacker Menu with all eats under $2.50, through Thai and Khmer food and Western favourites - something for all budgets. Our breakfasts have always been a big hit, with set-breakfasts including tea/coffee and juice from $2.50. Our accommodation includes 6 and 8 bed AC dorms, 4 person AC dorms with ensuite bathrooms, fan and AC ensuite twin and ensuite double rooms and a recently completed dorm boasting 2 ensuite bathrooms and floor to ceiling privacy glass walls. Please be aware that there will be a 10% Vat on your final bill. ... more   less
