Reviewed 5 July 2016

Did not stay at this accommodation but came here one night for dinner and a few drinks. The bar area is super cool and really well thought out! Very comfortable indeed, including swinging chairs! Good choices on the menu (especially the beef lok lak) and good service from bar staff! Recommended!

I normally forget to review places, and I am generally a fair judge and hate to complain, but this place really does not meet my expectations at all. The rooms are very dingey and dark. Anyway, we were shown to our room to be confronted with a fan that didn't work-we swapped it for another two that didn't either, to...

I’m sorry you did not enjoy your time staying in my home. Where to start in replying to your review? It just sounds like nothing would have pleased you as you complained about nearly everything! The fan is completely understandable that it did not work efficiently for your stay and I am very sorry about this. It has now been...

The guest house is cool and all made of wood. We had a clean private room. The bathroom wouldn't say no to some repairs. The staff is nice. Food is okay. Ideal for backpackers. It was very relaxing. It's not directly on the beach but it is not an issue in Otres.

We spent a lot of time just chilling at the hostel because they had pretty much everything you need. More than that, they had a wicked atmosphere and really kind, helpful staff. The only hindrance was the rooms. It got really humid in the night and we only had one fan in the room. Also, during one of the storms,...

Thank you for your review. Cambodia saw a national all-time record high of 42.6°C set in Preah Vihear province on April 15. So when we do get rain the humidity this year has increased. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels and hope to see you next time you are on Otres beach.

A great hostel with a chill vibe. Kind staff who provided lots of info and tips of the surrounding area, and who were happy to make sure you were comfortable! Good bar/food + not too loud after hours, no AC but a fan in every bungalow. A good base for trips to the islands!
