Hostel was pretty decent but very far out of centre


Great hostel, a little way out from the 'main' areas but not too expensive in tuk tuks to get around! The pool is great too if you just want to relax after koh rong!


Bad location. It's good if u r just waiting oe day for the ferry to Koh Rong.


Fantastic stay! We loved the pool and bar area it was very quirky and relaxed. Shame its a bit out the way of the action but only a short tuk tuk away. All staff are very friendly and helpful.


Really enjoyed staying at this hostel. We had a private room which was great value for money. The only thing to note is that it is actually quite far away from the centre of Sihanoukville and there's not that much going on near to the hostel.


A place for stoners, boring


Robbo is the best bartender ever, even though he's also BALONIES! We know you miss us and probably cry every time you have a White Russian. Stuey is a top bloke! Ps Thomas you go alright too. We'd come back to Sihanoukville just to party with you lot again! So much fun. xox Ciara and Romina.


Good place to escape the party madness of the town, yet still accessible via tuktuk or motorcycle. Conveniently close to the bus station (~1 km walk) and has several bars, restaurants, marts, and other places for essentials nearby. Only downfall is the bass (EDM) that reached my room in the morning and at night.


Generally a good place to be. Relatively clean, showers a bit aged, but you can't get everything, staff at variable, some are really pleasant and helpful. Overall a good place to be


Heaven indeed! Love that the rooms are spacious. Hostel is located near lots of local restaurants, about 10minutes walk to Victory Beach. Staff are really nice and helpful!


nice place, big rooms with wardrobe and tv but no lockers. the food in the cafe wasn't great.


mabey a few fans or something in the area where clothes are hung to dry? 2days and our clothes came back damp and musty smelling. But really enjoyed our stay! Keep it up 😊


The nicest hostel i'v ever seen for such a low price. Awesome place with a great social area. It's a bit farther away from most places but I still had a great time. Being farther away just made everyone become good friends in the social area before we went out 😀


Great guesthouse with a great common area! Everything was pretty new and very clean! The stuff really helpful and friendly :)

I enjoyed my time at this hostel. We went at low season so it was quite quiet and there weren't many other travellers, however the staff were really friendly and helpful. They arranged our boat and pick up to Koh Rong and gave us advice on renting mopeds and where to go.


This hostel had a really good bar/chill out area and a nice pool. The staff were very friendly. I wouldn't stay here again however as the dorm stank of damp and so did my clothes after staying one night. The dorm isn't locked so the door is just left open which I didn't like. It is also far from the beaches which is a drawback.


Nice staff, average facilities. It's away from the downtown area, which was good for me, but not for everyone.
