No one picked me up at the airport, even though I sent a reminder email the day prior, then the young man on duty claimed that he had sent a driver, although I arrived on time and waited 45 minutes, so I felt as though he wasn't telling the truth. The next morning the owner apologized, offered a free return ride, and took us to a school, but the house could use some maintenance (screens repaired so mosquitoes don't get in; cleaner floors). Breakfast was good: an omelet, fruit & French bread.
This guesthouse is totally forgettable. It serves the purpose of a place to sleep, but you won't get anything else. Breakfast was included but it will not sustain you until lunch. Staff was friendly but not super helpful. Stay somewhere else for a bit of atmospherez
We stayed here for two nights, had originally booked 4. This 'hostel' was possibly the worst we've stayed at in 4 months travelling. There were no walls in the dorm, the toilets were god awful and there were Mosquitos all over the room. We left and stayed in a different hostel, don't stay here!!!!
We really enjoyed our stay at bun kao, the family who run it are very friendly and always helpful. Location is very good too away from the main pub district a bit quieter and good restaurants around, nice walk into old market area too along the river.

Great to have airport pick up and were happy to help with my specific requests for the tour. Bed comfy and lovely crusty baguette for breakfast. In a quiet area but with lots of hostels and restaurants nearby.
The desk staff were very nice. We were able to pay for a half day when our plane left in the evening which was nice. Don't order food unless you have a long time to wait. That goes for everywhere we went in Siem Reap.
If you would like to stay here don't stay in a mixed dorm Because it is dirty like there is dust on the bed And dead Mosquitos after one night sleep and no bin Plus rats and ants.
Second stay here, staff are lovely and helpful! Rooms are simple but good.
Very happy with the place. The staff were extremely nice and helpful when booking tuk-tuks or tours. The shower was never hot but it wasn't cold either. Also maybe the shower drain could do with some unclogging in room 5. But they're really minor complaints - the place was well worth a visit.
We spent 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The staff is super sweet and the location is okay. Nice restaurants around the corner en always tuktuks nearby. Shower was nice and clean, with constant hot water. Would definetely recommend it to anyone!
We paid $5 per person for dorm beds. The The room had an attached bathroom with hot shower and toilet which is basic and clean which does the job. The staff are really nice; they taught khmer. The GH was pretty much dead so we didn't meet anyone there. They put little effort into a communal area compared to the surrounding GHs which were thriving with travellers. However we decided to use the Bun Kao s as it was cheaper than the surrounding GHs yet use their communal areas which was fine.
The road leading up to the guesthouse is very bumpy and some tuk tiks might want to leave you at the end of the road or charge you extra, but other than that this is a fantastic place to stay. Staff are really friendly and breakfast is great too. Top notch for a budget stay.

Mr Bun Kao and the staff are amazing! We arrived late and night and the staff were there to welcome us with open arms. The hostel is located down a little dirt road which makes for a bumpy but enjoyable tuk tuk ride. Everywhere in the city was accessible by tuktuk which took about 5-10 minutes. Rooms were clean and tidy and breakfast was included with the room which was great. I would definitely stay here again!
Very nice guest house, run by a lovely family. The location is much better than I expected from the hostelworld map, surrounded by restaurants and other guest houses. They arranged my boat ticket to phnom penh and I overslept for the pick up time but they made sure I could get on the van and even made a breakfast-to-go for me and gave me some water as you can't get anything on the boat. At 6 a.m.!! Price, wifi, facilties are good. There was a bath which was useless cause there was no plug.
Run by a lovely local family who can't do enough for you!
