Very cheap so can't complain, basic stay if that's what you are after.


Chhaya Hotel is simple but good! You really get what you pay for, in this case somewhere to stay. I stayed in a dorm witch was very small and without saffety lockers. The staff was really friendly and helpfull so if you just want it simple for 1 night or 2 it's fine. If you want to have a nice atmosphere and meet people there is better places!


Get what you pay for, great place. Very basic but clean. Best location.

I was very impressed, cheap and cheerfull. If the showers had hot water I would have given it 100% for everying but at that price I really can't complain.


Basic hotel at cheap price. Hot showers and very quiet. The rooms are comfy and clean. Offers a great afternoon tour which I would recommend as guide speaks perfect English and is very informative.


Though the rooms were available at lower floor in the same price range, Mr. Lee wanted extra money nfor it and put me pn the top most 4th. floor. I told him that I had asthma and nedeed lower floor. No elevator in the guest house. also Mr. Lee sold us Bus ticket on an Express Bus company but put us on a slow / stopping at any place to pick passengers ( at one time there were pasengers sitting on the floor) Mr. Lee abuses hie English knowledg to run a side business , as mentioned. Also WiFI on


10 minutes after we arrived we could join a tuktuk tour around Battambang, really nice!


Nice hotel, showerscould be cleaned a bit more during the day. Bun the tUK Tuk driver is a nice addition to the hotel allowing for a well guided tor around the attractions of battambang. He knows the information and his English is good.


The hotel cancelled our booking "because we were late due to the bus" (but was said by email we were coming from Sihanoukville, I guess they are aware about the “speed” of the Cambodian bus ;op). Anyway the nice tuk tuk driver arranged that we could stay in their Chhaya appartment, which was really really nice (and same price). The next day we got our room, I don't know about the others, but that was not the best one we had in Cambodia.... Not very clean, no towel, no soap. Had to ask for it.


Great for backpackers on a budget.


Cheap and that's it. Expect nothing sophisticated. Though in all good value for 2 dollars for a bed


The room was clean and the wifi awesome. The hotel is near by the pubstreet. The guy at the reception in the evening was really helpful and friendly!!! One mistake happend. We bought two bus tickets and they booked just one seat. Luckly we could catch an other bus which had two seats left and the hotel paid for the extra cost.


Good location. Cheap hostel. You get what you pay for. The hostel owner is quiet rude. Also lots of bugs in the bed ants and other things.


I completely recommend it!


For the price you can't really complain. But overall not the best and not the worst.


No complaints!!


Reasonable enough for rice dollars a night, but the place is showing it's age.
