This hostel is awesome for a party but also easy to get a good nights sleep if you need one. 5 minute walk to the centre of Siem Reap. The staff were amazing and organised the best pub crawl I've ever been on. Starting with a Cambodian carnival, which was the most fun and very exclusive to this pub crawl. After that there were 3 Cambodian bars and finished on pub street. $5, 7 free drinks, best night you'll have in Siem Reap

Just clean everything!


Best hostel i've stayed in. We extended our stay from 4 to 8 days! The atmosphere is great, staff friendly, and the activities organised in the evening allow you to meet loads of people. Absolutely loved it! You should definitely stay here!


Little lucky Luke is a handsome friendly barkeeper. Good company but don't ask him for a drink with more than 3 ingredients. Rooms are lovely!!! But food is sooooo overpriced!!! So go into the city for value for money. Enjoyed my time here and would def recommend it. LOVE THE SWIMMINGPOOL

Loved the atmosphere here, felt like a big family. The kitchen makes affordable food l day long, and they play movies on the big screen! Wifi good throughout. The only difficult thing was that someone puked in a toilet, clogged it, and it wasn't cleaned the four days I was there.


We enjoyed our stay here, the only annoying thing was that we booked an aircon room for the first 2 nights which didn't actually work too well, we then tried to book this room for a third night and they told us it was fully booked so moved us to a more expensive fan room, we found out the morning of being moved that our friends the next day had booked places in our old room, so I was pretty annoyed they told us otherwise. Also the whole place flooded and the water stopped working


I really liked the pool here. There is a tuk tuk driver working for the hostel so its easy to catch a ride to the temples. Small bar near the pool and you can also order food here. Staff is also very friendly.


the pool / bar area was very chill and a good place to meet other travellers. Rooms were fairly clean but they charge $5 extra for AC per night.


Awesome little pool and bar chill out area. Reception will arrange an early morning tuk tuk if wanting to see the sunrise at Siem Reap with a trusted driver. Food pretty tasty from the kitchen too. Would definitely recommend staying here.


They made me pay for someone else's trip. I had to, they kept my passport.. Upon check-in, you have to hand them your passport. Rather than using cash payments troughout your stay for drinks, overnight sleeps and food, they employ the tab-method. Everything goes on your tab. They mess up the billing and then blame it on you not checking the tab earlier than check-out. Incredible. Staff was very uncoöperative in the matter too. Never again. Don't go to Downtown Siem Reap.


Nice swimming poll, nice staff, rooms with ac.


Great hostel, good location and big, clean bedrooms. Pool is a bonus and great for meeting poeple at the bar!


Wonderful place. Make sure you book the dorms with ensuite bathroom. They aren't only ensuite, they are miles away better than the other ones. Wooden bunks with lockers underneath, cleaner and much much MUCH nicer. My review is based on those rooms NOT the cheaper rooms (for only a dollar or two difference you get much better value for your money) my only complain though is that i was charged the wrong price, twice, given the wrong room, twice, and there wasn't much they would do about it..


great place to stay..nice swimming pool, bar..and nice room with beds..I hired a cycle and easy to navigate around to Angkor or nearby villages..shops, restaurants nearby..nice quite neighbourhood..lovely staff


1) This hostel will take your passport at the front desk. This is creepy and weird, pay them upfront and keep your passport to yourself. 2) This hostel is filthy. The rooms are dirty, the sheets re dirty, the bathrooms are dirty, everything is dirty. If you expect cleanliness during your stay, do not stay here. My sheets had stains from previous users, there was dirt and mud all over the bathrooms, etc. 3) The staff don't give a xxx. 4) No hot water, A/C doesn't work, even after 'fixing.'


Well worth paying the extra 2 dollars for the better dorms, my friend stayed in the 6 dollar one and it was no where near as good. good atmosphere, good people, good food, good location.


Really nice hostel and an excellent atmosphere!!! It could be a little bit cleaner


Nothing to complain! Great staff, great place, great people!! Highly recommend to stay there!

Awesome pool, good food and drink available. Stayed in a four bed dorm. Big lockers with power points in the lockers. Reading light by the bed and nice big beds. Air con remote was in the room so had full control. Spacious ensuite bathroom, shower wasn't great and always warm but not a huge deal! Definitively stay there again!


The hostel is very well located and the staff friendly. With a swimming pool and a pool table it has excellent possibilities to enjoy your time at the hostel. The atmosphere was a typical party atmosphere, which is nice if you wish to go on a party holiday, but is not the right thing if you look for an accommodation to share experiences made while traveling. There was also music playing till the middle of the night. If you want to party, this hostel is perfect, if not, maybe take a different one
