Staff were amazing, especially the young couple running it. Very friendly and hospitable. Just changed management so ignore previous managerial comments from three weeks ago and older (if I'm right). BBQ night which was really yummy, they have a pool but locker is at reception. 6 bed dorm was good but only one plug point in the room, but you are in Cambodia! Beds a little squeaky too but overall I'd definitely recommend this place. Good vibe, great for meeting people and excellent location


Very friendly staff!! The room I initially went to was dirty, so the host upgraded my room and I was very satisfied. The room was painted green but appeared to be a rush job, butt the bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean.


after my sister a huge grasshopper in the room we left the place. helpful staff but not very clean.


No complaints really. Saw one bug. Clean beds, decent bathroom. Helpful English speaking staff and really close to the Night Market and Pub Street. Really cheap too. Don't be deterred by depositing your passport when you check in.


Free pick-up service from the busstation! Very nice rooms and also the pool area is lovely! We enjoied our stay very much!!

This hostel was awesome although we came in the slow season not many travellers there. The only issue was the owner he is very passive aggressive, only nice to you if it's to his benefit.


Great atmosphere and great staff. Great place to hang out with a pool, bar and close to the old market. Meet lots of great people here. Ashton


Had a fantastic stay here! Really social place a 5 min walk away from the old market/pub street area away. Met loads of fellow travelers. The pool area is great! Really good food too. Big thanks to Georgia and Mark who really looked after us during our stay. Would definitely recommend! Thanks!


Bar staff great reception staff not good and often try to rip you off, good hostel tainted slightly and laundry is too expensive

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for your comments, but just need to state that we take 1$ a kg for laundry, washed, dried and ironed, and 2$ for express machine wash- it's done as a service with no profit to the hostel at all, and is impossible to do cheaper, otherwise it would be done at a loss.


Very rude staff. They jeep all The passports. Their reason is literally "in case you get very drink they keep your passport safe" and also if there is a police inspection they need it useless to give them a copy) buttt instead you can keep your passport leaving 50$ deposit... What happes then with The police? Party every night.good luck if you try to get some rest... No sleep. People fuc*** under The stairs... And people drinking and eating from inside The swimming pool.


Just one plug for a 6 bed dorm Weak wifi Dirty toilets Useless staff

The staff was friendly but everything rather disorganised. Its a place for a just-entered-their-20s party crowd, there are other hostel with a better vibe around town!


Good for the party people, bad for those who want to sleep without being disturbed by music at night...


If you are part of the young English crowd, you will feel very welcome and at home. If you are desperate for an STD, get yourself along. The English owner seems quite flippant and rude and unfortunately speaks to his native staff like they are idiots. I think he would do well to remember that English is not their first language and they may not have had as good an education as others. A towel in the room and a bar of soap wouldn't be too much to ask, but it was. Improvement needed i'm afraid.

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!


A 7ish min walk from Pub Street, and with a large clean swimming pool, well stocked poolside bar, outdoor seating, full comfort food menu (bit pricey, but good)Inside was dark and dingy, the rooms small and cramped, and swelteringly hot, despite the ac being on. The beds were questionably clean, and the bathroom and tiny, drippy, damp hole in the corner of the room. Cold water, no pressure, rusty taps, the works. The crowd are generally young loud party people


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!
