Great hostel in a perfect location! All the staff were great and really welcoming, they ran awesome events/specials each night with cheap food and drinks. Only downside was the bunk beds felt a little unstable and the aircon water leaked onto the floor and all through my bag but apart from that I would recommend this hostel to everyone!!


Staff helpful, oarty hostel, water runs out in shower tho for some reason. Lockers, clean.


Great hostel a little bit away from pub streets. Western English-speaking workers make it easy to communicate. They organise nightly events which help the travellers meet each other, and the pool and bar are a great set up. Whether you have a good social time depends on the other people staying there, which obviously isn't up to the hostel. They'll also try to sell you tours/book stuff etc but be wary that if you book through them it'll be more expensive than thru company. Good food too


Hostel had a great pool area and very sociable vibe. Our room smelt of damp, but communal facilities were nice and clean.


The bar and the pool is good, but there are hidden fees such as staying in the pool area costs money after check out and nobody told us. Staff was new and uneducated on the job. Loads of aussies and British. Showers are too small.


Really well located hostel just over the river with a social feel. Mark the owner was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with sorting more or less everything. Tuktuks can be booked through the hostel so you're guaranteed a good service, I'd recommend the floating village tour as well as Angkor temples. All in all an enjoyable stay!


Had such a fantastic time here we ended up coming back and staying again! The hostel organised events each night and whilst we were there there was an amazing $5 BBQ and free keg which I would 100% recommend. The hostel was clean and located within easy walking distance to pub street


This was the worst hostel I've stayed at. The power (A/C) and water would shut off everyday that I stayed; even once while I was in the middle of taking a shower. The bathrooms were dirty and old. The bunk beds were old and creaky. The staff was nice and friendly; but the other travelers generally kept to their own nationalities (Aussies and Euros) and didn't mix with other people. This is definitely a party backpackers hostel that is more for young Aussies and Euros than older travelers.


Good atmosphere. Nice pool.


The hostel in itself is ok Depending on your standards. Big dorm rooms, not too clean, 2 x toilets / bathroom for 14 people which were not really that clean. 5 $ a night is not the worst though so if you just wanna sleep thats alright. However be careful with the services they offer, the Tuk-Tuks they have a way more expensive then when you go on the street and the guys luring directly in front of the hostel work for the hostel and charge more than others. Better walk a few meters and negotiate


A fantastic hostel. Only stayed here for one night but left wishing we'd booked for more! Social events are.organised each night, there's a bar and restaurant on site which although more expensive than others in the surrounding area is worth it if you don't want to walk anywhere! Facilities were clean and the dorm room well air conditioned and with fantastic hot showers. Great social hostel but dorm room was well located so when going to bedo couldn't hear the noise from the pool below


All the other guests I talked to at the hostel were SUPER stoked about the hostel. The social vibe was definitely there, and lots of common space to meet and hang out by the pool and a group that usually heads out together to pub street. I was turned off by the "charge for everything" attitude by the staff. There didn't seem to be a willingness to offer advice or services for which they couldn't charge. As noted by other reviewers there were things charged to my tab that weren't correct.


Amazing hostel with the best atmosphere of anywhere I stayed on my holiday. Loved the tab system for paying as well and it was much less expensive than I was expecting.

Stayed here over new year. Bar area is great, drinks priced and right beside the pool. Staff were very friendly and really made sure you had a good time, big shout ot to Doyle for helping with an unexpected problem. Definately try some beer pong in the pool. Private room was exactly what we needed. Really close to Siem Reaps attractions. The tuktuk drivers were also super relaxed and helpful. Definately recommend for a party and hang out.


Good hostel, with a nice mix between party and chill. Good food in the hostel, not too far from main things. All the staff are very nice, except from Ben in the bar, which was not and makes a stain on the staff hospitality.


Great place to stay with a great vibe and the lovely swimming pool makes that you have an excellent time there. Plus the bar over the sand makes you feel that you are ok the beach, good drinks, breakfasts and meals that you can order. Location is very good, just 10 minutes walk from Pub Street, only downside the bathrooms that could be improved. Other than that is a great hostel that I'm sure I'll stay again if I come back to siem reap. Cheers!


By far the best hostel I've been in on my travels. The vibes amazing. Nice and sociable. The bar shuts down at 11. And everyone who wants to go out goes out together. So it's quit for those wanting a early night. Mark the owner is the man! And Brooke is a absolute doll! All the staff is amazing. Your missing out if you don't stay here well in Siem Reap!


I had such a good time here!! Came by myself but ended up with a big group of friends. Ended up staying 8 nights. The social area by the pool is great and most the staff is friendly. They arrange tuk tuks for the temples, pretty handy! Also, the beds are huge and get cleaned every day. The showers didn't always work and the aircon turns off during the day, but I was too busy having fun to worry about that. Will stay there again for sure!!


Loved this place! Stayed here over xmas, decent rooms with clean bathrooms. The staff were amazing and really helpful. Loved the pool, and all the bar games...great place to hang out and meet people. Would definitely come back here :)


Wish they would take credit cards!
