Good social hostel, easy to meet ppl. Convenient they have bar and food but pricier. Also they sell bus tix. Only downfall like other ppl have said is the location. Maybe 20-30 min walk. Tuk tuks at hostel are pricier than off the street ones for tours. Also water and food is cheaper across and down the street. Tuk tuk from city to hostel should be only $1-$1.50

The cheap dorm room is right above the bar (which plays very loud music) so it feels like sleeping inside a nightclub. But the more expensive dorm is quiet and very good. Great staff, always wiling to help. The food is expensive for the small amount you get, but is pretty good.

The staff was really helpful and friendly. Great bar, music, and pool area and a fun place to meet fellow travelers.

Really nice place. You have double size beds even in the bunkbed, the rooms are not fancy but clean and neat. Whats really great is the pool and bar area because you meet people sooo easily, but we almost forgot visiting phnom penh because chilling by the pool is so noce :D A little farer away from the centre than most other hostels but mist of the time you take a tuktuk anyways

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were very clean and there was a good atmosphere in the hostel, especially around the bar and pool areas. Staff are extremely friendly and trustworthy and very accomodating.

The downstairs hang out area of this hostel is great. Swimming pool, pool tables, bar, loads of lounge seating, happy hour & good food. Great atmosphere, nice bar staff. That's the winning part of this hostel, the rest is pretty average. The location is out of the way, especially if you are a lone female traveller. Ensuite rooms don't have a door between the bathroom and the bedroom, Laundry is overpriced and they lost two of my shirts. Reception staff unfriendly. Airport pickup didn't show up.

The hostel was great, really friendly staff. There was 8 of us travelling together and they put us all in one room together which was great. It was about a 20 minute walk to the river front, but you could get a tuk tuk for a dollar. And the tuk tuks were reliable, they worked with the hostel. Pool was really nice too. Good and drink was a reasonable price and really good too.

Wonderful hostel, great location - we stayed in the superior private room, huge room with heaps of space. Very friendly staff who helped with airport transfers, bus tickets, sunset river cruise, everything - our air conditioner remote wasn't working on the first night and the staff came up at 11pm and fixed it for us! No problems at all after that. We also ate at the hostel a couple of times and the food was delicious - loved the lemongrass chicken!

Just an average hostel for South East Asia. No real complaints, and the rooms and restaurant are nice and clean, but there’s no real sociable, relaxed backpackers atmosphere. Staff are professional, but not very friendly. However, they do have a swimming pool (although not so large as on the picture), but still it’s amazing after a day in hot and dusty Phnom Penh.

they have toilets for each dorm room, which is really convenient :)

Was here for a one day stopover in Phnom Penh, nothing to complain. Think what makes this place great is its atmosphere and the other guests.

The hostel is pretty average. Mostly what keeps it from being excellent is the location. My friend and I wanted to try to find something to eat the evening we arrived but there was literally nothing in walking distance. The food at the hostel is way overpriced for the small portions you get. The air con was extremely weak so our room was really hot. The pool is a plus though and the staff were friendly. Personally, wouldn't stay here again.

Here at 88 we take all customer feedback on board as we are constantly looking at ways to improve our business. I cant help feel that you have failed to really explore the local area. We are a short walk from Wat Phnom, Central Market & Riverside. Food poisoning is common in SE Asia. We source the best quality food possible to ensure that doesn't happen. We encourage all feedback during your stay, we could have solved your AC issue. Usually its an issue with the remote not being used correctly.

We loved the swimming pool, though it was too bad that there weren't any laying beds. The staff was very friendly.

The hostel arranged a free-pickup from the bus station and the tuk tuk driver took me around the city the next day. Lovely staff and great facilities. The food is delicious, too.
