The big draw here is the pool and amazing common area. The dorms are also really big and open so you've plenty of space. Only downside is its outside of the main backpacker zone of restaurants and bars but this can be overcome with tuk tuk ad Moto services which the hostel offers. A definite recommendation!
Very clean rooms and great staff. The restaurant has good food too (and cheap drinks at the bar). A pool table free of charge and the pool itself were awesome. It was very easy to meet people too! I would stay here again for sure.
Brilliant hostel, great food and bar, good atmosphere and pool is definetly a bonus! Room was spotless and big beds, would reccomend!

Great place to stay! The bar has great food at great prices. Plenty of people to meet and shoot pool with. Beds are big and comfy. Had some issues with a phone charger gone missing but it was recovered. Would stay here again for sure.
Nice enough. It is located out of the way though. Tuk tuks aren't too expensive to get where you want to go but not in a location to walk back to at night, The individual lights are nice but they are too bright to use when people are sleeping. The pool area is nice to hang out at. Expensive for Cambodia though. They have the most expensive laundry, drink, and food prices I saw in Cambodia. All in all it wasn't bad, but it wasn't notable either.
This hostel is good, apart from the location, a bit far from the city center.
The lockers are cages with and some have holes a hand could easily fit through, and the music at the bar can be very loud if your in a room close, so bring ear plugs if you plan on getting to sleep early.
Although located a bit out of the main centre of town, really good value for money. Clean, tidy and big beds. The staff was very helpful in arranging daytrips and onward travelling. What I liked is that the bar, lobby, check in and pool are all in the same spot so you're bound to meet others very quick.
+++ Staff were friendly and helpful. Pool! Nice bar with cheap food and drink. Big standalone beds, no bunks. Wifi was always working well. --- One bathroom so usually had to wait of a morning, it also got a bit dirty with a huge puddle in front of the toilet from the shower. Couple of cage lockers had holes in so could fit a hand in easy.
Excellent staff, excellent hostel, highly recommend!!
Nice visit with fun and friendly staff. The atmosphere was really fun, although the location was a bit out of the way from the river front where lots of places to eat, however I would stay again!
A better bar than it is hostel. The dorm we stayed in was right above the bar so sleep is impossible. They say its cheaper because of this and the noise stops at 12, but even when the music stops they let people stay downstairs playing pool, drinking etc so still really noisy, until 3am on 2 occasions. Our bathroom wasn't cleaned the entire time i was there, no soap etc. And the staff weren't the friendliest either. Saying that its a great bar and atmosphere, but definitely better places to stay
Good value hostel, spacious communal area with bar and small pool. Problem is no sunny area to sit, all in the shade. Large rooftop area wasted, could be used as sitting area in the sun. A Computer for use and somewhere to watch and listen to films on tv, as music only played in communal area no chance to listen to it.
Nice hostel but a bit far from the centre if you don't plan to hire a tuk tuk to go everywhere. Otherwise the common area is very nice and the double room with ensuite bathroom was clean and spacious.
We enjoyed our stay at Eighty 8 and the staff is really helpfull, especially "Two", we visited Phnom Penh on his tuk tuk, he's a nice guide. Thank you!
Had a great night here. Met lots of fun young people. Played pool till late. Pool itself is nice. Rooms were nice and clean with big beds and great sized lockers. Would come back for sure. Great social space around the bar. Just down the road from Wat Phnom.
Fantastic hostel, well appointed, great staff and very clean. A nice place to chill out and relax, particularly with the pool. Staff were all pleasant and no problems with them. Only issue is the location, which is too far away from the main attractions to just do a quick walk out and back - unless you hire a tuk tuk every time. Nothing they can do about it, so if you want to book a nice place to stay, do it here!
Great hostel and kind staff - helped make the most of my stay.
I stayed here six nights (only beCause I was too lazy to move, which I should have done) and did not find the staff helpful or friendly. They never went out of their way to help me with travel or make me feel at home. Laundry and food were overpriced for the quality. And the location is not convenient. Not much within walking distance, plus the drivers they allow to hover in their entryway will barely let you out the door if you choose to walk. The internet is very poor. Pros: clean, big beds
