Great hostel, pretty noisy until late as there are no walls the dorm room is all open to the outside but beds have bug nets over them, I could wake up and see the ocean which was nice!! Lots of bathrooms out of order when I was here which was frustrating, staff not great, bar staff were better!! Right by the ocean, sun beds, bar, pool table lots happening and lots of backpackers to meet!! I did love it!!


This is a cool hostel right on the beach but it can be very hot as there are only fans in the dorms. It has good area to go in the day on the beach with a beach bar and good communal area but nothing going on in the night at all! Staff were constantly stoned lol but that didn't bother us! Toilets aren't that great and neither are showers but can't expect more from a hostel on the beach than the shack style it is!


Great spot on Otres 2. Good price, chill beach bar, open air beds if you like.


Location for this hostel is amazing. The staff seemed very uninterested in what we wanted. We moved from a dorm to a private room due to hearing that the dogs sleep in the dorms there are no walls thus woken by the sun and occasional rainfall. Such a shame as it has so much potential to be amazing, staff and cleanliness ruin it unless your interested in puff puff passing a joint all day long. Breakfast should be included as makes stay even more expensive. Would not recommend this.


If you're booking a boat to go to Koh Rong with this hostel refuse to take the Romny boat company. Took me and 4 others to the wrong island on the way over and on the way back the boat just never came.


It's not a bad place to stay and it has a quiet and excellent location away from the city, right on the beach. European staff were less than helpful, usually because they were too busy rolling spliffs. The food is great. I booked a tour but got told the next day, 5 minutes before we should have gone, that no-one was interested. The organiser had been smoking and couldn't be bothered organising. Of the 10 toilets, only 2 were working when I stayed, the rest were blocked.


The location is right on the beach and theoretically you should get a good nights sleep despite the lack of walls as it is a quiet area. However there are dogs that run uncontrolled around the hostel including the dorms, particularly at night they get into fights growling and barking which isn't pleasant. The staff are unhelpful and know little about the surrounding area (probably because they are stoned all the time). Their quarters are above the dorm and they are not considerate at night.


If they cleaned the toilets more than once a day our stay would have been much more pleasant! However great stay, great value for money. Just let down by cleaning standards.


Location was good. Would be a nice place to stay if you don't mind hanging out in a cloud of weed smoke at all times. Staff were always high and unhelpful, more than once I had to interrupt the rolling of a joint to get service, much to their annoyance.

Excellent location on Otres beach 2. Can spend the whole day relaxing on the beach or getting to know people at the footprints bar. Cool line area with movies and Wi-Fi if you need some chill out time. I went there twice so definitely recommended.


+++ Quirky building on the beautiful Otres 2 beach with decent food, drinks and own beach area with sun loungers etc. Mosquito nets and small safety deposit boxes in room. Nice communal areas. --- Mostly Western staff, a lot of them were really miserable and not very helpful, although not all of them. Felt like I was disturbing their home. Wifi didn't work very often, may be due to location however. Bathrooms were dirty and running water was brown...no excuse even if using a water tank.


Very dirty and too far away for everything. You will pay a lot in tuk tuk's.


Very beautiful location! It is about a 15 min tuk tuk ride from town but I came for a relaxing beach break so it was perfect! I had a private bungalow with bathroom and was very comfortable. Lots of room to relax on the couches, tables and chairs inside and at the beach front. Loved the morning yoga as well! Will definitely stay again!

This is the coldest and least friendly place i have been in asia. The cambodjan staff are really miserable and the western staff are even worse. And the idea of having a boxing gym attached to the bottom of the dorms, which when it was being used shook the whole building, is absolutely stupid. Overall a miserable place full of miserable people.


Great place!

Good place for Dorm. I would not stay there in the Private Rooms. Do not expect staff to help you. The beach, Otres II is great place to chill out

This is the least secure place I have ever stayed and the owner doesn't care enough to implement any changes. You are just warned stuff gets stolen! The Maintenance is poor. The kitchen turns out some good food so that redeemed it a little and they offer a well priced boat trip which was cool. I had fun here but I probably wouldn't chose this again if I came back this way.


Things got stolen from our room. The staff could not have cared less. They did not have any overview if you'd paid for your bed or not and really could not answer any of the questions relating to the hostel or the tours offering (I.e what bus company they used to Siem reap). Otres 2 is beautiful though.


Great location. Nice room.


I don't know how this hostel has such a high rating. The beach and setting is lovely. But the hostel is very dirty, the sheets are not very clean with bed bug bite marks all over them. They have a problem with bed bugs in the dorms which they seem to fail to acknowledge, which I presume will get much worse if left. The bathrooms are very dirty and the staff are friendly, but are very disorganised. Left covered in bed bug bites and a severe sickeness bug. It's a shame, could be a great place.
