The cheap beer is good, the atmosphere is more lively than in the surrounding guest houses, and the "feel" of the place is nice. However, the staff weren't friendly, even ignored you sometimes, the food always took ages to come, was overpriced and not good, the rooms were very dirty (sheets, walls, bathroom). If it wasn't for the nice crowd I met, I would have changed hostel. If you do end up staying, go just down the road for better priced tuktuks, and cheaper delicious food.

Just a 10 minute walk to the pub street action. Rooftop bar is fun, cheap beer. booked a prvate room, bed was comfortable, BUT the walls were covered in dirt, there were cobbwebs everywhere, the bathroom had rust stains from the water, and i even saw a centipede in my room. Not a place to relax during the day.
Don't go in this guesthouse !!! lt's the worst place where we have slept in Four month in Asia. We have slept in three different rooms, none was the one we had booked in website, and the three of them were disgusting (matress, pillow, sheet, wall...). The situation beyond completly the staff, there is too much customer. If you really want to go in this guesthouse, choose the dorms because it's only 1 dollar, but beds are in the way to go to the restaurant ( directly in the corridor).
Quite nice, got a room to myself which was roomy but unnecessary. Also despite leaving the fan on it got flipping hot, I would be wet with sweat within 1 minute of stating in the room. The bar was quite chill but not as social as other places I've been to. I felt a bit awkward as a lone traveller until I forcibly made introductions.
excellent value for money.. the hostel is overcrowded with other tourists.. you can find also beds with 1USD per day..
The hostel is 15 minutes walking to the city center, which is quite long in the heat. The rooms are super dirty, smell and are steaming hot. The rooftop bar is nice and the food is good and there are a lot of other backpackers if you like some company. Otherwise I would not recomment this hostel because there are other, way nicer, hostels for the same price.
Good value for money but you do get what you pay for. I was there to see the sights though and not stay in the room. The room was comfortable and clean enough. Great location.
Extremely cheap worth for the money.Strategic since it is walking distance from Old Market & Pub street.Stayed at the $USD1 hostel provided with a mattress,a pillow & mosquito net.Probably you need to put up the photos of it in your profile as well so that people may know what to expect.
This place was good and extremely cheap. I am sure there are better places to stay in Siem Reap, but this place was just so cheap and pretty clean. I liked it and would stay again if I go back to Angkor Wat. The only problem is you are a 15 minute walk from pub street, but the nights are nice in Siem Reap so a 15 minute walk is nothing. Also, the staff does like to screw you over on prices for water a little, but I still liked the place and would stay again.
first i booked single room with fan but when i arrived i saw it and i decided to switch to dorm room. single room looked like a prison cell and there was bad smell inside. i didnt feel like staying there at all. on the other hand the dorm room was very good, clean. i'd recommend that place.
Basic, basic, basic but incredibly cheap! Definitely try the 1 dollar Khmer style no fan dorm - such an experience!
The guy on the phone spoke almost zero english and as a result couldn't cancel our stay here. So as a result I paid for a room I never slept in.
My $1 dorm was actally a bed in the hallway but the mattress was good and so was the musquito net. Good place to meet people , nice bar. Bring earplugs for the noise.
The hostel was very basic. I enjoyed the stay there - it's quite hard to access via transport (although this is the same with the rest of traveling in Cambodia). The staff are quite friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone in tight budget. The beds are comfortable enough.
Great place to stay on a budget. Beds are fine but with very worn sheets. Not the cleanest place in the world. It has what you need though if you just need a place to crash and have some beers
We had a spacious and light room for 2 (could easily stay 3) with 8usd only! The only problem we had - water was blocked in bathroom. And also the thing I loved that there's no Internet in rooms, so people go to the reception and start Communicate!) There's also the cafe-bar-club inside, so if u don't want to go far, u have everything inside) Just near by night market. Staff was tired, but helpful. Book in advance.
A good experience ! This hostel is set like a cambodian village, with mattress en wooden mat and bed everywhere almost in open air. For a simple dorm without fan it's just 1 $, that's the cheapest place i ever stayed, and really close to the main street. But it's very noisy cause of the rooftop bar (where you can choose you own music), and it doesn't have lot of bathrooms, which get dirty easily cause the showers are on top of the toilet, so everything is always wet and with footprints.

The rooms were very average at best. No air con just fan which was switched off at various times of the day and night by locals using a switch outside our room! Best part of the hostel was the bar which was cheap and served decent food.
COME AND EXPERIENCE THE VILLAGE STYLE, ENTHRALLING SIGHTS FOR YOURSELF. VALUE FOR MONEY. STAFF ARE FRIENDLY, FRESH AIR, EXCEPT THE WATER DIDNT SMELL GOOD. OTHER THAN THAT, SUPERB VERY CHEAP.
i planed to stay 3 days and ended up staying almost 2 weeks...good atmosphere, friendly staff, nice bar and roof...and sooooooooooooo cheap! i recommend!
