Decent hostel with a great location and good atmosphere. The 25 bed dorms aren't the best, pretty hot and no air con. Showers are a bit dirty too. But the pool and bar are ace and are a great place to socialise. Food at the restaurant is ok too.

Was moved to review this hostel since it was overall very good, but the management and staff attitude is poor. The facilities are great, and I would recommend this hostel overall and would stay here again. The pool/bar area is fantastic and it's a social hostel with areas to chill out in also. Be warned, however: - Staff may talk loudly and continue to talk loudly after being asked to be quiet early in the morning (7am) - Be sure to keep your receipt. The computerized system is badly managed

This place is fantastic! Such good value for money, great pool and a chilled atmosphere. As long as you're not expecting anything fancy and can sleep in very open dorms you're good to go :) would recommend for any backpacker in siem reap :)

The staff here are horrendous. What could have been a fairly nice hostel with good rooms, showers, etc was ruined by the fact that every single person working there was useless.

Loved staying here, really clean and everyone was very friendly. Laundry service wasn't brilliant, i asked on four separate occasions whether my laundry was ready and they kept telling me come back later come back later because they couldn't find my laundry. I got it in the end but after quite a stressful day. I would still stay here again just won't do my laundry there!

the hostel was clean But overall wasn't happy here. the building works everywhere are very noisy. the more expensive 16 bed dorm is a con as its separated from the 25 bed by an open doorway effectively making it the same room, and staff use the room as a short cut out. pool is nice but the staff were unable to control the one customer who insisted on playing the same song on repeat. and when my stuff went missing the staff were totally unhelpful and laughed at me. very sad, it has potential.

We had booked two beds in the dorm and the hostel had overbooked so we got upgraded to a private room for only 2 dollars more! This was awesome and we really appreciate that especially when we found out the private room was usually 20 dollars a night! The pool area was still under slight construction but it was still awesome! Very helpful staff would recommend a stay!

Great time that we booked for an extra week. Friends that we were with booked anything from one extra night to a week also. The pool and restaurant was lovely. Not far from the bars. One bad thing is the 16bed dorm is closed, had booked that, they gave me no warning and tried to put us in a 26bed dorm. Spoke to manager who was lovely and upgraded us. Would stay again. Amazing time.

I enjoyed my time at the hostel. The staff was very helpful and arranged so I could stay an extra day and also helped me book the trip to Ankor Vat which was really great. The food was also very nice and cheap. I would stay here again.

Great pool. Construction work at the hostel started early in the morning, bit too early. Food is ok, location is good enough, short walk to the nightmarket/ pubstreet

Great atmosphere, good kitchen, clean rooms. Definitely good value for money. Comes with swimming pool and 2 bars. They are still building/expanding, which causes some trouble, since there's sand everywhere. However, soon this place will be even more amazing.

We were only supposed to stay here 1 night and ended up staying 3, we didn't want to leave. Fab pool area and bar, really good for meeting people and getting involved in stuff around Siem Reap ( bar crawls, tours, etc). Bit of construction going on at the moment but only to improve it, can imagine it looking amazing in a few weeks. Dorm rooms were nice, clean and good AC. The food was cheap and so nice! The dorm had a personal locker but the door did not lock, but would highly recommend anyway!

The staff are absolutely lovely here! Kitchen is open 24 hours so you can get food before Angkor wat at dawn. The pool is fantastic. Only complaint is that you can't lock your dorm room door (although you do have lockers). I'd definitely stay again!

No reviews seem to mention this, but the complex is undergoing massive construction right now. Not that that is a bad thing, but buildings seem disjointed, the sunset bar is not really completed, the pool is hidden and requires crossing the construction zone, etc. The pool also could benefit from more shade. The water was warm and not refreshing and in the hot sun there were few places for someone concerned about UV exposure to seek refuge.

the staff seems distracted all the time, maybe because it's busy all the time. Vegetarians getting served meat, and my aircon wasn't working and took quite some time and effort to even get someone's attention for this. the pool is nice and lots of young backpackers.

Needed more ventilation in the room. One little window isn't enough.

Big spacious room with personal fan. Rooms were almost too big to meet people! But nice place. Bar them mixing my bed up and having to give me a different bed. Was all good.

Decent location once you find it, but their directions on Hostelworld are TERRIBLE and if you look them up on Google maps, it will take you to the Mad Monkey hostel. Don't expect to sleep-people were stomping around the hardwood floors from 4am-6am, people yelling on the bottom floor, etc. Took them 40 minutes to get me just eggs and toast, and it wasn't busy at all so if you plan to leave early for Angkor Wat, grab breakfast at one of the places down the street. Cleanish, comfortable beds
