Very helpful staff. The hostel had a nice lobby area and front patio where they served an excellent choice of foods.


The beds were very, very clean in the dorm room, and I appreciated the lockers in the shared eating space. Breakfast is simple but unlimited, which is great! It would be extra feet if there were a way to include protein, too -- maybe peanuts or something like that? The wifi was strong and it was also very, very easy to book all sorts of tours, excursions, and sightseeing directly from the hostel at reasonable prices, which was maybe my favorite part of all. Thank you!


Really liked it here, its really close to the markets and to pub street. Staff were lovely and really helpful with organising tuk tuks for trips. Free pick up from the airport to which was really good. Would definitely stay again.


The staff's English was not overly amazing and the internet was pretty weak, but the place was nice overall.


The hostel is in a great location an is within walking distance of the nightmares and pub street. They also have a reliable tuk tuk service you can book for temple tours. Would definitely recommend.


The staff was very friendly and helpful all time! The location is just perfect! Good place, good peolpe, good price!


I stayed for a week. Met some cool people here and I slept very well. It's not a party hostel! If you're planning to explore the Wat's a lot and do other cultural stuff, this is the place to go. Friendly and knowledgeable manager. Some advice for staff: install a better mount for the shower heads (now the water sprays all over the bathroom), put some pillows on the seats in the lobby/common area, and put a sofa there.


great hostel, awesome staff! the girls and guys at the reception were just wonderful and made the stay perfect. provided help and information. what a great service!


Hostel is in a great spot - right next to a bazaar that leads to pub st. They have tuk tuks always on staff and affordable prices and itineraries for Angkor Wat. Staff was very friendly. I ended up discovering the awesome tuk-tuk driver Jen-ta (don't know how to spell his name). He speaks English probably better than any SE Asian outside of Singapore I've met. I requested him for my third day of Angkor and he was a fantastic guide - strongly recommend you ask for him!


The location of the hostel is superb. It is 3 minutes' walk to the (in)famous Pub Street and the Night Market; 2 minutes' walk to the fine restaurants, a COSTA Cafe and a clean 24-hour convenience store in the King's Road Angkor area. The staff were friendly and helpful. My flight was delayed from early evening to almost midnight. I emailed the hostel to reschedule the free airport pick up and the staff responded to my email within the hour, confirming a Tuk Tuk had been arranged.


Well located i stayed in one room with two bed you have fridge and is quiet the breakfast is bad bu lt at least you have something


Location, staff and facilities all very good. However when we stayed there was absolutely no social atmosphere. We may have just been unlucky but we aren't the first review to suggest so


Really nice place, staff were unbelievably helpful and friendly, making calls and organising things for us. Rooms were, old fashioned but, nice and spacious, ours had a balcony and ensuite. Probably wouldn't stay here again because we would go somewhere more social, wish we'd paid $1-2 more to stay somewhere with more of an atmosphere so we could meet people and go out. If you're just spending the day going to the temples then two nights here would be ideal but for socialising go somewhere else.


Really nice place, good food, friendly staff and decent rooms. Wouldn't stay here for the atmosphere though as people tended to keep to themselves. Great location 5 minute walk into town


This was a good hostel. Just a short walk to the Night Markets and restaurants in Siem Reap. Would recommend, definitely.


It's great. But the food is too sweet for me.

Great location and you get breakfast (only bread and fruit). Honestly, the hostel is out-of-date and it will not be able to keep up with the hipper hostels of simila price. It wasn't dirty, but everything still felt grungy. The rooms and bathrooms were really cramped. And, for some reason, even though it had a place to hang out outside like every other hotel, the atmosphere was near dead. In my entirely full room, people were so quiet, it was like they were afraid to talk and break the silence.

Dear Guests, We are sorry to hear that, as you just stay only for one night and when you check in very late at night so most of the guest they already went to bed and also you check out early to see the temple so it just short time that you met with the other travelers. Thanks,


great stay. just a couple suggestions - install a small shelf by the beds to put your stuff, put liquid hand soap in the bathroom


The staff here is so warm and welcoming as well as helpful. Not a very social hostel bit that's not what I was looking for anyway. Great location. Less than 5 mins walk to Pub St. Dorm rooms are cramped but the beds are comfy, they give you towels, water bottles and soap. Food at the restaurant is ok. Have plugs by each bed with TWO outlets. Showers need a rack or something to hang clothes.


Average hostel - plastic covers on the mattress make for a warm night. The water is stored water and so very metallic, leaves your skin with an iron smell. Location is great!! Straight into the night market and through to the old market Staff are really nice, especially Elisabeth who gets an extra mention for being the nicest hostel member of my Asia trip so far
