I loved my stay here! The staff are lovely and very helpful. They helped me organize an overnight bus, gave clear directions for the main sights, and conveniently had tuk tuk drivers who were great to deal with. The rooms are tidy. I stayed in one of the private rooms which had a bathroom connected and it was a good sized room, with a comfortable bed. I stayed a second time in a dorm which was really comfortable also, clean and had really large single beds. Very safe and close to town centre.
Good, clean hostel. The staff is helpful and nice. They help with bustickets and can arrange the tuktuk-drivers for you. I liked the writing board to share tuktuks etc a lot :)! Had the idea there were more groups/couples than solo travelers.
The fan in our non-AC room was too slow and the regulator wasn't functioning properly.

Double room with bath for $6.5. Value was good as the room was clean and neat. In the bathroom the ceiling could use a cleaning and a paint job though. A plus is the pieces of bread and coffee in the morning you can get in the lobby. Atmosphere is cool and staff supportive and friendly. Meals at the hotel are slightly below average for Siem Reap but cost at least double compared to the neighbouring countries Vietnam and Thailand, which are richer countries.
Great hostel if you want to chill and get away fom the party ones. The best staff! Super nice, helpful and very good english. Rooms were nice and very clean. The even made your bed every day. Perfect location. Recommed it 100%
Stayed 4 nights in twin room end of July 2014. Room was big. Sheets had stains on them and were not changed when the room was cleaned. Slept in sleeping bags. A/C was good. Hostel was probably good by Cambodia standards although there are likely better places to stay within Siem Reap. Free breakfast is only bread, tea and instant coffee although you can purchase additional items.
Stayed in double room. Not much to complain about, but here we go: Breakfast is bread/jam only, so they pretty much make you buy something additional. Value isn't good considering the poor included breakfast and after staying in a different hostel around the corner. Tab water smelled and tasted awful. Location great, Staff friendly. It's still a good place really, just pricy.
Thank you so much Laura for organizing my transport for me and to get around. And thank you Bursing for being the great Tuk Tuk driver who brought us all the way to Bang Melia and Back. I will definitely be back.

We already miss our dear friends from Hi Siem Reap!! Pisith and his staff were amazing and so friendly, they warmed our hearts! The tours we did with them were wonderful, and the room/facilities couldn't have been better! We recommed this hostel to everyone! Also, try the food they serve, and the beer-- great time!! We miss u! Tanya and Valerie
It's staffs are nice, the rooms are clean and its location is superb. Going to the old market will only take you 5 minutes, and everything is almost accessible within their area. Wifi is not bad, but it gets slow as more people start to connect. You can also meet a lot of travelers hanging out in the ground floor. They have a medium size parking lot with TV and a pool table for people to chill and drink their 50 cents draft beers.
Amazing staff, so helpful and friendly. Really nice place, everything was super clean.
Brilliant location just over the footbridge from Pub Street so very close to the main town but quiet enough to get a good night's sleep. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice atmosphere, good place to meet other travellers. Very reasonable price and they kept the hostel very clean and tidy.
A really nice hostel, our room was clean and the staff were nice. They could have been a bit more helpful at times though. We booked a bus from siem reap to Thailand with them which was fine and a good price. Beware though they do not provide all the facilities they state....no bike hire available at the hostel, the place is just around the corner which was fine. There are only really two social areas and the spa is an old hot tub which wasn't in use. The have their own tuk tuk driver too.
The place was great for its location mainly, and very clean. I liked the mattress and double pillows. But I didn't like that there is no lockers in the rooms, only at the front desk, no real hang out area: the entrance is the only real thing that is bareable with the heat but not much space, the Jacuzzi was broken, and food prices are touristy so it is not that expensive but expensive for Cambodia. Breakfast included was nice, even though really basic (the coffee, bread butter jam)
Friendly staff, very helpful and smiling. Very good location as well.
Really enjoyed our stay here. Stayed in the private ensuite double. Rooms were clean and staff were friendly and helpful. We used the tuk tuk driver from the hostel who was great. Some other tuk tuk drivers socialised in the evening. The outside area is great for socialising. The room was a bit dark and would have preferred a lighter colour of paint, also aircon was extra in a private room, so I would stay in the dorm if returning. Overall great hostel.
Rooms req keys, but there only small lockers available for valuables not your whole bag. Quiet location but a 2minute walk takes you to the markets and pub street. Staff are friendly and helpful and they have their own tuk tuk drivers attached who are good too. Potentially need to keep working on their English to get the 'excellent' rating but they are pretty good Big social area. Clean. Good value. Can get good food there.
Location is good, staff is nice, dom - shower room need to change curtain and fitting location is not good enough.
Perfect location, very helpful and nice staff, good place to relax after the temples!

Atmosphere and social aspect were seriously lacking. The "hot tub" was unopened and never saw anyone in it. Moved to Mad Monkey after a few days and was much happier there. Much more social, had a restaurant and bar and the pool was absolutely necessary during the hottest time of year (April - June)
