Property Information:

It is located on the east bank of Battambang's Sangker River, near Wat Sangker and overlooking the riverside park where, at dusk and dawn, locals gather to chat, snack and exercise. It takes around 10 minutes to walk from Here Be Dragons into the centre of town, and on a moto or tuk tuk it'll take about the same amount of time to get out into the countryside. Here, you can hang out in the evening after exploring Battambang's beautiful countryside, or kick back for a few days after Siem Reap's temples or the bright lights of Bangkok.

The dorm room bunk beds were hand-crafted by a Khmer bed-maker to an ancient design we nicked from the internet. There are 6 beds in the room, and two shared bathrooms out the back.

    We had a private room for 2 nights and it was a nice quaint place to stay. Their food service can be quite slow at times, but the quality is pretty good. The room was big with two queen beds, however the bathroom could've been cleaner. I would recommend this place and would probably come back and stay again.
