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.


Nice place and very helpful stuff! You get a free beer on arrival. (Y)


Helpful and friendly staff, social atmosphere. 15 minute walk from the heart of town. Beds are a bit shakey and the dorm room was pretty small. Not many other options in battambang, definitely the place to stay!


Pros - beds comfortable and quite a good location, 15min walk from centre. Cons- not so clean, no where to hang anything in shower, no individual bed light or a powerpoint anywhere near my bed. Rooms very dark an damp smelling. Other than nice german girl at bar staff didnt seem knowledgable on area and some cultural practices. This hostel is ok if you are just looking for a basic place to stay and a bed for the night. The bar was ok but didnt offer a great social atmosphere for a solo traveller


I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff are so helpful and friendly locals, you get a free beer on arrival, the wifi works all good, it's close to town, the beds are really big, there's a roof top where they do yoga once a week for just 2bux and a bar lounge where they do quiz night once a week, a restaurant open till 9pm with great food at decent prices, and I fund other friendly solo travellers to go on great adventures with... What more could you want!


Nice hostel, nice staff, huge huge beds. Many nights have a nice activity. Around 10 minutes walk from the center though and cold showers.


This hostel is very comfortable and I will come back in the future whenever I am in Battambang. Thank you for making my travel a wonderful one.


It's ok for one night. Beds are comfortable. Stuff helpful. Bathroom not clean.


Here be dragons is such a nice chilled out hostel with really great friendly staff who are willing to help you whenever you ask. The beds were absolutely massive and really comfy and although the shower was cold it was still really clean except for a few creepy crawlies (to be expected being outside). They serve really great food at a reasonable price and do cheap water refills. 5-10 minute walk to town and nice courtyard area to chill in at the front. Met some cool people and would 100% return!


Fantastic hostel! Good location, spacious and soft beds, good facilities, awesome staff and a great bar with infoor and outdoor chill out area. I will 100% recommend staying at this place in Battambang, simply the nicest hostel in town! Get the one-day tuk tuk sightseeing tour from local Nakim who also works at the bar some nights a week! Stay here and enjoy Battambang!


Great little place with a good social bar but what made this place for me was Nakim. Nakim is a tuk tuk driver who takes you on tours around Battambang and he is great. He also works behind the bar sometimes. The hostel has great wifi and a good food selection and if you want to eat local it is close to the food market. You even get a free bear when you arrive. Would stay again.


Would love more hostels like this. Staff are exceptional, they make everything easy (think bookings for shows, buses etc), very friendly and full of advice when you're pondering things in the bar/cafe area any time of the day. Music can be a little loud but nothing too drastic, I thought itwas a bit much at 5am once but turned out to be the exercising grannies across the road!


We had 2 great nights at the hostel. Nice & friendly staff, very helpful.


Nice staff but only the owner speaks fluent english, open hostel with a bar so nice place to meet people and just chill during the hot days. However the room was rather dirty and toilets outside with lots of insects in them...


Great place, great people.


A great hostel with nice staff and great beds. The atmosphere was something to go back to Battambang for. The only negative thing I can think of, is that there were only two bathrooms on our floor, of which one didn't have a door... Fix it guys, and this will be one of the best hostels I have stayed at so far!

This hostel is good for solo travellers. Very basic facilities (dorm room only had fans which meant it was very hot at night, bathrooms and showers were outside and were cold water only). However, given how cheap the rooms are, how friendly and awesome the staff are and everything is very homely, worth staying if you are okay with the above!


Very friendly staff, clean rooms, and good food from the restaurant


Very nice place to spend a few days in Battambang! The staff was very nice and helpful. The food was okay, but there are lots of good places in town, so definitely check out a few restaurants!
