After staying in quite a few hostels in Cambodia this place gets it just right. Awesome staff, laid back atmosphere, great location, comfy beds, working wifi even in the rooms, rooftop cinema, ping pong, pub quizzes, the list goes on!


No plugs by the bed to charge devices. Cold showers. No lockers. Weak Internet. Door to AC room sqeaks and weaks you up when people come in. The AC in the room is installed too close to a top bed so it's not on as much as needed because it anoyees the person in that bed. No reading light by bed and room lights are too harsh to leave on.


Loved everything about my stay here! Great place to stay and great for the price. Only thing was in the 3 nights I was there, I had to ask for toilet paper 3 times for the shared bathrooms. There are only 2 shared bathrooms so it goes quickly, and the staff don't replenish often enough, other then that, amazing hostel!


A good bit outside of town but this IS a backpackers place, not like a lot of places that just say they are and proceed to take advantage of you.


Shortened my stay at the hostel because Battambang didn't have that much to offer in my view. The hostel is a nice place to meet people though, with its own bar downstairs and a good location to explore the town. The tuk-tuk drivers who hung around were very funny and friendly, enjoyed the trips with them! Free pick-up service also worked great. If you're more interested in aid work I think it's a good place to stay. Good food, clean, secure and lovely staff always eager to help with everything


Very cool Hostel in the nice City of Battambang. Attached to a Western-Style Bar & Restaurant, therefore you always meet a mix of Travelers and Expats who live in Battambang. Staff is very nice (Khmer & Westerns), food is very good and you can spend a nice evening in the Bar or relaxing in the Bungalows outside.


cozy hostel, nice place to chill out. would have loved to stay longer.

Really cool hostel, basic rooms but all the essentials! Very lively and well equipped bar, and very nice rooftop terrace! Staff really helpful and only 5 mins to walk into town.


Awesome hammock and comfy seating area. Nice bar and food. Huge beds. Basic and nice hostel, has everything you need to have a good time in Battambang. Cold showers are fine!


Great hostel that provides all kinds of accommodation. Stayed at basic dorm room (3usd/night) and it was all right. Bathroom was not in the room but close enough. Great food and nice people.


Staff are super helpful (especially Jen), good dorm, nice atmosphere, lots of local knowledge.


We took the bus from siem reap, when we arrived DJ Tuk Tuk was there holding a sign for the hostel and to our surprise took us there for free. Stayed 2 nights. The dorm beds were big wide enough for 2, clean and comfortable for a budget hostel. Beside each bed were locker boxes which the hostels provided locks for. The bathrooms were clean with cold showers. The staff were very friendly and helped with telling us where to go in town for dinner and drinks.


Loved here be dragons! Awesome food and nice staff :)


Had a fantastic time here. We felt almost instantly at home, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The food was good too. A great place to relax.


I love this hostel,...instead of two days i stayed 4,..love the yard, was enjoying sitting there and drinking beer or coffee from the hostel bar. On the top is a nice terrace where u can make tattoo ( good one)... During the sunsets there is funny Cambodian aerobic going on in front of the hostel. And the staff,...staff is adorable,.. ;)


SStayed only one night, clean, large private room with balcony. Easy to meet people. I thought the food at the Saturday bbq was a little expensive. Would stay here again.


Fun hostel with great staff who were really helpful and organised lots of stuff to do. Lockers in the room would be good though!


Nice hostel, air con was great, food and staff were excellent.


- lack of place locked for the values (passeport, money, computer) - local employees are very friendly and smiling. The owners expats should take a leaf out of their book - cleanness has to be improved within the bar area and in the bathroom (if the rule is to walk barefoot, then every one has to follow that!)

Awesome atmosphere and good sense of humor from the owners. Everything was clean and orderly, only bad part was that they filled up and we didn't book enough nights, our fault.
