brilliantly ran hostel, central Phnom Penh just a short walk from central market/the riverfront. staff are amazing, definitely recommend.
Well this was the first hostel i landed in on my trip, and boy, was i delighted. After getting picked up from the airport, i was greeted by the host, Robert. A backpacker himself he helped me plan my itinerary for the day. My 6 dorm room was neat and tidy, and my locker was big enough to fit in my laptop bag! My room didn't have a nice view, but right outside you'll see a colony of bats, which is a pleasing site too! Highly recommend this place!
A basic hostel that has an amazing host. Hostel was decent and really clean. The owner, Robert, was really friendly and elpful. He knows a lot and is always available to help. I wish they had bigger lockers where i can put my bag though.but they make up for this by giving away free 1kg laundry.
Good location near the Quay. Owners are quite helpful and there is free laundry! Lots of tips and recommendations posted all over the wall. It's off-season so the hostel was pretty quiet, but it was nice being able to get a good night's sleep in an almost empty room!
Nice hostel with lots of info located close to the riverfront. Locker wasn't big enough to fit either of my bags, but the security of the place in general seemed pretty good.
We arrived to this hostel having booked a 7 bed mixed dorm and what we found turned out to be a 12 matresses on the floor dormitory without air conditioning but noisy fans. It was quite shocking when the owner of the hostel charged money for hot water to prepare instant noodles, he was kind though letting us have a shower for free...
Good location, really informative kind owner and a puppy. Perfect
Ideal place, did the job for one night stopover as I needed. Helpful staff.
I cannot say enough about the perfect experience I had at Nomads. The staff was unbelievably helpful -- letting me in at midnight, arranging the easiest tuk-tuk ride from airport to hostel, booking buses the next morning, and generally offering any and all information needed to navigate Cambodia. WONDERFUL place! So clean comfortable, friendly, knowledgeable. I slept like a baby! Perfection.

Interesting setup with the beds on the floor. Very informative owner.
This is a really well thought out hostel that gets many of the little things right. There is a plug in the locker to charge your phone or laptop and you get a days worth of laundry done for free every day you are there. Robert is a really helpful guy who is happy to share tips and suggestions about Cambodia. I definitely recommend spending the extra dollar or whatever it is on the ac rooms which are much nicer than the fan rooms. My only complaint about this place is the overpriced food.
This hostel wasn't quite as close to everything as I was expecting. They don't have soap in the bathrooms and there was rarely any toilet paper. There was a little incident with my tuk-tuk pick-up as well, so I learned I should be pleasantly surprised if they come. The owner is very knowledgeable about the area and is full of ideas and recommendations, though he does tend to prattle on a bit. Be aware-some of the pricing info on the board is outdated (for the museums, etc)
Was a very good stay. And the owner was a nice and helpful person. There was an error with the booking and for the first night he took us personally to a guest house that he trusted. Very good place.
You get what you would expect from a Nomads! Very nice, helpful staff.
The hostel is in a really good location in Phnom Penh. The Dorms are basic, but they have everything you need to be comfortable. The owner, Robert, is an incredibly friendly englishman and a great source of information about Phnom Penh and Cambodian culture in general. I had a great time staying here and would highly recommend Nomads to anybody going through Phnom Penh.
Really good experience here! Clean place good staff and a great location. Robert talks too much but whatever. The lady in the kitchen cut up my dragon fruit for me and gave me a bowl to eat it out of.
The owner English man who was extremely helpful gave us future travelling plans and warned us about the usual local scams, breakfast was a little expensive but also gorgeous real beans!!
Robert is truly a charming fellow and so is his mom whom I spent quite a time with while there. More about the hostel though- very barebones and practical. Beds were not beds, but matresses with fans adjacent to them with bug nets surrounding them. Showers had two settings: cold and colder but that was welcomed after a long day. Internet never held, so don't rely on it. Overall a solid place. Robert is also the best middleman for bus services to many destinations, so use his services offered.
