Very clean and very secure. The owner was also very helpful
In the larger room, the beds are just mattresses on the floor. The bunks in more private rooms are really loud and squeaky and kept more than one person up at night, but I found the bottom bunk of my room to be perfectly acceptable. Robert, the owner, was very helpful and knows the city well. Breakfast here is a little pricey but delicious (English tea and bacon!). The location is walking distance to a lot of things to do and see. For the price, it's a pretty good hostel.
Good system for organising tuk tuk's to the killing fields etc. Owner is very eccentric and helpful. Need more staff though. Chips are legit here
Only about 20% of the time was there toilet paper in the bathroom. The common area was sort of depressing. The beds were noisier than an elephant in a Madison Square Garden. All around just kind of depressing place. I mean when we started there were two tiny chairs on the balcony. By the time we left there was one (none?) Does the owner even go upstairs? Never, ever staying here again. Stay at Onestopp, they are SOOOOOOO much better in every single regard imaginable.
Staffs of Nomads is kind and room is clean.it is near night market and mekong river。it has food street ju s t behind the hostel .it is just fine.

We were met by a very unwelcoming staff! They did not have any places where we could put our luggage or sit down and wait before check in either. Because we did not feel welcome, we chose to stay at another hostel instead.
The owner Robert was very helpful in showing us things to explore in Phnom Penh. The tuk tuk package tour price was reasonable, moreover their driver could speak in English quite well. The location of the hostel is strategic as it is within walking distance to the weekend night market, pub street, riverside as well as the bus station. I think the only improvement is to have a less sandy floor. Other than that, I don't any concern throughout my stay here :)
Excellent stay. Free transfer from bus station, free laundry for the 1st kg for 3 night stay, clean, relax environment and perfect location in Phnom Penh.
Great service and the staff were very welcoming.
Had a great two night stay here and it was a really good base for exploring Phnom Penh. 6 bed dorm was clean and comfortable and the bar area was a nice place to meet people and have some food and drinks. Owners were lovely and really helpful.
The staff were the best part of the stay here, very helpful and knowledgable and worked on a tab system so you didnt have to pay for anything until the end of your stay. Laundry service, nice food at the bar downstairs, the shared dorm i was in was fine, the only thing there was no personal light. But they did have universal plugs above the beds, and also inside lockers. Not sure how security gate works, i came back at 11pm while it was closed on a guy on a tuk tuk waiting outside opened it.
Great location! Friendly staff. We put our names on the board in the common area and arranged a trip to the killing fields and the s21 prison with other guests which was really good. Breakfast is not included. Good location to the riverfront and to the central market. The room felt a bit overcrowded and smelly. The bathroom also smelled of the drains.
You just gotta love the host of this place ! Such a nice person who's always keen for a chat. It was just way to hot up in the room and the room was sadly highly illuminated due to a construction on the other side of the road!

clean, basic hostel with extremely nice staff. Robert was so informative and helpful in organising the cheapest way to do things. only slight issue was that kitchen wasn't always available as its a bit understaffed. but plenty of places to eat nearby. beer was cheap and chips were delicious
little things let this hostel down such as never enough toilet paper, lack of reading lights, meaning you had to turn on the room light when leaving in the morning or use a torch. Location was ok, close to the night market and water front. Staff were helpful in giving safety tips eg don't carry bags at night. Hostel always clean. The shared tuk tuk system for the killing fields was a good way to save money. Buses booked here seemed overpriced and drivers drove like maniacs!
Good hostel to use as a base to explore Phnom Penh as it's walking distance to many of the markets and the owner as his own tuk tuk drivers which make exploring the killing fields and toul sleng an easy day trip
The staff here are amazing!! So helpful, they got our visas for us while in Sihanoukville and helped book our transportation everywhere. They even did our laundry for free and had it folded and ready :) it's only about a 5 minute walk to Riverside full of restaurants!
Lovely little hostel. Cheap, clean and safe

Rob is the man! Best host - he truly went out of his way to find where our night bus left from, organized our tour to the killing fields for a good price, and has a super cute dog.
