Not as good value as expected. The staff were helpful but I was not liking cold showers at no point was there a choice of hot available!
very good Wi-Fi, clean, helpful, the Robert guy has an lot of positive energy and they can provide you a lot of information.
Staff were very accommodating and helpful, does good and easy breakfast. A chilled out atmosphere.
Pretty basic- a comfy mattress on the floor with a mosquito net. But for $3.50 a night it is very good value for money and spotlessly clean as well.

Very simple hostel, mattress on the floor, mosquito nets and individual fans, but very comfortable still - also powerpoints next to the beds. Small lockers are provided out of the room for valuables. Robert was extremely helpful, very easy to talk to and can give you tips and advice for seemingly anything. Location was alright, short walk to the riverfront and plenty of restaurants - local and foreign cuisines.
I missed better pillows and a shelf or something to put my staff near to me appart from the floor
Absolutely great hostel and exactly what I was looking for. Facilities are very basic but you will have everything you need: bed, fan, shower, locker and beer. :) People working there are great and always up for a chat. Overall I really enjoyed it there and stayed way longer than planned. Free 1kg laundry a day and free pickup on arrival and beer glasses that come out of the fridge so the beer stays cooler longer are just some of the little things that make this hostel a unique and great place!
Hostel Nomads was a pleasant but slightly random place to stay. The owner and his mother were really kind, but the hostel was mostly quiet while I was there. The location is a little out of the way - easy walk to the night market and riverfront, farther from most sights. I stayed in the cheapest dorm room, and it was very basic but reasonably comfortable - mattresses on the floor, fans, mosquito netting. Clean, friendly, and cheap, but next time I might look for something closer and more social.
Very nice and quiet hostel close to the river and market. Owner and staff are really friendly and helpful. Dorm is just mattresses on the floor but they provide individual fan and mosquito net. It's great value for money.
Good location only a couple minutes from the river. Robert is super helpful and is full of information. Super clean, lockers with chargers in them, beds on the floor with a personal mosquito net and fan so you don't get too hot. They do a good English breakfast and have beer on tap for 75cents a glass, we drank at the bar each night we were there and had a blast. Lots of good local food in the area too. You also get a free kilo of laundry which is awesome!
Staff were friendly and helpful, the owner Robert was full of advice and helped us with our onward bookings. Our 4 bed dorm was cool, dark and clean, 4 bathrooms to share for everyone so avoid busy times. Fair rates for a tuk-tuk tour to the Killing Fields and S-21. Nice atmosphere and reasonable rates in the bar, good place to meet other travellers. And the puppy is adorable!
Very barebones, but it's a roof over your head at night and that's what counts. Very friendly staff and good for conversation and information. Didn't get the AC room, but the fans in the fan room are definitely adequate for sleeping. Super close to the night market and old market (easy access to street food). Would definitely stay again.
Great value for money, extremely helpful staff.
Robert's mum Brenda checked us in - what a lovely lady!! She was chatty and welcoming and really made us feel at home! We were in the big 8 bed dorm which has mattresses on the floor and a fan/mosquito net per bed. Mattresses were very comfy and no squeaky bunks! The food was really good, little bit expensive but that's normal for hostel food AND it was western - awesome full English! Robert and Narey were helpful & friendly, full of info about everything! All in all, very comfortable stay!! :)

Stayed in a four bed dorm with an air con, definitely recommend, although bunk is very squeaky. Best internet we've had so far, loved the free washing service and cheap drinks. Great advice and assistance with both tours and transfers. Pick up from the airport was very helpful!
Nomads was agreat place with friendly owners, and is kept clean. Security is good. The owners were very helpful with everything. common area was small and facilities were basic, but the price was very affordable.
I've stayed there for 4 days and I've spent a great time! The staff is super friendly and helpful, the room with aircon is big and very quiet (no window), the bathrooms super clean and you can chill in the reception
excellent location !! 5 mins walk from the river. 3 mins walk away from locate markets, restaurant, bar and street food!
Hostel was fine, other guests were great. Staff was either rude or disconnected, honestly it seems as if the owner is in over his head running the place, or that his heart isn't in it anymore. All the other guests we spoke to agreed. Also, we were promised free laundry but their laundry lady had quit because of Chinese New Year and we were offered no further explanation or compensation. Disappointing stay after the good reviews we had read.
