The quickest and the most professional check in ever! :) The hostel is cool, rooms are a bit gloomy but everyone was nice and all questions we had were answered. Location is great, close to palace, river and main street but not for night walks - it's dark, empty and a bit creepy if you stay out longer.
Paid for private room, but had no hot water the whole time (despite promises that it would be turned on). Good A/C, nice and cold (but only in the room - lobby was very hot). But lobby smells like straight fart.
We loved Dara!!! He was great fun xxx

Very nice beds and clean rooms with lockers big enough for a whole backpack. However, the choice of black walls gives the place a little bit of a gloomy atmosphere and the lobby and parts of the hostel had a weird musty smell. As well, some of the front desk staff did not speak English very well and as a result gave incorrect directions around town. Atmosphere also lacking, a number of people were sleeping in our room by 8pm so we had to whisper and there was no one in the common area.
Rooms don't have windows so it is dungeon like... There was an awful sewage problem when we were there so it wreaked of that. Very nice staff and no real issues aside from that.
Lovely Jubbly was a strange place. Heaps of potential to have great atmosphere and social scene but no one hangs out downstairs at the bar/pool table area. Our room had no natural light which was terrible. Also no personal light so once the main light was turned off at night it was pitch black. Very small room. I think the location was ok, but not a lot to see or do by just walking around close by.
Location great Really clean Helpful staff and lots of assistance in travel and tour arrangements Lacks atmosphere even though there is a communal area Our private room felt like a prison cell because there is no natural light
Comfy beds, clean bathroom, no bed light, very poor wifi in the bedroom The 4bed female form is like a prison cell, beds you can only just squeeze between, no space other than the lockers for your bag (if it's not too big) no window, I opted to move to the 6bed mixed dorm. Breakfast is good, staff on the bar are lovely The hostel has a very strange off putting smell throughout. Personally is too dark, the ceiling need to be painted white to let the light bounce around. Not great Not bad
Nice staff and very helpful, bit of a mix up with our room but very helpfully sorted it out and had a very basic but comfortable enough. Free pool and good happy hour deals.
It's very clean. Very warm though. Also, everything looks really nice. But it's quiet here. Maybe you could do something to attract more people, because the hostel is really nice, only the people are missing. Beds are really comfortable. You offer great food and the bar is really nice.
The receptionist couldn't help much due to communication issues.
Stayed here for two nights in a mixed dorm. Everyone gets his own locker, which was quite large, and lock. Very clean, nice shower pressure, staff was very helpful and seemed to be genuinely interested in us.
Kimchea at desk was very nice and helpful. Dorms were clean with lockers and two separate showers and toilets. Aircon was on all day and they also have pool table and computer access. Only thing to note is the 2 dollar price is just a promo and doesn't work more than a day and it gets turned on and off quite often. Plan on beds being 4 dollars for walk ins or second day.
Staff was very helpful with booking bus tickets to Siem Reap. Also for where to go in Phnom Penh. Good for price and location.
Very helpful staff. Helped make arrangements to visit local attractions. Hostel is located in an area that is not very clean but is close to some bars and restaurants for local and international cuisine. Hostel is short walk from Riverside and from the palace. Night market (Wed thru Sun, I think) is about a $1.50 ride in a tuk tuk, not that far it's walkable. Room was clean but music from the ground floor bar was a little loud on the first floor. Cheap drinks at bar, $0.75 drafts of Anchor.
Bring your earplugs! I was given room 104, right beside the stairwell. Unfortunately, because the hostel has a modern aesthetic and is a series of concrete boxes without soundproofing, the music that played until 12am and started again early in the morning reverberates through the walls. Clean, big beds, good location, but not a great hostel for meeting people. The bar was dead and the other people in the hostel obviously were hanging out somewhere else. All in all, decent value for money.
Located river side of town - good location if you want to be there.
Basically a concrete bunker. No windows, and the mattresses were hard too. On the plus side, the concrete made it easy to blast the air conditioner and make the room into a refreshing refrigerator away from the heat
