Though I just stayed there for a night, felt very welcoming by the friendly and helpful staffs. They are all so polite! Even after I checked out, they allowed me to grab a shower before heading to the airport. Very thankful indeed!
Had a totally amazing time at Me Mates. Huge lockers in the 8 person dorm, had 2 toilets as well. Staff were awesome, food was good, tuk tuk drivers fun and not trying to rip you off. Made some great friends there and would stay again.
Good hostel with comfortable beds, nice breakfast (even though you have to pay) and super friendly staff. Even after we had checked out of the hostel and left for Angkor Wat, they allowed us to keep our bags at the hostel when we returned again one early morning without a fee (our flight home was in the afternoon). I would definitely recommend this hostel! DO be aware of that the hostel might give you too high a price for the tuktuk drivers outside the hostel. So remember to bargain.
One of the most friendly staff I've ever seen! Very nice hostel in a good position (just next to the royal palace, the national museum and heaps of restaurants street food stalls around). The mattresses are pretty big (queen size) and very comfy. In the room you have aircon and a big locker. They give you also the padlock. If you are too lazy for eating outside, the also have a kitchen and they cook very good meals and cocktail... everything good and cheap!
Looked great and was excited about staying here. HOWEVER, when we arrived it was clear we were the subject of a strange bait and switch for the owner's new hostel: "Lovely Jubbly Place." They told us there was a "wifi malfunction" and Me Mates was now full, but had another.. Lovely Jubbly Place was cool and will become a higher ranked hostel in the area, however, it was not ready for guests (e.g. shoddy electricity). Don't like being deceived or patronized. This owner is no Mate of Me.
Good: The place has a good atmosphere. The staff were nice. Bad: The staff was so badly disorganised, and they TAKE COMMISSIONS FOR MOVING GUESTS TO OTHER HOSTELS! (they abuse their popularity) This is unacceptable for hostels on this site. I verified that they were not really "overbooked", because when I insisted on getting my legitimate booked room, they finally gave up. They put me and another person on the same bed. It took more than 1 hour to resolve with the messy manager.
Great location. Great staff. The rooms have lockers. Nice beds. Cool people to meet. Good breakfast. Nice drinks.
The staff was nice and helpful. The food was great.
I stayed here for a 2 nights whilst traveling Cambodia. The dorm was fine, great air con, and clean bathroom facilities. You get huge lockers for security. The staff are so friendly and helpful with everything. The food at this place was probably the best we had in Cambodia with a great menu and lots of cold drinks. awesome place And Fast wifi. Would definitely stay here again
Definately one of the better hostels Ive stayed at and for sure they deserve the good rating. Met heaps of nice people here, ate some great food....

locker cages are great. ac gets nice and cold if you want it to. standard Asian bathroom but clean. staff do their job. I wouldn't like to stay on the ground floor right next to the bar though.
Great hostel, very clean, comfy beds and clean en suites. Food is good in the bar, very friendly staff! Tuk Tuk drivers are nice(who are employed by the hostel to take you wherever).
friendly staff and very helpful. Great bang for your buck!
Service was great and they try hard to make your stay comfy as possible.
We stayed in Me Mates Villa for 2 nights and had an excellent time. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We didn't need to worry about a thing while we were there. Plus it has a nice bar with delicious food! I would definitely recommend it to anyone travelling to Phnom Penh.

Me Mates was a decent hostel but its not a place I would highly recommend. I was in Siem Reap a few days beforehand & I tried emailing Me Mates to change my overnight stay & they never responded to me. I took an overnight bus from SR to PP & got in at 7am & had to leave @ 10pm the same day to catch a flight, so Me Mates still charged me for the 2 FULL nights, even though I didnt sleep there. Also, I tried having front desk arrange a day tuk tuk, & they quoted $25 USD when should've been $15!
Friendly and helpful staff. Bathrooms were a good size, with nice hot showers!
It's a okay place.The only thing was that they screwed up my reservation. I made a reservation for 2 nights a week in advance. When I arrived at night they told me that they had problems with the wifi (wifi was working fine) and that they were full. They putt me in another me mates gh. Private room, shared with a girl. Told them that I wanna stay there, came back from my tour. Room empty, all my stuff in the common area.. Moved me back to the other gh.. Didn't made it up somehow
The staff were all so friendly and curious about me and where I came from. They made me feel like I wasn't just a person staying at their hostel, but genuinely wanted to get to know me. Their food was delicious and cheap as well and they had a great service for a tuk tuk driver. They are located only 10 minutes walk from the river and it was a nice location.
The location was pretty good opposite the Royal Palace and less than ten minutes to the main street. Beds were comfortable with decent Wifi. The staff weren't that friendly and made it difficult to organise the bus to Siem Reap. It was very clean and the food was good but a bit expensive. The downstairs lounge area is a good place to meet people. The lockers in the rooms were very big.
