Staff were super friendly, arranged groups to share tuk tuks to museums to save money. Great place to chill out after a busy day with plenty of places to eat nearby. Cheap breakfast and really clean. We booked a sleeper bus to Siem Reap through the hostel and paid $11 for a nicer bus, but ended up on the same old cheaper buses, everyone else only paid about $7. I would recommend booking directly at the bus station as the hostels understandably need to make a profit on what they sell.


The location is fantastic! Close to restaurants, bus terminal, breakfast is great, and the staff are nice.


We gave it a second try (our first booking through booking.com didn't work, or got lost) and this time we could stay at the hostel. Location is amazing, if you don't mind hearing the street during the night. All in all a good experience.


Good location on quayside- walkable distance to main sights and also night market for food. Comfortable and clean dorm room and bathroom area. Brilliant staff- very helpful in terms of local information, booking transport on from PP and service with a smile! Highly recommended.


Good place to stay if you're in Phnom Penh for a few days. Wifi is spotty at times, but other than that it's good value for money. Close to the drop off point for lots of bus companies.


Slept in a 4-dorm, really small and so hot. Not really clean either. Also don't do your laundry here. Staff was really friendly!


Good place to stay, clean and helpful staff.


Right by the river, close to bus stops, far from other backpacker areas. Comfy beds, helpful staff, good areas to hang out but not the most social.


Overall nice, clean hostel. Pretty quiet atmosphere; but still met great people. Needs more showers and toilets though. Good location on the riverside, quick walk to night market and a plethora of lovely restaurants. Would stay again.


Very nice clean hostel, close to royal palace, night market and not far from central market and downtown. Easy to arrange buses on wards and staff are helpful. Room air con, nice clean rooms and bathroom facilities. (needs a door) When paying $7 a night in SE Asia though you'd probably expect a free breakfast though. I've paid less and had so. Even if just toast and butter/jam and instant coffee/tea. Then with option of paying for extras (ie egg, fruit, muesli, pancakes). Nice though.


Excellent and very friendly owner/manager. Very friendly, chilled & communal atmosphere. Not a party hostel. Would definitely return. Softer mattress would be nice


Great hostel the staff are amazing there so friendly and helpful. The location is great loads of places to eat and things to do. It's right next to the river and the weekend night market. As a girl traveling alone I felt very safe at this hostel I highly recommend it.


Good clean place, comfortable beds, nice $3 breakfast, great riverside location near bus stations and bars. Only one shower and toilet on my floor though (fourth) between 15 guests so may need to be patient.


You can't beat the location. It's close to the tourist bus stops, night market and river. The staff were friendly and professional. You can book all your PP day trips here too.


Booked a female dorm, got put in mixed. Ordered breakfast 30 minutes before we had to go to the killing fields and never received it - order toast if you're in a hurry. Good selection of dvds, however couldn't watch any as we weren't allowed the volume up high enough to hear over the noise from reception. Other than this very clean and nice restaurants close by.


Love the hostel! It is clean, the beds are nice and they have great staff. Breakfast is very good. Stayed in the Siem Reap one as well, almost the same en as good as Phnom Penh. If you are inside you forget you are being in Asia. Catch my flight from PP so going back in een few days, looking forward!


Lots to see and do in the area around the hostel, and a really helpful staff. Excellent all around place to stay.


The one stop hostels are all amazing, comfortable and safe including sihanoukville. This one is an easy walk to the serendipity party strip and the pool is a great way to escape the heat if you don't want to stay in the comfort of the aircon rooms. Possibly a little bit quiet as they don't play any music here. The extra dollar or two over the other hostels in town is well worth it believe me!


I want to booking at seam reap.. N mistaken book at phnom penh.. It would be great if the deposit can be transfer to the correct hostel so my money wont be burn 😔

One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. Clean and nicely equipped and nice looking. Only issue I had was arranging a bus as a staff member both forgot booking and taking my money for it and I had to talk him through calling and making sure I could still get a seat with 5 minutes to spare! They shouted me a tuk tuk to the station though so definitely tried to make up for it.
