Wonderful owner and staff, nice, kind, and welcoming. VEry helpful with arranging tours of the temples but not pushy. They arranged a sunrise tour for me and made me a sandwich and put it in the soda fridge for me! It is a but far from the bar scene, but is an 15 minute walk or $1-2 tuk tuk ride. More of a hotel scene, good AC, good wifi, great experience overall.


Great stay! Very centrally located and a total family feel. Extremely secure and by far the best place that I've stayed!


The staff was wonderful, and extremely helpful in arranging tours, trips, etc. The rooms' air conditioning and cleanliness weren't amazing, but good for a hostel at this price point, and the included breakfast was amazing. I'd definitely recommend this hostel to other young travelers!


Great hostel, the staff are lovely and can't help you enough. They are polite and always spend time to ask how you are.It's in a great location and it's great that they collect you from the bus station when you arrive, as we were delayed on the bus by 3 hrs, our driver was still waiting for us. The breakfast is good and also the wifi I would definitely come back here, I loved it

Most welcoming place I've stayed - treated with service you'd expect of a five star hotel. Both Mr. So and his wife were extremely helpful in giving advice about what to see and do in Siem Reap and elsewhere in Cambodia. Booked Angkor Wat tour and got a great deal through them! Rooms are clean, beds are very comfortable and the free bottled water is great! If you want a comfortable and fun stay in Siem Reap - look no further.

This a beautiful old building with marble floors, a grand staircase in the lobby, and ornately carved solid wood doors. That said, it doesn't feel like the cleanest place. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Several of the staff, though friendly, don't speak very good english making it a little tough to arrange for tours except when the Mr. or Mrs. are there. Great breakfast options, way beyond just toast. Wifi is pretty slow.
