Good facilities, friendly staff, good value for money.


I highly recommend you to stay at this hostel though my stay was not that nice all in all. When I first stepped outside the hostel I got bitten by the neighbours dogs. This was not the staff's fault. That day the neighbours forgot to lock the door...however, they immidiately moved the dogs so you don't have to worry about that at all. The staff was amazing. They always drove me to the hospital, gave me food, drinks, looked after me. I cannot imagine better support!

Staff speaks decent English and is very helpful and friendly. Room is kept neat and clean. The included breakfast is lovely. All in all, I had a comfortable stay here and would recommend this place to anyone.


A very friendly family like environment. I enjoyed the company of the staff and their kind hospitality every morning. It feels more like your staying in a house than just a guesthouse. Breakfast was free every morning and served very kindly. The room was comfortable and spacious. Only thing was I didn't have AC and it made it a bit difficult to sleep in the heat but I think you can book a room with AC, I just wasn't aware. The staff and can arrange just about you ever need.

Very nice staff and clean hostel. Too bad there were no other people and no room to have a beer.


If you want to experience all of the hospitality that Cambodia has to offer, stay here. The family that owns this place was wonderful and so accommodating. We took a midnight bus so we had quite a bit of time to kill and they let us hang out almost all day, shower in the evening in one of the extra rooms and called to double check our bus pick up without us even having to ask. All free of charge. The guest house is situated in a gated back neighborhood. We would definitely return.


The staff were extremely helpful.


nice and clean place to stay to get a break from dorms with AC! airport pick up is awesome.


Good service, friendly staff, good value for the money.
