Good price for what you get, good shower. Room was clean and nice that there was a balcony.


Great place, kind staff, very clean room. A few restaurants near by (the best we found is Asian Spice around the corner).


Really good value for money, cheap price but really cute and clean room. Nice furniture, comfy bed and even little balcony. Only thing I missed was toilet paper. Fridge would be a nice bonus.


We found it hard to find a good quality value place to stay in PP. Star wood was ok. There were some ant problems but easily solved with some bug spray. For some reason they don't clean under the beds which leaves some scary residue but just don't look? Otherwise it is a value place in an ok location. If arriving on Capitol buses just walk to the guesthouse. We stayed there again when we came back to PP so I have to recommend it.


Everything was okay, we opted for a fan room because we were being cheap but I wouldn't recommend it. The fan is not mounted on the wall so it takes up literally the only space you have to walk. Toilet seat was broken but they fixed it on request. Had a hard time sleeping at night the noise from the locals living beside the guesthouse always sounded like it was right outside our window/balcony.. Which it kind of was


Great place for the price! They rent bicycles for 1 dollar a day. Best way to know this flat city!


really welcoming staff, surprisingly quiet, convenient location. feel like i got a great deal.


Very nice place to stay,the room and bathroom are really nice and clean.still a bit far from the town center but its fine with tuktuk


Out side of room was quite noisy and smelly. Also, there are so many tiny aunts in my room even after cleaning.


Quite far away from the main tourist area (though it is close to the Genocide Museum) and they dont serve any type of food, which, when everything is a distance away is kind of annoying. For 5$ a night though, it's not a bad place to stay if you are trying to save money.


Not a great location for unless you get a tuktuk everyday. Good shower and 24hr security.

The only comment I have to make has to do with the lack of top sheet or blanket to cover the entire double bed. One twin sheet for a double bed just isn't enough. Otherwise, this place was great. We arrived way before check-in time and they worked to get the room ready immediately.


Nice and clean hostel. Not direkt in the middle of the center, but the value for money is excellent.

Really enjoyed our stay here, staff were so friendly and helpful, helped us organise bus tickets and our Vietnamese visa as well. Rooms are clean and tidy, the showers had hot water and good water pressure. Close to the Tuol Sleng museum, but you might need to catch a tuk tuk to get to the centre of town. Lots of food places around, we never had any trouble finding somewhere to eat. If ever in Phnom Penh again would definitely come back here!!


Very friendly helpful staff, great value for money out of the main tourist strip.
