Property Description

1stly, check the no. of reviews! the awards! Welcome to the grand ol’ Mamma of Hostels in Siem Reap - the original luxury budget accom provider with unmatched facilities & experience in SEA!

The first registered backpackers in Cambodia and the first to offer budget luxury style dorms and private rooms. Immaculately maintained and socially responsible. The perfect balance between style and affordability, chill and fun, all while offering opportunity for cultural insights and a break from the rigours of travel in SEA.

No hidden costs and fairly priced. We offer more - more to our guests and staff alike and as experienced travellers ourselves, we don’t think you’ll find better bang for your buck ANYWHERE! If you do, BRING THEM TO US!!!

Owned and run by Australian and Cambodian Nationals, The Siem Reap Hostel was purpose designed and built from the ground up to provide top shelf backpacker accommodation for a range of budgets - all while ensuring our staff are amoung the best trained and salaried in the country. We offer the poorest kids from rural villages the opportunity of a career in hospitality - while still studying, if need be. We’re here for you. We’re here for them – and they love it! So do we!

While we are not an industrial party style hostel, we have a lively poolside bar and restaurant and plenty of common areas making it easy to socialise and meet other travellers, or get away from it all and enjoy peace and quiet, overlooking the beautiful grounds of the Wat Dam Nak temple.

Only five minute‘s walk from the Old Market and the action of Pub Street. We have all the trimmings like free, lightning fast WiFi, air conditioning, strong hot showers, beautiful clean rooms, private balcony and separate, ensuite bathroom and shower in our deluxe dorms and private rooms…A bar, restaurant, cinema, yoga room with daily classes, chill spaces, pool table… friendly (well paid) local staff and western mgmt to cater for your every need.

We’ve been here the longest and to indulge in just a little trumpet blowing, we think our slew of awards shows again and again we know how to do it right.

Latest Review

" An excellent hostel in a FAB location, with superb facilities, including a swimming pool, a pool table, and an excellent bar/restaurant. The staff are so friendly and helpful and made this like a home from home. It is superb value for money as well and I would happily have paid 50% more for my accommodation but I understand that competition in the area makes this difficult. I cannot recommend this establishment highly enough - easily the best hostel in Siem Reap, possibly all of Asia! Thank you. "
