Other guest houses pay tuk tuk drivers a commission to take you to their hotel, usually because they are far away out of town. Tuk tuk drivers often give out false information to try and convince travellers to stay somewhere else, for example they may say that this hostel is full. They may also try and claim that there is a second Siem Reap Hostel. There is only ONE Siem Reap Hostel. We offer a FREE pick up service, please contact us with your arrival details by bus, boat or plane and we will have free transport ready and waiting for you at any time of the day or night. Once you have booked just look out for the sign with your name on it!
And you can check our pics on this website so you know what we look like.

Things to note:

We accept group bookings of up to 8 pax. We reserve the right to cancel any multiple bookings of groups larger than this number without notice.

As much as we'd love to, we do not accept bookings for children under the age of 7. Our pool is not fenced and unsupervised. Additional bedding can supplied for triple rooms on enquiry.

    Fantastic hostel. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food is great and the bar is a good place to meet new friends. The tour desk is also incredibly helpful, and reasonably priced. I'll be staying here every time I come back to siem reap.
