Nice atmosphere, great staff - helped me when we found a rat in my locker because i forgot the rest om my mango in my bag. Toilet always had very wet floors, and you had to pay for the toiletpaper.
Staff is too stoned to be able to be organized...no coffee in the morning since everyone is still asleep after long drunken nights, bathrooms are not been cleaned, bus tickets not been found although already paid for, wrong food served (or quite different from menu) but asked to pay price like on menu...
Hostel had a great chill space and staff was very nice. Our room was good and cozy. The bathrooms were always soaking wet and you had to buy toilet paper. Food looked really good but was a little over priced for us but everyone who ate it said it was amazing:) WOuld recommend this place to others.
Great place to stay, awesome atmosphere and lovely staff.
an excellent chilling beach style hostel set just off the beautiful otres beach away from the crowds and the hassle of serendipity. great food and service from todd, aran, freida and all the wish you were here team, good music and a nice bar common area with a great atmosphere, a big thanks guys, a definite book!!
The place was pretty cool and overall I would recommend it to anyone on Otres beach. The food is overpriced - definitely cheaper places on the beach to grab a meal. The staff was a bit out of it sometimes and you had to pay for toilet paper which seemed a bit cheap. No bed bugs though!
we had a wonderful stay, thanks to the entire stay at WYWH Guesthouse,it was lovely with you guys. Its quite a ride to the town itself but if you"re booking a guesthouse at OtresBeach you should know about that, the location there itself is awesome, right at the beach! Definitely recommended, except that there were a few cases of bedbugs, me included...but I can live with that
The vibe was soooo chill. It's the zen side of Sihanoukville. It's a stone's throw from the beach and serves the best food. Make sure you try the veggie burger. It's not fake meat, but real veggies.
We were not very impressed with this hostel. Be aware as the bed I was in had BED BUGS. I saw a few crawling in my bed when I was going to sleep but did not realise what they were. I then woke ip covered in bites and realised. I have subsequently thrown a lot of my things away as they have now infested my backpack and travel pillow. I'm not really fussy when it comes to hostels but I would really warn people away until they sort this problem out.!!

We had a very chilled out stay here away from the main tourist beach in Sihanoukville. Otres Beach is an absolute treasure. Very friendly and helpful staff at WYWH, and a comfortable and relaxed hostel to recover from your sunburn in! The full dinklam breakfast is amazing for any Brit missing home food.
We LOVED our stay at WYWH last August, we even stayed 2 additional nights. Most of all the staff is really nice!
They didn't get my booking but still were very accommodating. Very nice staff and pretty decent food (the best mango shakes ever). Not on the beach but a 30 second walk from it. Lots of chairs, papason chairs, swinging chars, etc. I wish the dorm had a bit more light,everyone was constantly using torches even during the day to see inside their cubby holes. Good place but you can find cheaper/better value. Recommend the happy hour (6-9 PM), 50 cent beers and chill, friendly atmosphere
Great location and bar area is a good spot to meet people. Love the the food and the hanging chairs.

I made a booking through hostelworld and usually I never ever have any problem. They always have my name upon check in. However, this place was different. They claimed they do not have my name and the place were FULL. I would not stay here again after the experience. In their defence, they said that their system is not connected to hostelworld which was puzzling. Why would you advertise yourself if your booking system is not up to scratch. Totally pathetic.
Great place to just chill out and smoke a few happy herbs! ;D
Nice place to chill out! Great atmosphere and staff!! Board games and movie room are good ways to relax also. The common bathroom could be cleaner but I have seen worse. Location is perfect at Otres beach which is about 5km from "center" but the vibe is totelly different! At the moment Otres have less people and you can enjoy beautiful beach & sea without "crazy party". Wish you were here & Otres beach were the best places during our Asia tour!
Loved this place. Private rooms are quirky grass huts in a nice setting. Really chilled bar with egg and satellite chairs and sofas for relaxing all day. Bar food is really good. Staff really well travelled, helpful and friendly. Can't see the beach from it due to buildings in front but 10 metres to walk to it!
Had a great time at wish you were here on otres beach. Cold showers but refreshing as its so hot. Only thing is they like you to keep a tab for food and drinks which meant i probably spent abit more as i didnt keep track of my spending but was worth it :)
This hostel had a very relaxed atmosphere. The staff was helpful but sometimes acted like they didn't care. The rooms are very simple and rustic. The bathrooms are all separate and never have toilet paper. There is a movie room that had bedbugs when I stayed there. It's a nice place to hang out, but all the places on Otres sacrifice cleanliness for proximity to the beach.
This is a tricky one - good vibe and nice hanging out area, the bar's good. The food's good. I thought my private room was overpriced for what is essentially a shack with a mosquito net. The outside toilet area is also smelly and not very nice to shower in. Plus the staff come across as quite self-involved -one of them made me wait in a tuk tuk for 45 mins on my way to the bus station (when they told me what time to be ready for!) because he hadn't got up in time. I think lots have fun here tho.
