Great hostel. Very social, but not one of those crazy party hostels where you can't find any peace. Sit in the hammock and read, or go for an epic all day hike over the mountains. Staff are super friendly and helpful - will give you info on the different hikes etc. to do in the area. The village doesn't have much to it, except a couple of restaurants and small hotels.

The lady who works here is very friendly, and helpful with looking up bus/train information and giving info about the local area etc. The breakfast is worth the 5 Euro - it was great. Scrambled eggs, french toast, sausages, breads, spreads, hams, cheese, yoghurt etc etc.

Beautiful location! Amazing views every way you look. A little bit further from town than I expected - it's actually kind of nice, as it's a very peaceful place. Could be a struggle if you have a lot of luggage though. No lockers in the rooms, just shelves to put your things on. WiFi worked well in the common areas, but did not work in the room.

Comfortable bed, big lockers in room and WiFi works in the room - lots of drop outs though, so not really reliable. Breakfast was amazing - everything you could want... Sausages, eggs, cereal, toast, fruits, salad... And more

I would have left this hostel after the first night, except I'd paid for 4 nights on arrival. No lockers or anywhere secure to put belongings. Refused to register my visa. 1 shower and 1 toilet for the whole hostel. Noise all night, guests, staff and the constant doorbell as nobody is allowed keys.

Good, clean hostel with friendly staff. It's huge! Don't think I've ever seen such a big hostel, but didn't feel overly busy all the time. Good bar, but very over priced for drinks. Wifi works everywhere. It's a green building, so doesn't have aircon, instead has an economic ventilation system. It felt a bit warm for my liking, but not too bad.

Possibly the best hostel I've stayed in! Great atmosphere, and the staff are awesome people, and great to chill out with over a few drinks on the brilliant roof terrace - complete with hammock. WiFi works everywhere in the hostel, plenty of power sockets in the rooms and common areas. Fully equipped kitchen, breakfast included. Some cool activities to get involved in if you're interested as well. Booked two nights, but ended up staying 6 - just wish I could stay longer! :)

A great hostel in a great area, close to everything. Good lockers under the beds, cool common area that even had a live band playing on Friday night. Couldn't access all the power sockets in the room as the bed was in the way which was annoying, but apart from that loved my time there.

My bed made loud noises whenever I moved, which made it hard to get a decent night's sleep. Lockers in rooms, but too small to get my pack in, but could get valuables locked away at least. Staff were friendly, good common area and kitchen. Very close to the centre of town and easy to get to.

Main thing this hostel is missing is lockers in the rooms! They have safes, but most didnt seem to work, and they're not even big enough to fit a laptop in anyway. Apart from that, a good hostel.

A great hostel! Clean, secure, lockers, WiFi works in the bedrooms. Walking tours and pub crawls are great, I highly recommend them - enjoyable and great value for money. If I'm back in Malaga, I will definitely stay at this hostel again :)

A good hostel, very central - next to main train station and airport buses. I was in a 10 bed dorm which had its own bathroom that was cleaned daily. Security cages under the bed which were great. Friendly staff, a bar with great food downstairs, entertainment every night - but the noise did not carry up to my dorm.

A really nice hostel, friendly staff and two big common areas - one more of a dining room and one is more of a lounge room. Clothes washer AND dryer which was really useful since I was only there for 1 night and had a pack full of dirty clothes. The lady on reception was kind enough to help with the washing - kept an eye on it and moved it from the washer to dryer when it was ready, and I just picked it up later.

Noisiest hostel in the world. Do not stay here if you want to sleep! Poorly designed with heaps of loud banging doors through corridors and wooden floors and stairs making every footstep echo through the building. On top of that, people running, yelling and slamming doors right through the night and staff not stopping them. No lockers in the rooms, no food or drink allowed in the rooms, bathroom freezing cold and not clean. Nice common area / tv room and very nice breakfast though

Very friendly staff who are VERY eager to please. We were in a room on the floor above reception and the WiFi didnt reach up there, but some rooms would have it. AirCon was great, bar fridge in our room, and a basic breakfast each morning was included. Shower didnt drain properly, and bathroom was small, but apart from that a great place - close to Termini station, Metro out the front and not too far walk to the centre of town either.

This hostel has some great potential, but is in need of a bit of work as it rough around the edges. Staff are friendly and helpful, picked us up from the bus stop for free and dropped us to ferry terminal for 50 kuna Easy walk to the centre old town in about 15 mins downhill, walk back up the hill is a killer, but only 70 kuna for a taxi. AMAZING views of the ocean from our room - the advantage to being at the top of the hill

The room was double booked and she was not there to meet us. No reception, so had to call her to find out what was going on. She insisted we were due to arrive the next day, even though I had a confirmation email showing the dates I booked. We had to find somewhere else to stay for the first night, then moved here the next night for 2 nights. She charged us two nights full accommodation, and later I remembered that I'd already paid a $30 deposit. She hasnt responded to my email regarding this.

Difficult to find as it's not a well known place, and is on a small street. Very close to the main "pigeon square" - only a few metres away. Very friendly and helpful staff. WiFi didnt work well in our room, but was fine in the common area. Ended up staying here again a few days later for an additional night as we had a stop over between buses.

This place is like a resort for those you can't / don't want to spend that much! The room is basic, cold shower, no tv etc - but the rest makes up for it! Right on the river/lake... I woke up to see sunrise over the forest and water without even having to get out of bed. Decent breakfast there, drinks in their open air common area. I really enjoyed and would return.

Booked a double room, but when we got there they said they were painting that room so had to put us in a dorm. When I said it was unacceptable they took us to another hotel a few doors down that they said had the same owner. They also didn't have a double available, but had a 4 bed dorm that they gave to just me and my partner. Staff had very little English and struggled to book a bus for me, even though everywhere else I stayed in Cambodia had no issues with this.

I would definitley stay at Vy Khanh Hostel again. Vy is lovely, and very informative - she gave us a map and talked us through the highlights of the city on our first day. The room was clean and comfortable, with cheap mini bar and good aircon. We organised a 2 day bus & boat trip from Saigon to Phnom Penh via the Mekong River with Vy's healp and it was an awesome trip that I recommend!
