The Mad Monkey

Phnom Penh, Cambodia
89%

Nice bar and restaurant, pub crawls and other activities arranged. Good wifi. Lovely staff. Got my Vietnam visa in 24h here. Spacious, clean dorm with big lockers. Could feel every spring in my mattress, very uncomfortable! Not the place for a peacuful night's sleep as constantly drunk people coming in and out of the room making a lot of noise.

Lovely Jubbly Villa

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

The girls on reception are so lovely and bubbly! All of the staff are very nice and helpful. The tuk tuk driver I booked through the hostel (Rocky I think his name was) was a bit too friendly and kept touching my shoulders and arms, but he took the hint after I dodged away a few times! The bathroom in room 101 takes hours to drain after a shower, even after the staff tried to fix it. Good wifi, nice pool area, also a nice chillout area with a TV. Would definitely recommend this place.

Great place to stay, friendly and helpful staff. The tuk tuk drivers that work with the hostel are lovely. Nice to be able to use the cycles for free but the seats are very hard so probably best to use for short trips not all day cycling around Angkor!

Centerpoint Hostel

Very basic hostel. There is aircon that is meant to be on overnight but it wasn't even on for most of the night. The security is really bad, you can't lock the dorm, a guy who wasn't even staying in the hostel followed me into my dorm after a night out. Lockers big enough for your valuables available in reception. Overall it's fine for the price you pay.

Really basic facilities, it's pretty backwards not to have wifi in this day and age. But it's an amazing party hostel, great atmosphere, you get to know everyone and the staff are awesome! So handy to be right on the party beach too. The buckets and breakfast are only free if you stay in a private room. Breakfast is just toast but there wasn't any bread a lot of the time.

Dear Guest, The day you came we had genuine issue with our internet. Both the service providers had issues and hence the internet was erratic. I am happy to report that it is resolved now. Hope you will have a better experience next time. Regards Harish

Quite possibly the best hostel in the world! Really social atmosphere, nice communal spaces, you get to know everyone else that is staying there. They have all kinds of free tours and activities every day. The staff are very helpful. They even have facilities for you to do your own laundry on the roof or you can use the washing machine.

The Sun Resort

Very attentive and friendly staff. They helped me with everything and arranged my safaris for me so I didn't have to wait in the queue. There's no internet access but they took me to an internet cafe where I used the internet for free. One member of staff even came with me to the train station as my ticket was still waitlisted to make sure I got on the train safely - even got me a packed lunch as well! I felt more like I was staying with my family than at a hotel. Highly recommend this place!

Beautifully decorated hotel. Fantastic staff - very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend the camel safari - it was really good fun, they go to beautiful sand dunes and provide everything that you need. Amazing social atmosphere. The rooftop terrace and restaurant is great, everyone hangs out there most of the time and you really get to know everyone that stays at the hotel. The pigeons love it too though and there is a slight risk of getting pooped on :(

This is how a backpackers hostel should be! Very social, friendly atmosphere. Lovely common area where everyone eats breakfast together and chills out in the evening. The staff are excellent, so helpful - I really appreciated one of them walking with me to the main road to get a rickshaw for a fair price when I checked out. Good wifi. A bit far from the sights but you can get a cheap bus to town/amber fort.

Hotel The Spot

Exceptional customer service from the reception and travel desk. Very clean hostel. Good wifi in the room and lobby. The location, Paharganj, is the big backpacker spot but the area is overwhelming - lots of people bothering you when you're walking around. Very close to New Delhi train station. Didn't seem to be any hot water, but the weather is so hot in Delhi you don't need it.

Weird atmosphere, full of old men, not really a fun place to be. Really disorganised when I arrived, they didn't know which room I was booked into and how much I needed to pay. The girls working there are really sweet though. Although they used our dorm as an office/living space which was pretty weird.

Rolando is seriously creepy and inappropriate, he spent the whole time hitting on me and asking inappropriate questions, he needs to learn to be more professional! So wouldn't recommend this place to girls travelling alone! Great location, close to the train station and the city sights. Free wifi and free breakfast. No cooking facilities in the kitchen, no laundry facilities.

This is the best hostel I've ever stayed in in terms of atmosphere and meeting people. The staff are very friendly and every night they cook pasta or provide free cocktails - it gets everyone into the common area and mixing with each other. There's always a bunch of people going out each night. At midnight they clear the common area and switch off the music so it's no problem getting to sleep. There's no keys for the rooms and only 3 lockers in a 6 bed dorm.

Very close to the train station but didn't have any problems with noise. Nice English speaking staff. Good free wifi. Large common areas. No toaster in the kitchen! You get kicked out from about 10am-4pm so they can clean which is a bit ridiculous but seems to be the done thing in Italy - I don't see why it's needed when the rest of the world manages to clean their hostels without any lockout period.
