I've stayed in many hostels in PP over the years and this is my favourite. I booked it mainly for the pool but when I arrived I also found it to be a great place to stay. Good dorms, good bar and food, friendly atmosphere good value and very friendly and helpful staff.
In over of 12 year of living and travelling in SE Asia this is by far the worst guest house I have ever visited. I would strongly recommend that you do not ever make a booking here. The behaviour of the staff and, in particular, the owner/manager was an absolute disgrace. I was shocked and appalled by the way they treated customers. As a result of this disgraceful guesthouse I lost the money I had already paid for the accommodation and had to find an alternative. I left feeling insulted.
I would definitely recommend this guesthouse. Good clean and comfortable rooms. Very friendly staff. Great location close to the action but not loud or busy. Great value.
Pretty good hostel all round. Would stay again. This place has all the things you would expect from a guesthouse and is clean and comfortable without being spectacular. The only small suggestion I would make was that the lockers were all on the floor below. It would have been nice if they were in the dorm for easier access.
Good rooms, good location, very good value. This place is a very good budget guesthouse. Nothing fancy but has everything you need at a good price. I'd definitely stay again.
The best place I've stayed in Phnom Penh.
Excellent guesthouse. One of the best I've stayed in. Clean, comfortable rooms, good bar, great food, good atmosphere and the swimming pool is a real bonus. Good location too. Just a couple of mins walk from the main area of bars, restaurants, markets, etc.

Excellent location close to Khao San Rd but far enough away to be quiet. Very good value for an aircon dorm. Good no frills budget accommodation. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. The place could be a little more organised though.
Very friendly owners. Good comfortable, clean accommodation. Excellent value and a good location not too far from the main bars and restaurants but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. The only thing I can think of to improve the place would be curtains in the dorms to keep out the sunlight early in the morning. I would stay again.
I've stayed at several hostels in Phnom Penh and this is the best one in my opinion. There are other cheaper options but at this place everything is to a high standard and done just right. The staff are excellent too.
One of the nicest guesthouses I've stayed at. Everything is done to a high standard. Spotlessly clean, wifi throughout. A comfortable place to stay with bar and restaurant areas which are good places to hang out and make friends. On the whole the staff were excellent too, very friendly and helpful. The only negative was that the restaurant was expensive by Cambodian standards. As the hostel is in an upmarket area of town, many of the surrounding bars/restaurants were also a bit pricey.
Good, clean, comfortable hostel would be happy to stay there again. My only minor reservations were that the 4 bed dorm was quite cramped and the bar/restaurant a little expensive.
Nice clean dorms. Comfortable beds. Wifi throughout the accommodation and bar. The main negative was that the dorms were extremely hot. One slow ceiling fan which had little effect. I upgraded to the aircon dorm but even this was hot.
Absolutely amazing place to stay. Awesome quiet private beach during the day along the whole length of the island. Resaurant and bar with great atmosphere at night. Chilled some nights, partying on others. Really friendly sociable place, great for meeting people. I wish I could have stayed forever.
This hostel lies about its location. On map view on Hostelworld, the pin is right in the centre of town. The actual address of Venezia Gardens is no where near. It's actually about 3.5Km from the map location so took an hour to walk there with heavy bags. Avoid if you want to stay in the centre near Maliboro Street, T he place itself was decent enough with clean, comfortable dorms. However, at $10 for a dorm not great value. For that money you can get you a private room in a good location.
Very clean, comfortable, well run. In theory an ideal hostel. It's a huge place with 300+ beds but somehow lacked any charachter or soul. It was also about 10-15 mins walk from the main tourist area, bars, restaurants, etc. For a dorm the price seemed a little high as private rooms can be found at about the same cost. High marks for the accommodation itself but location, atmosphere and value could be better.
