Great location and you're the first on the boat but... the staff is terrible. Literally we went out and had drinks and they wanted us to turn off the music by 10:30 which we did. Then, we came back around 12:00 and say in the common area to talk (not loudly and I'm sure she will say otherwise) but the next morning she was incredibly rude to all of us. She's lazy, sleeps all day anyways, and was complaining that she couldn't sleep because of us. Book one night and get out of there!! (no wifi btw)

It's the Philippines and not Vietnam or Thailand. Great for the Philippines. Not a "10" on the Vietnam hostel scale. But a "10" on the Philippines.

good location by the airport. Manila sucks so this hostel helped us get out of there.

Another party hostel. Also they run the worlds most overpriced tours. Like actually the most overpriced tours and they try to pretend you can't do some things on your own when you obviously can (Mai Chau). Then they shove a tour down your throat. Beds had mold on the frames.

Hey Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we really appreciate the feedback. Its great that you enjoyed the atmosphere in the hostel and having a party with us. Its is a shame that you choose not to do any of our trips as you would have seen that they are not overpriced at all. We offer some very unique trips to places that it is possible to visit by yourself although the things we do in places such as Mai Chau are not possible to do. As all of our team have done our trips they recommend them as they want you to have the same awesome experience that they did. Safe travels and best regards, Alex Gelling General Manager VBH Original Hostel

Shoutout to the two British girls who were they. They made the place great. The owner is reckless. Literally we found him in our room changing a door without telling us(private room) and all our expensive stuff like camera and laptop were left in the room. You need to tell people when you go in their room. Insane.

Rooms (private) are smelly and seem like they're never cleaned. The guy who runs the bar where the pool table is, is so unfriendly and not helpful. He literally complained that we ask if he found a wallet we lost last night. Wow so much to ask. His music is also the worst in the entire world and he plays it on repeat every night.

I asked the guy to like clean the room when we got there early because we had just been up for over 24 hours. Is that too much to ask? It's a simple thing that really hurt our expensive. They wouldn't do it. Also, changing for parking... come on.

Overall an amazing hostel, nothing to complain about what so ever. every night there was a great event, the hostel was clean, people were amazing, seriously the best hostel to stay at in Budapest. The staff also were incredible, especially Sweats and Fables who were two of the nicest guys i've ever met not to mention how much fun they were to go out and party with.

Amazing hostel. Great location, clean rooms and nice beds. Most importantly the staff is incredible. Dave the manager is amazing and really cares about everyone staying there. Tiger Lilly (Silky) behind the bar along with all the other bartenders are amazing as well. This is definitely the place you want to stay in Kampot. I only planned for 3 nights and ended up staying 10 because it was so much fun.

THIS IS THE HOSTEL YOU WANT TO STAY AT. Best buckets on the island, amazing parties every night, if you're going to the full moon party and don't stay here you're doing it all wrong. Pok the bartender is amazing and will make sure you have a good time. David the owner is incredibly nice and helpful as well. Alex, Si, and Davin are all also so amazing and make sure that everyone is enjoying themselves! This is where you want to stay no question about it.
