    Can’t fault this place, the owner is enthusiastic and so helpful and the food is amazing. We stayed in the dorm on the top floor which had its own balcony which was a nice touch. Rooms were also very clean!

    Can’t not rate this hostel enough! All staff are happy to help with anything! One of the cleanest hostels we have stayed in! Sey one of the bar staff helped arrange a tour around the local cave, the secret lake and pepper plantation however the guide he arranged couldn’t make it so on his day off took us himself which I thought was lovely! And William behind the bar is just a character very funny! The food was lovely and massive portions!

    10 minute walk from bus station in town. Enjoyed the 'penthouse' with single beds; not bunks and balcony with sitting area. Fan only but nice breeze through open plan design and not too hot during my stay; I slept well. Combined toilet/shower room. Mosquito nets great. Very chilled atmosphere. Live music and movie night during stay. Utilised pool tables and mini golf with happy hour. Not a party hostel- guests respectful of others. Thanks to Srey- took us on a tour on his day off!

    I stayed 2 nights. The hostel is nice and the owner is very friendly and helpful. It’s a nice place to stay near the center. Just the mattress that was too thin for me otherwise a nice stay :)

    Decent hostel to stay at. There wasn’t much of an atmosphere to hangout. Most of the travels were north of 45 years old and traveling in small groups. Seemed like a lot of older local expats would visit and hangout with the owner. The owner was nice and accommodating. I’d recommend this place if you want to stay somewhere chill that’s a little bit away from the main center of town which is walking distance. Party hostel is next door if you fancy a drink in a more lively atmosphere.

    Good for a night or two in Kampot. The owner is a friendly American expat and the hostel i more suited for families and older people than young backpackers. Facilities are quite basic.

    Stayed in the penthouse - it was a nice open space and the bathroom was clean. The Sea Festival started while I was there and it was INCREDIBLY noisy late into the night. Not anything the staff could do about that although they did give all of the guests ear plugs. My biggest issue was that I felt the manager was a little rude and disrespectful with the Cambodian staff.

    The hostel is in a good location and the building is nice. The staff are all friendly. Notes: Our ‘private’ bathroom situated as a whole separate room across a hallway to our room was a bit odd, also I asked 3 different members of staff whether they played sport on the TV here (due to the large sign outside saying LIVE HD SPORTS) ... I got told no all 3 times, then I woke up to UFC being played on the TV the next morning which I felt quite offended by.
