    We booked the private twin room and it was perfect for our stay. Clean room and private bathroom, even had a small balcony. The rooftop is cool and a great chilled place for a drink. The hostel is in a perfect location for exploring Battambang, staff are friendly and booked our bus to Siem Reap for us. While you’re in Battambang do yourself a favour and book the Smoking Pot Cooking Class with Van, such a fun experience...there is a poster with information at the hostel reception.

    It is a nice hostel. It is clean and staff are very nice. My only issue is there is no toilet paper in the bathrooms. They say it is to help the environment but TP is a biodegradable and renewable. You can request toilet paper but it is humiliating because I have to explain that a water hose doesn't work for me. Maybe it is my diet or genetics but I lay massive gloopy dumps. A firehose can't peel it off my o-ring and I've tried!When I explained this people in the lobby laughed and I cried later.

    A clean, convenient space to stay and the rooftop bar is great! The 14 bed dorm was great with sectioned off beds, own power points, light and place to put things. Only issue was I went to go to bed on night 2 and someone else was there - I assume they double booked it. Luckily I hasn’t left anything on the bed. I was moved to another door room, this one was much louder and less private however.

    The staff are extremely friendly and the beds and facilities are great. I recommend staying here however do not recommend booking tours or buses through the hostel. I was extremely disappointed to see the price difference between the service provided by the hostel and elsewhere. For example, the bus to Bangkok at the bus station is $16 and at the hostel, $36!!! The bus to Sihanoukville at the bus station was $16 and at the hostel $26. Do your own research and book yourself from the bus station.

    Shout out to Sam as he was a brilliant reception with charm and humour. Rooftop bar is cool and the rooms are pretty nice. Only issues were with the Mozzies flying about in the rooms and felt a bit weird having no room key and only a small box for storing valuables and not fitting your bag in but that was Only the case on the bottom floor

    We had a fine stay here. It is a cool place, and great rooftop. The rooms are not bad. Only down fall was the 3 person dorm is a loft to a 5 person dorm. So in reality you are in an 8 person dorm. So their rooms are two actual private rooms. The rest are 8 + room dorm. Also, the bathrooms were kinda gross. Not horrible, but not great. Location adn noise was good and quiet.

    The Place was okay and the staff were all friendly and wanted to have a chat, some to learn more English. The hostel was pretty clean but could definitely do with a deep clean as around the beds/walls were pretty dirty. The security could be a bit better as my locker was just a removable box with a lock on it. There wasn’t a huge atmosphere when I was there, but you get a free drink on entry and the rooftop is lovely! The whole day tour is very good too.

    Bed bugs here do not stay!! Woke up with bed bugs on me and the bed was crawling in them. When we informed the staff, they were very aware of their bed bug infestation, offering only to switch beds. The next day they then checked new people into the beds with the bugs in. Please check reviews and beds before you stay the night. It ruined our time in Battambang. Also someone also staying in the hostel saw a mouse and the next day we saw mouse poo on the rooftop!

    We originally booked here for 3 nights but left after the first night. We paid extra for a 4 bed dorm room but was put in an 8 bed dorm room with our mattresses on the floor. Staff were really friendly. No atmosphere in the rooftop bar unfortunately and crawling with mossies. Woke up the next morning to find a dead cockroach next to my bed. No locks on any of the doors so not very safe either. Shame as the hostel is pretty.
