    Amazing staff. The three girls at the bar makes amazing cocktails and food. They also interact with everyone and gets everyone involved. Which is great when solo backpacking. The guy at the counter is really friendly and likes to joke around. He is also very helpful.

    Look, I'll be honest. The private double room is fab, the staff are lovely and the rooftop's cool but yes, they do have a bug problem! I read it on the reviews but thought 'it's backpackers, maybe I'll be lucky with the private room' but I heard multiple people complaining about bed bugs.. I do feel for them though, it's an tough problem to fix when there's always people in and out.

    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.

    Few restaurants around and the hostel has day tours, half day tours available for really cheap prices to see all that battambang has. Rooftop is a good place to meet people. Did have a bed bug problem when we were there but as soon as staff were told they moved us beds and were steaming and washing everything. Big lockers that fit big bags. Only 1 toilet in our room but was not a problem at all.. also more available on other floors anyway.

    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

    Lots of bed bug problems at this place that they’re in denial about/lied to people about. Luckily I didn’t get them but that’s because I was made sure I checked they’d cleaned my bed a few times. On my last night I found two and sprayed my bed with bug spray. They also removed all the curtains from the bed on the second night so everyone was woken up by the sunrise?! Their bus tickets are also very overpriced but the staff were friendly enough.

    BED BUGS Didn’t click on till it was on the bus leaving that it was bed bugs. There was a mosquito flying around my head all night so when I put my light on I seen a couple bugs on the sheet and the curtain then later next to my pillow. I just thought it was because the place was dirty and was just little bugs. I checked out early in the morn and was going to be late for my bus so just had to leave the key at reception. So angry had to get EVERYTHING washed. Covered in tiny bites

    The guy who checked me told me I was beautiful as I gave him my passport. Not ok, but I had to smile and say thank you. Also, there were bed bugs!! The hostel would not refund me my money but I left anyway. Others who stayed got bitten badly. My friend had 50+ bites! Highly encourage you to look elsewhere for accommodations in Battambang. This was not acceptable.
