    Great venue. The staff are all very friendly and Driess gave me some great tips for Angkor that served me well. If you like the 'Pub Street / Party Hostel' scene, this may not be for you, but if you like socialising with great people and listening to chill music by the indoor pool, then it might just be. I had a fantastic three days in Siem Reap, thanks to the Siem Reap Hostel and their Tuk-Tuk drivers.

    Great hostel - the airport pick up is a huge benefit, I emailed at 10pm the night before when arriving at 7.30am and they managed to have someone there for us!! (Note- I wouldn't recommend leaving it this late, not guaranteed!) The rooms are clean - only concern is the periliously high bunk beds if you are the top bunk! Fab happy hour and pool is perfect to cool off in and mess around in - with beach balls and floating reindeer :D

    Great little hostel in an excellent location. A stones throw from Pub Street, the Made in Cambodia market and a plethora of restaraunts. They have a huge range of tours they can offer including Angkor Wat. The bar and restaraunt was great, buffet breakfast was ample for myself. The pool area was very chilled. The room I had booked was huge and airy with a clean bathroom. Beds were comfortable.

    A really nice hostel run by lovely people. The pool is good fun and the bar is well priced. Location wise it’s pretty good with pub street less than a ten minute walk away! We had a few issues with our room when we stayed but staff rectified it quickly and professionally with no argument, showing how professional they are. Remember it is low season at the moment and this is shown in the atmosphere, but make the most of the people around and you’ll have a great time
