I stayed twice here as I was happy with my first stay so returned at the end of my Cambodian trip. Pods are spacious, almost double bed size with huge lockers. Individual fans and charging station in the pods. Well staffed, hot showers, good food and large lounge with pool all for $7 a night... great value! They could use...

A little bit on the expensive side but no complaints about the hostel. Private room was clean if unspectacular. Social area, pool and restaurant are all very good. Be aware that hostel is quite far from most tourist hangouts but the other guests were awesome when we were there so all good

Had an absolutely lovely time here. The room was clean with air con. Fantastic communal area, good vibes and food...and cheap drinks. Staff are friendly helpful and attentive. I had a lovely Christmas away from home here and felt like I spent it with a new family. A little further away from other places to eat and drink but like...

The hotel services like laundry, tours and even bottle of water is very expensive you can find everything on the street nearby in a...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Because of my birthday we booked a superior room ($28), quite more expensive than we spent before in similar guesthouses in Cambodia, but I don't think it is great value for money. The room was clean and the beds are good, but for the rest it is very basic compare to other places we...

Relaxed vibes and very friendly staff. They went above and beyond to help us get a taxi up to Kratie late in the afternoon. Decent food and cheap beer. Very reasonably priced. They also organised our tuk tuk to the killing fields and genocide museum very easily. Sam our friendly tuk tuk driver was great too.

Stayed here on two occasions in the last week, either side of a trip to Sihanoukville. I can't speak highly enough of the management, room quality and vibe. Firstly the building is really cool, it feels like an old style hotel that has been converted to a hostel but retained the old world charm. My partner and I stayed in...

Good vibes around the bar with plenty of social backpackers to hang out with. Food is decent. Also nice that they have a pool. I stayed in a pod room with my partner which was good. Good air con, hot showers with good water pressure. Place is kept very clean and tidy. Very efficient at the front desk. Would recommend...

I cannot understand why this hostel isn't higher rated - the pool / bar area is a great space to socialise and the staff are really helpful and friendly. Stay in the pod rooms, gives you a private space to chill out.
