For those wanting to leave a contribution to those working to improve the lives and educational prospects of Cambodian children, this is the place to stay. As well, it is very well run, staff are friendly and helpful, it's close to town, affordable, tidy and comfortable!

Great little guest house with simple rooms but all you need- very clean and we had a lovely balcony that we could use to sit out etc. The guest house has a roof top with books, games and a hang out space.
