The private rooms were disgusting. I felt dirtier after showering. The staff weren't friendly. I slept on the public couches because they were cleaner than my private room. Some girl who worked there spent the entire time screaming at everyone. Stay away from spirits, they're ethonal. Especially the free ones.

Erin, We're sorry to hear your stay with us in Siem Reap did not live up to your expectations! Did you notify staff of the issues you've mentioned while you were here? We didn't receive any complaints which match your descriptions and as such it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly which room you are referring to. If you had...

Mad monkeys isn't your ordinary hostel. It is a hostel that cares for the local community. It has a great price/quality ratio. Activities are being held by the awesome staff of mad monkeys. It has a nice pool and a lovely sun terrace. And it has the most exquisite food you'll ever have in South East Asia. I'd especially would...

Like Ronseal, it does exactly what it says on the tin. Its selling point is that it is a great spot for socialising and meeting other travellers. It has good facilities: a pool with a bar next to it, a sundeck area, another rooftop bar, private and dorm rooms and helpful staff. It's noisy (until 23:30) but that's what you're...

Clean, really good food, cheap drinks and amazing vibe and experience overall. Highly recommend. The pool is also great and always super clean. Although this is a party hostel, it is easy to sleep at night without being disturbed and its only a few minutes walk away from the main party street.

Totally over priced for the rooms you get. You are 100% paying to stay where the party is. Out of a large group of friends, 4 air conditioned rooms didn't work. Showers smelled metallic? And stayed wet the entire trip. If you aren't into partying 24/7 there aren't really any decent chill areas (beanbags by pool taken up by people...

We stayed for one night and the hostel had a good atmosphere and a nice rooftop bar. We stayed at a double room and it was terrible! The AC didnt work, the lights didnt work and the bathroom was really old and stinky. Even the water tasted like metal and the bathroom had no ventilation.

I slept in 4 female dorms for 8/9$ per night. They have a pool. The rooms are good, an amazing huge bed! Wifi didn't work so good. Be aware that you hear the noise from the pool and bar until midnight. Great rooftop, drinks and games. I recommend it if you are looking for meeting new friends! And it's 5...
