I was recommended this hostel by a fellow traveler. This place is fantastic. Great staff, beach bar, and pool. Not loud after midnight unlike other hostels. The food here is also amazing. Their Thai red curry is now my favorite. If I am ever back in Siem Reap I will stay here again.

The pool is amazing the drinks that flow are cold and the food is amazing. Best Amok...

Although i did not fully enjoy my time at Downtown Siem Reap Hostel, i dont blame it on the hostel or the staff. The staff here are for the most part very friendly and very willing to help out whenever they can, although can sometimes show favouritism to the huge party goers. The rooms were clean but there were constant...

Some of the worlds friendliest guys run the place, and they are really good about helping figure out activities and arrangements. The rooms were clean and reasonable. It is a LOUD place at night, but they are good about shutting up at 11pm. Biggest complaint was the tab system. They will take your passport and make you run a tab...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Clean rooms, secure property, reliable and trustworthy service- that is our guarantee. Downtown Siem Reap Hostel is a hostel with high standards, but with Backpacker and Flashpacker prices. Staffed by a mix of Western and Khmer staff, our success is driven by and primarily due only to the sheer dedication of the Khmer staff employed here. They speak excellent English, serve with a smile, and are here to make your stay as comfortable as possible. British owned and managed, and established in February 2011, Downtown Siem Reap Hostel has become one of the most popular hostels in Siem Reap, and now with a newly built swimming pool, bamboo gardens, and extra rooms, we are able to accommodate and serve 70 guests per night. Our kitchen is open from 7.00am serving a mixture of food from a cheap Backpacker Menu with all eats under $2.50, through Thai and Khmer food and Western favourites - something for all budgets. Our breakfasts have always been a big hit, with set-breakfasts including tea/coffee and juice from $2.50. Our accommodation includes 6 and 8 bed AC dorms, 4 person AC dorms with ensuite bathrooms, fan and AC ensuite twin and ensuite double rooms and a recently completed dorm boasting 2 ensuite bathrooms and floor to ceiling privacy glass walls. Please be aware that there will be a 10% Vat on your final bill. ... more   less
