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...

Overall condition of rooms, bathroom was poor and unclean. The hot shower in the F-girl room kept tripping the switch and my friend had to stand in the hallway to keep turning it back on so I could have a some hot water. It happened so many times, we just gave up and had cold showers instead. It's also more...

We visited Downtown Siem Reap hostel in September and were less than impressed. We were 'welcomed' by one of the British owners who simply seemed to lack any people skills whatsoever. Any time we asked for advice or made suggestions on what to do his response was always a negative one. We were not alone in thinking this - when...

Hi Shaun I do apologise for your 'below average', if you would mind giving us the dates you were here we can gain a better understanding of what was happening at the time. unlike mad monkey we are a small hostel and do not charge anywhere near the same rates as them, so for $4-5 per night we are unable...

If you're between the age of 18-20 and you're only traveling to get drunk and hook up with people, then this place is for you. They're playing loud music all day and night - it's such a pain to listen to. The staff have no respect for the other guests who are not into partying 24/7. In fact they'll hardly...

Had the best stay at Downtown. The bar is great, food is good (PIZZA!) en the people amazing. The room was clean, beds are good and the fan is strong enough to keep you comfy.

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
