This hostel has everything you could want - kind staff, props to Chloe & Sreynut, a sweet pool, good food & drinks and quiet private rooms with great AC & Fans. We would definitely stay again. The location is also a plus as they have tuk-tuks on call & are walking distance to more sights in Phnom Pen. Can't fault...

Fantastic place. Quite enjoyed it. But PLEASE upgrade your internet. The wifi didn't work for us in one of the rooms, was patchy in most other areas, and having to log in to the wifi every time it was used was super annoying. For a traveller like me who earns money via the internet, not being able to do my...

We were out and about a lot as this was the first visit to PP for most of the team. As always, staff were very welcoming and...

Wat Phnom aside there isn't much around, other than posh residences and the Us embassy. As such, I wouldn't recommend it for those budgeting a very short stay in Phnom Penh. Inside the budget a/c room...

I was at this hostel several times throughout two months in Cambodia. The Khmer staff (esp. Bora, Chendal and Mamith) were so helpful and upbeat, and really help you absorb the shock of the bustling town. The food is good for a hostel, and the place always has a lot of people to meet, but enough space to sit on...
