Local staff nice and helpful. Would be nice if owners (foreigners US) could be nice too. At least say Hi to the guests . It seems that very good reviews make them arrogant and stop paying attention to the quality and guest. Room: many things out of orders a/c, tab, washingbasin. Too loud disco music. You can't relax at the...

It's a nice experience , although there are nobair do in room 3, it's not easy to sleep during the hot night Staff are nice and willing to solve my questions. When I go to airport, they also help me to group with other people, so that I can get a low price of tuktuk

I stayed at this amazing hostel for four nights and it was really good. All four nights I slept in the female dorm. It is clean, the beds are big and nice and the bar is a really good place to hang out. The staff at this hostel is incredibly friendly and they are always willing to help or to...

The room was clean and the beds were larger than expected which was greatly appreciated. I had a really good sleep every night I was there. The pool table was frustrating because of the white ball wasn't round. Blood pressure went up by 20 points because of this 😂 The food was good, cheap, high quality and enjoyable. The atmosphere...

Great and clean place. Nice a/c dorms. But the one thing that gets it up to 5 stars is the bar/lounge/pool/svimmingpool area.. good music and nice drinks. And if you ask the friendly staff you can get them to turn sport on the big screen. If your up for happy mood cigarettes while enjoying the pool, they are as well...

Really glad we ended up here. Great hostel! The staff are so friendly, welcoming and super helpful. Such a relaxing little spot in the madness of the city. And the pod beds are just awesome. Will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Phnom Penh.

Me and my boyfriend spent the evening here having a few drinks. Great atmosphere, really chilled with house music playing (my boyfriend was in heaven). Good priced food and drink for backpackers. There's even a pool if you're here during the day! Would definitely recommend!

If you are looking for a "cheap" but cosy hostel in phnom penh, i would recommend the eighty8. Had a great time and the managers gave me a welcome feeling. Thank you for being part of this once in a lifetime experience!

A very adequate hostel for a short time in Phnom Penh. I stayed in two different rooms here, the second was quite a bit nicer than the first. I think the girls dorms are not quite as nice as the general mixed dorms... but both were clean enough and provided all we needed for a good nights sleep. I would...
