Stayed in a 3 bedroom private room. Really nice large room. Cheap and affordable. Great location, only a 3min walk to the city centre across the bridge. 30s Tuktuk to Pub Street. Really friendly staff! Great management! Looks brand new and feels like a really chilled environment. They have their own bar and restaurant with prices cheaper than the city...

We stayed for two nights. We didn't spend too much time there since we went to the temples most of the time. We had air condition and the rooms were cleaned every day. We supposedly had two breakfasts included, in the end we had to pay for it, not knowing why. The location was great since the hostel is close...

The small restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, beer & cocktails and you can take it to the pool as well. The rooms are clean and have aircon. Free WiFi is also available. Laundry service is also offered,...

The hostel was nice enough, good for an overnight stay. The location is really good, and their mini van service to Phnom Penh was really good for $10. We stayed for 2 days, unfortunately one night was ruined by an idiot chanting football songs from around 3am. In general we didn't find it too noisy but that one night kind...

This place says it's been newly refurbed and it's ok. It's not really a hostel it's a hotel with bunk beds. There is no social area it's more like a hotel reception and the tv is so high up on the wall away from the seats you can barely see it. There's a pool which is a bonus and some...

Central hostel is a short tuktuk ride from the airport in Siem Reap (15mins away and cost $6 USD) The reception is open 24hours and the staff are friendly and happy to help with booking buses and excursions etc. The room was spacious and clean with a good AC unit. Beds were extremely hard but easy enough to fall asleep...

I stayed there 3 nights and everything was great. Modern, super clean and comfortable dorms, with your own light, plack, shelf and locker. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location is also very convenient, as it is near the city centre but far from the noisy streets. The food in the restaurant is really good and cheap. I...

The hostel I planned to stay was closed due to renovation so they pointed me to the Central Hostel. I enjoyed my stay there. Very nice and welcoming check-in from the local staff and foreign manager. I came with my own Motorcycle and they moved it inside the lobby every night for security reasons. Good service. The rooms, I stayed...

Dear Jenna K, Your review seems a little misinformed and exaggerated. We have checked Room 36 thoroughly and the AC is running perfectly and only 1 of the 6 lights in the room (not half!) were not working. We have a phone outside the room where you can call us for maintenance or cleaning whenever you need. We also have...
