We were trying to save a bit of money for few days and choose this place. Overall it is a good place to stay but it needs some updating and then it would be awesome. The location is 10 minutes from the "action" ( pub street and the markets) the owner is great and the staff are very friendly. They...

Needed a place to stay for my first night in Siem Reap and this did the trick. It is actually a nice place with friendly staff, but was too big and isolated for my needs as a solo backpacker. Would recommend for couples of families looking for a nice place on a budget that want some peace and quiet.

This place is walkable distance to the night market (about 15 minutes top). I stayed in a single room with a queen bed. Since the bathroom is a wet room (shower in same space as toilette and sink) it flooded while showering and took a little while to drain all the water. The rooms are very basic and the sheets...

Friendly staff and clean rooms. Geckos everywhere, which is a good thing if you've not been in this part of the world before--they eat the bugs. The location is good, Siem Reap is tiny so entirely walkable. The bad is that there is a metalworking shop next door, and about 50 shrieking children from 7 AM until around 8 PM....

The rooms are not great, beds were fine but shower wasn't great and some of the power outlets weren't working. Location is average, about a fifteen minute walk to pub streets and the market, or a cheap tuk tuk ($1-2). The staff were very friendly and helpful but didn't speak very good English. All in all, if you want a...

Sam So Guesthouse is small but very nice, friendly. I came to the hostel very late due to some accidents on the way from Phnom Penh to Siem Riep, the receptionist welcomed me very friendly, he even let me use his phone to call to my family in Vietnam. The host and his wife are so nice, they always ask...

My stay at Sam So Guesthouse was truly exceptional! The building has true character and it reminds you of the French-Cambodia. The guesthouse has a balcony on every floor, which offers a nice tropical view of Siem Reap. It is a relatively calm and quiet area, which was perfect after a long, adventurous day in Angkor Wat. In regards to...

Arrived at Sam So Guesthouse after long flights from Johannesburg via Singapore and was greeted by very friendly people. The facility is in a bit of a run-down part of Siem Reap but is clean and one gets reminded slightly of the former colonial era in Cambodia even to the physical age of the building. Linen is a bit worn...
