Group of us stayed at this hostel all I can say is do not arrange airport pick ups from them as you think you are getting it for free but the reason it is free is because you have to book a tour through the hostel and they charge more than outside tuk tuks and keep the profits...not a good...

Stayed in the dorm. Unlimited AC. Hostel has a bar and a pool. Food and drinks slightly pricey but good. Employees and owner are fantastic. Good atmosphere at the bar in the evening. Highly recommend staying here - extended my stay from 3 to 4 nights.

Loved the location of this place, lots of cheap and tasty places to eat nearby- only a short walk away from the night market and pub streets which is nice- feels more relaxed and clean than in the town centre. Food prices are a tiny bit more than at the restaurants on the same street, A/C in room is good,...

This hostel is in a great location (5 min walk to the night market, next to restaurants and mini marts), the rooms are cleaned daily, the beds are big and comfortable and the pool is a nice place to take a dip in the heat. The staff is helpful and you can hire a bicycle to ride to Angkor Wat...

We stayed at this hostel for a total of 4 days in a private room. The room was clean and offered a quite escape from the party scene bar at the hostle. The bar was great and very fun to visit. The staff was super helpful with travel accommodations and helping us get around Angkor Watt.

Clean rooms and friendly, very helpful staff! We stayed here for four nights and loved it! We had a private room and it turns out it had a private bathroom! It was a very plesant surprise for us. Staff helped us get what we needed to have a great trip visiting the temples.

On just arriving Cambodia today, as a couple, we couldn't be happier with our choice of hostel. Great location, amazing vibe and cool decor. The staff have been so helpful already, Tony at reception gave us all the information we needed and more. Our room is decent, great value for 13$ a night for a double room with fan/aircon, hot...

This hostel is a solid 10/10. Such epic chilled vibes by pool (which is great because it is cooking hot here) and the pool bar. The staff are all super friendly and helpful - always willing to help plan day trips/tours. We are here visiting from South Africa, and will definitely recommend this place to our mates back home!:) PS....

Great vibe, great music, great people, great location and very affordable. Stayed in a private double bed room with a fan, was simple but everything worked perfectly and we had 3 very good night's staying in that room.

A fabulous hostel just minutes from pub street. Has a nice pool perfect for refreshing after a long day in the sun plus a "beach bar" complete with sand. Good drink specials every night. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful with booking transportation and whatnot

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
