Somehow the name says it all: this place has a solid, very pleasant character. And it also has helpful staff, laid back and cool atmosphere, clean rooms with AC and fan, and it's well situated in the small town of Battambang...

Dragons was fantastic. Was genuinely sad to go. People, staff, food, atmosphere, advice - all was brilliant. Stayed in numerous hostels across Asia over the years and this was my favourite experience. Only downside is the owner's a Tottenham fan, beyond that you will not be disappointed.

Really friendly hostel, great food, chilled out people who are all really social. Locals that work here are all really helpful and will find you the best deals around for trips. Beds are bigger than a single!

We had a great time at here be dragons. We stayed in a double room which is very basic but clean. The location is great, the staff is friendly and helpful and the bar is a great place to meet other travelers. I would definitely choose this place again.

Only stayed here for 2 nights in a fan dorm. Was in doubt to give 2 or 3 points. The beds were great and the staff was very friendly. There are not enough fans for everyone and they dont turn so i had no fan at all. The room was really really hot, which made it impossible to sleep well....

Such a lovely and chilled place. We had our first good sleep after all the stress in Siem Reap. The food here is DELICIOUS and the prices compare to those in the area. The outdoors area is so chilled and cozy and the whole place has such a nice, relaxed yet professional vibe. They really know what they are doing!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Battambang's backpacker hangout, on the banks of the Sangker River. Swap stories with other travellers at our late-night bar over a cheap cocktail or an ice-cold beer. Or, if you just want to relax after the bustle of Bangkok or Siem Reap, kick back in a hammock in our beautiful garden. We serve Khmer and some Western food, and a great Full English breakfast. ... more   less
