“Great place!”
Reviewed 18 May 2012 via mobile

I had the pleasure at this very nice guesthouse and it was so good that i decided to stay a couple of days extra. The swimmingpool and the bar is such a good place to hang out. Staff is very friendly and food is good. Its just a short distance From the old backpacker area "lakeside" which is still worth a visit although its not what it used to be. If ur going to phnom penh, stay at eighty8 !

On my journey back packing I made a short trip through Cambodia, and Eighty8 had been recommended as the place to stay...the recommendations were not wrong!! This place has a welcoming atmosphere, a very comfortable bar / seating area, and they have some good food on offer at pretty reasonable prices. The pool is lovely, and a bonus considering how reasonable the rates are. All of the staff are so friendly and helpful, I almost didn't want to leave!! Thanks again for an enjoyable visit guys =)

I stayed here when I travelling alone through Cambodia. Was a perfect place for me - met loads of people and the staff were great! (try the noodle soup, it rocks)
Shared rooms meant it was ideal on a budget and I could grab a really reasonably priced meal here too.
The location was good and I could always get a moto (organised by the staff at 88)
I have stayed in loads of places around Cambodia and this was my favourite. Thanks 88 for an amazing stay.

We stayed in a aircon room in 88 and we loved it here, lazy days by the pool, nice and spacious with pool tables and relaxing chairs to chill out on.

Met some lovely people here and the night barman, Monty was a real character with a great impression of a scottish accent!

The tours were a little on the pricey side, i'd reccommend getting your ticket elsewhere and the food isn't as cheap as it seems - the prices are in riel so it's a bit deciving when your used to dollars - saying that the food was pretty good though.

Bit out of the way - but that's not a bad thing.

Overall 7/10!

A really great place to meet people and to relax in between seeing the sights in and around Phnom Penh. There is a nice pool, a well stocked bar and good food. The owners Paul and Amanda really looked after me, as did the rest of the staff who are all Khmer. It's worth taking the time to get to know the guys who work here as they are a lot of fun, very trustworthy and can take care of all your needs while you're in Phnom Penh. Thanks guys!

Room Tip: The dorm rooms are pretty basic but have lockers and AC. As pointed out by another reviewer the bath...
