I stayed in a private room that was spacious. It was surprisingly peaceful as well given the proximity to the hostel bar & the main road. Nice hostel & bar with a really lovely team. Felt very welcome there. Special mention to the manager Neat who did a great job

Probably the most clean hostel I've stayed in whilst travelling around South East Asia. The room was spacious and clean with good functioning air conditioning and fan all for a very reasonable price. The only negative about the room was the shower water was freezing. The staff were friendly and helped me post my postcard. The bar was lively with...

Thanks for taking the time to write your review - we have an amazing cleaning team here and are always delighted that the customers recognise this. Sorry about the shower, they are electric showers so should always be hot. If you report it to the staff they would have come to check. We have checked the showers in the private...

Had a great stay here, good vibe on the roof top bar. Excellent location and the staff were very friendly, and were always up for a laugh especially Neat, she was always smiling. Neat also took me out to the markets making sure the guests saw a lot in Phnom Penh. Also managed to sort out visas and travel here...

I have been to the banana rooftop bar on a number of occasions over the past couple of years. It is truly a great place in a great location. The staff, especially Ramet, is over the top good. They are all very friendly and help to make you feel comfortable and contribute to the great experience. Definitely will return next...

Myself and my friend stayed here 3 nights! We were able to book into a female only dorm. The rate (considering what you get for your $), is excellent value for money! We had a 6 bed dorm with 2 showers/toilets, big beds, outlets at every bed and a personal light at each bed. There are nice big lockers underneath...

Top Banana is located very close to all the main attractions and restaurants. There are also many Tuk-Tuks available right at their doorstep to take you anywhere you want. We stayed in a 8 bed dorm right below the Top Banana bar so it got a bit noisy late in the night. The bunk beds are very solid and non...
