Decent place fair location, liked the single dorm bed instead of bunks. Staff were friendly and helpful. Useful tuktuk share scheme on the front desk and the bar was ok with a pool table. I didn't eat there as it wasn't so cheap. Would recommend as a stopover for a night or two

Stayed here for few days whilst in Phnom Penh. The location is pretty bad, not really near anything. We stayed in a private room (actually the one shown on the website) the bed was rock hard and very uncomfortable, the windows had been blacked out so there was no natural light, the a/c was ineffective and we needed a fan...

Unfortunately the toilet and sink was leaking, shower wasn't working properly. It's a bit of a distance to the center of the city. The dormroom was clean and lockers were provided. Though the room is directly above the bar so it's difficult to sleep before midnight.

We arrived very late to the hostel but the receptionist received us warmly and correct . The room is adequate to a hostel rating but I want to highlight the good sleep that we had (a/c was better than other hotels in Cambodia ) . The breakfast portions are huge and delicious ideal to get you ready for Phnom Penh....

Nice hostel, kept clean and with good facilities including a small swimming pool. Customer service at the main desk could be better though. Had issues with not being listened to and being talked over on several occasions.

My friend and I enjoyed our stay at the hostel. The staff were very friendly, the room was very clean and roomy. The only thing that would be better is if the washroom had a better door rather than two curtains, even a single curtain would do. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay!
