Let me just begin with saying that the staff is so friendly here and really helpful when you ask questions! This place had been getting 5 stars from me with their comfy beds, great food, nice pool and good hang out spots if it weren't for that we had to check in 2 hours later than the set time because...

Located in the plush French Quarter, this is for people who don't mind staying away from the bulk of the sites and recommended restaurants. Wat Phnom aside there isn't much around, other than posh residences and the Us embassy. As such, I wouldn't recommend it for those budgeting a very short stay in Phnom Penh. Inside the budget a/c room...

I was at this hostel several times throughout two months in Cambodia. The Khmer staff (esp. Bora, Chendal and Mamith) were so helpful and upbeat, and really help you absorb the shock of the bustling town. The food is good for a hostel, and the place always has a lot of people to meet, but enough space to sit on...

I have no stayed here on 3 separate occasions and always loved it. The staff are amazing and the vibe is perfect. I stayed in the cheapest dorms and they were comfortable queen size beds with AC and fans. Bathrooms are always clean and beds get made everyday. The location is perfect for all the sites and the best tuk...

Two days I stayed at the eighty8 backpackers, that's says a lot! Although I love more the boutique hostels, my time with the team of eigthy8 (Cheatah and the other guys.. too many great names to put here!) made me forget about it. I've never came across such a friendly reception. Always patient to help you out. And they literally...

We had a two night stay in a private room here at Eighty8 Backpackers and had a pretty decent stay. This was our first hostel experience and it was pretty cool. The staff was great. The room was clean and the poolside bar/restaurant had some pretty good food. The location isn't the greatest. Your pretty far from anything, so be...
