Really glad we ended up here. Great hostel! The staff are so friendly, welcoming and super helpful. Such a relaxing little spot in the madness of the city. And the pod beds are just awesome. Will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Phnom Penh.

Me and my boyfriend spent the evening here having a few drinks. Great atmosphere, really chilled with house music playing (my boyfriend was in heaven). Good priced food and drink for backpackers. There's even a pool if you're here during the day! Would definitely recommend!

A very adequate hostel for a short time in Phnom Penh. I stayed in two different rooms here, the second was quite a bit nicer than the first. I think the girls dorms are not quite as nice as the general mixed dorms... but both were clean enough and provided all we needed for a good nights sleep. I would...

We stayed in this hostel for 2 nights, and it was a good base for exploring PP. Its a little further from the main sights than we would have liked but we were still mostly able to walk everywhere we wanted to visit or take a cheap tuk tuk. The bar and pool has a relaxed vibe and it was...

The hostel is a good place for larger groups to stay in PP. although we had booked a family room, it was not available when we arrived. But they offered us a six bed dorm all for ourselves as compensation. Very helpful staff, and speak good English. Tuk-tuk service is avalaible for cheap prices. The only drawback is the location,...

The best thing about this place is the common area/bar/lounge adjacent to the pool. My friend and I ended up spending the whole day hanging out in there while planning the rest of the trip. The food and drinks are delicious and there are a lot of comfy chairs and sofas. Feels luxurious! The dorm we stayed in was clean...

While there are definitely cheaper places to stay, this place was worth the price. I stated on a deluxe single room with a bathroom. It came with a shared balcony. There's a bar downstairs with a pool and a pool table. I liked the music, but it played all day until midnight. Not a problem for me but if you're...

I stayed twice here as I was happy with my first stay so returned at the end of my Cambodian trip. Pods are spacious, almost double bed size with huge lockers. Individual fans and charging station in the pods. Well staffed, hot showers, good food and large lounge with pool all for $7 a night... great value! They could use...
