Simply amazing. I stayed in the dorm for 5 days, my idea was spending only 2 days in the city but I taked so much fun here. It is a cheap and really nice guest house, the food and beds are very good but the most amazing thing is their staff, they treated me really well making me feel as...

Enjoyed our stay here and we would definitely return. Really friendly staff and a great menu for fairly reasonable price. Good location in the city with a lot going on around but you don't need to look far when the rooftop bar is so comfortable. The room was clean and an okay bathroom. We were on a budget and managed...

Credit this hostel, they've put a lot of effort into creating a really top notch rooftop bar - unfortunately this is at the expense of any care whatsoever given to the quality of the accommodation. Easily the worst room I've ever stayed in. Mould on the walls, floor and ceiling which you could smell as soon as the door opened...

Stayed in double room, good air conditioning, brilliant value for money. Situated near all sorts of great tucker on the street, and more bars than you will need. Very helpful, and a little cinema attached to boot.

You can't have a night club with loud music all night on the roof and expect to have people sleep there. The stairs in the hotel are big and wide and it allows the noise to travel into every room. I took the advise of the tuk tuk driver I told him I wanted a cheep hotel in a quiet...

Didn't stay here but great rooftop bar for casual drinks! Pool tables, nice lighting and really cheap drinks. Great vibe about the place and open to anyone (not just people in the hostel). $1 draft beer and cocktails from $2. Happy hour finishes at 9.

Staff completely into their phones 24/7. You stay there waiting for attention but whatsapp messages and favebook are more important than you! Rooftop bar is nice but same atmosphere as downstairs. Choose something else, as Phnom Penh has plenty of options for you!

It was a really friendly vibe, there is also a rooftop bar which is relaxed and "happy" friendly. The rooms were air conditioned and clean. Enjoyed the stay here. It's in a great location too, couple minutes walk from the food market and night market.

Decent ish hostel in the heart of Phnom Penh. Reasonably priced food with a good cinema next door. Slept in a 10 person dorm with no issues, fans were great and we even had a balcony. Wifi only worked downstairs and was pretty iffy on the rooftop bar (which has some pretty great views but also two very run-down pool...
