My room was facing the pool, good size and with hangers for the clothes. Comfortable, all very clean and the staff very helpful. The breakfast not included but there are a good variety reasonably priced.

The highlight of this hostel is most definitely the pool area which is a great place to relax. There's a small restaurant next to the pool which is quite nice (probably not the cheapest option though). Tuk tuk trips to the killing fields and S21 can be booked through the hostel, and they put you together in groups of four...

Clean, comfortable hostel. Not a social hostel, I think due to it being half hotel - which isnt made very clear when booking. Front desk staff not very helpful but other staff very nice. Really nice to lay by the pool!

Very nice hostel/ hotel. Private rooms and dorms. We stayed in a dorm, 8 other people. Very very clean, nice and helpful people, location is okay! And a nice swimming pool to cool down after a hot day. It was our last day but we saw they also organise trips in a shared minivan to the killing fields and the...

Positive: Pool is nice, and the area is quiet. Negative: Staff is quite rude, but you don't have to speak to them. Maids stole a few of my things, but refuse to answer me about it. Other staff just answered that the maids do not steal. But they certainly did. The value was only 22 USD, but I guess it...

Great pool area and lovely shower in the dorm. Our room was clean, air conditioned and modern with spacious lockers. Staff very helpful for booking buses and easy to join tours. The only downside was food was a bit pricy and there aren't so many places to eat nearby, although it's about a 15 minute walk to the lively area...

This hotel is walking distance to the central market. And you can reach the Royal palace with a tuk tuk ride of 5-10minutes. They also have joined tour to s21 prison & killing fields at reasonable price. This is a good way to visit especially you travel alone.
