We ended up staying there one night because the GH around were full. It's really cheap : $6 for a double bed with fan. But this place is just disgusting : we had to remove our shoes at the entrance, whith is totally fine, but the floor was not clean and after walking, my feet were sticky. The room was... More

We booked a room in this guesthouse for 3 nights but we changed our plan because of the bed bugs in the matress... I spent two horrible nights in this room without window, with bad smelle and i still have the marks of the 139 stings I had... So I can't recommend this place.

As someone who has lived in Cambodia for the better part of 20 years, I have seen my share of small, cheap guesthouses. This one, however wins the prize of the worst, most overpriced hotel I've ever stayed in. The sheets had not been washed, the room's walls, once white, were green and black with years of mold. The bathroom... More

This was the worst hostel I have EVER stayed in ! We were send there by the 11 Happy Hostel in Phnom Penh, which was all in all quite nice. In Siem Reap we stayed in the "Sheraton" room.. at the end the name seemed like a bad joke to me. The room was small and there were no windows... More

Besides the location and the friendly stuff, I do not see any reason to stay in the golden fish. We shared a double room for 8$ (no air con but private bathroom), the room was rather small and weirdly "decorated". Unfortunately the matress, sheets and pillows were not only very uncomfortable, they weren't clean and did not smell fresh at... More

We were taken here by the tuk-tuk driver who drove us into town from the bus station and simply we were too tired to look elsewhere. The twin & double rooms were $7 a night so not expensive, but I'd rather pay a bit more and be able to sleep. We stayed for 3 nights and honestly, when we left... More

My friend and I were taken here by our driver and we looked at the room and decided it was fine so decided to stay here for a few days in Siem Reap. First impression is that it's nothing special, but there is something about it that we really liked. There is a nice homely feel with the communal area... More

Lots of backpackers, good place to socialize, near pub street and night market. $7 room was simple, with ensuite bathroom, wifi and fan. Staff was ok. Don't expect big/clean/quiet rooms, but if you want to socialize and are ready to rought it, then this is the right place for you. However, you can find more comfortable places just 5 min... More
