The straff in this hotel is really weird as there is always a bunch of people hanging around and you are never sure whether they work there or are just visiting. Shower has pressure and gets kind of warm also. Rooms where okay, nothing special, towels and toiletpaper was provided if you asked often enough. Location was good, about 10min...

We were brought there by the tuktuk driver from the bus station (probably like most people there...) we stayed at a double room with fan and shared bathromm for 5$ Per night. The room was very dirty, there were a lot of spider webs and even fungi on the ceiling. The staff was very unfriendly as well. If you're just...

After a long day travelling from the North of Thailand all I wanted was a bed and a clean shower. Tuk Tuk driver took me to this hostel and straight away I wanted to check out. It was extremely dirty in the dorm rooms compared to others that I have stayed in. Poor atmosphere and glad I only had one...

We discovered the bed bugs the third night (2pm) (though felt them after the first night, not being sure what it was) went to the reception and were'nt helped at all (just mousquito bites - no other room available)...

Our stay here was really good. Room was reasonably priced $12 for a clean air con room. The reaturants is cheap and good food. It seemed quite disorganised and it was hard to tell who was in charge and the laundry service was awful. (Late to return the clothes and then they were damp and smelly- use somewhere down the...

This is my first, and hopefully my last, less than 3 star Trip Advisor rating. During my stay I met other conent & happy guests, so I stress that this was my experience alone & one I hope given my conversations with staff members, will never happen to another guest.

What a strange place! The room is smelly, hasn't got toilet paper, not even a towel provided. Just a disgrace. After having a shower we decided to move to another hotel. The owner went mad and wanted us to pay half the price for the night. (I gave him $5, way enough for a shower. After quite a loud argument...

After picking us up from the bus stop our Tuk Tuk driver informed us it was Labour day and that every hotel was fully booked. And yet he took us directly to The Siem Reap Central Hostel were they had a room available. I suspect he had some deal with the owner. The room itself was disgusting. Had I gone...

cant believe that it's $10 fan room, it should be $2. It makes me think worse more about Cambodia. Please stay away from this name. Don't trust taxi driver too much. There're many good hotels located near old market

“If you need anything, ask the staff. They are more than happy to help you. The food is a good price and you can store extra in the fridge upstairs. Towels are replenished upon exchange. TV, AC and furniture are in the rooms. Keep shoes outside to show respect.”
