Kind staff, cute towel arrangements, reasonable price, and conveniently located next to a restaurant (White Elephant restaurant) that serves cow penis in ants' eggs. There is also a relaxing resort (ie place that has hammocks and serves cold drinks) by the river which is a short moto drive away. That's pretty much it for local entertainment. Slight downside - this...

Had 3 days of meals provided by the Karuna staff aft days of community work with SSF and couldn't have wished for more! Excellent services provided by them, all for a meaningful cause, as the girls are well trained with service skills. Superb manager running the guesthouse too! Would definitely love to be back soon:)

My only regret in writing a review for the Karuna Hospitality is that I had to wait until I got home to write it. The girls could not have provided better service and quality. The food was often impromptu based on personal requests or availability, but it didn't matter - I enjoyed some of the best dishes I had in...

Forget any other place to stay in Kampong Speu, the Golden House Hotel is closed forever and the other guesthouses try to put you in dark and spooky rooms, rip you of and don't speak any English. Here in Karuna Guesthouse you stay in affordable, well maintained, spacious and spotless rooms with fan, aircon, bathroom, hot shower, and even a...

I stayed at Karuna when I was volunteering for Sao Sary Foundation that runs the hostel as a training center for youth. I had the best time ever with other volunteers that usually stay there as well as with Karuna staff. Girls working there are just nice, skilled and the way they cook is just marvelous, if you only want...

By staying here, you support a hospitallity training center for Cambodian youth. You not only support with your money but also with your stay because the girls gain more experience in their hospitallity skills.A perfect way to do something good while you enjoy travelling. Very friendly and smiling staff!

I recently stayed at the Karuna Guesthouse for five nights at the end of May. The guestrooms are simple and clean, and the air conditioning was much appreciated during the very warm nights we spent there. The food was very good...the fried rice and Karuna noodles were my favorite. However, the best part about staying at the Karuna was the...

We had a great time at the hostel for 4 days as part of a group trip to the Kampong Speu area! The staff is extremely friendly and good at their job. Be sure to try the curry, and the soups are quite good as well. The beds are nice and firm and deliver a sound night's sleep. A newly...
