It is good located with nice and clean rooms. It is a real backpackers hostel. A lot of young people, a nice pool, nice bar and a lot of party. They provide tuktuk's and help you to find people to share them with of you are going to one of the highlights in the city.

The rooms were clean and spacious enough. Towels were included. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Wifi connection was good. I had my laundry done here, but unfortunately I got a few white pieces back as pink ones. The food was good, but portions were rather small - not really good value for money. Music and chatting from the bar... More

I loved this hostel, especially the dorms (pods) as I had my own privacy along with sharing it with other travellers. The bar area is big and very chilled out but you have the option to have a wild night out with a member of staff (Steve) that will let you know when happy hour is and come out to... More

It's a great hostel, not in the middle of the city, but this makes it a little more quiet. They have tuktuks waiting at the entrance at all time and they are the good ones, so there is no hassle finding a good one. The hostel has a great bar/pool area which they clean daily (at breakfast you could always... More

The place was really great to stay at. Was in a private room which was clean and spacious. Big common area where you could always go down and find some new people to chat to. Staff were great and always smiling. Oh and they do a decent breakfast where the toast is actually toast and not just warm bread (anyone... More

My first impression was OMG what have I booked here. I came in late from my bus trip and the court yard was humming with loud music and so many people. Check in was simple, room was great. Once I had settled the atmosphere was awesome. Lots of open areas to get away from the party if needed. The staff... More

Great place, good atmosphere. A nice mix between a party hostel and a more relaxed hotel vibe. It was a clean, nice pool, easy asscess to wifi with good food. However, I haven't been overly impressed the food in Cambodia but it was a bitime better than average. The staff was helpful and easy to talk to, people like Steve... More

Not the most central, but a fun place to have stayed. Great bar manager, cool crowd, good for a night or two. Must say though that the bed was rock solid and so squeaky. The pool gives it a good added edge.
