“great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013

i came to koh rong after hearing about it from a few travellers i met along the road, and it was an amazing experience. as i was travelling alone at that time i decided to stay at the backpackers and i'm really happy i did. the staff ist very very friendlly (and english speaking), the place has a very good vibe, you'll meet lots of other travellers and end up having an awesome time. they have a very good bar/restaurant (nice food) from which you have a phenomenal view at the water and the island.
the island itself is like paradise, still very untouched and lots of wild nature. i would come back here anytime. 5/5 :)

We didn't stay here however we had lunch and breakfast there.

The chicken amok was real nice out of the 4 times i had it, I thought the one at backpackers was the best one.

My hubby had the chicken sandwich which was the almost the same price as the amok however it was very small baguette so he was still very hungry.

Nice chilled place.

I arrived in koh rong not really sure what to expect.... but i found the island to be paradise. the backpackers is run by english staff who made me feel very relaxed and at home. i was told in sihanukville by travel agents that there was no where to stay on the island and everywhere was fully booked but after speaking with a diver that worked over there, he recommended i rang the backpackers and there was availability. The place was very clean, food really good and such a relaxed vibe. The bonus i found was it is built on the ocean so there is a nice breeze day and night. The 2 days turned into 6 and i strongly recommend the long sunset beach for a day out. Thanks to all the great people I met there, it made the end of the trip something to remember. See the place before it turns into koh samui!!

I stayed at Koh Rong Backpackers right after they opened the place for business. My intention was to stay for 1 or 2 nights, but the island as well as this place and the great people running it caused me to stay for 11nights!!!

There are several dorm-style rooms available on the second floor while the first floor is made up by a bar and lounge/seating area with a view on the island and the sea on 3!!! sides.
From breakfast to dinner there is always fresh european as well as khmer food to be had.

Like all hotels and restaurants on the island everything is rather basic. There is no permanent electricity or hot water, but staying on this island you won't miss it a bit!
