“Awesome”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

Came here because of a friend had recommended. Had very high expectations and they were met. I was able to relax during the day and sleep well at night if I chose to. But I was also able to hang out and meet other travelers in the rooftop bar if I wanted to. The rooftop bar was awesome. Seriously one of the best vibes I've encoutered in a bar in Southeast Asia for sure. I am from New Orleans so I have a very high expectations for atmosphere at drinking establishments, and thi didn't let me down one bit. Would definitely rteturn for sure. Highly recommend it.

The best hostel in Asia - great staff, clean rooms and the roof top bar is amazing! The food is brilliant as well. As a solo traveller it was very easy to find new friends here. Really recommend this hostel!

Top Banana is a well run hostel with great staff. The double room we stayed at was really big, nice and clean. The rooftopbar is fun and has a social vibe. The program there changes from day to day (DJs, singer songwriter, Barbecue...). The area is really nice! Lots of restaurants, bars, shops, sights in walking distance etc.

I've stayed at top a few times now and it's consistently been good. Rooms are clean and secure, padlock and door lock. The management are on the ball and deal with any queries quickly. Highly recommend for expats and backpackers

Didn't actually stay there but I have to say the bar is great. Lots if great people, lovely staff and a chill ambience. Beers are cheap and food is good. Highly recommended if you're in Phnom Penh. As I said I personally have not stayed there but some of my friends have and say that they've had an enjoyable stay. The bathrooms are very clean and the general hygiene of the bar. They have different events for different night so be sure to come on different nights. For example on Tuesday nights they have a live music and open mic. Or Sunday is a chill movie night. This place is great to meet new people and generally have a good time.

We stayed 2 nights in a double room with shared bathroom facilities. The room was good with a fan and bathroom was clean (only cold showers so a good way to wake up in the morning)
Good location - ten minute walk from the riverfront or always tuk tuks waiting outside. Cool bar area and first beers were free

Only downside was they forgot to put our laundry through :( so we travel onwards with more dirty clothes but no biggie

Yes it can be noisy with the music but our tip is to get involved - that way I won't be annoying to you

Top Banana was a fantastic place to stay. We had a great time there - something happening at the bar each night and the staff were so friendly and helpful. It is a good location and close to other hostels which are also good for having a meal or drink. Wifi connection was really good and food was pretty good too. The beds were amazing, they were really big, with nice pillows and bedding. They also have big lockers which you can keep your whole backpack in (we could fit both of ours in one, they're that big). The rooms and bathrooms were lovely and clean too. Definitely recommend staying here!
