Stayed here for 3 nights, had room 302 with a small balcony. For 15 dollar it's certainly a good deal in Phnom Penh. People at reception are very friendly and helpfull.
The room itself was OK, had a TV and a small refrigerator. Street noise was acceptable i.m.o., maybe a bit louder in the weekends.
One thing, lightbulbs should be changed, no light on the balcony or above the bed.
They now have a new place around the corner, looks nice and is away from the noise, a bit more expensive, was quoted 20 dollar.

Room Tip: 302 has a tiny balcony.

Nice guesthouse, clean rooms with good air conditioning even if it was a bit loud. Service was friendly and efficient. Only real negative for me was the noise at night. The guesthouse is located on a street with lots of bars and sleazy nightclubs with music playing till 7am most mornings. For a light sleeper this is not great evenwith ear plugs. This may not bother some people but for me it meant a big reduction in the amount of sleep I got each night. Just a warning as otherwise the guesthouse is pretty good.

I was reluctant to write this review because it will probably make the place busier and harder to get a reservation! I was in phnom penh last summer and came across this hotel and must say it is the best value hotel in the area. $15 per night for a double room - very new, clean rooms, comfortable beds and friendly/helpful staff. A great location close to a market, many bars/restaurants and about a 10 minute walk from the riverfront. I would definitely recommend. I was in Phnom Penh again in January but unfortunately it was fully booked so i had to go elsewhere - I will definitely book in advance next time. Rooms have free wifi, air con and tv etc - all you need

Room is clean,useful staff,main door open 24hrs(most guesthouse closed their main door after midnite),this is very important as for me myself a drinker.
And all this at USD15!!to me,is the best rate at the area!!

Opened 2 years ago so almost everything is proper here. Good value for money. Great location for partygoers. 15$/day or 400$/month gets you a lovely room with big TV, quiet AC, fridge, furniture etc.
Light Sleepers should bring earplugs because the Heart of Darkness is just 10 m apart and the music plays into the wee hours (approx 5 a.m. on weekends).
Rare chance to get a room without booking during high season.
Families and conservative guests should NOT stay here as this place is frequented by men and their "lovely short time ladies" 24/7.

I have been staying this GH few times. It is clean and have nice newly renovated rooms. The prices are fair and staff is friendly.
Mattress are good quality and good to sleep.

They have safety boxes at the lobby where you can put your own lock and if you have visitors in room, the frontdesk will call you before they let the visitors out so there is feeling of safety. In my first stay I did stay at top floor, but next time I was in 3rd floor. At the top floor I was unable to connect the free WiFi, but in 3rd floor the signal quality was very good. I don't know for sure, but maybe they already fixed the signal quality for top floor also.

The GH is at very good location, but due to some bars and disco nearby it is in little bit noisy area. For me it does not matter because I am going to the bars also..

I can recommend to the one who is going to the bars and like to party.
