“Amazing to stay! Great value!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

The pool area was lovely! All open plan attached to the bar! Was really good!
We barely left! The food was so good we didn't eat anywhere else!
Cheese and coleslaw sandwiches! With real cheddar! And Caesar salads with real dressing and anchovies!
The rooms were clean and well maintained!
Also, the staff were lovely! So pleasant and makes such a difference!
Definitely recommend anyone to stay here!

It's a really nice place with a swimmingpool, clean rooms and toilets, good food and very nice staff!! I had a great time there, perfect to chill out next to the swimmingpool and to have some little party as well.the food is really good though not very cheap.
I definetely recommend it! Little oasis in this big stressful city!

We absolutely loved this hostel! The rooms are clean and the beds are so comfy! The staff are awesome, so friendly and good fun! The hostel is relaxed but organised and offer a lot of really good services for visas etc.

The pool area is really nice and the food is great too.

Were using 88 backpackers as a base in Cambodia and will be coming back another couple of times to travel out from here! We love it!

Definitely the best hostel in Phnom Penh!

Extra thanks to Derren, Chris, Nith and Anthony for making us feel so welcome and being so helpful! We had a blast!

Book in, you'll love it!

Thanks, Holly & Beth

Beautiful hotel-like rooms, lovely lounging and dining area with attached pool, super friendly staff and in a great area. We stayed for three nights and didnt have any problems at all. Highly recommended.

There is nothing negative to say about this hostel - the rooms are clean, the staff is very, very friendly, they have a swimmingpool and good food.

We've been 3 times in Phnom Penh, so we were staying 2 times at the eighty8 and one night at another hostel (not on purpose... it was near the busstation), but we've seen a lot of different accomondation there, and this was by far the best. If you wanna stay in Phnom Penh and not only enjoy the city but the hostel as well - go for it! eighty8 has it all.

TukTuks will drive you everywhere you ask :)

First night in Cambodia was here and it was perfect. Pretty quiet at the bar but we needed to just chill out. Staff are really friendly, helped plan our day trip to the killing fields and where to go from here. Food was really nice to! We would happily return!

Reviewed 29 April 2014

We stayed a this hostel as a family with children and enjoyed it thoroughly. I read about the partying and was a little concerned, but where not bothered by this at all. Perhaps because we where staying on the top floor. The pool is great, especially with the PhnomPen heat. You can enjoy good food and a dip after a hot day roaming the city. The staff where absolutely wonderful, spoke good English and where very helpful. It might be a tiny bit out of the city center, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing, and a Touktouk ride is so cheap and comfortable. If you choose this hotel, I strongly recommend a very kind, hard working ToukTouk driver called Ratana. (speaks great english) Ask for him by name, he is affiliated to the Hotel. He will make your experience in PhnomPen all the more enjoyable. (see pic)

Room Tip: We where not bothered by party noise. Even if we stayed on Friday which is supposed to be party time...
