I was actually surprised when i arrived in my room. I'd read not to judge the hostel by the outside (which was great advice!) but when i got to the inner courtyard, it's actually very nice. The rooms were very large and had seats on the balconies outside. They offer a free airport transfer which was helpful. I then used that driver Mr Soun for the next 5 days for a great rate. He took me to see everything, even on long days when i was ready to go back to the hotel, he was keeping me motivated to see more. He was great. If you stay there, ask for him!
It's a 10 minute walk to the bar street and main part of town. I was actually glad it was away from that area as it was nice to be in a more local quiet part.
Yes it would have been nice to come back to a swimming pool after a day in the oppressive heat there, but want can you expect for such a great price.
If I went back to Siem Reap, I would definitely stay here again.
