“Great clean rooms, awesome staff, chill hangout, good food!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

We stayed three nights at Same Same Backpackers in Siem Reap, we were picked up at the bus station for free and had a nice comfortable bed and much needed AC for 10 USD a night. There are great deals on drinks and food throughout the whole day. It's a ten minute walk from pub street, or a one dollar tuk tuk ride. The staff at Same Same are awesome and very accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to everyone. It is also very new and clean.

Located not far from the city center Same Same Backpacker is a good choice for people who are looking for a cheap but quality guesthouse. The bar, with free pool table, is a great place to relax and have a good cocktail. Also the menu has a big variety of Khmer and Western food. It's also possible to arrange tuktuk tours to the temples for a good price. The Same Same crew will welcomed me with open arms!

We stayed in the other same same backpackers in Phnom Penh and we're impressed enough to stay at the same place in Siem Reap!

Rooms are perfectly clean and large given the price tag! We stayed in a double ensuite and had 2 double beds in our room!

We arrived at 2am without a booking and while the place looked locked up, we called a few times and Ali opened up and let us in! Glad he did, we stayed 3 nights and don't have a bad word to say!

We also booked our tour of Angkor with them and we're lucky enough to get yo yo driving the bat mobile! See the other reviews for details. Suffice to say he is a genuine good guy and for the agreed price took us everywhere we wanted in what was a scorching hot day! He even had iced water in his cooler for us which was most welcome given the temps were 46+!

Long story short, stay here, book angkor Wat with them and for the money and service, u simply will not find better.

Had an absolutely amazing time staying at Same Same Guesthouse! The staff working here are what make the place special, Ali, Yo Yo and everyone else! Everyone very friendly and welcoming. It was our first stop in Cambodia and we have enjoyed our first stay so much! Food amazing (especially the burgers) and rooms very clean, only for $6 per night (so we paid $3 each per night) for a standard double room.

Also the staff can offer to take you to Angkor Wat for the day. Yo Yo kindly drove us around Angkor Wat on his bat mobile Tuk Tuk, all for a reasonable price. He even let us plug our iPods in to the speaker which was cool!

Thank you again Same Same, we will definitely recommend this place to our friends and try return in the future!

Same same was our first stop in Cambodia and the staff were so welcoming, friendly and helpful with anything we needed to know. A nice chill out area at the front with a pool table and sofas. Food is awesome... (The special burger is especially awesome!!)
Comfortable clean nice double room for $6 ($3 each) and so worth it for the price!
Location is also perfect! 5 minute walk from pub street, the old market and 3 different night markets.
They organised our sunrise/sunset trip to angkor wat and YoYo (the tuk tuk driver) was amazing! Nicest guy ever who was helpful and let us plug our iPods in in his tuk tuk while we drove around the spectacular temples. Very cheap too!
Food and drink is cheap and the happy hour and free drink with food offers are generous!
Would definitely recommend this place to anyone!
Don't bother looking around.. JUST GO HERE!!

Had such a good time here, amazing food, good room, and the staff were all so friendly. Yoyo the tuktuk driver gave us such a good tour of all the temples including of course Angkor wat. Really wish I could have stayed here longer!

The staff are really helpful and friendly, going out of their way to make sure we are happy. Yoyo and Ali really make a friendly and relaxed vibe. Try Yoyo at a game of pool... pretty tough competition!
The food in the restaurant is nice, and even when i found one dish too spicy (as i am very sensitive to spice) , even after making them add coconut milk for me 3 times, Ali offered to make me another dish!
Just ten mins walk to town. quite a quiet street, with few restarants and a few little shops on. The bar has comfy seats and nice pool table to play on. Drinks and food are affordable. The room was basic but cheap, clean and with quite a comfy pillow.
Map the tuk tuk driver took us to ankor wot and we had a really nice day, he is very friendly, and the level of english spoken is very good from all the staff. They will help you with any tours or travel you need.
i recommend same same backpackers to all for a cheap and fun night at this hostel :D

Room Tip: room 5's bed is a little uncomfy as you can feelthe sprngs a bit :/
