“Good hostel, great value, friendly staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

I stayed at this hostel for 3 days on an excursion from Phnom Penh. I found it to be incredibly friendly. Within 20 minutes of arrival I was in the bar with new friends - beer costs 50c during happy hour!

My room was fairly clean, however my sheets were dirty and stained.

Would definitely recommend. Have visited several hostels in Siem Reap and this was my personal favourite for balance between partying and luxury.

Hi, thanks for taking the time to comment.
Yes, some of our linen was somewhat stained during recent city water shortages- we had to use our iron heavy well water for laundry. So some of our sheets and pillows are a little less than brilliant white- it is expensive to replace so we are doing it gradually to keep our costs down to our guests. All part of living in a developing country - along with regular power cuts,bad roads etc.... but all our linen is presented to new arrivals freshly washed (you can smell it!) and changed every 3 days thereafter.
All the best.

Great prices, friendly staff...suggestions would be the sheets and pillow cases cn be cleaner, mirror should be added outside bathrooms (this is for the 6 mixed bed dorm rooms). Overall, amazing experience and great location!!

Thanks so much for the full marks. Our linen was somewhat stained during recent water shortages- we had to use our well which has a pretty heavy iron content which is impossible to remove. It was a city wide issue. While some of our sheets and pillows are a little less than brilliant white, all our linen is presented to new arrivals freshly washed and changed every 3 days thereafter. We are replacing them gradually to keep our costs down to guests.
We will be installing mirrors in the dorms over coming weeks - thanks for this feedback- we always appreciate hearing how we might improve. Glad you enjoyed your time here,

Happy Trails!

The management and staff of The Siem Reap Hostel do a fantastic job running one of the best hostels I've stayed at. Rooms are clean, great crowd and easy to meet people, it's a perfect home base to explore Angkor and the surrounding areas.

This hostel is exceptional. It has a great bar with .50 cent beers at happy hour and excellent food that is cheap. Very social atmosphere and nice rooms. Every day activities are written up on white boards where you can sign up for outings and tours with others in the hostel for cheap. Also the hostel is Eco friendly and supports the community, helping promote the development of Cambodia. Highly recommend.

stayed here for 4 nights in a private room and really enjoyed the cleanliness and facilities in the room (it is serviced every 3 days) along with the staff assistance in booking tours and arranging share trips via the whiteboard system.

well done to the management and staff for creating a great atmosphere including the pool and bar area as a place to relax and enjoy at the start and end of each day while in Siem Reap.

Awesome! Thanks for the great review - staying on top of the game allows us to keep improving conditions for our staff as well as supporting community support initiatives that the SRH has been involved with from our beginning in 2007. Good reviews are crucial to help us help the community we live and work in. Thanks for appreciating what we love doing. (BTW we clean all our rooms EVERY day and change the sheets every 3 days - unless Do Not Disturb is showing!)
Happy trails!:-)

Stayed here for four nights and easily could have stayed longer. The restaurant/bar was big, with friendly staff, cheap drinks and good food! The rooms were clean, well air conditioned, and had their own shower and bathroom. The location was AWESOME, a quick five minute walk to Pub Street. The indoor pool was fantastic, and they also had a pool table upstairs. This place always fills up, so BOOK EARLY!
