This is probably the best place to stay in Siem Reap for this price. They have regular rooms too, can't comment there, I stayed in the dorm. Clean room, towel provided, clean bathrooms down the hall, good food, nice new swimming pool. Staff are not as friendly as they could be sometimes, and will overcharge you to book onward transport. Book your bus ticket in town. Bunks are squeaky and wobbly, there are no lockers, and they need more electrical outlets. If you ask, you can get a top sheet and a blanket. No A/C is a bummer, barking dogs at night, and there are a couple mosquitos, but that's Cambodia for you.
