Here Be Dragons
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 February 2014

Living up to every expectation and more.
The Dragons really know how to make you feel at home...
Welcoming, friendly and genuine staff offering a smile on a plate. Catering for all at a reasonable price. Clean and comfortable. Great food. It speaks for itself when an intentional 1 night stay ends up being 5...
Be sure to make a reservation as this gem unarguably books up fast...
Thanks for making our stay in Battambang one to remember.

Me and Declan stayed in a dorm room here and had an absoultely brilliant time. Dorm was comfortable the bunk beds are very big. Staff are friendly and helpful, would sort out/call tuk tuk drivers, arrange visas, onward buses, but most of all just a really relaxed friendly environment great for meeting people. They put plenty of events on pilates/ barbecue (in the really nice garden) to name a few. Jen and Ferg who run it are definitely up for a laugh and also a special mention to Frankie who was also lots of fun. Food was fabulous can't recommend enough!

I loved my stay here in the dorm room.

Very welcoming and friendly staff - started with the welcome beer and continued from there.

Big dorm beds, lockers, nice showers, amazing food and dangerously sociable bar!

Pub quiz is really popular, make sure you're there in time for a table!

Is a little walk out of town, but only 10minutes and a nice walk along the river and park.

Had a great stay, only a half marathon around Angkor Wat dragged me away!!

Visiting Battambang for 3 days, staying at the Here Be Dragons was so much fun, the staff and management are so much fun, the atmosphere was relaxing. They have dorms to double rooms and a roof top area where you can just chill out, in the garden which is beautiful there is hammock areas, food was sensational, and the inside bar was a great meeting place & cheap drinks. On arrival from the bus station i was met by a local tuk tuk driver to take me to the front door, this I wasn't expecting - awesome service to have, not only that he also drove to some awesome sights around Battambang at a good price.You do really feel like your at home. All facilities was clean daily. You even get your own personal locker if staying in the dorm, and a free beer on arrival. Keep up the great work guys, one of the better hostels I've stayed at over the world.

The people working here are the must amazing bunch of people I have come across! They helped out me and my friend in some very trying circumstances and genuinely cared. The atmosphere is also great with heaps if backpackers hanging out and having a good time. Even if you don't stay here come and hang out and eat and meet fellow travellers

Really awesome place to chill out on hammocks, swing seats and cushions. Meet lots of other backpackers and had an awesome night doing their pub quiz (theres one every week). Staff are awesome and really friendly and really looked out for me when I got ill. Thanks!

I stayed here for two nights in a double room. It was unbeatable value. The staff were really helpful. I agree with other reviewers, the beds are a little hard and the aerobics sessions in the park in the morning can be a little noisy. This was not an issue for me as I was up early each day to do things. The food is really good and there is a wide variety. This is an excellent budget option.
