“Basic”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Good location, short walk to Serendipity Beach with lots of bars, restaurants and shops along the way down. Room is very basic with great air con, but poor WIFI. Shower was good with hot water.
Good beds with thin sheets. Basic and cheap.

We stayed at Sakal for a few nights in a basic room ($13 a night) the room was fine pretty standard except the smell of sewage was disgusting! everyday when we would go in our room it would stink it was so gross we had to switch hotels for the remainder of our time in Sihanoukville! Also there were 2 Cambodian men that worked here that wouldnt leave my friend and I alone it got to the point where we would not want to go use the wifi in the main area because they were so rude and annoying! Which was weird since every other cambodian we met was so friendly!

This place is a little more expensive (30$ for three people) than many other guesthouses, but it is worth it! It is more like a hotel, the staff clean your room on request and they are very friendly. The shower is big and the hotel is close to the beach! They also have dorms

The room was spacious and bright; the bed was comfortable and the TV was very good as was WiFi. However, the only time the water was hot was once when I randomly checked it; regretfully every time I went to actually take a shower, the water was not even warm.
The location is perfect to allow one to be at the beach or going to the many numerous restaurants.
And Gary is the ace to the whole deal. He was not only very friendly but helpful with a vast trove of knowledge of the area and the people. You want it or need it; ask him. Great guy.

Room Tip: Verify you have hot water

Really liked the room.... Very modern, private bathroom with shower screen even. Hot water only lasts couple of minutes though. Bed is real comfortable, air con works well.
Room came with balcony, but this is not a selling point- it over looks a dumping yard/ building site.
Overall, good place, good location but could have been a but cheaper. (Before we went to koh rong we stayed over road, same spec room, same price but with a swimming pool)

We needed one night accommodation before going to the islands. We didn't want to stay on the main section because we found the vendors to be quite pushy and this was the first place in Cambodia were we saw children being exploited and we didn't feel comfortable with it. Victory beach is very quiet and has a great sunset, this place cost us $15 for an air con room (#12) it was close to the restaurant- if people are staying up you can hear it and occasionally a loud bang as staff clean u etc. Room itself was average - clean but sheets were old and had small holes, bathroom had musty smell. We wouldn't stay again but it wasn't a bad experience and staff we're nice, helpful and friendly

We had just spent a week on Koh Rong Samloen and so hadnt had a hot shower for a week and so this may have contributed to why we liked this place so much. the beds were comfy, the location was pretty good and we thought it was good value for money.
Would really recommend the food in the restaurant but theres loads of other places nearby.
Id stay here again, it was fine
