The staff here are awesome. The rooms cheap, beds comfy and bar constantly stocked. The only downer was the internet. No wifi and only one crappy laptop next to reception. They say it was because they want people to be social but it made it very hard to leave since you couldn't research where to go next! The place is quite a way from the beach and you'll have to get a yuk yuk every time you go to Otres or Shianoukville since none of the bicycles work! But I literally had THE BEST time here. I was there for Christmas 2013 and everyone there made the place like one big family. The best thing about this place is the FREE dorm. If you are a long term stayer you can literally sleep in a dorm free - they just make money off you from the bar and restaurant. The private rooms are gorgeous and super clean and the common area comfy and social. Eddie the owner is a legend :). TIP: If in the dorm don't leave valuable out as they might go missing (I had $50 stolen by a room mate while in the shower).
