“Best hostel in Kep”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

I stayed 4 months in Kep working for a NGO and every week-end Kepmandou was my hang-out to meet locals and travellers. It was the hotel I recommended to friends passing by and I stayed myself there for a week when I came back during a road-trip around Asia.

Great people and great place in a quiet area. Bar offers the best margaritas i've tried. Breakfast is a very cheap for its quality.

Joe and Sok (the owners) will help you to get around Kep and discover this lovely part of Cambodia.

Eventually, if you stay there you'll have the chance meet some kids and teenagers from Sok's French school.

I'll be back!

Living in Phnom Penh, I've been many times in this Guest House and since the first day, I felt like at home!!! Very nice and quiet, in front of the sea, Kepmandou is the best place to chill out in Kep!
Last time I came, we were 8 friends, and did not want to move elsewhere...
The owners are very kind and always at your disposal to provide everything to make your trip easy and fun. People who come to this place are usually pretty cool so even if you come on your own, you will never feel alone, except if you want to! The bedrooms are nice, the common room is wildly open and well-decorated, with hammocks and woody chairs, a charming place to chat, read or take a nap...

Thank you the whole staff for the excellent service and the great atmosphere at Kepmandou!

Ps: try the breakfast, it's worth it!

Room Tip: The dorm is really nice for three people (we were even four last time) with a private bedroom. My co...

Kepmandou is the nicest place I have stayed in Cambodia or Thailand...also for the best price! I am a budget traveler so I loved the very nice dorm room for $4. Of course, they also have a variety of private rooms available. The terrace is an amazing place to chill, relaxing and welcoming with ocean view. This place had the atmosphere and artistic touches of a boutique guesthouse but with much much more.....you have to experience it for yourself, I highly recommend it.

Really nice relaxed place. Great view on the sea from the terrace/chilling area. The owners are really friendly and manage to create a family like experience. You have different types of rooms but everything seems clean and functional.

A very pleasant guesthouse in front of the sea, and a very good welcoming. It was nice to chill on the terasse. If you choose this place you should definitely eat there, excellent local food! Thanks a lot for these few days. ;)
