Paul’s Backpack Hostel is where a social hub and a great place to stay to meet other travellers with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, Just a stone’s throw from the excitement and bustle of the heart of the city within a walking distance to Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda, Museum, Old market Wat Phnom, and Night Market. It’s the perfect base for exploring the city and relaxing afterwards.
