Staff were so great the bar men/bar maids were absolutely lovely . The manager was aggressive and extremely fake which was the only downfall of the hostel. But apart from that nice place to stay if your on a budget stay in Siem Riep . Thanks guys 😘

This hostel was a really good place for us to get all the info we needed on the buses we had to book - the staff were lovely and always willing to help and though the beds were typical hostel beds and the air con in our room broke on the second night we stayed, the atmosphere at this hostel...

Pretty disappointed with my experience here this week. I stayed here two years ago and loved the vibe of the people and the hostel altogether so I was pretty excited to come back. Booked a double room for 3 nights, ended up staying 1. Their website states that the rooms have A/C but when you arrive after booking a certain...

We paid for an air conditioned room and the air con was broken, apparently had been for several days, offered no discount. One of my friend's bed frame was broken, and one friend had a wet mattress. Mosquitoes in all rooms. Management seemed unorganised and charged extra on our tab, which we had to cross off at the end. Only...

We stayed in this hostel for one night as our preferred place was full for our third night in SR. The private room was clean and had a small ensuite but the decor was a little tired and the aircon didn't work as well as we might have liked. The bar area was a cool place to hang out, with...

If you go to Siem Reap, you should stay here. The staff was super friendly and helpful, I felt at home from the first moment on. They are funny, but professional at the same time. I stayed in the 14 people dorm and the beds were really comfy. The hostel has a nice bar and a pool, which is just...

We reserved a room in this hostel via walkin and were told, that it was 15$ per night for a twin room. when we checked out, we were told that the price was 30$ a night (because of new years) and that we must have misunderstood the price, the 15$ should have been per person. We are travelling on a...

We worked here for 3 weeks. We would not recommend this hostel for working experience. As for guest I think the hostel is good for being sociable, close to the city center and the staff is lovely. If you are allergic to cats- don't stay here! The food is GOOD, however the portions are small and overpriced, same with beer....

This was really the worst of all hostels, I've stayed in so far. The beds were broken, everything was dirty, the owner is not nice at all, he mistreated and beat his little puppy, once you checked out you have to pay if you want to stay waiting for your transfer, the airconditioning didn't function properly and the shower were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Clean rooms, secure property, reliable and trustworthy service- that is our guarantee. Downtown Siem Reap Hostel is a hostel with high standards, but with Backpacker and Flashpacker prices. Staffed by a mix of Western and Khmer staff, our success is driven by and primarily due only to the sheer dedication of the Khmer staff employed here. They speak excellent English, serve with a smile, and are here to make your stay as comfortable as possible. British owned and managed, and established in February 2011, Downtown Siem Reap Hostel has become one of the most popular hostels in Siem Reap, and now with a newly built swimming pool, bamboo gardens, and extra rooms, we are able to accommodate and serve 70 guests per night. Our kitchen is open from 7.00am serving a mixture of food from a cheap Backpacker Menu with all eats under $2.50, through Thai and Khmer food and Western favourites - something for all budgets. Our breakfasts have always been a big hit, with set-breakfasts including tea/coffee and juice from $2.50. Our accommodation includes 6 and 8 bed AC dorms, 4 person AC dorms with ensuite bathrooms, fan and AC ensuite twin and ensuite double rooms and a recently completed dorm boasting 2 ensuite bathrooms and floor to ceiling privacy glass walls. Please be aware that there will be a 10% Vat on your final bill. ... more   less
