Stayed here for two nights and it was really nice! The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean and spacious. BreaKfast is good with a nice tomato cheese omelet. The greatest thing is the balcony and the restaurant which have both a view over the river. I enjoyed drinking a beer during happy hour while the sun was going...

We stayed here for 2 nights and found it cheap and very pleasant. The two staff members downstairs were awesome!! They made us feel very welcome and I even played a few games of pool with one of them. The bedrooms were basic and they have a pricey food menu but it's great food. All in all I have read...

The room and bathroom were fine and standard for the price. The pizza is very good here. And included in the room was free breakfast which was a massive bonus. Only problem was they gave us a room which didn't lock and I didn't particularly feel comfortable with it. Apart from that the beer was a little expensive but we...

Nice hostel with good location. I hired a scooter to go around the town and see the Sweetwater dolphins! The ferry for the island is right next door and there is enough places around for food. The hostel itself has pizza's for great value. The staff made my stay extra comfortable they where always there to help.

Friendly staff, spacious room. Previous reviews about bugs are because of the two large balconies with lights on them, attracting bugs at night. Not an issue but the bedroom doors do have quite large gaps so quite a few come in. Shared bathroom is quite gross - spiders and ants everywhere and the shower drain quickly blocks with lots of...

I stayed here for 2 nights in the dorm, which I had to myself for the whole time and has double beds ($5 per night, which included breakfast). The beds are really comfy, the staff are all very helpful, HOWEVER there is a HUGE insect problem which kind of ruined the whole experience for me. The first bed they gave...

Hello and thank you for your comment. We are sorry for the inconvenience We made calls to a professional, we expect shortly. But I would inform that during the rainy season in Cambodia, all kinds of insects come. Thank you to remember to bring a spray.

Very hard to find this hotel as they recently relocated further along the riverfront and are now tucked away above a supermarket. Google maps has yet to update their location so we walked around for a long time before we could find them. The staff were really nice and helpful on arrival and the food while on the pricey side...

Food and service are pretty good at the Balcony. They did have a pretty bad case of bedbugs there in the ratan beds..... Not good at all. The manager did not seem to care much, the mrs was very apologatic and helpfull and gave me a small discount.
