Wish You Were Here... Guesthouse & Bar
Reviewed 26 March 2012

I heard about Wish You Were Here before it opened and planned to stay at it for a long time before, and when I arrived I was not disappointed. It was exactly the atmosphere I was looking for in accomodation, firstly, the location on the beautiful Otres Beach is like no other, a paradise still a secret gem untoiuched by the loud, tourist effect spreading through many beaches of South East Asia. The owners and general staff were the best staff I encountered throughout my whole 3 month trip in Asia, always willing to help you, even when they were rushed off their fit, not only that, I made a new family at Wish You Were Here, and it felt as if when every set of new guests arrived they were welcomed into the little family spirit that they created. I had my christmas and my birthday at Wish You Were Here and it was more than I could have hoped for, I had the best festive season ever. I stayed at Wish You Were for almost a month, despite trying to leave to other places on several occasiosns, me and my friends couldnt bring ourselves to leave such a beautiful place and such wonderful people. The food only just started to get off the ground when we were there but it was superb and definitely had the edge compared to alot of the similar style menus in Sihanoukville.I stayed in the dorms for almost 4 weeks and found them really comfortable, affordable and safe, you have your all trunk style locker for stuff but alot of time I left my things unlocked or on my bed, kind of gives an idea of the safe, trusting atmosphere at this place. I still think about Wish You Were Here all the time and know I will visit these guys again, staying here is an amazing experience that everyone should try :)

Wish You Where Here has only been open since late December 2011 and I have already been there twice! My first stay was 3 days after they opened, and my first impression was, true hospitality. I have stayed in all their types of accommodations, the dorms are really good, you get your own box so you can lock your stuff in it and I slept like a baby every night, and the dorms are cheap. The bungalows are really cosy, it is a stereotypically bungalow, people nowadays can call pretty much everything a bungalow even if it's not even close, but these ones are real bungalows. The place is located close to the best beach in sihanoukville, you can through a rock from the lounge/bar into the ocean. The lounge/bar is the best, you can really relax in the most comfortable sofas and swingchairs, also the food is very tasty, from the fried rice to the beef burger. All together I stayed at Wish You Where Here for almost 4 weeks.

The second time I was there I brought my girlfriend, and she has now also found here little paradise.

Loved my stay at Wish you were here.

Az and the other owner were very friendly and helpful.

The set up and the atmosphere at the bar are second to none, so many places to relax (hanging baskets a must) and other places to enjoy drinks with other backpackers I met there!

The french girl making cocktails definitely has a knack for them and the menu was limited but when the food family came out it was worth the wait!

Felt like a home away from home... Counting the days til I go back :)

Room Tip: I enjoyed staying in the bungalows for the privacy of my own room and there also close to the shower...

The owners were on sight, which was great. But one was permanently stoned. I was greeted by one with a joint in his mouth.....and this just continued all day and into the night. My room was above the bar, so the marihuana smoke found its way into my room.
There are only 4 toilets/showers and two were unavailable for use. Doors were broken or off their hinges.
The bar was the best part, until guests walk down in their pj's and light up a joint while you're trying to enjoy breakfast. And that was nothing fancy.
For $15 a night you can find better elsewhere.
