Worth it”

Before arriving here i didn't expect much as i know their price undoubtly cheap. Yeah it's look old from outside and also a bit spooky if you walk along the corridors and walk up and down using their old stairs. Especially if you found no body at night.:) But anyway their services is great. The old guy staff who working on check in desk is really friendly. I'm satisfied staying here. Their dorm bed is clean. It's more than good enough to spend overnight with just a few bucks.

Filth”

Pros: Good location for central Phnom Penh and cheap for budget minded travellers Cons: This hostel is filthy. We had to create a makeshift drain blocker as the smell from the drains was unbearable. You wake up to the smell of raw sewage in a humid room with no A/C, not only this, but the room had clearly not been cleaned prior to arrival as there was a thick layer of dirt on the bed frame and floors as well as stains on the bedding. The electric socket has a black burn mark from a small fire which was poorly covered up. In short, yes you can get a private room for $9 per night, but please don’t.

When 3 dollars per night is bad value...”

While understanding that one cannot expect much from 3 dollar dorm room, there are a lot of them in the same price range and this place is horrible compared to them. I stayed in 10-bed dorm. To start, I booked my room at 2 dollar price in Agoda. However at check-in I was forced to pay three dollars as there are "taxes". The WC's were shockingly horrible. Toilet got stuck every time, door had holes in it and there was not even a lock on the toilet door, which lead to embarrassing situations several times. Fan next to my bed was broken. Balcony and toilet area were also incredibly dirty. After smoking one cigarette bare foot on the balcony, my feet were literelly black as coal One of the receptionist (female, seemed like a manager of sort) was a bit rude. I had a nice day out and when I came back around midnight, tired and bit tipsy I was forced to change my room, only excuse being "it's better for you". AVOID THIS PLACE, There are several in same area within the same price range.

It's just ok”

It was cheap and near city center but sadly the facilities were bad. No towel, drinking water or kettle. Toilet was small even for a small sized guy and the door was not in good condition. You might need to deposit extra money for the locker at the ground floor if the lockers in the room you stay are fully used by other travelers. This issue occurs as some of the keys for the lockers were not returned or was lost. The other cons if you stay at level 4 (if not mistaken), you have to walk the stairs all the way up as there is no lift. This can be tiring after a long day of traveling. The overall cleanliness was just ok. It's not too noisy during the night.
