What we say:
Set up by the enterprising Mr T (who has now moved to Banlung) this has long been the most popular traveller guesthouse in Stung Treng. It's no great shakes, but the rooms are clean and the riverfront option does have a river view. All have attached cold-water shower (ours had terrible water pressure) and soft beds with plain bedding. Free WiFi works reasonably. Downstairs is a cafe cum hang-out area, with a couple of tables out front ideal for large BeerLaos under the glaring Stung Treng afternoon sun. Travel information is available and there are a small selection of guidebooks and under Cambodia-focused books available for sale. It doesn't quite have the traveller vibe it once did, but will do for the single night most travellers will spend in Stung Treng. If full, the Chhum Nor Thurn Le Guesthouse next door handles overflow.

Cell phone stolen
We got a room that was nice enough, with a big window overlooking the river. People working there were pretty nice too.
The problem arose when we took a 2 day tour, keeping the room even though we were going to be away. We left our things in the room and when we came back two days later we found that a cell phone had been stolen from our backpacks.
We were sure that we had left it right there just before leaving.
When we told the owner of what had happened he told us that they had had the key the whole time and that no one had entered the room, except that someone certainly did.
If you go there keep your valuables with you and don´t leave them in the room. I guess you should always do that :) but here do it for sure!

Don't Buy Tickets Here Either
I was overcharged on my ticket from the border to Don Dhet. Also, they will tell you there is no boat to the border, even if you paid for one and you will have to take a car over the bumpy dirt roads.
