A stalwart, Narin has been around since virtually before time began, and though it’s not brilliantly located, unless you plan on spending time hanging aroundPhsar Orussey, it's still very popular with backpackers, probably because its rooms are reasonable and the staff friendly.
Also, a night's stay is about the same price as a few hours at an internet cafe. The rates are good and a pleasant, open-air restaurant on the first floor offers reasonable local and international food, and the chance of a decent chat with your fellow travellers. We liked the ground floor rooms best, as they offered more space and light, but that may well be paid for in noise during the mornings. Narin 2, its nearby sister hotel, is much nicer and more popular, but its room prices start twice as high.
