Yong Hout Guesthouse
Solid value, local atmosphere
What we say:
The unapologetically green Yong Hout occupies a bustling corner on Street 136 between Phnom Penh's must-see Central Market and Norodom Boulevard. It's a central, local, not-so-touristy location just a couple of streets from the night-life of Street 51 and a 10-minute walk to the river. Bright rooms with large windows come with choice of fan or air-con and all come with TVs, attached bathrooms and bright purple bedspreads that clash wonderfully with the walls. Some rooms are a little different from others and beds were softer in some, so it's worth checking out a few before settling in.
A popular cafe occupies the ground floor, and the guesthouse is home for a number of TEFL teachers who work at the large language school nearby -- buy them a beer and watch the terrific Phnom Penh info come rolling in, usually along with a hair-raising story or two.
In a city where dirt cheap rooms are a thing of the past, Yong Hout offers reasonable value for those seeking a more "local" atmosphere. Flashpackers and couples seeking a more romantic setting in this area will probably prefer Billabong Hotel while backpackers looking for something cheaper might check out Happy 21 closer to the river.
