Riverside Restaurant and Guesthouse
Riverside Guesthouse has long been the most popular traveller guesthouse in Stung Treng, but is beginning to outlive its usefulness.
Its most obvious draw is that it’s a better place to meet other travellers than other guesthouses in town, but aside from that, the rooms are only barely clean, and it’s hard to justify a bucket shower when you can have proper hot water showers a few doors down, for only $1 more.
Despite having an interior room at the hottest time of year, we didn’t find it excessively hot, however the mattress was one of those ones that do tend to radiate heat back at you. The meeting place would be the downstairs cafe and hang-out area, with a couple of tables out front ideal for large Beerlaos under the glaring Stung Treng afternoon sun.
Some travel information is available, though our enquiries turned out to be fruitless, and there is a small selection of guidebooks and Cambodia-focused books available for sale. You can hire bicycles here for $3 a day.
