If you're after a dorm room and a chilled out vibe, British-Australian Easy Tiger, in the heart of M'Pay Bei village, seems to be the best-run option around on Koh Rong Samloem.

They also offer four bungalows, tucked away directly behind the dorm building.
The bungalows don't have views of anything much -- just the pizza oven! -- but this isn't much different to the other new bungalows under construction, which similarly lack sea views. There is a small beach directly in front, or the main beach is a five-minute walk away. Better yet, head to the pier and run and jump straight off, or hire a kayak.
The wooden dorm rooms are simple affairs with bunk beds. Out the front of the building is a porch area with round chairs that looked good for meeting other travellers. Power runs here 24/7 thanks to solar panels, a big plus that sets Easy Tiger apart from the other options on the tip of Koh Rong Sanmloem.
If you're after a dorm room and a chilled out vibe, this seems to be the best-run option around and the bungalows were pretty solid too, especially the newer ones. With regards to the bungalows, we prefer those at Sunset Bungalows
only because of their setting. Easy Tiger's were a fraction more spacious and visibly newer though.
