The very smartly designed—almost faultless—and superbly-organised Onederz Hostel ought to provide the blueprint for any budget hostel.

Spotlessly clean white hallways surround a small pool and lead to beautifully laid out and well-appointed dorms and bathrooms.

Though tiny, Onederz Hostel is all so neatly and scrupulously arranged you feel the place may have been designed by a shipbuilder. The air-con dorms are sparkling clean and every bunk has its own reading light and electric socket. Meanwhile, the mattresses look firm and comfortable, a world apart from the threadbare affairs we’ve seen in other establishments in the same price range. We got the impression they actually respect their customers and that just because you’re paying $7 a night doesn’t mean you should be sleeping in a dump.

Taking centre stage is a small, inviting turquoise pool with seating arranged to the sides. Like the rest of Onederz, it’s a chilled out place, which seems set-up for sharing conversations over drinks or lunch, rather than riotous raucousness. Out the front opposite reception, a common area continues the relaxed vibe. A small bar and restaurant serves up drinks, including cocktails for $2 to $3, and offers a short menu of mostly western breakfasts or noodle soups plus Khmer dishes for lunch and dinner, all priced again at between $2 and $3.

The small, open-plan TV and lounge area is lined with comfy cushions and you’ll find books and computers here too. Staff were particularly helpful and friendly and there is of course plenty of travel advice and assistance on hand.

The only issue is the somewhat awkward location down a muddy alley on the far, downtown, side of the Golden Lion Roundabout. This does necessitate a good 10-minute walk down to the beach and means you do have to take your life in your hands to negotiate the manic traffic circle every time you want to go anywhere. Location aside though Onederz does come highly recommended.
