We had to do a double-take when the owner told us the prices she’s charging for this place.

With dorms at $1.50, and rooms for $3 to $4 depending on size, we though we’d surely misheard, especially as we’d already had a look at the rooms. You’re not going to get palatial at these prices, but they were clean, with intact sheets, the dorms have mosquito nets, sockets and a light available to each bed (generally shared with the bed next door) and on top of that, literally, there’s a great rooftop bar, the site of many a happy session.

The restaurant serves a small selection of Khmer and Western food at prices that match, including burgers from $2, an omelette for $1, and stir-fried noodles with meat for $2. It’s hard to beat. The owner speaks good English and was very welcoming and friendly. Moreover, you’re in the middle of town, without being in the thick of the traffic. We’d stay there even if budget wasn’t compelling us to do so.
