Siem Reap Hostel

Siem Reap Hostel

More on Siem Reap

Only two minutes’ walk from the centre of town and probably the first traveller-focused hostel to have opened in Siem Reap, Siem Reap Hostel is still going strong, winning accolades for their great service and commitment to fun.

Travelfish says:

If you’re keen to meet other people, like a party and a relaxed atmosphere, this is the place you’re looking for. The reception is staffed by a very friendly team, who speak excellent English, and have marvellous senses of humour (they probably need to). From there you move past the communal computers and into the bar area, which is lively and also home to one of the only indoor pools in Siem Reap. There’s always a party brewing or in the works, and if that doesn’t float your boat, there’s an abundance of board games, books, a pool table upstairs, DVD library and chill out room with a large screen and DVD player, daily yoga classes, Nintendo Wii, spa services, a weekly barbecue, occasional gigs, lady boy bingo, beer pong, and whatever madnesses come into the managers’ heads to entertain their guests. They make a virtue here of hiring young, energetic managers who take their Master of Fun role seriously.

The private rooms all have the needful, including air-con, TV, hot water and security box. There are mixed and female-only dorm rooms, which accommodate six, with a shared bathroom and air-con. They offer special rates for volunteers staying longer term.
