More than my money's worth
Only negative thing is the location which was very noisy. Walking distance from Central Market

Comfy place, clean and friendly staff.
The swimming pool is a must in Phnom Penh, and they have it! Also with towels. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Billabong is one of the cleanest hostel I've ever been. I stayed in a 8bed room with bathroom ensuite and it was clean all the time. The sheets smell really good. It worth the price. The only thing I missed is the breakfast, or at least other prices. But if I go back to Phnom Penh any time, I will choose this hostel again.

What a shower!
Fantastic all around. Beds bigger than normal. Sturdy construction. A pool! Fast wifi. Cheap. ... Was there in low season so not all dorm beds full. Could be tough with one bathroom for 8 beds in a room. Regardless, the waterfall shower is a highlight!

Great showers
I stayed in a 4bed dorm (no bunk beds!) for 2 nights. It was low season and I actually had the whole room all on my own. Most impressive was the huge bathroom with rainfall shower and 2 sinks. Really good. The room was basic but very clean and quiet with big lockers. Location is quite central in a little dark alley (safe and quiet). I did most the tourispots on feet from there which wasn't that bad. Personnel was very nice and helpful with infos and bookings and you can also hire bikes.. Note, that this is also a hotel, so a bit more than the usual backpacker vibe. Really enjoyed my stay here and can nothing but recommend.

Good hotel
Stayed 3 nights in the twin share room with my daughter, room was clean and everything worked. Staff were helpful and the location is only a short tuk tuk ride to most things in town. Multifit power points and rain head shower were handy. Air cond didn't work real great but there was also a ceiling fan which helped.

Luxury for backpackers
I stayed in the dorm room for one night. It was so nice I did not want to leave. It had large beds and a fancy shower/bathroom. Just like the pictures. The pool was also very nice. It was a quiet relaxing place, don't expect to meet many people though. Unfortunately the staff was not very helpful. When I asked for a map they did not have one and and just gave me a generic one without and help. When asking about exchanging money they did not know where I should go and never gave me an answer. Not sure if they were annoyed by me because I am a backpacker or if they were simply understaffed. Everytime I had a question or wanted to drop off my key I had to wait because only one person was working the front desk which was inconvenient. I think if they had two people working this could be avoided and they'd be less stressed and more helpful. The food staff and the owner were very friendly and helpful though. Lots of tuktuks outside who can take you to popular locations for cheap.
