    'Deluxe' room full of cockroaches! Dirty bed sheets. Staff changed the bed sheets without any problem, but did nothing about the insects. They refused to find me a different room, so I had to leave the hotel after midnight to seek a new one. Last night of my hols being a real dream...

    one of the best hotels in town”
    after trying out a few accommodations in PP, Billabong Hostel is the place where i will go back again and recommend to stay. Very good value for money and location. The rooms are nice, clean, including private bathroom (rooms for 1 to 3 persons), warm water, drinking water, fridge. the pool area is big, clean and a quiet place in the noisy city. the evenings where quiet, no big parties going on in the hostel area the few nights i was there. There are plenty of options outside. most of the places of interest around the city are in walking distance or can be reached easily by TukTuk. Laundry service available at normal price. Food is ok, but i recommend to get food at the many delicious places around the city. Make sure you have your passport with you. without or with only a copy of it, you may not be allowed to stay. Staff is not very friendly, but ok and helpful if you ask for something.

    You simply cannot beat the value. For less than $5 you have access to a swimming pool, excellent staff, and a very social common area ideal for meeting other travelers. I left a pair of glasses at Billabong hostel and they are even shipping them back to me. Wonderful stay and service, I will be back.

    worth the price”
    I can totally recommend the Billabong Hostel. Pool area and bar is really nice. The water is pure and towels are provided. Stayed in a 10-bed dorm room. Beds are comfortable, power slots and light for every bed, AC works well. The bathroom is very nice too, but just one bath room (shower, sink and toilet in one room) for 10 people is sometimes not enough... Staff is super friendly and helpful. Comfy social area inside and bar outside. Food is fantastic, of course a lil bit more expensive than when you go out for food. And I can totally recommend to book the tour to S21 and killing fields for 7$ - I think that's a must see! ...will make you speechless...

    Totally understated from the outside- you could walk past it and not even know it was there; very different to everything Asian with their ostentatious facades, and poor quality inside!!! Staff are very efficient and friendly, beautiful pool, and roomy western style rooms, with a/c that works wel!!!

    Very comfortable beds and large, spacious rooms. But, the food prices on premises are a bit too high, and there's no way to purchase just coffee. They only allow you to buy combination of coffee, pretty basic juce from concerntrate and water, even if you want just coffee.

    Awesome with a few Cons”
    Stay at Billabong was awesome, sheets, toilets, common areas and the pool were absolutely clean. I'm surprised that they even provided towels and pad locks for your personal belongings to be kept safe. They also provided a seperate towel at the pool. AC was so cooling and made my stay even better. Staff speaks good English and communicates well. They organise tours to Killing Fields, S-21 and Sunset Cruise. If you are travelling to other cities of Cambodia, they gladly book a bus for you as well with various timings that suits you. Most importantly, wifi is strong all around the property. So don't you need to worry when you are in your room, at the pool or having breakfast at the cafe. On the downside, the café food was mediocre and expensive! A breakfast set of eggs, toast and bacon cost USD3.50 and free flow coffee/ tea/ or orange juice cost USD1.50. Personally, I don't recommend having breakfast here, but if you just want to chill within the property, please go ahead. I'll highly recommend you to take a short walk (5mins/ 700m) down to The Central Market where they serve authentic local food at a fraction. Get a bowl of beef noodle at USD1.75, fish porridge with dough fritter at USD1.50, iced coffee at USD1 Or Sugar Cane at USD0.75. There's definitely more variety to suit your taste bud. Also, they do not allow late check-out. You may continue to use the facilities, or hang out at the lounge. But they do not have any shower area for you to wash up, they could only offer you the open outdoor showers which is beside the pool. Most travellers staying here are Europeans. Didn't get to meet any Asians during my 2 night stay here! Till then, enjoy and travel well :)

    Saw bed bugs and slept quite uneasily as a result. We did get bitten but not sure if this was the mosquitos or the bed bugs. No hot water at all in the shower on level one no matter what time of day. Pool was good.

    Great location, pool, restaurant, social area ”
    Great location close to department store, general market, the riverside is a 20 mins walk away. The pool is great for cooling off and socialising, and once you jump out you can have khmer dishes or western ones, I recommend the green curry as it was amazing. Great bathrooms in the dorms, and balconies too. It is quite busy so keep an eye on your belongings and towel as someone took mine and I had to pay 5 dollars deposit...

    This place is ideal for backpackers who like to travel on budget but also enjoy just a day laying by the pool. This was the first place I came to on my SE Asia trip and it started very well. The room was super clean and thankfully the air con worked very well! Beds are spacious and the locker underneath the bed seemed very safe. The pool is nice and big and there were enough places for everyone. This hostel is a bit quieter than some of the other ones, but I thought it was ideal. Bar has beer for 1 dollar and cocktails for 2.

    This is one of the nicest places I have stayed in Phnom Penh, easy to chill out here for a few days. I think the food and drink was overpriced but I think that's just what you get for a nice place in the city. The pool is huge and rooms are spacious too. The shower was amazing, hot water!!! Rooms and bathroom were kept clean, food is good but as I said overpriced. Busier than some other places but for good reason!

    This is a good place to stay. It is near the bus station for you to go to other places in Cambodia. The central market is also nearby. The hostel might not be easily located and if you found it, it is easy for you to explore the places around. There is a supermarket market and a movie cinema nearby. The Royal Palace and the riverside are within walking distance. There is a swimming pool in the hostel for you to escape the hot weather. Only negative point is that breakfast is not included in the room rate.
