All you need in one place”
Great beds, big bathrooms (could be cleaner), freezing aircon. With the Pool and the restaurant, it is easy to relax and forget about the crowded city. I kept extending my stay because I was very comfortable here. Good location, close from the centre, but in a quiet neighbourhood.
Complain to the people in cambodie. Here are all the staff really friendly and helpful. A really nice stay to chill swimm in the big pool or go look around. Everithing is just on the courner. I was enjoy my stay there 😊
Beds are great, shower was good and the area around the pool is great. A good place to meet people and stay around the pool. I didn't find phnom penh as good as other cities in Cambodia to tourist around so I've enjoyed the fact that the hostel had a good atmosphere. The staff in the reception and in the bar could be much nicer, they would solve your problem but they were always disinterested in helping you and would only do the minimum necessary
Good, clean, well-located hostel in Phnom Penh. Friendly staff, good facilities (including a computer and printer free to use) and a restaurant with reasonable prices and good food. Definitely recommended
I had a great time in the hostel. The way it is built, it is like if we have an apartment with 7 other people. The restaurant is nice, but pricy.
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.
i just hope that there's privacy curtain per bed 🙂 i rated the staff with only 4⭐ because they were not as friendly as the one i encountered in siem reap. but overall it was nice. i like staying and chilling at the pool area 👍🏻

Too hot in bedroom. Air-con is not powerful enough.”
Air-con in the room, not powerful enough. Please install ceiling fans, help circulation of air and help cooler. Too warm in the room, sweat when you sleep. Group of people change to another hostel. The pool is nice.

Rude receptionist and liers ”
First off I would say for this Pos company to give me my money back when I clearly never stayed there. The rude receptionist told me that they do not charge and pay at property. I told her to cancel on Agoda and she said no, you have to do it. Well behold I’m charged a day of stay and never stayed there because I had no passport because at the motorbike rental place. Very dissatisfied with the people working the counter. So many others complain and I would say it is true.
I liked the swimming pool”
Hostel for backpackers. It has everything you need pool, relax area, bar, computer, helpful staff. Only complaining that wifi did not work in room which was a bit annoying
You simply cannot beat the value. For less than $5 you have access to a swimming pool, excellent staff, and a very social common area ideal for meeting other travelers. I left a pair of glasses at Billabong hostel and they are even shipping them back to me. Wonderful stay and service, I will be back.
Have stayed at this hotel on many occasions and never fails to impress with the standard of the hotel. It’s a little oasis in the heart of the city. Great pool. Staff are amazing and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Hotel policy is fantastic.
worth the price”
I can totally recommend the Billabong Hostel. Pool area and bar is really nice. The water is pure and towels are provided. Stayed in a 10-bed dorm room. Beds are comfortable, power slots and light for every bed, AC works well. The bathroom is very nice too, but just one bath room (shower, sink and toilet in one room) for 10 people is sometimes not enough... Staff is super friendly and helpful. Comfy social area inside and bar outside. Food is fantastic, of course a lil bit more expensive than when you go out for food. And I can totally recommend to book the tour to S21 and killing fields for 7$ - I think that's a must see! ...will make you speechless...
Good value for money with great atmosphere”
Exceptional staff always willing to help with anything. Good food at good prices available. Room was as accurate to the photos and description. Would definitely stay again and will recommend to other travellers
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 :)
Value for money. ”
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.
swimming pool looks nice. facilities inside the room are nice and new. the reception can help you book bus ticket to other cities which is helpful. Breakfast is good but have to pay extra money. service is good
