Avoid at all cost”
First nighr rhere was bedbugs in the room - Two beds were infected. The guy at the reception invites his crew everynight and they start to scream all night long, it s irritating and my ears couldn't handle it anymore. It seems they are i n the playground. There is a big lck of electricity pug as I couldnt even plug my tablet in the room. To be honest, avoid this hostel, worst in town. even for the price, avoid.

No large double room exist. Don't get ripped off”
Don't book the large double room. You pay more and just get the small double room. Customer service is just terrible. I don't think the owner knows anything about marketing or good customer service. Ask to get fresh towels like 10 times. Never got them. Stay away from this place.

Don't get rip off by getting 40sq room”
Paid more to have the more expensive double room. Owner says that room doesn't exist and just gave me the cheaper room. Blame the mistake on Agoda. service = terrible bed = not real mettress. styrofoam mattress. Bring your own towels. They run out. Only hand soap in the bathroom.

Mouldy”
Our room should not have been available to use, insanely hot, the fan was dirty so it just sprayed hot dusty air all over the room, it was damp and mouldy. When I say mouldy I’m talking mouldyyyyy, you really could not breathe in the room. The shared bathroom was mouldy, damp and crazy hot, the shower was ok, but I jumped in and out because the smell was awful, hot, mouldy, sh1t all rolled into one smell! Also the towels made me and my girlfriend very itchy, so no idea what’s going on there. Payed £5 a night and we thought how bad could it be? BAD was the answer, you could not pay me to sleep in that room again. The staff were nice and friendly, I believe they bought the place a few months ago and are working on it. HOWEVER when you’re from Denmark (owners) you should understand that mould THAT bad is seriously bad for your health.. the excuse that it’s just Cambodia is ridiculous, have some standards because it’ll punish you in the end. I didn’t want to write this because I liked you guys, but we’ve not stayed anywhere in such bad condition for that price the whole way round Asia in the last 4 months!! Until you get all this mould, damp, heat, and ventilation sorted, some rooms should not be available!!

Bed bugs n dark n smelly bathrooms ”
I stayed at dorm room with 12 beds. There are two bathrooms with no lights n no bed lights at the Dorm room. Not enough concents for all. Cleaners don’t clean the floors they changed sheets n only. In the dark n humit Dorm we killed many incects such as bed bugs cockroaches n mosquitoes. I told about insects but ppl at hostel they didn’t care at all. I went to buy things to kill the insect n afterwards went to pharmacy to get steroid creams , painkiller , antibiotics n anti histamine tables to recover. On the other side I saw so many guests eat and drink at on their beds..... I was speechless for that....
